You know how it feels when someone you admire acknowledges you and your work, like a well-esteemed professor giving you an A+ or your boss tapping your back for a job well done? That’s how I felt when Marie Calica, Editor-in-Chief of Runner’s World Philippines, invited me to be on the cover of Runner’s World Philippines’ Oct-Dec 2012 issue.
Whenever I recount my story of how I started running in 2006, it always starts with an 8-week beginners’ program that I downloaded from Runner’s World. From then on, Runner’s World became my source for all things running. At that time, I didn’t have anyone to ask nor were there many local running blogs or websites to read, but there was RW! It was my running bible…and it still is.
Aw, Runner’s World, it’s an honor to be featured on your pages. Thanks for allowing me to share my story and, um, how I’m “Stub-born to Run.” Now you know that you’re partially to blame for creating this bullish runner.
