Last night, I was still undecided if I will run for a smile. This was due to the fact that I am nursing a painful left knee after playing bowling for our parish team in the First Vicariate Sportsfest. I was also hesitant because my husband and my two children would not be able to run with me. Thank God that my other son was eager to run. His confirmation allowed the rush of excitement to flow in my body which caused me to forget the pain. The resolve to run was affirmed.
This morning, we joined the race but instead of running 16K as I was registered, I opted to run 10K using the race bib of my youngest son. It was a fun and easy run as I tried to protect my knee. I enjoyed the run, it was simple with ample drink stations. The marshals were helpful and the route was challenging. I finished the race with God’s help. I received my finisher’s Tshirt immediately after crossing the finish line.
After the race, I went to ROX to meet and have photo shoot with Happy Feet peeps. The encounter was brief but very pleasant time to bond with other members of the club. Thanks Z and Mon for organizing and inviting as all.
