Having a buddy is great, someone that will be there for you, someone that will support you all the way and will help you achieve your goals whether it be a lifetime goal or wellness goal.
My husband and I really love to eat and we barely exercise. As the years passed by, we both gained weight and he has been diagnosed with NAFLD (Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease) and borderline obese.
We know it is not late yet for us to start and live a healthy lifestyle, we decided to take a step to a healthy lifestyle, we wanted to start our journey to wellness by joining Robinson's Supermarket's Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run.
As we arrive at the venue, it was almost crowded with partners getting ready for the 5K and 10K race. Presented by Robinson's Supermarket, they aimed to be a part of the wellness of every Filipino family through the years.
While waiting for the race to start, the participants enjoyed the different booth that was set up by sponsors that allow the participants to try their products and bring home some goodies from Wyeth, Abbot, Nestle Philippines, Johnson, and Johnson, Unilab and other sponsors.
The buddy race started at 5:00 am for the 10K race and 5:30 am for the 5K race, my husband and I enjoyed the race as we jog, run and laugh at each other, an experience that is totally priceless.
We reached the finish line together and felt proud for ourselves and others who joined and never surrendered to reach the finish line. It was really worth every sweat.
Aside from offering a great way to bond with families, friends, and loved ones while celebrating and cultivating health and wellness, the Robinsons Supermarket Buddy Run rewarded the 5k race top finishers with 6 months worth of groceries and healthy freebies, while the 2nd and 3rd place finishers received Robinsons Supermarket Gift Certificates.
The 10K race top podium finishers received one year-worth of groceries while the 2nd place and 3rd place finishers took home Robinsons Supermarket gift certificates and healthy freebies to jump start and continue their wellness journey.
The fun run is in line with Robinsons Supermarket's wellness commitment to continuously encourage more people to choose and live healthier lifestyles.
