We Run This

22Oct08

This past Sunday, Team Casiga, which comprised of my sister, Leilani, my friend, Christine and myself participated in Nike+ Women’s Half Marathon. Although the official race was held in San Francisco, women from all over the country were able to participate in the half as well. Runners receive a finishers t-shirt along with a Tiffany keychain and Nike+ virtual trophy.

We created our own route by running a few times around Waipio park then down to Waikele and around the shopping center, and finally around Christine’s neighborhood. We completed the race in about 2 hours and 10 minutes. Being that this is my first time ever running in a half marathon (or even running longer than 3 miiles), I feel so proud of myself for accomplishing such a task. This was such an amazing experience that mentally, it feels that I can conquer anything. Come on, 13 miles with no real training, that is unreal. So I would like to thank Tine and Lan for motivating me to do this race and for being awesome running partners. Can’t wait for the Great Aloha Run!

    And people ask why I run….you don’t know the feeling of empowerment you accomplish after a run until you actually go out there and run, am I right???
