Vertical Run by Discovery Channel

I was excited when my friend asked me to join a fun-run sponsored by Discovery Channel. What's more the singlet is from Regatta! How chic is that?! So I hurriedly signed up together with my friend. After all who can resist a Buy One, Take One deal. For php 700, two people will be able to register for a fun run :) So me and my friend will just have to wait for February 12 to come....then...

During one of those lunch breaks one of my colleague in the office pointed out to me the difference of a Vertical Run versus the fun runs that I'm used to in joining (looking back last year I was able to participate in 4 fun run events). Turns out that Vertical Run will use a building and you will need to run/walk the stairs to the finish line! O-M-G!

As they say about committing a crime, Ignorance of the law excuses no one. Sigh! I know I should've made a research about Vertical runs and read the information on the website but since I'm viewing it on the office, I can't linger longer to check everything. What's more the singlet (Regatta shirt) will not be given to the participants unless they finished the race. Aigoo!

Oh well, it will be a good experience for me and my friend. Good thing that I'm regularly walking when coming to the office and going home. At least the muscles in my legs are awake. Gosh! I really need to start warming up. I was thinking of exercising regularly at least 15 mins during weekdays and 30 mins on weekends but I'm getting lazy. Ugh!

I just hope that I will be able to endure the 5k race. Have I known that I will be running in the stairs, we could've sign for 3k instead. And to think this will be my first fun run for this year. Ha! What kind of "fun" I will be getting on that day? One more week to go and let's see how far my stamina can take me....
