30 June 2010, Wednesday holiday at Bonifacio High Street. While everyone was tuned in to the Presidency Inauguration, we were at our playground for a television running episode shoot.
Bards (a.k.a Banana Running) and I have been friends since I started blogging and logging my runs, its been 4 years. We were acquainted through blog posts and sms updates with a common denominator that we both wanted to lose weight, maintain and endure.
She was my virtual coach albeit I am the stubborn one with insomnia problems back then but I never stopped trying. She was there to remind me, messaging me constantly if I have already geared up and gained my weekly mileage, and lead me to Couch to 5k which I still get to mix up for my runs every now and then.
She’s actually the one who inspired me to go for Singapore Chartered Marathon, it was her first, I figured, if she was able to do it, I too can albeit its going to be my second. She cheered me on during my first which was The Bull Runner Dream Marathon with tips and tricks. I am truly grateful.
4 years later, we finally met in flesh and both covered on a television show which will be aired this July on Qtv’s xlife.
Thanks Bards for the motivation, encouragement and for introducing me to a new route to run to – you have taught and inspired me once again. It was my first time to run a full 5k without an ipod, too!
Whenever I finish unbelievable mileage, She’s always one of those whom I had to update. I owe her my beginning back into running.
Have I mentioned we’re aiming to lose few more poundage? about 4% on my end, this is where we’re renewing connection.
We’ll be seen on Qtv xlife (an Active Lifestyle Magazine Show) on 21 July 2010, Wednesday, 10:00 pm hosted by Gino De La Paz
