Hi, it’s been awhile since I last blogged seriously about anything but this time I’m proud to say that I now have a new passion, running.
Actually this is the second time I participate in a running event, my first was the 37th Milo National Marathon, 5K wave, held at SM Mall of Asia Bay area last year. That first race motivated me to continue running after I get the Sub-1 for 5 kilometer cut-off time with 58 minutes as my first personal record.
So this 2nd run which was held last Sunday(January 19, 2014) at Aseana City here in Manila (Near SM Mall of Asia/Arena) I made sure that I prepared much so not to force my self into another injury almost like my first run where I encounter some sort of soreness in my left ankle 2 days before the actual event. I practice-run in 5K under 1 hour for 3 weeks around my neighborhood, SM MoA Parking area and Marikina Sports Complex. I also tried to control my weight and lower my nicotine consumption (which now is some part I now enjoy).
With my 2nd event run, my objective was simple, break my 1st personal record convincingly and have my 1st medal and finisher shirt as the Milo event only gave me a certification of finishing the course..
Well just look at the pictures.. ^_^
As what I said to another blog, the race was fine, the distribution of finishers kit and medal was chaotic but the freebies are great!
And there is a possibility of me going to this 7-Eleven event again next time… ^_^
