then again men would do anything for breasts, more like run for it. and that's exactly what men, women and children of all age and shape did - unite for a cause, the october pink fun run for breast cancer awareness.
it was hard waking up at four am when i got to sleep at around 11pm the previous night. more so with the thought that i was going to hit the road for a fun run. sure, i've done longer runs but that's usually done around 7pm when it is generally cooler - never mind the smoke, cebu is still tolerable even late in the day.
in fairness, the run is probably one of the "safest" i've attended - with a couple hundred doctors running as part of the event, they can collectively accomplish short of nothing but a miracle if something did happen. good thing nothing bad happened. just a lot of happy runners.
though i have to say it was probably the longest 3 kilometers run that i did. all 38 minutes of it. i jogged in place, ran backwards, ran sideways, held someone's hand, did a brisk walk-jog combo, ran ahead, came back and finally ran the remaining half with another friend doing a quick pace.
i suspected that two out of the three lady friends that joined the run was more interested in our post run activity - big breakfast. lechon sisig anyone? if looks could kill we would have fallen a thousand times. everyone glared at us. well... listening to other people's conversation is rude, never mind that we talked about food and more food. so there.
