If there’s one race hubby and I never fail to join together, it would be the Robinsons Supermarket Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run. It’s the only race that’s consistently been staged for the past three years that allows us to partner together and run the race as one. It’s always been relatively small and very well-organized, just the kind of race hubby and I love to attend.
Hubby and I have yet to decide what mode we’ll be in this weekend: “easy” or “race” mode. While we want to enjoy every minute of the race, we also want to beat our time from last year (58.29 for 10k). By definition, here’s what “easy” and “race” will mean for us on Sunday’s Buddy Run:
“EASY RUNNING MODE”: holding hands, chatting, wiping each others’ sweat, smiling at each other longingly with occasional motivational words, such as “Your form is perfect honey and I love you for it!”
“RACE MODE”: No talking. No smiling. Stop only to hydrate. Hold hands only to drag the slower partner into a faster pace.
Hmmm…hubby and I will huddle over this tonight. How about you? What mode will you be in?

Okay, this is doubly late news. I’m talking about The Robinson’s Fit & Fun Buddy Run that was featured in Maurice Arcache’s Without Batting an Eyelash column last Wednesday, November 5. It’s doubly late because we all know that the Buddy Run was held last July 27.
Here’s the funny thing: the hubby and I were featured! Judging from our appearance below, this was definitely way too long ago—to be exact, a full 6 lbs. ago for me (as I had just returned from injury) and 7 lbs. for the hubby. We were not “fit”, but we were definitely having “fun.”
