Last year I fought my personal battle with cancer. I gave up my chances to bear another child and it did made me sad for a while. I kinda went out, showed my face to the world pretending to be strong, but deep inside I felt empty, weak and depressed. It got me into a slump, but slowly and surely I kicked my butt (in my head) and proclaimed “I am over you cancer!”
In my own quirky way being the goofball that I am I came up with my personal project of getting awareness out about surviving endometrial cancer. I know my idea isn’t original but I think its really cute to run in a tutu. I asked Sheen a good friend of mine that makes customized arts and crafts to make a tutu for me (YEAH!) and Shumi.
I just have to tell you, running in a tutu SPECIALLY in a long (21k) run is HAAAARRRDDDDDD!
Here are some photos of me running in a Peach–really cute Tutu. I get to spot myself easily in the galleries too!
Etude Princess Run (10K)
They started late and I felt miserably toasted on top of the Kalayaan Buendia Flyover but it was fun nonetheless.
World Vision Run (21K) a really blurry picture
I lost 3 toe nails in the process. Note to self, cut nails before running!
Takbo.ph Runfest (21K) Running with the boys
I will never look at the Market-Market C5 Flyover the same way again! I conquered you!!
Fun Run with the Stars (16k) -ANG INIT !!!
Roxas Blvd is unforgiving, with little shade you really need to work on your speed. Speed– next time I will be faster.
Run ni Pidol (21K)
This was a fun run, I loved the route. It started on time and best of all, the weather was cool.
Other Runs I have no pictures are National Geographic 21k and Milo Marathon Qualifiers 10K.
I just realized, I have ran 4 21ks in the the past 2 months and I think that’s awesome!
I wear a Peach Tutu when I run. I am not vain, I am a survivor and I want to share it to the world that no matter what happens, life goes on.
Make every second count! Cheers!
