    Noteworthy! Running plus tons of fun, I am sure that a lot of people will be joining the event. It would be even better if there will be free snacks and drinks.

    This sounds cool! The music beat can also be helpful in encouraging the runners. This is the first time I’ve heard of this and it’s nice to know that this is also happening in the Philippines.

    Yes! I want to party while running! Unfortunately, I’m still not in shape for it.

    I’m just waiting til the year ends, when my CS section gets fully healed and I can do some fitness regimen again. So far, I just walk and do weights but soon, I’d also like to start running especially now that through your blog, I am coming to know that there are various events/opportunities associated with it, and of course for my health. 🙂

    This fun run with music seems really enjoyable. Philam Life involved itself in an event that`ll really promote the lifestyle they want to encourage people to have, which is to live a fulfilling one.
