One of the perks of being a Timex athlete, aside from getting really cool Timex gear, is meeting other Timex athletes! Me and my gal pals Tessa Leana Lara and Lea were bent on having a blast for this particular run, and we did…. and we even saw other Timex athletes on the road, like Team Timex, Coach Rio, Polo Tri, and, ahem.. Piolo Pascual. Not a bad deal eh?
To make the morning even more awesome, we watched the Manny Pacquiao-Miguel Cotto fight in the Timex tent with other runners. It was my first time to watch a boxing match with so many other people, I didn’t realize how much fun it was! Met new friends as well, like DJ Hilary of 88.3 and Leo, whom I always see running in Ultra but was never introduced to. Manny outdid himself and claimed his seventh world title, and I could feel the whole tent bursting with Pinoy Pride.
After this I crossed EDSA to meet up with my family at the Global Pinoy Bazaar at the Rockwell Tent. It was a great collection of Filipino Made products at bargain prices. Kudos to Yabang Pinoy for putting up a splendid display! Pinoy Pride, indeed was the order of the day. I love it!
