(my first takbo.ph banner group pic c/o Nuttybunny4 / doc Marvz)
from this "small" group, a lot of things have changed. back then, we "dreaded" the "long distances" which at that time (for us) meant more than 10K. I remembered those days when we were all enjoying the fun runs (literally and figuratively). running back then was simple and enjoyable. you run. you have fun. you eat afterwards with your RuBus, spend the whole Sunday afternoon with the same people you were with that same morning, only this time, its either eating, or drinking, or just plain old hanging out with them.
from the group above, different groups emerged, focusing on different facets of an active lifestyle:
Ultramarathon: BORING (and later on, UNGAS)
Multisport & Ultramarathon: CB
Sweet Harmony Gardens (where, at the same time, the obstacle course for the upcoming Men's Health Urbanathlon are set up).
Here are some previews of the Obstacle course we had to conquer.
ang mahiwagang balance beam
kita nyo yung last hurdle? :) TAAS!!!!!
while the rest were still resting, a few of us went for a short 5K run. little did we know that the "short"5k run was 80% uphill! pero that uphill was one fun run! tagaktak pawis! sulit!
as soon as we went back to the place, we had another obstacle course we had to face.

we sure had lotsa fun and lotsa food today. other than the food, what i personally enjoyed most was the camaraderie and catching up we had with the oldies who were present at this morning's gathering.
always good times with takbo.ph peeps.
