It was a memorable day for me because I did something worthwhile and at the same time a first since it was my very first time to run and a 5KM at that. Glad that I was able to finish it in 1 hour and 12 minutes. Will do it again soon because I really enjoyed it. 

Aside from gaining awareness with how to take care of my health by doing a physical activity, I got these amazing freebies from Robinsons Supermarket! Thank you!
