1K participants with McDonald, for the warm-up

As first timers, we just selected the 3K run, the most participants among the categories. We arrived at race venue minutes before it starts, almost late! I had a very good sleep, as always LOL!

Warming up with a dance instructor. We need that to avoid muscle cramps along the way.

Myzol warm-up dance
 At 6 in the morning a Gun shot was heard, signalling that the race has started. 
Took our selfies at the turning point. Have you noticed that myzol doesn't even sweat? well, she just walked it all along, and I have to keep on jogging, and waited for her to come over. Some of the participants there, are like myzol, who just walked and took some selfies on their smartphones. That's why it is called "fun run" they're having fun, and it's really fun, knowing that by doing this we are helping our brothers and sisters of the Bonok-Bonok Maradjaw Karadjaw Festival participants for their financial needs.
I think I should join again in the next fun run, aiming for the 21K.
