37th National Milo Marathon.

2nd run for this year. Hehe. One of the most memorable, I guess. Kasi first time namin ni Ate na makasama si Natnat sa run. First time ko mag-run na ‘meron’ ako, saklap kaya fren. Hahaha. First time kong mag-shorts. First run namin na hindi kami hinatid ni Papa. First time sumakit hita at binti ko. Pero basta masaya kasi nakapag-run na uli kami. Hehe. Pagkauwi, grabe haba ng itinulog ko. Hahaha. :) /072813.

For the first time, we joined Milo’s marathon. We ran as a family. It was one of the best bonding moments we’ve had. Plus, my boyfriend came and ran with us. It was extremely exhausting, especially for someone like me who rarely exercises. Good thing, my boyfriend stayed with me until I finished. I owe him one for walking beside me instead of jogging because without him, I might have collapsed or simply gave up the 5K run.


Last Sunday, July 27, my sister and I ran the MILO Marathon. I was actually with her office mates, and we ran 5 kilometers.

I decided not to run with my sister, because she has someone with her and I want to run my heart out. haha! But I did run by myself, constantly irritated with people (that’s my personality, I’m sorry)

Here are some of my thoughts while running (read: jogging x brisk walking):

     - Why is this called fun run? This isn’t fun at all. This is tiring.

     - Ohhhhh I like this song. *pertaining to a song in my iPod* I should remember this song. (I forgot the title of the song right after the run, sucker)

     - Some people do drugs for the high. I felt the high while I was running.

     - So this is why people call it fun run. It really is fun. Sometimes.

     - I wonder how would I meet up with my sister and her friends after the run. I have no money, I didn’t bring my phone.

     - I’m screwed.

     - 500 meters more!!! DON’T GIVE UP ON ME BODY.

And I finished it! This isn’t my first 5k run, I actually ran for my PE subject in UP Diliman. We needed to finish it within 40 minutes. I finished this run for more then 40 minutes. My thoughts: “nako, bagsak na ako sa PE, but actually not bad since I don’t have training!” And then I went to find my sister for like 15 minutes, when I was sure I’m screwed I actually found her just standing over a corner.

We ate at Hap Chan afterwards since no other shops were open by that time. And then went home.

My sister said we should do this again. and I thought: "No let’s not do it again but okay let’s go". I’m such an inconsistent person hahaha I find it funny why.

Muntik na kong masagasaan ng bike.

Milo marathon kanina e, e di yung mga tao takbo to nth level tapos kami nakikkisabay din, pero nung una lang. HAHAHAHA. Napagod kami agad e. Okay lang ganda pa din namin. Char. Tapos yung sintas ko pabida like peter paker 5ever lagi natataggal muntanga na tuloy akong tumatakbo na yung sintas nakalaylay tapos huminto ako saglit para taliin yung sintas. Hutaena, biglang may narinig ako na malakas na preno ng bike. Peter paker sa harap ko pa. Shet ah, nahiya ako kay koya at siya yung nakakakita ng daan at sa harap pa ng nagtatali ng sintas huminto. Tanga niya ano? Sarap ihulog sa balon at palamunin ng mamon. WAHT. HAHAHAHA. Nestea sheyr.

Me? Exercise? Sure.

I haven’t been very active in a while and I promise I’d go back to blogging everyday when I am not buried in projects and tests. I PROMISE. I actually typed a new post a few hours ago, telling all of you that I am very busy and I even listed down the reasons why I have been busy so that all of you know that I have a legit reason but ,of course, my internet connection practically hates me so it just crashed or something when I pressed create post. Seriously. It’s like my internet connection/tumblr prohibits me to post long posts now. This is like the third time that has happened and I really hate it. I don’t want to write the same post all over again. Life is so LAKSHFJDKLAHDSF right now. I’ll write a post about it tomorrow…Wait. I probably shouldn’t make any promises. Let me rephrase that. I’ll write a post about it as soon as I do not feel lazy and pissed at my internet connection for being gone when I had just typed a long post.

So, this week has been busy. I was planning to use sunday as my be-lazy-as-hell day because school has made me tired emotionally and physically. Tomorrow, I am not going to sleep the whole day as I usually do but I would go out, get some fresh air, feel the heat and rays of the sun and actually run. I am going to join the Milo Marathon tomorrow. I am going to run 5 kilometers everybody! I am so proud that I am not being very lazy. I am actually going to run. It’s probably the first time in weeks that I am going to do something so physical. My brother and my dad are going to run 10 kilometers. My sister is going to stay here. SHE IS MUCH LAZIER THAN I AM, I GUESS. I have joined this marathon before. I think when I was 12? I just ran 3 kilometers and I was already very tired. I AM LAZY AND I AM NOT VERY ATHLETIC AND I DO NOT DO ANYTHING VERY PHYSICAL, OKAY? THEY ARE GOOD EXCUSES. I probably reached the finish line after an hour of running because I suck that badly, I know. I last ran in this marathon like 3 years ago? That was 3K. So I am very happy that I am back again and now I get to run 5K. It shows improvement…I think.

I think I need to exercise. It’s been a long time since I did and my body will thank me for it. It makes me slim and stuff. I won’t even try to win tomorrow. I am just joining the marathon for fun. You know, do a bit of exercise after a lack of doing something physically that would need exertion and would cause exhaustion. I need that, you know. Stretch those muscles and all that. I might seem upbeat and excited for this marathon but I know, tomorrow, I will be complaining about it. I would regret ever joining because I feel like crap. My legs would be sore because they are not used to running or actually doing anything remotely physical in a long time. Ha! Most likely, I would blog about how I regret ever joining because I would be very tired and my muscles would be sore for days. But I don’t care. This is for my greater good. You have to freaking do it, Sam. You have to be healthy and stuff. Also, you get to do something than nothing. A part of me is saying that while another is mumbling, “What do you mean nothing? Sleeping is doing something”.

Whatever. I’m going to join even though my jersey is sleeveless (the horror! I hadn’t worn sleeveless in a very long time. I hate those things.) and it is a size bigger than what I had originally ordered (So yeah, I HAVE to wear the sleeveless jersey because that’s like the jersey for the people who would run 5K AND it is a size bigger. Awesome. Yeah. Very awesome.). I THOUGHT YOU ORDERED SMALL, PAPA. WHY DID YOU SUDDENLY CHANGE IT TO MEDIUM. I am so excited. I have to sleep early. My dad is telling me to go to sleep now. He says we have to wake up very early tomorrow. Huhu. I will miss my many hours of sleeping. I will miss you bed. That’s okay. I’m sure my first destination once we have finished running is to the bed…or the bathroom because I am sweaty.

Yay! I am going to run tomorrow! I congratulate myself for not being lazy, finally getting some exercise and actually do something good for myself. A dancing Taylor G.I.F is needed (I noticed that I only post dancing Taylor G.I.Fs if I am happy and also when I am not being lazy). Good night!

Milo Marathon

Nakakaawa yung mga bata kanina sa 3k sabi kasi wag tatakbo pero pagkastart nagsitakbuhan na. Sabay yung isang bata di pa siya nakakalayo sa start yung tipong bumubwelo pa lang siya tumakbo natumba na tapos siyempre natapak-tapakan. Tapos may 2 nakatapak sa kanya na nadapa din edi 3 na silang natumba 3 rin silang natapakan. Mga kawawa man, sabay yung mga magulang nila takbo rin para puntahan sila. Tapos nilakad lang naman talaga namin eh. Ang sakit kasi ng mga muscles namin. Tapos hindi ko alam kung makakalakad pako bukas. Hayyyyss.

  • Alam ba ninyo yung Milo Marathon? Every year akong sumasali dun noong college. 5K ang sinasalihan ko at binibilisan ko talaga para umabot sa finish line within one hour. Oo, may time limit na isang oras.
  • 40 minutes ang record ko noong college. Ewan ko ngayon. Busy na’ko sa work kaya di na’ko nakakasali.
  • Oo nga pala. Kagabi, nag-uusap kami ni hon tungkol sa resulta na Binibing Pilipinas. (I dunno. Hindi ko napanood at wala akong balak panoorin dahil ‘di naman ako mahilig sa mga beauty pageant.) Kwento nung friend niya, nakakatawa yung question and answer portion. Nag-research ako sa Google at eto ang nakita ko…
  • Q: You know, in this digital age, on Facebook, everything is made public. So for you, what should remain private and why?
  • A: For me, those things should remain private is your self, especially in terms of being open up in everything to them. Your personality, your personal intentions should be private. Thank you.
  • Isa ‘to sa mga nakikita kong negative na ugali ng Pinoy. Madalas, nahihiya tayong ipaulit or ipa-rephrase yung sinasabi ng kausap natin ‘pag hindi maintindihan. Masama ba? Ugali rin natin ang sumagot agad. ‘Di dapat ganun.
  • Noong nasa Macau ako, tumunog yung walk-through metal detector ng airport. Nilapitan ako ng airport police at kinausap… in Chinese. Akalain niyo! LOL. Wala akong naintindihan sa sinabi ni kuya, opkors.
  • Lumapit yung partner niya na nasa kabilang lane at ginamit yung hand-held metal detector. Tumunog ulit! So yeah, nagsabi-sabi na naman si kuya (sa Chinese) at kinabahan na ako. "No, no, no, no! English only." "Do you have a cellphone?" sabi nung partner niya.
  • Akala ko iko-confiscate nila ang cellphone ko (tapos ie-escort ako papunta sa isang opisina sa loob ng airport). Pero hindi naman. 
  • Pinapatay nila ang cellphone. Turns out masyadong sensitive ang mga metal detector. 
  • Anong masasabi ng mga taga-UK sa sagot ko na, “No, no, no, no! English only.” LOL. I could have been nicer, yeah.
  • Good morning.
