J&J #19, first 10k & destiny

Okay, it’s official! I’ve completed the first 10k in my life!!! 😆 Here’s the route map (I saw it in someone’s blog, can’t remember who was), it’s cool, isn’t it?


okay. before you ask, am I training for a race? NO!!! Am I running everyday or so? NO! I just run for fun, mostly spontaneous decision to have a mental giveaway, to enjoy the weather, to be more outdoor. 🙂 I am really enjoying this! oh… and I think I’m doing well too. The last time I talked to my guy friends (one of them run races), I told him that I’d do 8 km in 40 min, he was amazed! Yesterday, I did 10k in 50 min. Not bad right? I might actually run for a race, again JUST FOR FUN! 😆

Destiny? Yes, yesterday two things happened.

#1 remember my car accident last year? yesterday the agent called me to let me know that she’ll send me a check with additional $1500 as compensation for …. (I can’t even remember). A normal person would get excited for the extra $$. But I wasn’t excited at all, not for a second! 😯 $$ seems to be just a number for me. I know that it can “buy” some happiness, but.. no excitement was my first natural reaction.

#2 I went to a conference and when the speaker showed puzzles (about the economy)? I was illuminated!!! My blood flew faster, my HR got up, I could felt excitement in me, EVERYWHERE!

So, my destiny is to do RESEARCH and NOT BUSINESS! 😉

  1. Wow! That’s great that you did your own 10k! In my opinion, it’s even greater that you know what your calling is! I’m still trying to figure that out.

    I am a runner though I’ve cut back considerably to do yoga and strength training! I used to run 20-35mpw! My longest race is the half marathon & I finished in 1hr 54mins 12s 😀 in the mountains so I’m please enough not to do it again haha. I only run 2x a week now and I’m much happier!

  3. wow! for a casual runner, you’re FAST!! good for you!! and it’s so awesome that you found your calling – i’m still searching. hopefully i’ll find it soon, though… i need to start my “career” asap!

    i started running 1.5 years ago after reading healthy living blogs for a while. i had never been a “runner” before, and actually had to walk most of the mile test in gym class. so i wanted to see what all the hype was about, with all of these people running 3, 5, 10 miles a day. it was a good challenge for me, not having an athletic background, and i’m still running now! but i’m not nearly as fast as you! woooo!

  4. i just run for fun, as well! hey i just looked and didnt have the post from you, but i checked my junk mail and there it was!!! i am glad you said something! i have saved it in my guest post file and will be posting it later this month on a thursday. thank you so much! the egg dish looks so yummy and healthy!!

  5. Umm you totally kicked my 10K time and I was in an actual race! Congrats! That is an awesome accomplishment!

  6. lesouefsbrouilles

    i run for the feeling. it makes me feel infinite =)

  7. I love how you wrote the route out on your hand!

    I’ve never really been interested in a profession. Work to me is just a job I go to everyday to be able to pay the bills. When I leave the office, I don’t think about it until I go back.

  8. It looks great. I don’t eat chicken but will try it out with beef or lamb.

  9. 10K is awesome, Coco! I’ve only done it once in my life. You should be proud 🙂

    I am still working on carving out my career destiny 🙂 I think I’m onto something, though 😉 Speaking of which, THANK YOU for visiting my new blog!

  10. I started running as the result of a gift actually–my sister got me a Nike+ for my iPod, so I decided to give it a try one day…the rest is history!

  11. 10k in 50 min is fast!!!! Runner fast!!!! Maybe you have a knack for running! Congrats!!! 

  12. Sounds like you’re a really fast runner, Coco! Oooh, that egg strata looks delicious…I’ll have to try it this weekend!

  13. Sounds like you’re a speedy runner, Coco! So funny how different people are passionate about different things. I’m the same way with research. 🙂

    I started running more when I retired from gymnastics to keep in shape. Now it’s a great stress reliever!

    I’m passionate about nutrition and communicating the latest research in ways everyone can understand.
