Next runner for to get to know for the upcoming Pamutan Marathon 2017: Grace Ruperto. For those who love joining fun runs and other races, she’s a very familiar face. She can be best described with the following quote or poem:
I’m a Runner!
I run in the cold… I run in the heat
I run on the trails… I run on the street
Good days and bad days… I run through pain
Snow… Sleet… I even run in the train
Whether by myself of against the field
There is no option to stop or yield
You’ll understand if you are a runner too
It’s just something we runner must do
So if you aren’t a runner please understand
If you ask a runner they’ll just say
“That’s WHO I AM”
– RUNNING COMMUNITY
