The week after the 2nd BDM (Bataan Death March) 102 kms Ultramarathon last March 2010, I lost a lot of weight. At 145 before the big event, I was 138 the week after. And then I gained it all back and more. My weight suddenly rose to as high as 150 lbs dwindling up and down to 145.
Now, more than a week after the 2nd PAU (Philippine Association of Ultrarunners) 65Kms +5 Ultramarathon in Ilocos Norte that started in Pasuquin and finished in Pagudpud, I am surprised.
I weighed myself before I run this afternoon. I’m 137.28 lbs. Perfect. I’m lighter. Right in time for my track work-outs where I will definitely be in no need of any excess weight.
Thank God. Thanks to Ultrarunning. Thanks to the challenges.
