Fil-Mus Run for Peace, September 9

A 10-K fun run for peace along Roxas Blvd., Ermita, Manila, to welcome the holy month of Ramadan, when Islam believers abstain from food, drink, smoking, and sex from dawn to dusk.
Even before the race started, I already told Judah, a fellow runner, that I was not feeling well and even showed him my shaking hand. But this didn’t stop me from joining the run. I heard that Robin Padilla would be there. Cool! There were two laps required to complete the 10-K run which started from Rajah Sulayman monument along Roxas Boulevard to Kalaw then using the same route to Vito Cruz. On my first turn-around, I saw a group of runners slowly pacing with a guy in the center. It was a fair-complexioned movie actor, Robin Padilla. Of course, I wanted to stop but those happy feet of mine were already into the race and went on with the run. I never walk during races but I did this time for I was not really feeling well. Mon beat me by a few seconds.
