Wow, it’s almost April and I haven’t write anything since January 2014 😀
Quite busy with many things lately, from building our own startup with my wife, learning about cloud technology, to training for half marathon. Yes, half marathon and we’re going to race this Sunday.
To begin with, I’m not a good runner. I run regularly, like twice a month, but only for short distance in a slower pace. I love to see people running Berlin marathon but I always thought long distance running is too much for me.
Then, on November 2013, my wife registered us for the Berlin half marathon 😀 She’s not a runner, just like me, but she said, “it’s time to say yes to ourselves”.
It’s true what she said. Since January, we run 2 or 3 times a week. On weekend, we tried to run long distance. We started with 5KM and gradually increase the distance. Two weeks ago, we managed to run around 18KM on the weekend (and then I caught cold on the next week 😀 ).

Our aim is just to finish the race in 3 hours. It’s not so fast for some people (especially Germans 🙂 ) but for me, I want to enjoy the run and the scenery. That’s the only time where you can run around the city, on big streets without cars or bicycles, and have a lot of people cheering up for you.
