How DC Comics got me to run

DC Comics got me to run my first race. Not personal health and fitness, not Adrian, not my friends. It took DC Comics, a Wonder Woman race singlet, and a finisher’s medal with “Justice League” on it to get me to run.

Back story: DC Comics is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year and the company is pulling out all the stops for the celebration. In the Philippines, one of the events was the World of DC Comics All-Star Fun Run. Race distances were 3 kilometers, 5 kilometers, and 10 kilometers. Now, running is NOT my idea of fun but this run came with special incentives: an official DC Comics singlet, a character accessory, a slingbag, and a finisher’s medal embossed with the “Justice League” design.
