AXN Big Challenge 2009

Dear Me,

Woohoooohooo! I was browsing the upcoming local
AXN Big Challenge 2009 and commented to hubby about it. He just told me that his officemates and him are joining the sports challenge. I thought he was just goofing me because he knew that he hadn't done anything to stay fit. But he just said that it was just for fun and that it was his workmates who enticed him to join them.



Well, I kinda envy him. Hahaha. I would like to join, too but I couldn't and wouldn't. Maybe next time.

Anyway, I'm happy for him and for the first step, I wish that they qualify.
