My 3rd Marathon Story

 A warm hello to everyone! I feel crappy, maybe due to the weather and i have to admit that i am unproductive, lethargic and lazy today. What i do is just lay down on the couch and enjoying my caramel latte from The Coffee Bean. What a life! 

Luckily i have got a very understanding cat. She accompany me throughout the day. Thank you dear Sunny.

Owh ya, 3 weeks ago i have added a 3rd marathon medal to my collection. I was actually enjoyed this time marathon compare to last year. Syukur to Allah me and my friends were able to finish the 10KM (6.2miles) Borneo International Marathon. Everyone has their own goals for doing a marathon. I'd like to say that my only goal is to run less than 2 hours. And hoorayyy i did it. Will I do it again next year? Maybe.

 If you like the idea of racing but feel like 6.2 miles is too far to race, i think you could start with 5KM (3.1 miles) race. And trust me, you will enjoyed the race just like we did. Don't worry, you will never be running alone. You can recruits your friends to join you on the day. In the first 5 miles, just look around at the surroundings and the runners along the way. You need to feel really relaxed.

 If you are interested to participating in a race, keep in mind that following a training schedule will always keep you on track. You need to keep fit before the race. 
People said jogging every 20 min a day is much better. Even tough i only run twice a week. But sometimes i play badminton up to 4 times a week with my friends. I feel healthier and more energetic. 2 days before the race, i just enjoy a short walk with them. For those who hate running, i guess it is the time to challenge yourself. You can start with 5KM first then see how it goes. I know you can! Running is about confidence. And the best way to get self confidence is to do what you are afraid to do.
