About Me

My photo
I am a Bicolano by birth and choice. By any standards, I am a slow runner but I like it that way. I look at running as a healthy and exciting way to make a difference. Together with my fellow runners from our family, school, office and the community, we use running to give back..

FEBRUARY 13: A Short Time With The Jealous Mistress

EmoticonA  Valentine’s  precept dictates that  one does not date a mistress on February 14.

This date is reserved for the one and only wife. All the other days of the month of heart are fair game for some dalliance. The closer to Valentine’s Day the date with the mistress, the hotter  one’s passion will be felt. Best it be done on February 13, the unofficial lustful twin sister of Valentine’s Day called “Mistress Day.” 

For us  Casanovas in our fair city of Paranaque, we received manna from  City Hall in  the form of a non-working holiday declared for February 13. The Bicolano Penguin was suddenly gifted with spare under-the-radar time that  could be indulged for a hot tryst, literally and figuratively. 

Thus in the morning hours of Thursday, I found myself lacing on the pillowy Hoka,  wearing my favorite Under Armour,  ingesting a couple of Hi5 energy gels,  and  putting on additional gear for protection and anonymity. Have  a date with my jealous mistress and I was gunning for a “short time”  in the streets of BF Homes and South Bay Gardens.

Running for 3 hours under the heat of the sun (February 13)
Lest we forget, the  jealous mistress is my running.  And the short time of  3 hours & 4 mins  yesterday   yielded a fat-burning mileage of 22 kilometers and a blissful cocktail of endorphins. Such is her  alluring qualities.Emoticon
