I can now proudly say I have ran a quarter marathon and just recently, added another 2km to that distance. Never in my wildest dream have I ever thought that I will one day finish running (slow jog in my case) 10km and in the events that led up to it, had fun, made new friends, *cough* lost some weight *more cough* and am now totally hooked .. when you browse the marathon calendar more than checking other stuff on the net, if you are reading all the runner's blog and getting excited by it, or stalking a certain runner (in my case, its Haza - she inspires me and so so many others) its a sign ! Oh yes, I am totally hooked, all the way ..
My aim now is to run a half marathon, next year. My goals are a) i cross the finish line running/walking/crawling and not in an ambulance b) i finish it within the time limit and c) hope to improve my personal best time in my 5km and 10km while doing the half marathon. From now till then, I will be walking shuffling, jogging and hopefully run a bit , have fun and make more new friends .. and joining all the shorter distances marathons to prepare me for my goal next year :)
You want to join me ??????
