Why It's Better To Run With A Buddy | Robinsons Supermarket's 10th Fit and Fun

Running was really not my thing. I'd rather catch up on my reading or watch my favorite Kdramas on a rainy weekend morning. But after becoming a parent, my outlook did a 360 degree turn. Goal now is to be fit and healthy, with a bit of running on the side. I didn't say I would give up on Kdramas though.
Since my dad had a stroke before the age of 50, I've decided to improve my health status and not follow on his footsteps. But I've felt my own body weight's increasing recently because of my diet, I thought there's something that really needs to be done.

The recent Robinsons Supermarket's 10th Fit and Fun Wellness Buddy Run held at the Parade Grounds of Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City was actually my second fun run event with the hubby. We intended to do the 5km run but circumstances have failed us to reach our destination in time. I was so looking forward to this event as running helps me deal with anxiety. There's a desire to become a healthful role model for my kids that motivates me every day.
I also plan to let my daughter join me the next run as she has struggled with asthma for the longest time while growing up. I'm hoping this will help improve her breathing and bodily function.

I'm actually happy to see a lot of people supporting Robinsons Supermarket’s wellness campaign, choosing to live a healthier lifestyle. Plus, it gave everyone the opportunity to partner with friends and family, and run together towards the finish line.
It's actually way better and fun to run with a friend/partner/wife/husband/son/daughter/enemy as you'll create an emotional and hysterical connection instead of being so caught up with the run.
For me, no dull moments with the hubby especially when we're having an ANNOYING back and forth while running that has the ANNOYANCE level rising all the time. Still fun though, honestly.
Also, running with a buddy means extra rewards. Look at the Robinsons Supermarket freebies we took home after the event. Everyone was indeed a winner!
“Through the years, the Fit and Fun Buddy Run has been a much-anticipated event for a lot of people.  It’s our kick-off as we celebrate with the nation, Wellness and Nutrition month. It provides a fun gateway activity for fitness newbies who are just about to start their wellness journey and loyal runners,” said general manager of Robinsons Supermarket, Mr. Jody Gadia.
Hosted by volleyball superstar and TV personality, Gretchen Ho, the event also featured exciting booths with lots of freebies from Nestle Philippines, Johnson and Johnson, Fonterra, Unilab and Wyeth Nutrition, Unilever, International Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (IPI), Procter & Gamble, Abbott Nutrition, Getz Bros, Ecossential, Del Monte, Foodsphere Inc., and Philusa.
Coaches Jim and Toni Saret prepped-up the runners with a short work-out and invited them to register on-site for the Fit Filipino 1 Million Pounds National Weight Loss Challenge, the biggest on-ground and online wellness program in the country which aims to encourage everyone to pledge and lose weight.

The Fun Run is just one of the programs this July. Robinsons Supermarket is also giving away Healthy You snack platters for a minimum purchase of Php 3,000 inclusive of Php 500 worth of participating items of the Wellness Festival.  
Robinsons Supermarket's commitment to wellness campaign extends to providing Filipinos with delicious and healthy food options and alternatives.
