I am trying, desperately trying to lose 10 pounds and even though I’ve stepped up the workouts, nothing seems to be budging. It must be my diet, then.
Drop a jeans size? Really?
Kelloggs Special K cereal has been marketed for the past years as a healthy way to lose weight with proper exercise and balanced diet, and it has also featured U.S. Olympians every Olympic year.
After sponsoring different race events in the Philippines (don’t tell me you don’t notice what’s in the loot bag), Kelloggs has finally stepped out and created its own fun run. The Special K Run for a Healthy Filipina on July 22 at McKinley Hill aims to raise women’s awareness of living a healthy lifestyle and will partner with Senator Pia Cayetano’s Pinay In Action program to advocate women’s health.
There are still too few women running; you’ll find that in every race only 30% of the participants are women. To encourage more women to run (and hopefully adopt it as part of a healthy lifestyle), registration will have a “Bring a Gal Promo”; all women will have P50 off the registration fees at the Kelloggs Run. If a woman accompanies a man and they both register, they will both receive the P50 discount.
Registration fees are P400 for 3K/5K, P500 for 10K, and P650 for 16K. Don’t forget to subtract P50 if you’re a woman, or a man registering with a woman! Each race kit will contain a singlet, bib, and barcode. Finishers will receive a lootbag, and 16K finishers will receive finisher medals.
Registration is ongoing at Toby’s (Shangri-La, Glorietta 4, SM MOA) and RUNNR (Trinoma, BHS). There’s a registration promo ongoing (free cereal and cereal bowls!), so do try to register as early as possible.
I’m excited about running in McKinley Hill again. It’s been such a long time. Ladies (and gents), takbo na!
