Do Run Run Run… A Do Run Run

On January 26th, I ran for the first time around Prospect Park without stopping!! That's a milestone: 3 miles in 45 minutes. That's 1 mile per 15 minutes of running. I better pick up the pace!

What I learned from the Coach: if I start to feel cramps ("stiches"), control my breathing. My lung muscles are working so hard that they'd start to cramp. Not to stop running, give my lungs a break by establishing breathing rhythm. 

Like meditation.

New Year and Resolving

Whooo… I'm late with my blog posts. The holiday couch potato in me caught up with me until now. I didn't make any resolutions for the year but I did set up some goals for myself:

1. Get that website that I promised a year ago up and running
2. Keep on running (it does wonders in controlling my blood sugar levels)
3. Clean up my desk

BTW, I made Volunteer of the Year for the Graphic Artists Guild. Check it out at newyork.gag.org. This is what happens when I open my big mouth to make necessary change for the overall good.

Happy New Year!!
