Running beyond the superficiality

I read this from "Dakilang Adventurista," a Facebook page about traveling. It has been shared many times since posted almost a month ago.

Every word has made its point.

What do you think of the essay? Hope you can share your thoughts with me below.

I'm back - so what happened on my one-month hiatus?

I have been away for a month! Geesh! Anyway, here's some excerpts and photos to get the time covered.

Hyundai Run 2012

I ran my first 5K in more than a year, wearing the proud social entrepreneurship color! So glad to finally ran along Roxas Boulevard. Blessings that happened - my father witnessed a running event where I was in, and I slashed a few minutes from my 5K time! Woo hoo!

I ran for social entrepreneurship!

A month later, I saw my singlet being signed by Gawad Kalinga Chairman Tony Meloto, Jr.

When Mr. Meloto became our guest speaker for a company event, I told him that my Hyundai 5K run was for Gawad Kalinga. After the program, he gamely signed my now-more-than-ever-precious Hyundai Run singlet! Thanks, sir!

My Hyundai Run singlet is now in a glass case. :)

Happy birthday to me!

Job gave me a bittersweet treat - I was sent to a brain-wracking news writing seminar out of town. Cool, right? I did a 15-round run within the hotel vicinity after a 10-minute warm up in a treadmill in the gym. The night before, I sent this message via Facebook and Twitter:

A few weeks after, my good ol' high school friend informed me about her birthday gift to me! Thanks, Vanessa!

Running photo album updated! 

I took some time to update my running photo album. It only has two leaves left!

Never put for tomorrow what you can do for today.

This was a lesson taught to me by my former boss' husband, who spent weeks in a coma. I knew him because of our boss, who was the HR Head in the school where I was employed before. We knew the guy as a very active person, a loving husband, and a father to his three boys. When me and my mother visited him in the hospital, I told him that I'll be back for a set of Christian songs for his mp3. He also gave me an 'ok' sign that they will join me for a 5K run once he gets out of the hospital. I never got to come back on time; he passed away just before the month of May ended. My songs never made it and I lost another possible running buddy.

Sir Dan, you taught me a very valuable lesson. I know your family will still be listening to the songs that I gave you, in as much as you are already singing them in the heavens. I dedicated my June 1 morning run to you and to all the dreams and aspirations that I will never put off for tomorrow.

So long, Sir Dan. Thank you for the lesson.

I'm back (both on the road and on the keyboard!)

Wow! I realized I haven't been writing about my road runs! Geesh, sorry; I've been busy for the past month. I just had my birthday (I'm 31!), a part-time online job (check my 2-part story here), books to read (two books arrived in one month!), aching hands (thanks to acupuncture, I'm getting healed!) and the NKOTBSB concert (check my story here).

And so, I'm back - both in running and writing.

Although I don't know how to put things together for sharing! :D

Anyway, I was one of the participants who took advantage of the holiday to go to BGC to get my Run United 2 race kit. People, particularly 21K runners, have received their kits as early as 1 P.M. The other runners under the other categories were lined up past 1 P.M. Regular lanes (that's us) opened at 1:30 P.M. These were all earlier than scheduled. The tents were just being built, but all the staff giving the race kits were all up and about. Even Coach Rio dela Cruz was there, checking every box of race kits and all the staff! Talk about a hands on organizer. In a few minutes, I got my race kit. Cool!

I did not take pictures of the expo. I'm giving them the due since the expo starts today. I'm sure the other participants will enjoy the expo that will run until June 16, 2012. Instead, I took a photo of my kit. I'm so ready for Sunday!

My belt is going to my dad, though. :)
