Sports | Our 32KM Afroman Distance on our 32 years on earth 😇

When my fiance, Julius Donaire, arrived here in the Philippines after his work abroad, one of the first things that we did as a couple was to run together. We started with a 3K run where we bought bagged awards (I was the 2nd place female finisher, and he was the 3rd place male finisher).

Alone, we can run fast, but when we're together, we can both run faster. When Sir Mike Zuniga asked as to run 32KM, we immediately accepted the challenge. My fiance told me that it would be a memorable 32KM run for us since we're both 32 years old now.

The run started at 2:00 am of June 3, 2018, and it was incessantly raining in our place. That's why we arrived very late at the starting line near Mall of Asia. But that didn't dampen our spirits. We told each other that we will finish what we started. And we did! ^_^ 

We even got the chance to take some selfies along the way!

Even if we weren't able to have some pictures when the race started, it's alright. I believe that an earlier gun start is better because that means finishing before being burnt by the scorching heat of the sun. We're also very grateful because there are lots of hydration stations with unlimited Gatorade and fresh bananas which energized us during the whole race! 

We would like to thank our race kit sponsor, #DrKongPh 😇, and special thanks to the loving power couple Sir Ralph Huertas and Ma'am Michelle Co-Huertas. 😍😍

Thanks also to Sir Mike Zuniga, owner of, for the opportunity. 😇
