The Robinsons Supermarket presented and sponsored its 2nd Fit and Fun Wellness Buddy Run last Sunday (12 July 2009) at the Fort. Jun and I upgraded our run from 5K last year to 10K this year.
As we arrived in the venue, we noticed a lot of freebies given even before the start of the race. It was a welcome and pleasant treat to all runners. Our free pictures with four poses were also taken even before the race.
The race began with 5K runners and after a few minutes the 10K runners followed. The route was a bit different from the usual races in the Fort but the elements of challenges were present. Right at the start, I told Jun that if he needs to pull me so I can cope up with his pace, then he has the permission to do it. And in several occassions, we ran holding hands but it was not that comfortable so I have to let him go and we ran at each others pace with agreement that he will wait for me before the finish line. But, being a sweet husband, Jun patiently waited for me and did not get very far. We practically ran together and crossed the finish line together.
