In our world of running, speed plays an essential part. Many of us aspire to be one of the best when it comes to speed. We train hard to eventually break a personal best, to exact revenge from those who outrun us before, or to outpace those that makes us a target during the race. We even research and apply several running programs. Some attend and participate in a running clinic, and some even hire personal coaches. Everyone of us is an athlete in the making, all we need is to persevere and dedication on our chosen craft.
What separates Hamilton from Gebrselassie? Rossi from Armstrong? Nothing really. They're all speedsters, they're all winners in their own field. They're all world champions. But what stands out is the speed of Haile. Arguably!
I always take a glimpse of this sign whenever I run close to it in Fort Bonifacio. It kinda remind me how fast I am going. For us runners, it inspires; for motorists, it cautions. Whether to motivate or to enforce, it was installed to serve a purpose. There were six of them strategically placed at the vicinity of Bonifacio Global City, I knew, because we made them. I'm in the industry.
If you speed up, be cautious. If you do, inspire. And don't forget to light-up especially if its dark. See you at the starting line.
