#Fitspiration: Anne Curtis Ticks Bucket List as She Finishes Strong in NYC Marathon

On November 6, Anne Curtis ticked another box on her bucket list as she finished strong on her first-ever marathon, the New York City Marathon.

This is a great achievement as the New York City Marathon is one of the largest and most popular marathons in the world.

She posted this finisher shot on her Instagram account.

Along with the photo, she said:

I did it! My very first marathon in NYC! What a bucket list moment ✔️ I can’t explain how fulfilling it is when you cross the finish line. It certainly isn’t easy but the whole experience is worth the physical pain. Each borough (there were 5) had a different feel, music and vibe. The spectators are there to cheer you on, give you power up high-fives and push you when you feel like you want to stop. To all the kababayans that were out there today to cheer me on… screaming and some even with posters, Maraming Salamat. ❤️ Nakakaiyak and yan po ang dahilan kung bakit halos hindi nawala ang ngiti ko. After my first… I would like to conquer more! 26.2 or 42.165 dedicated and inspired by the FILIPINO YOUTH and it’s through God’s grace, I FINISHED!
