MBC Fun Run 2013

This is my second running event attended and signed up for 3k as obviously I am not really a runner yet enjoying the sweat and toxin coming out from my body every time I run.

If my first running event was a kind of mess because we just really got late and out of stock singlets, this time we are able to manage to come earlier and enjoyed the cool breeze of Manila at 5 AM while hearing the funny DJs of Love Radio. We checked-in our baggage and roam around to see those booths and take a picture to their photo booth with free Bambini powder or cologne of your choice. Next is the Tattoo Broadband which is endorsed by Bamboo. We mix Bamboo's song like we are a DJ through computer in exchange of having a free utensils set for packed lunch.
1 - Bambini
2 - Tattoo utensils set
3 - PETA brochures and stickers

3k runners were just really excited and assembled at 5:20 even without hearing any cue from the organizers so Shiela and I mingled with the fantastic and the largest crowd of runners. We had our warm-up and bang! Gun start at 6 AM.

I guess I've run a little faster than my previous fun run as I was able to manage my time to run in the weekdays. The safety reminder I learned from the MCs:

1. Do not take too much water during the marathon to avoid the feeling of being bloated thus affecting your performance

2. When you are really panting, exhale through your nose and not through your mouth to have deeper and much supply of oxygen in the body.

After getting all sweaty, we lined up for our loot bags and certificate of participation and saw our old friend, took their 5k run and take a picture because it's a small world after all!

By the way, what's inside our loot bags?
1 - Hapee toothpaste
2 - M Lhuillier fan
3 - STAR CITY FREE ADMISSION (always the fave of MBC runners)
4 - Certificate of Participation
5 - Bottled Water
6 - Wings Detergent Powder
7 - The Photo
Hoping to have my 5k run sooner!

  1. Wow this looks like a very fun run and it's nice to see a friend in an event too. I also had my first and last run last year with my co-employees at Molito in Alabang. I also aimed for 3k but I really got tired just a few minutes after the gun start Hahaha. So I was like, walk, run, walk run until I reached the finish line. It was so fun though. Love your loot bag, free star city ticket! I haven't been there since 2011 :D Wish I can also join this run :)

  4. Aside from the bloated feeling, I also avoid drinking water during marathons because I easily feel the urge to piss. And I didn't know the trick about exhaling through your nise. I always thought it was the other way around! :)

  9. Congrats. You should try the longer distance. MBC is really a good run but I joined the one in BGC last July 14.
