Robinsons Supermarket Fit and Fun 10K

This morning Joy and I joined the Robinsons Supermarket Fit and Fun 10K “buddy” run.  Runners were invited to run with their buddies and must start and finish together.  We named our team The Swing Out Sisters.  I know! It’s so 80’s right? lol
We arrived at BGC minutes before gun start.  On our way to the starting line, we saw this:
bags and bags of groceries!

We took time to have photos with these hardworking men from the supermarket.

Joy and her reflector Nike cap with the Robinsons men.
smile for the camera!

One more photo before gun start at 5:30am.

It was out first time to join a buddy run.  Joy, who runs faster than me almost always had to wait for me to catch up.  She also had to wait until I finished using the portalet.  haha!

From time to time we would choose a runner with a colorful cap who was way ahead of us.   Then we would try to outrun him.  And when we did, we raised our hands in silent victory 🙂  It was a nice experience.

catching up

It was an uphill climb from the 8th to the 9th kilometer.  I was in pain!  The scene from Rocky where Duke tells Rocky to give everything he’s got to defeat Drago kept on flashing before me: “No stoppin’ now, you start and you don’t stop.  All your might, all your power, all your love, everything you got!” So I said to myself, “All your might, all your power, all your love!” We sprinted to the finish line.

Ah yes, the finish line.  We were so happy to cross it and we finished strong.

After that we got our grocery bags, and boy, they were heavy!

What’s inside the bag?

Thank you. 🙂
