I used to be a runner, but that was way back in high school. I got gold medals in 100 meter dash, 400 meter dash, and 400 hurdles. I was long legged and thin, and i ran fast. But after a couple of years in college, and of work i got a little fat, not on the arms but on the belly. I tried running on some fun runs lately with a couple of friends who encouraged me to join. (Rey Pajarito, Noel Santiago and Thompson Tan)

The Pocari Run, The Green Miles Run and the SlimmeRun

I've been missing a couple of races now and can't seem to get my ass up and it's really hard commuting going on races especially when the race is somewhere in BGC.

Which brings me to post, The Grand Fiesta Run 2010- Puts the FUN back in fun run
The run is the Grand Fiesta Run 2010 which is part of the Grand Fiesta Manila Celebration, check out this post link

So what’s fun and enjoyable about fun runs?

Feeling the adrenaline and endorphins coursing through your veins and running with your barkada, family and other fitness enthusiasts are two things that come to mind.

Resorts World Manila’s Grand Fiesta Run 2010 promises to put the fun back in fun run. 

One of the highlights of the event is a 1K rat race that encourages runners to come in their weirdest and wildest costumes; from jazzed up office gear (minus the heels and leather shoes, of course!) to fiesta-inspired outfits. I suggest you go all out and let your creativity loose to have more chances of winning exciting prizes! 

The race has awards for the Best Dressed, Most Unique, Biggest Group/Company, and Wildest Costume.
And to top it all, rat race participants will also be receiving 1,000 free gaming credits in Resorts World Manila!
For more intense runners, don’t worry as Grand Fiesta Run 2010 also features 3K, 5K, and 10K race categories in a new route in Newport City. Runners can select their finish chute and win
different prizes such as shop, movie, spa, hotel, and cruise gift certificates! Participants can also join the raffle draw and sprint their way to a 3-day/2-night trip for four to Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore, with free tickets to Universal Studios. The lucky jetsetters will be flying to their destination aboard Resorts World Manila’s private jet.
The registration started last October 27; be sure to catch it before November 22 at the following outlets: Chris Sports in MOA, Glorietta, and SM Mega Mall; R.O.X Bonifacio High Street, and in Resorts World Manila. The registration fee is PhP650 for all race categories. The gun start is at:  6:00am for 10K, 6:05am for 5K, 6:10am for 3K, and 7:15am for 1K. Bring your families and friends on November 28 for one truly unforgettable fun run!
