There was no fanfare, no photo op, no race but I accomplished what I wanted in a very simple and plain run in the rain with my partner for life…that’s how I attained my first 1,000K.
Last week, I was looking forward to join the Masters Run with the intent of completing my first 1,000K in that race which I anticipated to be very enjoyable as it was organized by the Bald Runner. And with my goal almost within my reach, I wanted to complete it in a very memorable way, so full of excitement I sent my representative to register me. A night before the race, I prepared myself and my things for the race. I sat the alarm and slept early. However, at 3 in the morning, my partner told me that he is not feeling well but willing to accompany me to the race. As much as I love to, I should prioritize my husband’s welfare before my run. I told him we can forgo running the Masters as there will be next time. Moreso, the rain kept on pouring and the streets in our subdivision were already flooded so I thought that maybe there is another and better plan for me. Maybe, I really have to finish my target mileage in the meek and simple way.
