REACH Fun Run Experience



I saw this schedule of marathons in the Philippines and I saw the REACH fun run slated last July 11, 2009 at the Fort Bonifacio open field. I read through the website hyperlink and saw that this was for a cause. The full meaning of REACH is Run, Eat And help CHange the World. The fun run was just 5K. You need to run the first 2.5K and then you have to stop to consume 4 original glazed doughnuts. Then run or walk the remaining 2.5K.

I joined the fun run together with Patrick, Herbert and Joma. But unfortunately, they were not able to finish the run. They stopped midway where they need to eat the doughnuts. According to Joma and Herbert, they cannot consume the 4 doughnuts while Patrick is too tired to finish the race.

We were lucky enough to arrive early in the venue and be one of the first registant. Even though we am not part of the first 100 to sign-up online, we were able to get the free shirt since some of the original signees did not show up. It does pay to come in early.

My official time is 35:00 minutes (according to my beloved iPod). Not bad considering I spent around 3-5 minutes eating the doughnut in between the run.

Thanks to: Jiggs Nava for taking our photos during the run. You should be at the Kenny Running with us, OK?

Next Race: Family Fun Run in Roxas Blvd 8-2-09
