My family and I for the past months were busy joining fun runs, from 5K to 50K (for my hubby). And as of today, we are registered again for 3 incoming runs already (Energizer, Caliraya 360 and RUPM) . It’s not that we love races but my husband and I want our kids to learn by our example ( we hope).
As a mom, even though I’m busy with my household chores and a full-time employee to boot, I make sure to find time to do some stretching and my favorite – play badminton (yes, aside from running). And I’m a geek too! I work in a software development company and I’m one of the boys! Would you believe I’m the only rose among the thorns in our company? 🙂
