a fellow runner from takbo.ph celebrates his 1 year runn-iversary today, Aug.17,2009. when i opened his blog, i saw that his first run was with Men's Health Miracle Run last year.
tapos napaisip ako.
teka, hindi ba ang unang beses kong tumakbo eh nung unang Miracle Run din?
kung tutuusin, nung umpisa pa lang akong tumakbo eh, feeling talaga ako, hindi ako nag practice, feeling ko ang lakas ko kasi nag babadminton ako, pero sa totoo lang eh mahirap pala yun! hindi naman ako gumamit ng hindi running shoes talaga. in fairness eh ginamit ko ay tunay na running shoes, tipong lumang luma na sha, na out of retirement na eh binuhay lang ulit. eto sha oh :)
naka lagay sa time ko sa 10k was, 1:19 daw, wahahaha pero sa totoo 5K lang un (talk about super bagal and super taba diba?)
hahaha hassle diba?
after nung miracle run eh di na muna ako tumakbo. so kumbaga sa relationship, eh cool off muna kami. and this cool off would last sobrang tagal, tipong the next race i was aiming was, the next miracle run (which was slated ng march 28, 2009 diba ang tagal!) feeling ko kasi sobrang ang hirap ng 10k, so dapat ganon katagal ang pagttrain ko dapat.
so far ok naman ang experience ko with running :)
after that i told myself, 2009 im going to change, im going to be more active, and incorporating running in my regular routine. medyo nag serious lang ako ng december when i gifted myself a new pair of serious running shoes.
after that, i tried looking for RUBUs (running buddies), which then led me to takbo.ph.
joining that forum led me to seriously train for races which started with the March 8 LSD.
more and more friends were gained during the Condura CLP and Condura Run mismo, and also the Miracle Run. sobrang addictive to the point that we had an SSD the day before the Miracle Run mismo.
isang patunay ng sobrang ka adikan eh itong feature sa akin sa taho.ph.
marami pang mga sumunod na karera, takbo, inom at kung anu-ano pang masasayang bagay at realizations while running, during, before and after races, pero bottomline, this addiction will not stop. may pauses at times, pero wala na atang titigil dito :)
dati ganito lang ka konti ang mga kasama kong tumakbo
take note, mga officemates lang yan (well, more on ex- officemates na, kasi wala na sila sa Summit, ako andito pa rin).
ngayon ganito na ka dami.
(pero konti pa yan sa totoong group pics. for more pics from the different races, click here. and here.and here.(these are JUST some of the pics taken during numerous running events and other running related events.)
