While some would usually ask “What’s in it for me?”, some would do it for the sole reason they wanted to help.
It was almost a month after about 680 dreamers became official marathoners in the annual The Bull Runner Dream Marathon in Nuvali. And with all the dreamers, are chasers who were there until the end.
A Dream Chaser should have the following qualities:
- experienced runner, but not necessarily a marathoner
- Serious passion for running
- Positive, pleasant, cheerful attitude
- Willing to provide exceptional moral support throughout the entire race
- Believes in “paying it forward” to first time marathoners who need the same support as he/she received in the past

That night, 14-15 Dream Chasers each in 4 tents (60 wonderful souls) were cheering for the Dreamers. Mostly run with the participants and give them the positive attitude during the tiring leg of the race. Some brought sounds, candies, chocolates and even make up kits for the dreamers to have their picture perfect Finish Line moment.
While my timeline was flooded with moments of glory after a week, I would like to give a shout out to the wonderful Dream Chasers who went beyond what is asked. The TBR herself, with the TBR Dream Team were so proud to have a strong, patient and cheerful Dream Chasers. The TBR Dream Team also thanks the volunteers from The Bull Sessions.
Some would rather be in the sidelines; as long as they see a smile, a thank you or anything; they know they have done their job.
To my fellow Dream Chasers and Bull Session volunteers, cheers to all of us!
Thanks to Photo-Ops for the wonderful video of the send-off, they got my most attractive angle: my back (see at 1:02, haha!).Chasing the Dreamer While some would usually ask “What’s in it for me?”, some would do it for the sole reason they wanted to help.
