Earlier this year, I have witnessed my boyfriend and about a few hundred other people officially become marathoners. I made a short blog post about that here. It was through The Bull Runner Dream Marathon that they were able to reach their goal of running and finishing their first ever 42km race.

Last Friday, August 8 at 12nn, Jaymie Pizarro and the rest of the organising team opened the registration for The Bull Runner Dream Marathon 2015. The limited slots for 900 people were filled up in about a couple of hours. For the registration, one does not necessarily need to be fast but one has to have a really fast internet connection.
Thanks to JC's good connection and fast typing skills (he did it via his iPhone!), my application was already submitted within seven minutes. I immediately got the email confirmation that day saying that my application was sent but it did not guarantee me a slot. Then two days ago, I got the email saying that I am included in the list of 900 runners who will be reserved a slot. It was probably the best news I got that day. And maybe for the whole week. Teehee. The list is also posted on the webpage here which you can view anytime.
Once I pay the registration fee, there is no turning back. I have six months to prepare for the marathon which is set to take place on February 22, 2015. Right now, I'm feeling pretty excited since I've been raring to conquer 42.195km. Training starts... like right now! :D
