36th National Milo Marathon

It was almost 2 years ago when I ran my first half marathon. I joined 34th Milo Marathon due to my cost-benefit-analysis (refer to previous blog: https://jiemauricio.wordpress.com/2010/12/12/34th-national-milo-marathon-dec-12-2010. I was running away from pain and heart aches during that time and running has definitely helped me to heal. I got addicted to the endorphins that kicked in my system every time I do long run.

Everything was history after my first half marathon. Month-on-month, I was joining at least 1 fun run – https://jiemauricio.wordpress.com/2011/03/06/my-running-timeline/ .

I celebrate today as Milo Marathon paved the way for my long-run journey. It made me set goals that I never thought I could achieve, it made me do things I’ve never thought I’d do. Running continually boosts my confidence, helped me fight depression, consistently push me to my limits, and believe that “Kaya mo yan.” Every time I think about slowing done, I just can’t do it as the phrase that can be found in each of the runner’s singlet is “Kaya mo yan” – “You can do it.” How can you quit if all throughout the run you are seeing this phrase?

As much as possible, I will ensure to join this race year-on-year. Next year and moving forward, I will more likely be joining 42k.
