Welcome To The World of Running!
Running, it has always been a thing of mine since I play basketball and all, but a 5 kilometer run? Now that’s what I’ve never tried to achieve! But today, I have finished a 5 kilometer run without stopping, probably with a bit of brisk walking but you get the point. Anyway, I’ll try to get straight to the point with this article since I don’t want you to see my ranting like totally.
Anyway, the day started of very well with me getting my smooth bones on. I was a little late on my schedule but I made it through a friend’s house to get free transportation since my dad was a bit busy with work. There was this slight problem though… We had to leave a man behind. My friends’ companions had this slight fear that they will not be able to start the marathon in time but might have been a little bit too punctual, so we kind left my other friend. I personally didn’t care about my punctuality during that time since I paid for the race to be able to help Pasig River and make a video for my Youtube account but since that happened, what transcended that day became way different from what I expected. It was sad leaving my friend behind since I care about those that get left behind rather than those who are already on their way ‘cause y’know I know the feeling of getting left behind that’s why I never leave people behind, but how come this time, I made a disastrous choice by going with a person who already has companions? I pondered that question in my head while my friend, his family, and I rode the car. The ambiance in the car was different for me since I really felt bad at that time but what made me even more feel bad was that the people inside the car were even more concerned about punctuality rather than a person who is alone, though late! It troubled me, for in that time I knew something must have been wrong with society and as I stepped off the car after we parked in some place near the running route, I swore to never leave a person behind ever again. That just isn’t my thing and it never will be.
Anyway, I had to put my running face on so I put aside all my worries for a while and ran for fun and for the Pasig River. It was an awesome experience running! And what made it more special was the fact that I was searching for a few people, specifically actors so that I could bring home something for SC(click this for StainlessChamporado’s link)! In the end though, I didn’t get to have a short commercial for SC and I ended up being alone for a while since I lost my friend (the same one who owned the car) during the marathon. In addition, almost everything went wrong that day and it was like everything I planned burned to ashes and I seemingly saw myself again, alone and broken to bits.
In the end, I reflected on what transpired that day and asked myself “was this day suppose to be an awesome?” And yeah, it didn’t feel like it. Sure, it was nice running, and this will surely NOT be my last run, but in the coming runs, a full set of friends would be nice? I don’t wish for another run wherein I will experience yet another “epic lose situation” by not finding hot girls, not having an awesome time with friends and not getting a video for SC all at the same time. A replay of 11/20/11 would’ve been awesome but me losing my racing bib must’ve been God’s way of telling me to stop planning stuff and just keep letting things happen ‘cause that’s how things are suppose to happen right? Perhaps life is just like a marathon, all things & persons must flow by their own course and way.
