Bring it on!

oh yes! after 2 full marathons (ccm 2011 and leon kilat's retreat), i will now face another challenge in my running addiction. on sunday, may 1, 200+ runners will do one crazy thing... to run 64K (or so) from toledo city to the cebu capitol via the transcentral hiway in balamban town. i will be one of those 200+ runners.

ccm 2011 has taught me alot of things. to train hard. to listen to your body. and to be more humble. it was indeed a humbling experience. i was running with my vffs (yes! the whole 42k on barefoot vibrams!).... i realized that i wont be doing the same thing on sunday. although last year, i took the challenge to run from jy square to balamban on vibrams. some 46.15kms. that was my longest run so far.

the leon kilat's retreat was also a humbling experience. although it wasn't a race, some 59 brave souls run from the cebu capitol to carcar city in the south. the distance was about 39kms but i managed to run back and forth to support crew stations just to finish an entire 42kms full marathon. i was running with my new balance marshmallow shoes that time. and i was injury-free!

on sunday, i will dedicate that run for my mom, Rev. Rizalina Bertoldo Villagante, who passed away last march 11, 2008. inspite of her struggles and pain before, she has continued to she inspire a lot of people. she is my inspiration. i will also dedicate this run for my dad, the Rev. Jose Nava Villagante. he will turn 64 years old this july 11 and i will ran 1km per year of his life. 

i pray that i will finish the race. and i know i will finish strong. time may be an enemy. but the 12hours cut-off time will be my friend. heat and exhaustion will be my enemies too, but i will befriend them so as to motivate myself to push harder and further. and i know in every narrow road or any long and winding road, Jah will be there guide me. my mom will be my running angel. 

thanks in advance to my Ungo, TTB, 10C and Tuesday Group families. your support is much appreciate. as what we did last year... no one gets left behind. so thank you.

so.... BRING IT ON!!!
