Reviving the blog

Okay. I’ve decided to revive this blog. I haven’t seen this in a long time. Actually, I haven’t written anything in a very long time. Hopefully there’s enough muscle memory in my finger that will allow me to write something good. Or just anything at all!

By the way, I finished the marathon with a not so flattering time of 5:40. It was good enough for my first marathon. I even qualified to get  the finisher’s shirt since I finished within the curfew of 6 hours. It was an XXL shirt since they ran out of sizes. I was barely a medium that time. But I still wore it proudly. It was like wearing a short dress, but still, proudly. 

Fast forward to 2014. After gaining around 20 lbs, I’m training for another marathon set in May. And since I’m such a diligent runner, I haven’t prepared for it yet. Not even the slightest. In fact, the last time I hit the pavement was for a short 20-minute early January. Needless to say, I’m screwed.

To top it all off, I’ve registered  myself to “practice runs” culminating to the marathon. The first practice run is, drum roll…. den-de-de-deeeeeen!!! This coming Saturday.  And it’s a 21K run. Yep. Totally screwed. 

This is actually why I decided to re-open this blog. Hopefully, this will remind me that I need to practice. And hopefully I DO practice. So that’s that. To my blog, please be my shining light to get me through this 3-year long lazy spell. 🙂
