A Weekend Run

Hi Fellow Runner,

Tomorrow, when the morning breaks, I will be up and running my longest run of the year thus far. And how long is that? More than double of my comfortable easy morning run of seven kilometers.

Fifteen {long} kilometers to be exact.

I've been running a 3-km loop twice or thrice for my easy runs this year. Tomorrow, I plan to extend this loop to 7-km and run it twice. To do that, I will have to run further to a place I haven't ran before. Extending the loop. Hopefully, it will make my running more fun while being longer and more difficult at the same time. More fun and yet more difficult, e? Such foolishness!

I shall be updating you again with what happened, if I finished and how fast or better yet, how slow I did this. If successful, I would have equalled the longest run I finished last 2014 -- 15 kilometres.

And if so, I could proceed with my plan of running 22+ kilometers by end of next month. But that is yet another story. First things first and one step at a time, shall we?

Fifteen kilometers tomorrow morning, before the clock hits 6 AM.

Let us keep running.

Warmest Regards,
The Pandesal Runner
Jayson Deuna

Pro Earth Run 2015: Run the Race for Mother Earth

Pro-Earth Run Newsletter:
In its Global Climate Risk Index 2015, Germanwatch listed the Philippines as one of the countries most affected by extreme weather events in 2013.
It also reconfirmed that "less developed countries are generally more affected [by extreme weather] than industrialized countries, and forewarned that “if mitigation efforts are not immediately taken, the world will continue heading down the path towards dangerous climate change.”
Is it a downward spiral from here? Prayerfully, NO.
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” said Chinese Philosopher Lao-tzu. So is the race to protect, respect, and oversee care for Mother Earth.
To increase awareness on environmental responsibility and raise funds for Earth Day Network Philippines' continuing projects and programs, do join the PRO Earth Run on 25 April 2015, 4:30AM, Mall of Asia Grounds, Pasay City. To register, simply click the link below.

2015 MILO Calendar of Events

Happy 2015!

I am sharing with you an email from MILO regarding their schedule of running events for this year. I am thrilled that the Manila marathon leg will be held on July 26. This means a lot of training weeks and months are still left for us to prepare for it.

The National Finals will be held outside of Manila. I have ran much of my races in Metro Manila and all of my four marathons were ran here in the national capital. Fresh air? New place and route? New faces and crowd? (Hmmmm.. sounds great!)

Let's hear it from MILO:

Greetings on behalf of the MILO Marathon team!

Last December, the 38th National MILO Marathon concluded an exhilarating season of Champions. This year, MILO continues its legacy of providing quality races for runners, young and old, with 18 leg races across NCR, Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

To welcome an exciting season ahead, we would like to share with you the race schedules for the 39th National MILO Marathon for your easy reference. We will keep you posted on updates and developments in the next few months.

We look forward to seeing you this season! Have a great weekend ahead!
