A Run for Cory

In memory of the late Tita Cory, we held a run at the academic oval of UP Diliman and made headway towards her home at Times Street to pay our respect and prayers. We were part of a group of runners who paid a tribute run for her. There are groups who ran at Alabang, Taguig, Makati, Mandaluyong and the Manila Roundabout. Together with forum members and other running friends we made it possible even the rain poured incessantly. This act is not enough in comparison of what she did to us, to our country and the world. Her greatness and legacy will live forever.

After the run, I went to Roxas Boulevard to be one among the thousands of people who gathered to witness her funeral procession. Waiting for so long was a no problem for these people from different sizes of life just to be part of this historical event. I'm proud, I was among who did.

I ran for Cory. I ran for history.


  1. Always a noble pursuit to be part of something as historic and significant. I remember going to Edsa Dos just so I could have something to share with my future kids :) You should indeed be proud idol!



  2. Proud, we all should be. The outpouring of love for her was a testament of her legacy. Thanks for dropping by. See you again.

  3. I like the running shots Vener. It's nice running with you guy in this pursuit...

  4. Thanks Argo, good to run with you too. See you at the races.
