With a little over three months left, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach shared her preparations before the New York City (NYC) marathon.

On Instagram, she got candid with her emotions and just freely wrote what she has been feeling throughout her journey,

“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 couldn’t even stand doing any sort of cardio then. But I’ve always looked at runners with a lot of respect,” she stated.


 

 

The NYC marathon will be the first one the beauty queen will be participating in. She began her training for the marathon way back in February. It was after she got infected with COVID-19 that she pushed herself and register for this year’s marathon.

The 32-year-old personality also revealed that she didn’t sign under a brand or an organization when she registered for the marathon. Just like an ordinary person, she made a donation and patiently waited in line to compete.

According to her, she was just feeling sick and tired – eventually motivating herself to register. Since then, Pia has been training rigorously and claimed that she has been doing better both physically and mentally.

“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 couldn’t even finish 3k without hating everything. What I’m trying to say is - it’s all possible,” she added.

In her Instagram stories, Pia shared that it is the nutrition part that she needs to work on. She would be temporarily bidding goodbye to her favorite snacks as the date for the marathon draws closer.

She has been training in Italy wherein she admitted she found it quite difficult because of the gelatos and pizzas that surround her.

“I’ll be sharing more about my running journey as race day gets closer. Wish me luck,” she wrote.

Friends and fans of Pia shared their excitement for her challenging new journey. They have been consistently showing the beauty queen love and support as seen in the comments section of her posts.
