Get an Ultimate Fashion Workout at the Great Greenbelt Shopping Race

Good evening lovelies!

Yesterday, I was one of the invited bloggers to join and be one of the first shopaholics to try out the Great Greenbelt Shopping Race (Bloggers Edition) and it was one helluva race! So much fun! This event made me realize how much I miss running and joining fun runs. I was wearing my 3-inch high wedge heels aka my running shoes, the same shoes I used to climb and trek Melba's farm in Bacolod with my fellow Roadtrippers. There were 10 tasks that we need to complete and then we have to post all our "selfies" on Instagram. I was running with Hana and Blair and we did a a lot of sprints and laps around stores, weaving up and down aisles. Can you imagine how huge Greenbelt is? Indeed, Greenbelt is like the marathon mall of shopping. #somuchstuff #selfieoverload

Here are some of the photos I've posted on Instagram:

I was the first one to return to the finish line. Hooray! However, Wifi was a bit slow and unstable and one of the mechanics is to post our photos of all the tasks that we have accomplished on Instagram. To cut it short, Kaye and Chaser won! Good job, girls!

To sum it all, we really enjoyed the fun and exhilarating shopping experience. One of the best events I've been to because this shopping race was hella fun! :) I just wish all events are as exciting and interactive as this one. Seriously, I want more!

Shopping is my cardio, that is. Not retail therapy. The Great Greenbelt Shopping race is pretty much like running a 3k race exclusive for shopaholics. But just because shopping doesn't have the same effect as running a 5K doesn't mean you should slack off. In fact, the average shopping trip from Greenbelt 1 to Greenbelt 5 involves walking almost a few miles. Add that to the number of times you hit the mall in a week or month, and you've got yourself a serious workout. And if you get lucky, you might even win the grand prize! *wink*

As a reward, I ended up with quite the bag of loot for me and my daughter. I was pretty pleased with my little impromptu shopping trip after the race. I can't wait to join the Week 2 race. Yay! Bring it on!

That being said, are you ready for some retail cardio? for an amazing and fantabulous fashion workout?
