The cutest run ever has finally come to the Philippines! It was our first fun run with Ysha and it has literally been fun!
We were on the 3rd wave of runners with gunshot scheduled 6:15AM. October 21, 2017. There were so many runners that made SM By The Bay all Pink and full of Hello Kitty cuteness!
Yes, it was the Hello Kitty Run brought to the PH for the first time ever after visiting Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia.
It was a good decision to bring along her stroller because we, I mean daddy Jaze would really have had a hard time carrying her the entire 5k run/walk. Hehe.
The event was very well organized. There were banners, signs and usherettes to assist the runners. There was no runner who was not wearing a Hello Kitty Singlet. Even big men like ur daddy Jaze wore the prescribed shirt. 😀
I underestimated my own body, thinking that I’m still as fat as I was after giving birth so I ordered a Medium shirt that I end up adjusting it at the back. But, yahooo! Pumayat na talaga akooo! 😀
I am so happy that our little girl had seem to enjoy the morning- walking, riding her stroller or being carried by mom/dad.
It rained on our way but thank God the sun was fully up during the run!
We finished the walk (with jog) in less than 2 hours and got our finisher’s medals!
We dropped by the after-run program where there were booths and raffle prizes and head straight home for it has already become very hot and sunny!

I’d love to bring Ysha with us again on the next family fun runs that are kid-friendly just like this. Weekend family bonding is very important for parents like us who work during the weekdays. Yes, I do bring her with me in the office everyday but weekends are completely hers. Let’s spend time with our little ones whenever we get the chance to.
