Running in Tandem at the 10th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run

0 recently created a survey among its readers on what are the best duos of all time.

Surprisingly, the odd pair of TOm and Jerry was the top vote-getter with a total of 2,120 nods followed by Batman and Robin. Star War’s Han Solo and Chewbacca; Sesame Street’s Bert & Ernie; and Cartoon Network’s Scooby Doo & Shaggy occupied the 3rd to 5th spot respectively.

Completing the top 10 are Milk & Cookies; Maria and Luigi; Spongebob and Patrick; Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson; and Hamburgers & Fries.

Truly, everyone of us has that someone we can call a buddy who will be with us in times of troubles, non-stop talks on just about anything, and exciting trips, walks and runs.

Talking about runs, hundreds of running pairs took part in Robinsons Supermarket’s 10th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run at the Parade Grounds of Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City last July 2.

This is part of Robinsons Supermarket’s wellness campaign to continuously encourage more people to choose and live healthier lifestyles. The Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run gave everyone an opportunity to partner with friends and family, and run together towards the finish line.

“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.

Hosted by ABS-CBN stars and former love birds (who now call themselves “buddies”) Gretchen Ho and Robbie Domingo, the event also featured exciting booths with lots of freebies from Nestle Philippines, Johnson & Johnson, Fonterra, Unilab and Wyeth Nutrition, Unilever, International Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (IPI), Procter & Gamble, Abbott Nutrition, Getz Bros, Ecossential, Del Monte, Foodsphere Inc., and Philusa.

Coaches Jim and 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.
