April 18,2010- The first Bayan Fun Run
Our company had a first ever Fun Run, as the running community already boom now, Fun Run as our Employee and Family day. We usually have competitions in badminton, basketball, bowling and other famous sport, but now we have a fun run, of course I’m excited, hehe. As my colleague knew I’m running (nah, just started running)and Im Miss Congeniality (hahaha, makapal lang face ko) they got me as a Team Coordinator for our group. Its kinda pressure since as our EA told me that our group was always a champion in every event like badminton, bowling and others. Wow, I thought coordinating this one is easy but I’m wrong. Lots of convincing power, encouraging them and gives some idea that they will enjoy running, hehe. They usually told me, “ano ka ba, hindi ko kayang tumakbo”, “ay ayaw ko ng mag run, ang aga aga naman”,and other lots of reklamo, but they can play badminton and other sports *sigh*. Hmmmm, I need to force a total of 20 person to compete for 3K individual (5 person), 5K individual(5 person) and a 10 person (8male + 2female) for a Team competition.
Pressure, stressful and excited hehehe. It’s hard to complete the list because only few run, many are their first time to run, so instead on the competition they just register for a Fun Run/walkathon for 3K and 5K. After forcing and encouraging them to run, I complete the list, hehehe.
We had this in our mailbox, to excite the first time runner, hehehe. Of course, I'm always excited for this. :)
On the day come, all are excited at the starting line, I would tell them," If maiiwan kayo walang free breakfast" hehehe, of course it’s only a joke, as some of the runner are my Bosses. I run alongside with Cathy (a first time runner, and recruited to compete for our team, and she is a good badminton player) I just told them to have fun; anyways this is just a Fun Run talaga, so the run started. The runners from the other team run so fast, as in they run as an elite runner, whoahh ang bilis.
