The runner’s name is “Joy”. I first came to know her as one of my “friends” on Facebook without even seeing her personally. And suddenly last week, she sent me a message on my account telling me that she just completed her first 1,000-km total mileage since she started running. So, I told her that she is entitled to the “BR’s 1,000-Km Club” Finisher’s Shirt and asked her t-shirt size.
Last Sunday after the Nature’s Valley Run at The Fort, she approached the BR’s temporary booth (Parking Attendant’s Booth at the BHS) and she introduced herself to me. I knew that she just finished the Half-Marathon as she was proudly wearing her Finisher’s Medal.
As I presented to her the BR’s 1,000-Km Club Finisher’s T-Shirt, she handed me 1,000 pesos for her support to the Elite Team Bald Runner. She told me that she had allocated One Peso Per Kilometer for the 1,000 kilometers that she was able to run since the time she started counting on her mileage. And decided to give such earnings to support my elite team. I was surprised and touched by the gesture of this lady runner. I could only say “Thank your for your support” and asked her for a picture with me handing her the t-shirt.
I just learned that she finished her first marathon run with The Bull Runner’s Dream Marathon and after a week, she ran the Nature’s Valley Half-Marathon! A very strong lady runner! Congratulations!
To Joy, thank you very much for your support. May God bless you always.
