Banat-buto: Chedz Alvarez sweats it out for 5-km run
She wielded her finisher medal like a prized possession.
Negros Occidental Rep. Mercedes “Cheding” Alvarez could not believe that she made it through her first marathon. Dressed in simple running gear, the politiko breezed through a five-kilometer run, with his soldier-husband giving her that competitive boost.
Alvarez even dedicated her run to lend strength to those in trying times. Kaya niyo yan!
"I can do all this through Him who gives me strength." ☝🏻 Inde pwede na forever nlng ang "if you cant perform, japorms" motto, so … tada! I had to find the fighter in me earlier, and with my husband by my side, I survived my first official 5KM run! Thank you, Lord! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Dedicated to everyone, especially to those going thru difficult times these days. Remember, you are a fighter! Do not give up! You will stumble and fall but you will stand back up. It may take longer at times but we will stand back up and keep fighting 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
