My First 15km Run

I've been into running for months already from 3km to 5km to 10 km. And been stucked to 10k for months already. Because I'm too hesistant to try the next level which is either 15km or 16km. My team already tried the 16km at the 23rd Yakult 10 Miler last April 1,2012. Seeing them crossed the Finish Line then, made me feel envy that I didnt tried to run in their category. Until friends told me to join the  Manila Bay Clean-up Run 2012, which offers the 15km  category and a finisher's medal for the 15km category. And since it was near to our place, the team finally registered under the 15km category.

My 1st 15km No. Bib. (I find this No. LUCKY, coz the 2 last digits were my birthdate)

Gunstart was around 5:25 am, and after 2 hours...I made it! Thanks God. I just finished my first 15km and received my 1st medal  together with my Team.

My 1st Medal

I might not be one those fastest runners, but I'm proud to be one of those who keep on pushing them selves to the limit. Lets keep on Pushing to the Limit!

Kudos to my team, to all the runners and to the organizer. Cheers!

Back to School

It's been more than a week since the School Year 2012-2013 started last June 13. And I am so LUCKY that I am one of those students. It took me months before I finally decided to enroll myself again. And during those deciding months, I am so thankful that I have my family and friends, who helped me decide. I was thinking then if I should continue my first course, which is BEEd-(Bachelor on Elementary Education), which will take me another two years to get my degree. Or to take another course.

After weighing things out, listening to others' opinions, taking entrance exam to one of the Universities here in Manila, and fishing out some IT schools. I finally decided to enroll myself to a two year course at STI, under the Information & Communications Technology Programs.

And on the first day of class, I am amazed that professors no longer used the "green board and chalk" neither the traditional "manila paper". They already upgraded that into whiteboard and projector, which I believe a nice idea.

It's been 8 years since I last attended my college, oopps that will give you an idea on how old I am now. But my age will not stop me to go back to school, learn more things, listen to Professors who were younger than me =).

Learning is Fun, so expect me to share you more of my new learning's and my fun in this blog. ciao!
