Birthday Run Dilemna

July 26, Sunday

The idea of doing a birthday run really excited me.  This is the only gift I wanted for my birthday and I wanted my WHOLE family, meaning even my  mom & dad, my only brother  and his family and my only sister to join me.  I relish the idea of spending my birthday in a race running with my loved ones.

With 2 simultaneous runs scheduled on my birthday, the question is which one?

1.   Family-Oriented:                 No                                           Yes

2.  Nice Race View:                   just fine                                   Yes

3.  Location Near:                     Yes                                          No

4.  Friendly Time-Slot:              Not for kids                              Yes

5.  Ease of Registration:           Yes                                           No

The next qualifiers cancels each other out as the answer is the same.

6.  Reasonable Rates:              Yes                                           Yes

7.  Race Organizer:                   Not too sure                           Not too sure either

With one in the morning and one in the afternoon, why not run in both?!?

Addict!!! hahaha


July 30, Friday

I had to indicate the dates as this has significance.  The post above was drafted last Sunday when everything was okay and everyone was well.

My 2 younger kids were downed with flu soon after and are still recovering.  I couldn’t let them join me in my birthday run.  How I wanted a family run.  The kids especially these 2 younger ones were oh so excited, too. It would have been a different  and special way of spending my birthday.

Anyways, I’m sure there’d be other special ways to celebrate.  I can still do my birthday run albeit by myself or Jun could probably join and run at my pace this time.

Wait… I saw tarps lining Edsa announcing the Great Northern Sale. . .  It falls on my birthday!!!  How about some birthday shopping, hon? 😉

I’m sure we’ll think of OTHER special ways.   hehe

For starters, I’ll join you running at your pace.

Can’t actually match your shopping pace.  Baka lagnatin na naman ako! ha ha ha
