Yep, today entry lets talk about run. Honestly, sometimes I feel like running from home. That’s the truth.
Not like run away and immediately changed my permanent address. Not that kind of run away. I mean running , literally in action.
Get into my sport shoes, my sweater and my tudung sarung and just run for a few kilometers , for health benefit of course. And also beauty purpose.
My first time joining a marathon other than school program was that one time during second semester, back when I was still enrolling in UITM Dengkil. They did encouraged students to join this kind of activity but during semester 1 I was too busy on other stuff. Well, you gotta try everything right, YOLO?
So , I didn’t really remember how much I paid for it, maybe Rm45 or Rm35. I joined the 1okm run, and I really don’t have any friends at that time to accompany me. My housemates, they all went for 3km fun run.
Excuse me, if it’s 3km then it’s no fun. I need some adrenaline running through my vein. But who am I kidding anyway, you don’t need friend while running. You either left them behind or they left you behind.
The best thing about running is being competitive . Sometimes with other participant , sometimes it is just a competition within me. Either an ego to be ahead of other people or simply an ego to break a former time taken records.
For 3 months consecutively, I jog every morning despite having class or not to train my stamina. I would usually go out around 6.30 if I have early class or 7 if I don’t. Lucky me, my class always start late except for Friday. And not to forget, I do have cheat day. But like once a week.
And what pushed me forward on that day was simply looking at other people run in front of me. My inner voice would just go,
“Come on, just a few more run to beat that lady in red”
“You can do this, run to that lamp post and then you can walk”
“He just run pass you, don’t let him go that far”
“Hey you have practiced right? No giving up. Now or never!”.
But, I know my limit though. I know when to stop or when I should push myself. At the end of the day, I wouldn’t want to pass out in the middle of the street. What matter is I finished the race I started.
The best feeling ever is knowing that you don’t surrender during your struggles.
Something I would always want to remember, so during my own hardship I can always recall and inspire myself “Do you remember that one time you don’t quit and you succeed?”
Yes I do.
By the way, I went for a free simple medical check up afterwards and my glucose level is umm slightly higher than normal. erk? Must be from the banana. And milo.
Screw you BANANA and MILO!
alright, just kidding. I love Banana.
I am definitely going to join this kind of run in the future. When I have money HEHE. But right now, I’m considering to join expedition to summit of Gunung Kinabalu which is going to cost me around Rm600 to RM900. Where to find money?
Alright that’s all for today.
