Every jogger can't dream of being an Olympic champion, but he can dream of finishing a marathon.--Fred Lebow, New York City Marathon co-founder
January 8, 2012 is a day that will forever be carved in my heart and mind. In one fine morning of this momentous Sunday, I stretched myself beyond my limits, summoned the strength I never thought I have and conquered the farthest distance I've ever run in my whole life. After 5 hours, 45 minutes and 22 seconds, I crossed the finish line of my first 42K in the 2012 Cebu City Marathon, an accomplishment I will forever treasure and will always be proud of.
How sweet it is....
