Goldilocks 45th Anniversary Fun Run – May 15, 2011

Done with the registration. Unfortunately I wasn't able to convince my friend to run the 10K mileage. All I have to do is practice, practice and practice. I will finish my first 21K mileage. I will.

"Running for Love"

Good day to everyone. Since I will be blogging more about my runs, it will be appropriate to give you the reason why I decided to run.

I really like sports. I played basketball, baseball, bowling, badminton and there's more that I would like to try. I had my eye on running during my grade-school. I was able to make it to track and field team but never try to run a race. And that was the last time I had running as a sports.

One day I saw my brother-in-law wearing one of his singlet. I think it was nice having one, lol. It also happens that some of the Grepalife employees are running too. The desire of running was rekindled. And so I decided to jog after office 3x a week for about 30 minutes.

After 2 weeks of jogging I decided to join running events. My first running event was the Run United 1 2011 last March 6, 2011. Thanks to Unilab and Runrio. It was 10k mileage and I finished with 1:11:09. I really had fun and I felt alive. This will just be the beginning of a very long journey of RUNNING.

Holy Week Itinerary: Home Sweet Home

After office I will play Lan Games with my officemates. The game is somewhat addicting(in my case). I expect lot of trash talks and many of them coming from me(lol). After the game maybe I will grab(literally) something to eat then go home to prepare my things. Yes, I won't go to work tomorrow. I will be spending the holy week in Pangasinan. I'll be bringing my daughter to my parents. I'm sure they're excited. But you know what I'm excited about. Me seeing them, of course. I also like to see how my nephew is doing. I'm sure he's grown and become more playful. I miss my friends. I've known them since I was a kid. I miss the beach. We also celebrate our Fiesta on Black Saturday and that means food, a lot of food. I'm sure diet is not on my priority list. I really like coming back to that place. It's really good to be at place where you're at peace. It is HOME.

Heart of Tarrasque

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Phil 4:13
    To be honest, I'm not a bible reader . Although I graduated from a catholic school, I only learned what I wanted to know. I got this passage from a former classmate and a friend. He told me that this is his guide and I made it mine too.
    I'm a regular employee from a respectable company with a not so bad salary. I have a 3-months old angel and wife who's currently not with us. She fly few months after giving birth.  My daughter is too young and longing for her mom. A voice soothing to her ears is what she needs. I miss my wife and I know she miss me too. I'm not a fan to this kind of setup. What I wanted is both of us can observe and witness our daughter as she grows. But I've got no choice. We have to work together for our child's future and ours too.
    If I don't want this setup, I should not let it happen. I should stop this from happening. But what can I do, what can a regular employee with not so bad income can do to make his family together. We plan to go where my wife is, which is promising. Greener Pasture, and the idea of living together to a different place is thrilling and exciting. But can that solve what I desire. I hope it can, some of it perhaps. But I need some other options. And what are those options. I don't have any idea. Maybe I have but I'm such a coward to try different things.
     Then I remember the passage, my guide. This give me hope and strength. I know I can make things change. I believe in myself. I can do it. "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
