The Philippine International Marathon (PIM) was the first race I joined when I knew nothing about running and racing yet. From treadmill, my PIM 5K was the very first long run I ever tried as I simply wanted to accompany my daughter in her pursuit for an outlet or sports to indulge.
A year after that run, I can no longer count how many races we have joined and participated. Every race has a different story and memory in my heart. I always get excited before every race, the passion never dwindle but keeps on burning.
Last Sunday, ABS-CBN sponsored the Philippine International Marathon with a goal of running for the Pasig River. I cannot contain my happiness as I looked back from where I started not to mention that running is now a family affair and a byword in our home.
