The Family That Runs Together, Stays Together…

It’s our nth wedding anniversary last May 3, 2009. And what a good way to celebrate by asking my wife & kids to run the “Southern Race ATC Fun Run” with me. Which, by the way is also a good excuse so that my wife will let me run on that day. 🙂

It was my wife & kids first official race, and also our first as a family.

Although it was just a 3K race for me, seeing my kids being enthusiastic and talking about outrunning each other made it challenging.

Challenging, because I have to make the extra effort of not letting them out of my sight, my wife included. I just told them to stay close as possible.

We woke up at around 4:00am and by 4:45am we were on the road.

We arrived at ATC at least 20 mins before the start of the 10K race. I saw the guys from takbo.ph and exchange hi’s & hello’s.

There was more time for a little pep talk to my kids. Which I think they did not listen. Hehehehe…

l-r: nikki, justin, jade, johann, paolo

i would just like to remind you to…
please… do not run like crazies at the start…

please… (nagmakaawa bigla… wehehehe)

parang di ko gusto mga tingin nyo…

mudra… 4 yang anak mo.. nsan na yun 2?

After more than 1K, Paolo my eldest son was way ahead of us. I have to leave my wife & 3 kids for the meantime and run ahead to catch up with Paolo.

I caught up with Paolo around 2K and I told him to go ahead and run towards the finish line.

I walked back, waited for my wife & 3 kids. As soon as my youngest (Justin) saw me, he immediately asked me to carry him. And so, I ran with Justin on my shoulders almost all the way to the finish line.

10 meters or so before the finish line. I asked Justin to run along with me. He must have been really tired but still I saw that he is determined to finish the race on his own.

Reaching the finish line, I saw Paolo waiting who finished his 1st race way ahead of us.

My eldest, Nikki. Finishing her first race.

peace out!!!

bilis mommy… punta na tayo sa Mcdo…

Mommy & Johann… finishing their 1st race.

ang bilis ng panahon… ang laki na nila ngayon… wehehehehehe
