Do you join in Fun-Runs?

Lately, I do. For what reasons, I really don't know yet. But I know I help myself in the process by exercising. I help in other institutions by raising funds for whatever purpose they need it for, like the environment, helping the Red Cross, and other local projects. I learn also values in running. Like I learn to be more patient. Well, a 16-kilometer run really needs patience and stuff. That's a lot of road-distance. The farthest I have ever run is a half-marathon run, that is a 21-kilometer run. At the end of each race I get the feeling of personal achievement. Of finishing that race. Finisher's medal and other freebies are secondary or tertiary only. So, do you run? Tell me about it.

For the longest time I thought that running was not going to be something that I would ever be able to do because of an accident I was involved in when I was a child. Well, I've recently decided that I do want to start running and I plan to do the Couch to 5K training program so that I will be able to learn to start running some distance. Now that the weather is starting to cool down, I am going to get started with my training.

A 15-to-30 jog every morning is enough. No need for programs. But if that suits you then why not. The thing is, run because you are comfortable running not because someone says you need to run like this or like that.

Oh well I love fun-run but unfortunately I can't do that for now 'cause if I have to my hubby would go with me and so with my 2-yr-old kiddo. Too much hassle. ;) I'm looking forward for their freebies. A sort of collection.

I used to, every morning but have stopped for about a month I think. I have just been lazy getting up and once it's late morning, I don't want to go at all. Sigh, I have to start running again coz i know i used to feel good after the run. Will have to wake my lazy butt up ha!

I suggest you continue running. It is the ultimate exercise, I think.

Well I have a colleague who has been persistent in inviting me every time but I also say NO. I am not a sprots buff (I was when I was younger, i joined volleyball and softball) - but now, I am not so into running. It seems to me that running is boring. I know, its just me. I also don't like the early waking up thing - these fun runs are usually early mornings - and since I am a very later sleeper, these could be a hindrance. I just havt to literally drag myself out of the bed - out of that wondrous, ever wished sleep, just to run. Now, tell me, where's the fun in that?
