You will have noticed that we are interested and invested in the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon here at Viva Naija. That because it completely uplifts our spirits. Yes, we know things are hard in Nigeria. The naira is in free-fall and even the cost of egg has gone up. Egg is now N40 o! As if the fowl went to America to carry the belle first. People are suffering and they are STRESSED. Which is kinda why this marathon is important.
It is important to look into something other than the day to day of just getting by. It is vital that we exercise; that we pursue good health and healthy living. Otherwise all the outlining will be in vain. You work, make connections, make some money, try to leave something behind, and then unfortunately, you pass before you get a chance to enjoy the fruits of your labour? That ain’t no life.
A Race For Life; Not Just For Marathon Professionals
That’s why the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon is a fantastic idea. Everybody needs a reason to stay sane and a marathon helps with that. It increases your heart rate, it helps with your overall health, and it helps to clear the mind.
You do NOT have to be a professional to take part. You do not even have to race to the end. All you have to do is RUN! Put one foot in front of the other and move!
The prize money is great, yes. $50,000 for the overall winner and one million naira for the first Nigerian winner. That’s serious cash in the Buhari economy! But do it for your health, your sanity, your loved ones.
