To my first 10 KM race in this April!
I see 2019 as a challenge to my health and mind. The schedule of this year is tighter than last year, but the excitement to race is burning! Because no, I never joined a 10 KM race before if you ask, and so I will not let anything to put that aside.
The race is organised by Borneo Run for the first time ever in Brunei. What is Borneo Run? It is a collaborative efforts of Brunei Darussalam’s Youth and Sport Department, Brunei Darussalam Athletics Federation, Labuan Sports Council, Sabah Sports Council, Sarawak State Sport Council and National Sports Committee of Indonesia.

I made this decision as to change my daily life routines and balance everything I do. This year is also an important academic year, where the result of my study will be most likely define my future career.
With a heavy workload from my school means busy and stress which I try not to use that word very often as it is demotivating. And indeed, running is the cure to that! Healthy body equals to healthy mind, agree?
And yes! I have started running daily since the first of January.
My target by the end of this month is to run for 3 KM in 15 minutes
Next month will be 5 KM in 27 minutes ( my best time in 2015! )
For March, I’m targeting to start running for 10 KM in less than an hour.
And for the 7th Of April, I aim to finish the race and break a personal record, hopefully not a leg.
Is this possible? Yes! ( to myself ) . With a consistent training, daily run and different workouts, and of course – a healthy food consumption.
I will be updating my running journey as often as I could as a motivation in here and on my Instagram! @Veinte04
