Last Sunday, December 5, 2010, another concept of freedom has been achieved.
There have been a lot of people from takbo.ph who've had experience the support and care from our beloved Margababes/Margalicious. Marga has always been one of the first (if not the first) person to volunteer whenever support crews are needed, or whether there are banner-making sessions needed for first-timers (be it for a 21K, 42K, ultra-marathons, triathlons, duathlons, etc). Marga has always been there.
Last December 5, 2010, Marga was able to break free from her 'demons'. She surpassed them all.
Marga was able to break barriers, and stereotypes when she finished her first full marathon. Here's her own account of her first full marathon.
guess who's the first timer here.
Marga has always been an inspiration to all of us.
QC incorporated last Sunday's race as part of the city's 71st foundation/ anniversary, but at the end of the day, takbo.ph peeps celebrated and welcomed one of our own into the rosters of MARATHONERS.
MARGA UY BAULA, you are now a MARATHONER!
si piolo, nag hire pa ng bodyguards pag tumatakbo, sayo, sila pang nakikipag unahan para mag hagad sayo
oh ha, may sarilin aylab banner!
kung wala ka mang inabutang FINISH LINE, yung iba naman walang ganito
you are one heck of a big person inside and out, and you proved to us all how sheerwill, determination, love and support reciprocates a thousand fold :) no medal or banner can ever trump that feeling of being able to help the person who's selflessly gives herself whenever the opportunity rises :)
thanks marga, for letting us be your support this time around.
