Inspiration and Commitment. Two big words to live by.
A 220-pounder guy 5 years ago took its way to fitness and healthy lifestyle. His journey finds its way to a better tomorrow by continually exploring activities gaining a better experience to life at the same time feeling good about himself.
It was August 2009 when the journey of this fat kid starts by enrolling himself in a known gym with just a simple random thought. The journey has begun as he continually motivates himself for a better health benefit.
After a year of monotony in the gym, seeking ways to be more active, he tried engaging himself into running. Running his first 5K fun run in ‘Run to Read’ in August 2010 and voyage himself through 10K, 15K distances through half marathons as he aspire to become a marathoner. He ran his first marathon overseas in the ‘Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore’ in December of 2011. Continually engaging himself into the world of running and striving for more, he completed his first ultramarathon in the recently concluded ‘Tagaytay to Nasugbu 50K Ultramarathon’ last May of this year. He never fails his incessant dedication to healthy lifestyle and fitness.
Going back to his first sport of swimming in the elementary years and eventually having his own bike, triathlon has paved its way, marking his 5th place finish in the ‘Wetshop Newbie Triathlon’ last May 2012.
The never-ending expedition in seeking new ways to live life to the fullest took its way to a lot of other activities. From wakeboarding to surfing, from boxing to muay thai, from trail blazing to mountain climbing and now enjoying the inner peace that yoga benefits.
The quest is infinite but the inspiration and commitment will never tear apart. Persistently thanking God for the gift of life and forever nourishing it. For in the end, it’s not the life that you live but how you live your life.
