PACE UP 2013


I recently posted about my first registration in a fun run, see here.

BUT, when I chanced upon an upcoming race on my favorite place to run, I knew I wouldn’t want to miss it! I emailed instantly my husband if he wants to run with me, and the manipulator in me attached this photo…


AHA! I got him at the SINGLET! Bwahahahaha (*evil laugh) My husband is an alumna of the University of the the Philippines, specifically the School of Economics and he loves his alma mater so much. So when he saw the Singlet, he fell into my trap! Since I want to run with him, I told him to just run the 5k and I’m fine with it but my competitive husband told me that we can run the 10k (Uhm yes I can but not so sure of my love one!). He once accompanied me in my run and he did ran the entire 4.5km without stopping but his feet got injured the next day! Hehe! So I finally said YES but I told him to train a little bit coz I will not wait for him and be a clingy wife all throughout the race! (Okay yes, I probably would do that! #newlywedsoverhere)

Yesterday I was able to register for me and my husband! The Pace UP is a fundraising event organized by the Maroons Athletics Parents and Alumni Association. After an easy and breeze registration at Riovana Katipunan, I squealed a little bit when they offer discount for alumni’s, I immediately called up my husband and asked him his Student Number, the good folks at Riovana Katipunan trusted me (Naks! With my pa-cute face they didn’t asked for the Alumni Card) LOL So I got a Php 50 discount!
