Pia Wurtzbach, tinulak ng pagkakasakit ng Covid-19 para sumali sa New York City Marathon

Isa raw sa dahilan kung bakit sasali sa marathon si Pia Wurtzbach ay dahil gusto niyang palakasin ang katawan niya, lalo na raw noong mag-positive siya sa COVID-19 noong January.         "Something clicked over New Year (when I had Covid) and I was just sick and tired of being sick and tired. I felt like, ‘Okay Pia if you don’t do it now, you’ll never do it.’”

Pinaghahandaan na ni Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach sa pagsali nito sa 2022 New York City Marathon. 

Ito raw ang kauna-unahang marathon na sasalihan ng beauty queen-actress kaya noong February pa raw siya nagte-training.

Sa kanyang Instagram, in-upload ni Pia ang photo na suot niya ang kanyang running outfit and hydration belt habang nagpapahinga at nakatanaw siya sa Lake Como in Italy.

Caption pa niya: "It’s only 3 months before race day — and these were my thoughts before I started training and got serious about running cos I was never a runner before, and I couldnt even stand doing any sort of cardio then. But I’ve always looked at runners with a lot of respect.

"But here I am getting ready for the NYC marathon @nycmarathon. 😍 It will be my first ever marathon & I’ve been training for it since late Feb.

"Something clicked over New Year (when I had Covid) and I was just sick and tired of being sick and tired. I felt like, ‘Okay Pia if you don’t do it now, you’ll never do it.’

"So I took the chance! I joined the registration (not under a brand or org this time), made a donation and waited… and I got in! It didn’t take me 3 tries this time! 🤪 Yay!,” biro pa niya pertaining to her triple effort to win the Binibining Pilipinas-Universe crown.

Patuloy niya: “My ticket to my first ever marathon. ‘Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Athlete from the Philippines!’ na ba to?! Chos lang. 😂

"But seriously, I’ve been having so much fun with it and it has improved my life.

"I feel better. I sleep better. I manage stress better.

"And it feels so good to actually feel and see progress. Today, my weekend runs go for 18km++ when a few months ago I couldnt even finish 3k without hating everything. What I’m trying to say is - it’s all possible.”

Kahit daw maraming temptations para madiskaril ang training niya ay kinakaya niya.

"Anyway, ang haba na nito. BTW, hello also from Italy! It’s been a little challenging to train here with all the pizza and gelato around. But LABAN! 😆 I’ll be sharing more about my running journey as race day gets closer. Wish me luck 🍀💙"
