I ran my first 5k in 40 mins (8 min/km). We had to wake up at 430 because the run started at 530 in the morning. It was so tiring that I slept the whole day after the run, woke up just to eat dinner, and slept again thereafter.
Since then, I am beginning to fall in love with running. Compared to windsurfing, we do not need to haul, rig and tune equipments, not to mention, rely on the weather forecast which is somewhat unreliable at best. Compared to basketball, we do not need 10 players and a basketball court. All I need is a pair of running shoes, none really if I am running barefoot.
The best thing? I get to share it with my fiancee. (ayeeee!) We actually celebrated our valentines day with a run, a 10k dubbed Run with a Smile. We finished the run in 1:14 (7:24 min/km).
