1st Run for the Year 2012: New Balance Challenge 2012
While everyone in Cebu was early awake in preparation for the 2012 Sinulog Festival, I in the other hand, in Davao I woke up early this morning to prepare for my first [definitely not my last] fun run of the year 2012 – The New Balance Challenge 2012 hosted by the Run Club Davao.
It has been most likely six months that I stopped joining fun run activities and finally, I’m back. This time, I’m limiting myself to two Sunday Fun Runs in a month and will still continue my TTh night runs at the park.
This first fun run for the year is something different. Hah! Got lots of freebies and I won a pair of New Balance socks. First time in the history but that was not for the raffle. That was for those who wore New Balance Shoes.
I promised myself this will not be my last fun run since I have realized that when I stopped running for six months, I had a hard time in running back and beating my previous times. In this run, I finished 5.5k for 44mins. and 16 secs. via Strider [using timing chip - http://strider[dot]ph]. Not bad though because as far as I can remember from my previous runs, I finished 5k for not more than 32mins.
Pit Senyor to the Cebuanos and more runs for me!
If you want to stay healthy, try running.
