365 Days of Running (OROFOLS)

Distance: 15k
Target Time: none, I’m a bandit
Result Time: 2:18:58, run with Kathy

It was supposed to be a rest weekend(July17-18) as I’m still in a recovery stage coming from a flu. As the weekend was approaching, I realized that on the OROFOLS run, it’s exactly 365 days since I started running. So instead of resting, I’ve put my shoes on and joined the event. As I’m shy to run by myself as a Bandit (I don’t encourage this), I ran with Kathy as her pacer.

With BBR(Philip) and Capt. Mark

Packed with lots of Lasallians, it was a very smooth run. Overall the event was great!

After the run, I looked back at the things I accomplished for the past 365 days in running. Here they are:

-3 5k w/ PR of 00:25:43
-14 10k w/ PR of 00:51:40
-4 15k w/ PR of 01:15:24
-3 16k w PR of 01:28:05
-10 21k w/ PR of 01:54:45
-1 32k, 1 Full Marathon and a 50k UltraMarathon.

My race bibs, 21k/32/42k Medals and a 50k Trophy

I remember when I was just starting to love running, it was my dream to finish a marathon or even an ultra marathon. And after a year, I never thought I could have accomplished such. I just want to thank the Almighty for giving me the strength, for helping me finish every race I joined and especially for telling me that I can do it at times when I wanted to give up.

Happy Runniversary to my bestbud Philip!
