Gatorade Run Manila 2016: My #FitAtForty First Run


“You are never too old to set another goal, or to dream a new dream.” - CS Lewis

I have always wanted to participate in a running event but I doubt if I am fit enough to finish. I turned 40 last September 18 and I felt like it's about time to start writing off the things from my bucketlist. I've started my #FitAtForty challenge last May. I joined the Adidas FitSquad and I'm into healthy eating. I don't starve myself. I still indulge every now and then. 

I signed up for the 11K category of the Gatorade Run Manila 2016 happening on November 27, 2016 at the SM Mall of Area in Pasay City. For a first timer, 11K is really ambitious. I googled to have an idea how far is 11K and it's like walking from Masinag where I live to Our Lady of Peace Church in Antipolo. Hmm.. manageable. People do the Alay Lakad every Good Friday to the church and they pass by our community gate.
