Run United Philippine Marathon, my first full marathon?

After the three successful events of Unilab and Run Rio team dubbed as Run United Trilogy from Leg 1 to leg 3 composed of different distances, 500m, 3k,5k,10k and 21km in RU1 and RU2, in RU3 the distance are 500m, 3k,5k,10k,21km and the Afro Distance of Coach Rio Dela Cruz – 32km. Run United Philippine Marathon is now open especially for those runners looking forward to run their first full marathon, 42km.

Last two legs, I am one of the participants who conquered the nice route  of Run United, about two 21km (Run United 1 and 2) distance from Bonifacio Taguig to SM Mall of Asia. But, last leg I missed to get my 3rd piece of my medal due to my full schedule with my family before the event and not enough preparation/trainings. I witnessed how running enthusiasts showed their dedication to finish the race despite of heavy rains. I feel jealous when the runners completed their medals.
Now, I’m looking forward to participate the Run United Philippine Marathon, since I am new in running 42km distance is one on my list. Hope that I could run in this category, my first full marathon! 😀 How about you? Is this your first full Marathon?

By October, I will go back in training and start preparing for this upcoming event!
