Incoming: Run for Hope 5

Posted by on 17. October 2014

“Run in the cool Baguio climate come November 30, 2014 with 3K, 5K, 10K and 21K distances to choose from.  You’ll get to feel the early morning breeze that gets cooler at this time of the year. You’ll get treated to a course that passes through Baguio’s rich pine tree reserve. It’s also gonna be for a cause as proceeds would be for the benefit of SLU Sunflower Centennial Halfway Home for Boys and Project Daily Bread.”

Run for Hope

If you ask me, why I run. It’s because it has made me a stronger person in all aspects.  It is also one of my advocacy to encourage to people to run and get to enjoy the benefits of a fitter lifestyle.  Sometimes people get intimidated by the distance, the pace or the act of physical exertion.  But whether you are fast or slow, you are still a runner.  It eventually grows on you as it becomes a habit so it’s important to enjoy the run first and set your goals later.   It’s really nice to see that the runs are now becoming part of people’s lifestyle all around the country.  It comes full circle for me to see that my school in college, Saint Louis University has also taken the initiative of holding Run for Hope each year.  It is also for a good cause as proceeds would go to SLU Sunflower Centennial Halfway Home for Boys and Project Daily Bread.  Each stride you make is meant to give a child a better life.

I always enjoy a good run every time I am in Baguio as the weather is really cool and you don’t have to wake up really early just to avoid running under extreme heat.  Since it’s the Christmas season, you get the bonus of running in a very chilly weather with the cold breeze brushing by your cheeks as you go for your distance.  It’s also always a scenic delight running in Baguio with the view of the Baguio’s pine trees and a peek at the nearby mountain ranges at some areas of the course.  The elevation would always be a challenge in the city since Baguio is situated 5,000 feet above sea level and has the inclines that will definitely be a challenge to any runner.

This would also be a good way to shed some pounds before the Christmas Calories comes knocking in.  Run!!!  It doesn’t matter if you go for a shorter 3K or 5K distance or the longer 10K and 21K distance or whether you go at the top of the pack or take the time of your life with good company while enjoying your distance. Just Run!!! Register Now!!!
