This early morning, Robinsons Supermarket just made a milestone of holding the 10th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run!
It’s a mouthful, we know. so let’s just call it the Buddy Run 10 , moving forward. 🙂
Although this is already the 10th ‘run‘, Seats For Two only joined the fray starting at the 7th Buddy Run back a few years ago. Yes, you can consider us as late bloomers. We don’t even consider ourselves one either as we haven’t joined other running events aside from this one.
But yes, the drive to achieve better health and wellness is reason enough to encouarge us as a couple to join healthy running events such as this. Ok, we admit, the promise of a couple of free grocery packs at the end of the finish line is also helps a lot in the decision-making process. 🙂
Kidding aside, what we really love about this running event is the “Buddy” concept – the idea of running with your partner, cheering on each other, encouraging one another, specially when you are about to give up.
I think that’s what makes Seats For Two and the 5,000+ individuals this morning continue joining the Buddy Run year after year

“Through the years, the Fit & Fun Buddy Run has been a much-anticipated event for a lot of people. It’s our kick-off as we celebrate with the nation, Wellness and Nutrition month. It provides a fun gateway activity for fitness newbies who are just about to start their wellness journey and loyal runners,” said general manager of Robinsons Supermarket, Mr. Jody Gadia.
Moreover, Coach Jim Saret and Coach Toni Saret prepped-up the runners with a short work-out and invited them to register on-site for the Fit Filipino 1 Million Pounds National Weight Loss Challenge, the biggest on-ground and online wellness program in the country which aims to encourage everyone to pledge and lose weight.
