Oblation Run?

UP Diliman's Oblation Statue

While working out at Fitness First Eastwood, Rodney and I saw an advertisement regarding this marathon hosted by UP Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants (UP JPIA) for the benefit of its Long Term Education Assistance Program (LEAP). As expected, Rodney was so eager to join. Not for the reason that he wanted to help the school organization, but to get a free souvenir sando! Haha! Anyway, we signed up and paid P150 each. The race was scheduled on a Sunday.

Sunday came. We arrived at UP Diliman Campus at around 4:30AM. The sky was still dark though. We got our numbers and deposited our bags. The race started at around 6:00AM. Since I’m not used to do marathon races, running, jogging, and walking the 6KM race was incredibly tiring, I swear.

At last, we got to the finish line. Whew! I don’t care anymore if what place I landed in the race. For sure, it was on hundreds already. Then we claimed our souvenir sandos! Finally! Haha!

After this “Oblation Run”-like marathon, we went straight to Fitness First Ortigas to take a shower. Lastly, we had our lunch at the Megamall Foodcourt.
