When Pyxcel Stops Running

When did I start to stop?

That is a million dollar question.

I have been on lazy mode for the longest time - and what can you expect from being inactive for many many years?!

Sad to say, it has taken it's toll.  I feel like I am back to zero.  I am a newbie again.  After running 1 42K and quite a lot of 21Ks and 10Ks and 5Ks and a handful of 3Ks ---- I am back to a newbie.

It hurts.  But who can I blame?

In as much as I want to blame an injury or countless "weekend engagements other than running" - everything still points to me. This is a sad reality.

Run Academy

All I can say is a big THANK YOU to PinoyFitness fot the opportunity to join the Mizuno Run Academy.  Winning the PF Run Academy Raffle was the best birthda gift I received this year.

I could not resist the temptation of posting that pic with my 'classmate' from Run Academy MOA.  Today, afterall, culminates the 5-week program that aims to make us POSE runners and consequently, better runners.  With the help of Mizuno and all its sponsors - GNC, Gatorade, Filinvest, Suunto, JumpStart, we were able to pick up important techniques in running, as well as equip us with the basic tools for creating our own program that will build our core competency in running - endurance.  The graduation run in Alabang was fun!
I am definitely looking forward for the 2nd Semester of the program - that which introduces us to the world of trail running. WOW... exciting!

Step 1 Finally Done. Road to TBRDM.

2 days of wishing and hoping and dreaming to make it to the list of reserved TBRDM runner and finally the list is out.

Out of thousands who would have wanted to be in the coveted list, luckily my name is included and step 1 of the TBRDM dream is completed.  The next hurdle is the registration - where I need to shell out 3 grand and knowing that I am a salaried employee, it is a big sum and I have other obligations other than this.

Anyhow - tuloy ang pangarap na makatakbo ng isang full marathon.  Tuloy pa rin kahit na kelangan ng mga overtime sa office.  Ganito naman kasi ang lahat ng pangarap...pinaghihirapan.  In m case though, baka mas mahirap, pero ayos lang.

Salamat sa mga friends who already pledged to help me out in this dream, mga friends who volunteered to be cheerers and pacers.  Cool.

The TBRDM journey is on to step 2.  Eto na nga!!!

Ayan na nga ang aking pangalan sa listahan!!! Thank God!!!
