I can’t believe I will run the Chicago Marathon!

I am writing this post at the McCormick Convention Center in Chicago after my husband and I have picked up our race packets for the Chicago Marathon. Still I can’t believe that I will be a participant in this event!

From a non athlete, I will be enjoying a 42 kilometer course this Sunday together with 50,000 runners! Hopefully I can finish this race. I have ran several short runs in the past few days and the cold gave my “used to the warm climate” legs some very painful cramps!

So, to all those who will read this post, you can do it too!

But it has to start will a small step, a short walk, a short run…

About pinayironmom

Pinay Ironmom is a typical mom who wakes up before 6 am to prepare my 3 children for school. After this, I make my husband coffee, similar to the Nescafe commercial on TV of a couple's typical morning. Work is normally a tour of Northern or Southern Luzon to inspect projects we are building, checking quality of designs or preparation of presentations to prospective clients. My schedule is flexible luckily, I can squeeze in hearty lunches with my favorite lunchmate and training early in the afternoon or right after business hours. Weekends are bike days on Saturdays at MOA or Daang Reyna and Sunday is my me time - my long run day. Oh warm ups and stretchings are trips to the grocery, cool down is hearing mass and giving thanks to God for a wonderful week. This is ME :)
