Run for Fun, Race for Place 2011

One of the interesting answer for the question: "why do you run?" is a half-meant joke "to meet my other half!", or simply put, to hunt for some prospect gals or guys. And it could be testified with the many love-stories made such as those sweet finish line proposals on the previous races. We could also see that some of the friendships and bonds are formed within the running community. Aside from the online social networks, we have also all become linked through running. Indeed, the populace of runners has roared interestingly for the past few years that my facebook wall can no longer accommodate updates and posts from my 'Amigos' and 'Kapamilya' list.

But as interesting as it is, we might also want to ask "Do you spend time to run with your child (or niece/nephew/grandson)?"

Research shows (and as we can also observe) that the running community has been pressed only towards the not-so-younger generations (like you and me). While the truly-younger generations of today (like my Son and your Grandson), have been left out at home either in front of their digital consoles, or in front of the neighboring kids', uhmm.... digital consoles!

"So what? They're just enjoying their childhood!" I agree, but with that scenario, they might not be able to enjoy their adulthood stage, or worst, their teenage life where the first sweetest and the first bitterest of life's experiences would bring them. During the blogger's briefing about this event, we were astonished to know that only a ratio of 1 out of 1000 subjected Students passed the cardiological exam performed by the School's Pedia-Cardiologist. Findings shows that most of the students are either hypertensive, obese, or are already suffering from some heart problems.

So to promote health awareness and physical activity to their students, as well to our lovely kids and teens, the SJCS alumni, together with Mr. Ian Alacar's team, organized a running event which will be held at the Mall of Asia (MOA) grounds (iMax Parking) on January 30, 2011. The race is open to the public, alumni, students, faculty, family and friends, in short, all of us are invited to join.
