TFW You Need Some Motivation

So I’ve just been trying to find ways to keep motivating myself to keep up with my pseudo healthier lifestyle. Buzzfeed really helps with that, recipes, advice, and all.

My current lifestyle looks like the global economy if you compressed it from when we first started tracking the economy until the present.

2017 Resolution Check In

Hello!

If you didn’t notice (and how could you not :<) this year’s blog posts have all been about running! I guess it came as a sort of secondary New Year’s resolution for me with my main one being losing weight! All of a sudden my priorities shifted and instead of losing weight being my goal, it morphed into a hybrid of running at least one 10k race a month and shedding the pounds. Actually, losing weight became a sort of prize along with the finisher medals (That’s right, Simon Sinek!) I decided onraces instead of regular 10k runs because waking up for them is one of the hardest parts! I didn’t want to mention this before for fear that I might not be able to hold up my end of the bargain early on.

Nat Geo Earth Day Run: 21k and 100% for Mother Earth

This run felt absolutely shitty.

Allow me to explain: I had just come back from a trip that required a long haul flight and I was so scared that I wouldn’t wake up in time for my run because jetlag. I did wake up and got ready to go but on the way I encountered SO. MUCH. TRAFFIC. Welcome back to Manila, Micca. Parking was also a big issue because from the looks of it, there really wasn’t enough for everyone. I was so anxious about not getting there in time that I had a horrible tummy ache and had to use to bathroom. There went all the calories I took this morning 😬

I parked at the very pretty and VERY EXPENSIVE Conrad Hotel (Source: miccadj)

Hollywood Half Marathon/10k/5k: First “Cold Weather” 10k

Sooooo, I sneaked in a 10k during a weekend trip to Los Angeles because I could! Most of the run was done on Hollywood Blvd and we started at Dolby Theater and El Capitan Theater, where many movie premieres happen!

711 Run: Running 10k on the Skyway

I was pretty excited for this race. Not only was it one of the largest ones in the Philippines (~3000 participants!!) but the highlight was getting to run on the Skyway! Below is my race kit but I decided to ditch the sun sleeves last minute cause Heat N was starting at 440am! I highly doubted Mr Sun was gonna be there to annoy me. (Forgot to include my Jaybirds Bluebuds X but they were with me at the race!)

Hufflepuff represent! Also, GO BEARS! (Source: @micca.dj Instagram)
