So now I got to start training, running and exercise to keep my fit. To me running a marathon or joining any run or walkaton it is not to compete with others. I run at my own pace, to you I may be slow like a tortoise but its ok as long as I have the stamina I will strive to finish it. Well, every time I will try to improve my speed and time according to my stamina. That need a lot of training and consistency, means keep running every week. The most important is to enjoy the journey and the fun of running together with many people. The feeling is that, there is so many people support each other during the run and the satisfaction of finishing it. Awesomeness!!!
