Since my co-lakas.com.ph are both active in running, they encouraged me [more like pressured me] to also join a run. Me and my officemates decided to join the Mizuno Run in The Fort, unfortunately we ran out of slots even before the end of the registration period. Luckily, we saw an ad in the Mizuno store that theyâ€™ll be sponsoring another race in Tagaytay Highlands. I havenâ€™t been in Highlands before [and I guess I wonâ€™t be returning there either, needs to find a rich friend to go back there, kidding!] thatâ€™s why I asked my officemates if we could join that race instead. They saw how eager I am to go there [ambisyoso!] thatâ€™s why they granted my request [yey!].
The day of the race [04.25.10], we arrived at Tagaytay Highlands around 5:45am. Luckily, the event was held in Midlands, as we were scared that theyâ€™ll let us run in the steep uphill there. The breeze was cold, a very relaxing one compared to the very humid breeze here in Manila. The environment and the view there was also beautiful, as not many houses are established there yet. A commoner like me canâ€™t afford to buy a land there; itâ€™s a very elite place to live in.
