back on my H@ppyFeet!

After an almost 1 week of of hiatus, I'm really glad that I was able to do a light run today!

6am, 0km marker in Luneta.

I came on time for this training day, well for someone itching to run even under the influence of the phenyl drug I was really eager to train. :)

Thanks to Smith and Zaldy, they made the run feel like a real short one. In short we chatted all the way to the finish. The sun was out and the heat was a real bummer! Good thing i brought in my new toy! I hope the bull runner reads my blog today! hehehehe Miss jaymie, i got my hydration pack!


Thanks to RC and his cousin who brought it all the way from Melrose Ave! The long wait finally paid off. RC dropped it off at my apartment last friday at about 15mins past midnight. I was still sick and high on those d@mn meds and boy did that blue bag made me jump for joy! hehehe Saturday passed and i was still feeling quezzy. I dozed off almost the whole day hoping to recuperate faster.

I woke up at 430am, started sending SMS to every h@ppyFeet on my list. I got only 2 confirmed runners going for the training run. Smith our resident white guy and Zaldy our youngest member.

The pace was constant, the chat was also constant. Smith and I were just hoping that the new guy (zaldy) wasn't cursing us for our slow, very slow pace. hehehehe After 2 hours of running.... and by smith's calculations, we did nearly 20km.

Hey Ben, okay okay I'm here and I'm jealous. :) Same question as e-rod, do you like it?

I haven't really tested it thoroughly that's why i cannot make a full review of the product yet. Pero anything that is free and that can carry some liquid and some gels. I say, yup! i Like it! and it works for me. Well, at least for my first long training run it did help.

The belt works fine. I was also hesitant at first thinking that it'll be bouncing around my waist during my run. But RC lent me his belt about a month ago thats when I was able to check that it doesn't bounce around. :)

Ben, what's the brand of your water carrier? I like how the belt looks. Not as wide as the nathan that I've been pining for. :)
