This is a series of event that happened during the happy run, an advocacy run for the benefit of less fortunate school children. As I geared for this run, I prepared myself for an easy-relaxed run since I will be running together with Xty all throughout the race. This is her first 15km race and I am excited to evaluate her if she could run it within 90 minutes, that was our goal. After three 20km LSDs of sunday running in UPD, I believe she is capable of running races easily with a distance longer than 10km.
Believing that this will really be a happy run, we were caught too by surprises presented by the organizers during the course of the race. The gimmicks and the route, they presented a bliss amidst the difficulties of running and the runners as well, as they wore smiles and laughters on their faces, reveal that this run was truly a reminiscing one. Here, I am sharing, are the chronicles of what had transpired during the happy run.
a commitment to keep before the race
the rush of not being alone
the music playing into thin air
the secluded march you once belong
those with laughter and cheers for you
the beauty running in serenity
the need to try what lies ahead
the goodness in an alluring place
the lifting of your weary legs
the excitement as you near the end
the joy after eighty eight minutes
all for the love that you both share.
