Project Ultra

August 8, 2011

And another one bites the dust….after a lot of on and off discussions and cajoling from my team mates, I decided to join my first ever UltraMarathon. I don’t know what I was honestly thinking when I said yes to them. My chosen event for my Ultra debut is the Philippine Association of Ultramarathoners 50k Tagaytay to Nasugbu run on September 17. Yep! You read it right! It’s a mere over a month from now.

Months without training, I find myself joining races again. Well to be honest, I only joined one so far, the recently concluded NBAFit-Air21 Run. It was a great experience to be running under the rain. Truth be told, I didn’t know if I would finish it. I only chose the 10k event and yet, it was a challenge. Eventually when my second wind kicked in, it became smooth sailing 🙂 It was a fun, fun event! Hydration was aplenty. Two thumbs up for Runrio!

Some of you might be thinking, hey 50k is just 8k more than a full marathon and you already ran a full mary. To tell you honestly, it’s not the distance that scares me. It’s the thought of running under the heat, intense heat of the sun. I feel like I could actually melt! But it’s all in the mind right? I should tell myself that whenever I’m undergoing heat training.

Intense heat please end!

 

So without further ado, I now would like to formally kick off Project Ultra! I plan to share with everyone my experiences on this road to craziness 🙂

Wish me luck!
