It was another early morning at the recent Robinsons Supermarket 10th Buddy Run at Camp Aguinaldo. Aside from the fact that it was an opportunity to get some exercise it was also a chance for the kids and I to spend some time together. I got the usual grumble because it was so early but we went home happy and closer.
