My favorite Run Picture

We usually have our own favorite Run picture: be it you holding a medal after winning one of the top three places, or it could be a photo of you finishing your first marathon after all the hard work you put into it. It might even be a shot with a celebrity at a race or a shot of you and your significant other as you finish your first race together.

For me, it is simply this one:



There were no marshals here, no race bibs, no water stations, no finish line and no rubber shoes! The distance was just about 200 meters. The place: Club Paradise Resort in Coron, Palawan (Philippines).
.
And our reason for running?
.
We were running away from a huge storm just a few miles back. It was the first time I saw birds flying sideways (wind was too powerful for their little wings). We can hear the storm coming and it was coming loudly! But instead of being scared, we were laughing and having a good time.
.
Two minutes later the storm hit us. Luckily, we were in the comforts of our cottage when it arrived.

Photo credit to friend Kervin who saw us running from afar and decided to take out his camera! Big thanks to you!
