This blog post is written minutes after my Run United 21K run, even before the winners are even announced! It’s quite nice to have a netbook handy and Wi-Fi around! Anyways here’s my account fresh off the race.
It was an evening of pure delight last night at Decagon Silver City as those who have completed all three required legs of the Run United Trilogy were recognized. It’s an event that was so overwhelmingly positive that even critics and detractors alike were all smiles and forgot their rants!
True, I already did ultramarathons in the past, but this year’s Run United 3 was my first ever 32K race. Unfortunately though I came to race partially injured because I had thought I’d missed it.
Run United 2 was of dire importance to me because it would serve as my third anniversary race! I can’t believe it’s already been three years since my debut race, and from that race of less than a thousand participants, my most recent race swelled to a staggering 14,000 attendees!
The love for travel must be in my blood as I suddenly realized, without much effort, that I had scheduled a travel practically every month for the second half of the year, both local and international! And of course most of these revolve around the sport I love, running.
