Last Sunday, I ran my second 21km road race at the Milo Marathon 2016. Honestly, this was a downgrade since I ran the full marathon last year. I was not fully focused in training for the 42kms and I signed up for the event on the last day of registration. My only consolation was that I still run short distances twice or thrice a week. Nevertheless, I’m still happy with the result! My time for the 21kms was 2:37. The cutoff was at 2:30 but the organizers extended it to 2:40. Another thing I was grateful about this experience was that I managed to run all throughout the race (except for a few steps/jog when I approach the aid stations to grab a cup of water). I always believe that running is a mental sports and I’m happy that I overcame the temptation to walk during the last few kilometers from the finish line.
Congratulations to all the finishers! Milo Marathon never fails to amaze me since I get to see runners from all ages and all walks of life.
