She can lead you to live
She can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth
But she'll never believe you
And she'll take what you give her as long as it's free
She steals like a thief
But she's always a woman to me
To tell a woman everything she may not do is to tell her what she can do!
...and whenever someone asks, "How good does a female athlete have to be before we just call her an athlete?"
I run, run, and run...until I feel like (almost) dying and coming back to life!
Yesterday, me and some of my girlfriends participated in the "Pinay in Action" at the NBC Tent, The Fort. This is a running event specially made for women and women who love to run!
But this is not just about running. This event was made to honor the importance of women in our lives! A perfect way for everyone to celebrate the strength and spirit of womanhood.
What could be a better way of celebrating the International Women’s Month than having to see a huge group of strong, fine-looking, determined, and vibrant women gathered in one place to race and to have fun!
Ellaine and I joined the 10k run. This is Ellaine's first 10k run and my 6th event. Some of my friends from the office (Etch, Deb, Rueth, and Mace) and from school (Wennie and Haids) also did their 5k event. Some of them had their first taste of a real running event and they loved it and finished it. Two of my running mates, Alex and Eric were also present during the event to provide support.
Since I was running the race, Alex was good enough to take most of the photos. Meanwhile, Eric joined Ellaine in her 10k run as I was (so) determined to beat my previous running record, which I did. I ran the 10k for 1:00 beating my previous Rundezvous record at 1:03. Yey!

Women all powered up to start the race! The woman on the left with her arms open wide and in pink suit is society figure and newspaper columnist, Tessa Prieto-Valdes. I always see her in this category. Photo by Alex.
Probably a mom finishing the 1.6k race with her kiddies. Go, go, go!
Even those that cannot walk yet joined in the event. Go mommies!
To my fellow women bloggers...cheers!
HAPPY WOMEN's MONTH to us!!!
