My first half-marathon at Run United 2 2014

I survived my first half-marathon at the recently concluded Run United 2 last Sunday. This year, I dared to be fitter and more active so I went back to the gym sometime last March. Prior to Run United 2, I joined the Yakult 10-miler last March and a 10km run in Ateneo for the Kythe Foundation last April. These two races plus circuit training at the gym made me confident to take the plunge and run my first half-marathon. I’m also excited to take my new running buddy on the road, my Mizuno Wave Rider 17, I love using it at the gym and I can hear my new shoes roaring for some pavemen action.

My 2nd 10-miler at the Yakult 25th Run

The 16 km at the Yakult 25th Run was my second 10 miler after the New Balance Power Run. Normally,  I would just register for a safer distance of 10 km or 5km but this year, I plan to push harder since I’m going to the gym after office hours. I also missed Run United 1 last week because we’re in Palawan, so I was excited to register for this race when I returned last Monday. But I learned that registration were already closed in Mizuno stores, but seems that I was meant to run for this race because Mizuno Philippines gave me a race kit!

It’s my first time to join a race that starts at the CCP Complex, Jeff, who was recovering from a trail run last Saturday, drove me to the venue. We went there early to look for a parking space and also to claim my race kit.
