The Secret to Eating a 5-Course Dinner with Wine Without Getting Fat

It is definitely fun to walk into a beautiful and fancy restaurant. It is wonderful to chat to VIP guests and media personalities. It is one of life’s great joys to eat wonderfully prepared food paired with delicious wines. Nothing gets better than this!

That is until you wake the next morning and your stomach is bigger after all the fine food and wine you consumed. You feel a little guilty and maybe go to the gym and work out a bit longer than usual or skip breakfast. You can eat well without the guilt and then having to struggle into your pants or skirt the next morning.

13 Lessons from 13 Marathons

With the 38th Milo Marathon this Sunday the 27th of July 2014 I wanted to share the many lessons I have learned in my previous 13 marathons. This will be my 4th Milo Marathon and I am glad to support the race knowing that it has been such a well respected race in the Philippines.

One day I hope to have run 65 marathons like my friend Willy Yao and I am sure I will still be learning valuable lessons then too.

13 Marathons – 13 Lessons

Marathon 1. You Have To Be Well Nourished Before and During the Marathon

I went into my first marathon with total ignorance and paid a heavy price. The Subic International Marathon 2009 (4 hours 31 minutes) was a lesson in nutrition for me as I did not eat a proper lunch before the 4pm start. I was top 30 after 32km and then I hit the wall. I did not even have any food or cash on me that day but I always do now.

Marathon 2. It Is More Fun and Rewarding to Share the Journey

I ran the Great Wall of China Marathon in 2010 in 4:49:39. We joined a Filipino contingent and made some excellent friends and had the time of our lives. Realizing how great it was to be part of a large group helped sway us to join the Melbourne Ironman 2014.

“Begin with the end in mind.” Stephen R. Covey

Our birth certificates do not have an expiration date so we actually have a saying in to how well and how long we live. Of course outside forces may affect this but what we do today will have an impact on our tomorrow.

What is the key to longevity? There is not one perfect answer but many things that you can do to give yourself a better quality and quantity of life. See what is the Primed Lifestyle.
