Ang sayang tumakbo (Running is F-U-N!)

I rarely get passionate about anything. I consider few things to be among my real loves (family, friends, dogs, desserts, books & recently board games) and none have ever involved any type of sport. The closest thing I had to love of sport was tossing a frisbee on the beach.

But then, my friends got me into running. I started out as their resident cheerer, then eventually I found myself running alongside them. And I don't know what about running gets me high, (according to my best friend, its the endorphins) but I just love it.

There's just something about running with my favorite playlist in my ears, by my solitary self, just letting random thoughts fly by me and not caring what I look like to other people. Its, I guess, a sense of oneness and peace that overcomes me when I run. I run for the heck of it at home, when I want to get rid of an impulse. I run to get away from the world and at the same time to indulge in it.

I'm running my first 10k race on 10.10.10, for a cause I know is worth fighting for. My rate right now is 10 mins per km and I know I have to up my performance to clock in a good time for the race. Me and my friends have named my NB running shoes and it's gonna be the first race of Lula. Looking forward to hitting the pavement to train!

I never thought this day would come, but running... I love you.
