Furthermore, I would like also to congratulate myself for some positive things that happened since I started running:
1. Lose weight. - from 170lb to 158lb
2. Ran distances more than 10k - I've gone beyond 41k, ran two full marathons this year.
3. Met people who are really deep into running. - Thanks for the takbo.ph community. I've met people who are not just mere nodding acquaintances,they are now my friends and running buddies.

4. Invincibility from sickness - I almost did it. I fell sick once when I waded in the flood water during the great flood. I sustain a wound in the knee when i struck a blunt object. Afterwhich,I got a flu and a bad cold.
5. Influenced other people to run - Three of my friends are now running addicts after months of inducing them the good effect of running in my life,they finally gave in.
