my running blog

At last, I managed to make my own blog. Inspired by the runners who post blogs which motivated me a lot, it’s now my turn to pay it forward. I know I suck in writing but I will give this a shot! Now let the race begin! Oh! I mean the writing begin...

Running for me, used to be just a way to shed off some fat from my fat ass. I started running way back September 2007, which was the time when running was just there to complement my training in body-building. I didn't run more than 5km that time. 30 minutes of running made me feel that my muscles were broken down and turned into energy. I sustained that lifestyle together with a high protein and moderate carb meal for almost three years. Then just last year (2010), I saw a lot of people running, and I said to myself, “I need to compete! I need to be faster! And I need to run more!” Then so I turned from a gym rat to a runner. I joined fun runs and marathons where I found the feeling of euphoria in a different way. Others may find me insane to pay P300 to P600 for every run. But let me tell them, "My run is more than the money I paid. What does your P300 do?”

It’s now almost four years that I started wearing my running shoes. With more than hundreds of kilometers of running, I’m now excited to push it more to the edge. 

Anyway, I was supposed to go running with my fellow “Dailymiler” this morning. I was happy that I won over my bed, but the heavens were not on my side. However, if it was not for the rain, I wouldn’t be able to make my first running blog.

I would like to say thank you to my family who supports me in my insanity. A big thank you to my mom, who always tells me not to run when it’s dark and/or when the road gets busy, yet in the end, she still buys me a good pair of tights. Thanks to my sister, who provides me those high-end, techy gadgets for running. And to my girlfriend, who is always there for me, who understands my passion for running even though I run impulsively sometimes and turn out to be abusing my body.

Not bad for my first blog. And so to all the runners out there, keep running and I will see you at the finish line!
