Why do I Run? I want to wear a size M shirt!!!

I was suppose to comment on Takbo.Ph thread with the same question… and since it will have a 3 part story, it will take a lot of space. So, I decided to put it in my blog instead.

So… Why do I run?

I was overweight for so many years and I need to find an outlet.

No, I was never obese before like my Takbo.Ph brother Dave Viray. But I want to shed pounds, have a leaner body, to feel great and to feel good in a size M shirt.

Next month (June) will be my 1st year anniversary in running.

I think I’m almost there in having a leaner body. People who knew me and saw me with bulges now tells me, “You lost weight. Are you on a diet?” or “your shirt looks nice on you”. I always smile back at them and say “takbo tayo?“.

And YES… I have shed pounds, I feel great and I feel good in a size M shirt.

    Hey Rod, goal ko rin yang magsuot ng medium shirt. Bumaba na ako from XL to L. Siguro mga apat pang half-marathon at isang full marathon, medium na rin ako 🙂

    Rod, regarding the Condura Run, we’ll see. When the official date is decided, I’ll have a better idea. Patrick is a good friend of mine as are the runner-bloggers in the Philippines. The race is definitely a well run event. Take care and have a good weekend!

    <>WAYNE<><>I hope the Condura Run will push through on Jan 17. It’s my special day. And what a way to celebrate it by running. =)
    <><>BRO J<><>My first run was that of Mizuno too < HREF="http://rod-runner-888.blogspot.com/2009/03/awaken.html" REL="nofollow">LINK<>. And I only knew 2 persons who ran that same race and both were my officemates.

    But now, I have more than a dozen of people I consider my running family and proud to have met who always inspire me to run even more.

    Hope to meet you too in future races! =)
