One tawsan! Con-GRAT-tulations!!!

I've finally reached my 2009 mileage goal of 1,000kms. It was done on the usual 5km route that I've plotted around the neighborhood ---the same practice route that I've used ever since I started running last March.

It was on a chilly Christmas morning that I decided to do a 5km run, several days after the 22.2km Celebrity Run. Actually, I did another 5km on 12/23 but that was only a walk throughout, averaging 11 mpk. So I decided that it won't count in my running mileage coz, well, I didn't run.

Anyway, the reason why I ran last Christmas morning was not only to counter the expected onslaught of Christmas feasts that will be served thru the rest of the day, but to meet my first goal of 1,000kms in this new passion of running that I've learned to love.

1,000 kilometers. Wow! If you talked to me this time last year I wouldn't even imagine of having done such an accomplishment. Kaya naman pala. :)

My goal for 2010? There are actually two:

1. To run 2,000kms
2. To run a full marathon (preferably below 5hrs, but finishing one is not bad at all)


Happy New Year!!!
