It was great to see kids having spirits up high at Alaska Ironkids Run Race held at SM Mall of Asia Complex last June 1 in celebration of World Milk Day in the Philippines. I can imagine how these proud parents taught them habits of discipline and motivation while enjoying their childhood. No one can tell, maybe one of these children could be Philippines’ next triathlon champ.
Konting chika naman. I get to chitchat with JD Hizon (6 years old) from Team Hizon, who place 2nd in Team Relay category. JD is the son of my good friend Marge and Jeff Hizon who are into extreme sports like duathlon and offroad cycling of Team EXO (Team Executive Offroad Cycling Association). According to the proud mother and father, it was his first run so JD prepared one month training for the run race and had his extreme practice two weeks before said event. JD already participated in mountain biking race and swimming. Astig talaga!
