6 Commandments of Running with a Buddy

Running with a buddy can be so much fun! Enjoy the experience to the fullest by keeping these basic rules in mind.

1. Thou shall not flake.
You don’t want to be known as the running partner with commitment issues. When you say you’re going to run this weekend, be there, or be square.

2. Thou shall not be late.
Being there is not enough; you should also make the effort to be on time. If your meet-up is at 5:30 AM, be there at least 15 minutes earlier. Your buddy might have an appointment after your run, it will be great if you both can finish your workout without having to rush.

3. Thou shall agree on the pace.
There will be days that your buddy wants to run at a chika/pasyal pace while you want to do sprints. If you can’t agree on what the pace will be, it sort of defeats the purpose of running with someone.

4. Thou shall take turns on choosing a running route.
You live in the South and Nuvali is your playground; your buddy lives in the North and likes to run in UP Diliman. Alternately choose locations so it’s fair for everyone!

5. Thou shall keep competition friendly.
A little competition is normal, but keep it light and healthy. For example, challenge your buddy to run an extra 5 kilometers non-stop, without walking – the one who starts to walk will have to treat breakfast. Motivate each other in fun way.

6. Thou shall not be a BI.
You wake up late and text your buddy, “Bukas na lang tayo mag run, brunch na lang tayo.” Patay tayo diyan! Be a positive influence in each other’s life and try to encourage one another to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.

  3. find a running buddy na almost the same or close lang ang pr nyo in a certain distance category. Kung 2 hrs normal pace mo in 21k, hanap ka ng di lalayo ang pr with yours kase kakainip kung mabagal ang ka-buddy. Ok lang din naman kung medyo mas mabilis so that ma-encourage ka mag-improve sa yong pr. hehe, pero kung kras mo ang maging ka-buddy at meron kilig eh mas ok nga kung mabagal sya sa yo para mas matagal kayo on the road ;-)… yayain mo na rin maglakad para you can spend more time making kwento… ay, sarap ng feeling ;-) di alintana ang oras kahit sumobra sa cut-off lols!

  4. ok lang din naman ang ma-late konti. pero yung matagal mo nang sinabihan na buddy kayo, pumayag naman, niregister at binilhan mo ng racekit, sinundo mo pa sa meeting place before gunstart then 30 mins before gunstart wala paren, unanswered ang calls & text mo… hintay ka paren 10 mins then bigla tumawag & told you… “naku, sorry kakagising ko lang di ako makatakbo”. Eh di nganga :-( …
