Mizuno Infinity Run 2009

Last Sunday, after a week of no-run,  I was too eager to join the Mizuno Infinity Run 2009 .  But, when we arrived at the Fort, 15K runners were gone.  I was told that the race already started more than 5 minutes ago.   We were late!

Despite that  situation, Jun and I tried to catch up. On our first kilometer, we maintained our pace together but when Jun increased his pace I slowed down as I have to make sure I will finish this one.  As I ran alone, I dedicated my run to my God.  I  offered him thanksgiving and praises while running.  I also took this opportunity to test my patience and perseverance.  I tried to prove my self-worth and character as a person and not only as a runner.  I really love long distance running as I can sort so many thoughts and plans in my mind considering that I have to assume greater responsibilities at work few days from now.   

My Mizuno Race may not give me a better time as I officially clocked 2:08:45 which is even longer than my Slimmer’s 16K but the contentment and revitalization in my body and spirit made the difference.  It was also a great time seeing and saying hellos to running friends like Rene, Jinoe, Bards, Rico, Mar and many more.
