Marathon : Cebu City Marathon

IMG_6144

Apart from my interest in books and traveling, I am also a self-proclaimed health enthusiast. When I live away from home to work, I became very independent. Yeey! I’m freeee! I had to do my laundry, pay my bills, and cook my own food.But cooking was a challenge to me for 2 invalid reasons. First, because I don’t have time to cook and second, because I don’t know how to cook or let me rephrase it, ” I don’t like cooking”. If that makes me unqualified to be a wife? Okay, fine! =D

After months of settling with fast foods and canned goods, I realized my unhealthiness. So I changed a bit of my lifestyle. I finally cook and eat healthy. I also exercise at least 3x a week. And for the record, I had my first half marathon for this year.

As part of my 21k preparation, here are some of my fun run photos.

Last January, I joined the Cebu City Marathon organized by Runrio. This usually happens before Sinulog and it is considered as big event because thousands of runners are coming to join the race. Categories are 5k, 21k, and 42k. Cut off time for 21k is 4 hours and I reached the finish line after 2 hours and 48 minutes. A 2 hours run and a 48 minutes power walk.:)

If you’re going to ask whatΒ  I learned from joining a marathon?–It’s how to discipline myself. I was able to test my endurance and patience.

    Good job! Used to run before, but now, because of my heart condition (and age πŸ™ƒ) I’m limited to walking. Try reading Bald Runner’s blog. He can give you some tips on places to run. 😊 Good luck on your runs, friend!
