Yes, a year ago signing up for a 10k wouldn’t even make me blink. I mean, that was even less than my usual short run, right? Heck, I used to run 20 miles for
These days? A 10k is a big deal. Specially since my current 10k PR was achieved last November, while running with the flu, and sadly I know there’s no way in hell I can get even close to that time nowadays, specially after achieving a personal worst at the one race I ran in Manila.
The kicker? The race is in 2.5 weeks, so not necessarily enough time to get back to a proper mileage either, but if I don’t just go for it, I’ll never go for it, you know?
It all started when I got a call asking if I can be the Embassy liaison for the local Avon race to fight breast cancer…
Of course, I promptly said yes.
Then, I spoke to Mai Mai (my new running buddy!) and she was in for the 10k as well.
So I signed up. Today I even walked to the Avon headquarters and came home with my race packet and posters to put at the Embassy.
I hope I can get a good crowd together, and even though most people are leaning towards the walk now, it’s all for a good cause, regardless how you get there.
Plus, the race shirt is pretty cute…
Wish me luck. Let’s hope I’m not the last one to cross the finish line…
