"Welcome To My Blog "
I'm Josue E Santos. Also know as Run Aficionado.
I created this page so I can share my running, my thought, my ideas, & views on my life.
Oh yeah! Welcome back readers. It's been a minute since I've share on my Blog, so its time to change that, and bring you back into my weight loss journey. As you see from the photos above, "The Lake Mead Mead Marathon" Race will be my 1st of 2020, I am happy to be running in "Half Marathon". Thank again Craig.
To get ready for this race I been running since the start of the year or actually I haven't really stop running, you can say I've been running year long. Its crazy to even write that because not to long ago I would be the 1st person to say "F*** that, I ain't running Jack.."
but now its something that just bring happiness to my heart and I love being out there running on my own 2 feet.
So what did you do on your New Years Eve? I ended running and rucking the "Resolution un" which is hosted by one of my favorite running companies, Triple Dare. You guys rock, Big shout out to, Heidi, Aubrey, James, Ryan and all my fellow ambassadors. I also had the opportunity to do this with a new friend. Glen Nevada, it was nice seeing you out there brother, keep up the good work.
Right after this I went back to to get ready for the festivities that would follow that night. I'm happy to say I was able to spend it with my family and enjoy some good homemade food for mom. Then it was back home to get rest, so I can be ready for my next race which was the following day. As you can see from the photo I was able to finish the 2nd race with no problem. This time I was running, I needed to see where my 5K time would be. Any Guesses? It was actually not to bad, I was expecting much worst. I finished the race in 47:31. So as you can see these 2 race made sure to keep accountable for my running and at the same time they are part my training.
Since the 1st of month, I been doing my daily running making sure to run at least a 5K, this makes sure to keeps the doctor away. I do my running in the early morning. This helps me start my day feeling accomplished, motivated, and confident in myself. Here is a picture of my training log from 12/30/19-1/10/2020.
As you can tell Im feeling more motivated than even, I have learned to be happy with the process instead of always worrying on the results. I know they will come when I least expected, so for the time being Im learning to be a stronger and better person. Im also developing an incredible support system around me and wont let me fall as I wont let them fall neither, together we have made our lives better. So come back later when I post the result for this race.
RESULTS ARE HERE!
All I can say is what a beautiful course and Im glad I was able to experiences it first hand on a beautiful Saturday Morning. Im glad to say I was happy to see several familiar face. Thanks for being out there, Sandy, Christopher, Ronald. It was nice seeing you at the 9 Miles marker. Thanks for the photos! check them below!
