Francine’s First Run: Summer Color Fun Run 2016

By on April 29, 2016

I started joining fun runs at the ripe age of 29 and my first event was a mere 3k non-competitive run. And here is my daughter, all of 4 years and 8 months, already finished with her first fun run last Saturday–and a 5k run at that. And the icing on cake would have to be her being awarded as the event’s Youngest Runner! #proudMommy moment right there. 😀

I’d like to believe that by starting her young on sports, she’d grow up better, a more well-rounded person. After all, sports do not enhance only the physical, but the mental and emotional as well. And hopefully, instill in her some much-needed discipline as well.

Yesterday, my news feed was filled with flowers and chocolates as per usual during Valentines Day. He may not have given me roses (the chocolates did arrive earlier today though) but he gave me something infinitely more special: HIMSELF and HIS TIME. And not just on V-day, but almost every single day since he arrived here.

And of course, those precious coupla days we were in Puerto Galera. We’ve been together for more than a decade now, but that was the first time we ever went out of town together. It was by no means a perfect trip, but still we had fun, ate a lot, laughed even more, discovered more about each other, and grew even closer.

The whole time, he took good care of me. He made sure my needs (and wants) were always met, and then some. I’m no invalid but I did have my moments of weakness and stupidity, and he was always there, capable and willing to fix the situation and make things that much easier for me. He’s just THAT good of a guy and partner.

I could only hope that in my simple ways, I make him feel just as happy and loved as well.

I love him so much.
