I ran miles for smiles..and that's 3.106856 miles to be exact. I really enjoyed the Miles for Smiles Fun Run because it's for a good cause..it's a fun run to raise public awareness about Bingot or cleft and other craniofacial conditions. For me, it's perfectly fine to run even if it takes time, sweat, the occasional ugh! and ouch! to yield one beautiful smile. :)
The uphills were a killer but the weather was beautiful and the event was well organized. I also got a new PR but I'll keep it a secret. LOL I'm going to make a major major effort sooner or later to really work on my speed. I have no idea how to do this, but i think that's what I plan to do and I will do it, whatever it takes. I promised.. I had to check my mileage though. Hopefully soon, those miles will add a couple of cute little miley friends.
That said, I'd been planning to run a bit farther and faster but like the past few days, it never happened 'cause it rained today. :(
In a moment of sheer insanity, I scolded myself cause I wasn't able to run again for the nth time. But then again, eventhough I haven't been running much lately, I felt great.
After a heavy downpour a few hours ago, warmth returned as warm feelings of peace, love, and gratitude fill my heart while my lil brat and I walked outside. I breathed deeply, listened to the beautiful music of Coldplay on my iPod and watched my baby girl run up and down the sidewalk. That made me smile. My baby ran...just ran, and I smiled. I supposed that's exactly what I did last Sunday. I ran and somewhere out there, I made a little child smile. :)It felt perfect. It's a freaking miracle.
I love those precious moments as a mommy, and can I say a running rockstarmomma, when I don't want to be anywhere else and my smile seems to come from deep within.
For me, a smile means a lot.. a true feeling of peace and knowledge that whatever happens, everything is going to be just fine.
I am not a perfect mommy but I'm quite sure I'm not a bad mommy either. I know my baby loves me and she wants nothing more than the best that I can be. I have so much gratitude that God has entrusted me with such a special soul, and I love her dearly. Being a mommy who loves running is so exhausting but it's freaking awesome.
Right now, I feel like I'm in a good place in my life. My life is far from being perfect but I'm happy... I'm healthy and I am blessed.
P.S. It's still raining... and a mosquito bit me! Grrr.. Why can't mosquitoes just suck fat and not blood?? why? LOL Hoh well, I can almost smell the weekend.. have a great weekend everybody!

Good luck, everybody!
For the shopaholics, here's the Nokia C5 from Manila Shopaholic!
Here's Nokia C3 for bloggers on the go!
Here's Nokia 5230 for foodie like me! :D
The Nokia 3720 is the “tough” phone for people on the go! It has a Tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support. It has a 2 megapixel camera, autofocus and LED flash that will help you take pictures. For grooving and working out to music, it has an FM radio Stereo with RDS. To share and store workout music, it has Bluetooth (with A2DP) and microUSB port.
If you are love running dark and rough paths, the Nokia 3720 is for you. It is IP54 certified – dust and water jets resistant. It has a key so that you can use the camera light and convert it to a flashlight for trail running. Well, I also love listening to music while I'm on the go and I also love going to the beach. I must admit I've dropped my phone in the water once and what was the result? Well, you know it. My cell phone broke.. so with Nokia 3720, I don't have to worry if it gets wet or covered up with dust because it's IP54 certified, dust and water jets resistant. yay! I can also use it as a flashlight for a trail run or a hike at night and Like Nokia 3720, it fits me because it's tough and durable enough for people like me who has active lifestyle, loves sports and outdoor adventure of any kind!
As for me, this Nokia phone fits my lifestyle because apart from being a SAHM and a travel junkie with a healthy addiction to running, camping, shopping, changing my baby's nappies, food tripping, hiking and seeing the world, I am also a foodie, a mommy blogger, a fitness addict and a shopaholic.
For the Blogger — Manila Blogs is giving you the Nokia C3
It also fits me perfectly because I am a mommy blogger who just lurves multi-tasking like blogging and texting at the same time! and that's exactly what I'm doing now! hahaha
