Lessons from Terry Fox Run Singapore 2013

Singapore Terry Fox Run 2013Here are 5 lessons I learnt from Terry Fox Run Singapore 2013 today:
Know how to control speed
It is longer than usual. My typical workout was only 30 minutes and 3km long. It is because I usually run at midnight and I cannot run fast after a tiring working day.

Run for a cause
I feel the support for water and banana is so essential. No race bibs, no prizes, no goodie bags. That is the true meaning of running for a cause. I would memorize the life of Terry Fox, who run to raise funds for cancer research.
“Even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue. It’s got to keep going without me.” – Terry Fox

Life is a journey.
I cannot run 42 km marathon unless I run 21 km race.
And I cannot run 21km race if I don’t try to run 10km.
I proud that I did it today and it would be a stepping stone for 21 km race.
Not everyone was born with innate ability to run. Practice make things happen.

Pushing through limit.
On the second part of the race, I was nearly exhausted. I have to run slower. I have to keep my breath until the last 1 km of the race. Run for a long race required the maintenance of speed. At the last km, I ran as fast as I could to touch the finish line.

Find your mate to run together
Today I try to run to test my limit. I did it but it is somehow selfish.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”, from an African proverb.
