Fun Run: Hero's Run

As part of its hospital week, the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC) hosted a run dubbed as "Hero's Run: Takbong Kalusugan, Kapatiran, at Kabayanihan" yesterday morning. Over 1,000 runners joined the event and it was heavily supported by the VSMMC employees. There were 3 distances to choose from: 3K, 5k, or 10k.

Since my father-in-law works at VSMMC, the whole family again joined the run. Auntie Rony, Shaun, and Lenmar were also there because Charles is also a nurse at Sotto. We woke up around 4 am and we arrived at Ayala Terraces at around 5 am. 

The event started with a cool warm-up led by Cacay of Fitness First Cebu. The 3k run followed the same route as last week's POGS run except that the turning point is located near DOST Banilad. We finished our  "run" in around 40 mins which was slower than last week since we spent more time talking pictures and talking with Lenmar.

When we arrived to the finish line, the snacks were lugaw and pan de sal. After all runners finished, the cool-down was led by Emily of Fitness First Cebu. The participants enjoyed dancing to the beat of some retro-hits and the recent J.Lo single. The awarding ceremonies were then held after the cool down.
