I Commit to be FIT: A Run for Love, Hope and Joy

In a world where people have different sports inclinations, it’s nice to be with individuals who share the same interest as you do.

February 8, 2015 marked another momentous event for runners.

It’s not one of those big running events, but it surely was geared towards a noble goal. It aims to help give Jeremiah 33:6-7 foundation victims get their first step in finding a brighter future away from violence and abuse.

Miles for Jeremiah, a run for love, hope and joy, was a run organized by Pinoy Aspiring Runners as they marked their 2nd anniversary .

All proceeds of the run will go directly to Jeremiah 33:6-7 Foundation, dedicated to serving and loving God by serving child victims of sexual abuse.

A Post Marathon Recovery Plan

I completed my very first full marathon (42K) just a week ago. It has to be one of my  most memorable runs so far.

Running lingo will tell you that a plan of action is critical in Marathon recovery.

study suggests that the immune system is compromised for up to 3 days after long runs such as marathons, thus, it is highly recommended that you rest as much as possible following such experience. Furthermore, 7-10 days of rest give your body enough time to fully recover from the cellular damage caused during the race.

Miles For Jeremiah was just in time that I have already given myself ample time to rest.

Go the Extra Mile

It is always a joy to see runners gather in one place.

Though some of the participants just finished their marathon seven days ago, never did I hear any of them complaining.

You’ll love this spirit when you join fun runs. It’s just one of those benefits you get from being immersed in a positive community.

It’s been 2 months since I had my first run which was a 16K. That even ignited my passion for running. I have never looked back since.

I consider it as one of the best decisions I’ve made in my whole life.

Nothing Teaches Us Better than Our Own Experience

I remember having to struggle during my first 16K. It’s great to have applied all the learnings I got from that experience.

I consider the “Miles for Jeremiah” run as one of the smoothest runs I’ve had so far. Not only have I improved in terms of stamina and endurance, but also on the right preparations prior to the run.

By joining fun runs like this, you just don’t commit yourself to becoming fit, but it also shows what it really means to help others.

Miles for Jeremiah was indeed a run for love, hope and joy.

To everyone who became a part of this event, you just made a difference!

“What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.”- Albert Pike

‘Till our next run.

See you at the finish line!
