Vintage bike restoration

I found myself in need of a bike, but buying a new one is out of the question. So I buy a used one for a low price and will have it restored.

Biking gives you the opportunity to enjoy the city and have fun. And maybe getting a bike will be incentive to actually exercise. Haaaa

There's a bit of rust on just about every part, but not serious or deep. I think they can handle stripping and spraying the frame. 

Cant wait to see it done.. ☺️

I conquered Murok!

"If it doesn't challenged you, it doesn't changed you." 

Just last Sunday August 17, 2014 Murok Challenged 3.0 was held at Jardin Maria Clara, Pasonanca. This is the 3rd edition of the run organized by the Zamboanga Runners Club. 

Over 200 runners woke up early on a Sunday to support. The Murok Challenged 3.0 has 2 distances 13.5k and 9.5k. This is my first time to join a running event and I registered myself to a 9.5 category. I woke up around 4:00 am and arrived at Pasonanca Butterfly Garden at 5:20 am.

Before the run we were reminded to bring our own water bottles since the organizers of the race wont provide plastic cups in the hydration station and this is done as a way to help preserve the environment by discouraging the use of disposal plastic cups that are non-biodegradable and could be harmful to  Murok.

The event started with a cool warm-up. 

On that day, you’ll feel like a star as the crowds cheer you on every step of the way


When I arrived to the finish line they gave me the finisher’s certificate, first aid kit and a medal.  It was a wonderful heart pounding experience. It didn’t occur to me that I will be able to finish a 9.5k and finishing it was such an achievement.

This is my first running medal tadaaaa! There's no First Place or second or even third place engraved on it. Lol like everyone who finished the race got a medal. Bahahaha

After the race, we were given snacks; sandwiches, siopao, juice, water and taho. Nom nom

 We also had time to pose for some pictures and mingle with the other runners. 



 Participating and finishing this 9.5k run gave me a sense of fulfillment and enjoyment to fuel up my passion for running.
