KangaROOS Color Manila Run 2013

Honestly, I don't like the outdoors or anything that will involve strenuous physical activity.

Fun runs have been all around year long for different causes. I entertained the idea of joining Adobo Magazine's Run After Dark last September because all of the bibs will have different adobo recipes (how cool is that!) and Giada de Laurentiis' Chicken Adobo recipe was included! But sadly, Giada's recipe was still not enough motivation. The last one I heard of was the Outbreak Manila in Enchanted Kingdom where they incorporated zombies, and you, sort of, run for your life. Craaaaaaziest idea ever! Of course, I had no plans of joining that. I'd reserve the running when that day really comes. Other than that, I have a very limited knowledge about... running.

My dear friend from work, Queen, told me about Color Manila Run and I was instantly interested in joining. Imagine looking like a colorful, beautiful, striking, happy mess at the end of the event. A FUN run, indeed! Luckily, my super friend, CJ (who runs RunAdoboKing), knew all about this and here I am blogging all about it! Yey!

This is going to be awesome!
