Yes, as of October 1, 2010 I am now a member of the 10,000km Club.
I started my daily running on April 27,2007. After 3 year 5 month and 5 days (lapsed time not running time) I have logged a total of 10,010.23km. I started documenting my daily run with a NikePlus and after 4 months shifted to Polar and a year after shifted to Garmin. Presently I am using a Garmin 310xt.
While I feel great to have reached the 10,000km mark, I find that my age is catching up on me. I do not feel as strong as I was 3 years ago. Not that I am sickly at present, but, I could just feel that as I am about to enter my 60 years of age, my legs are getting heavier and my lungs are getting smaller. With these in consideration, baring any major health problem and with God’s guidance, I hope to reach the 20,000km by October 1, 2015. I have given now a time frame of 5 years due to conditions provided earlier.
To those of you who are still young, make good use of your youth, easy on the liquor, night outs and invest on healthy foods and exercises so that you will have a much stronger and healthier mature life when you reach your 50’s and 60’s. How I wish that I could have been as health conscious then as I am now.
See you guys on the road!
