Mother's Day Run Special

May 12, 2013 was Mother's Day in the Philippines and this was one special day for a mother like me and to honor my mom, my being a mother and all the mothers out there, we chose to hold a run from Robinson's Mall to Provincial Capitol in Alabel covering 21km loop.

40 runners swarmed the streets of General  Santos City who ran different distances depending on the runner's choice.

It was an easy run and fun as the pacing was relaxed. I had the chance as well to run a longer distance beyond 16km. Plus, I was able to run on slippers for the first 10km and on bare feet for the remaining 10km. I was joined by other barefoot advocates too.

The run ended with a fellowship breakfast; we were joined by new runners and old friends we hadn't seen for awhile and that had made the more fun.

So, this may be late, but cheers to all moms all over the world.
