I’ve been joining fun runs for seven months now and 10k has been the greatest physical challenge for me so far. But that changed last Saturday. Last weekend, I joined the first vertical marathon in the Philippines, an indoor running event done on stairs. It was a new experience and it was indeed challenging. I enjoyed it nonetheless! Pretty fulfilling!

Personal best! Well, everyone who participated last Saturday set their own personal record being the first of its kind challenge. I’m so proud being part of it.
By the way, thank you to Skechers Philippines for the free slot! I hope to win more race kits next year.
