a rainy day’s run

it sure was pouring this afternoon.
i had half a mind to call off training for today. But knowing that my marathon is in 3 weeks time… it makes me really uneasy to skip a training.. especially the long run.
so. i put on my asics ds trainers. wore my long body suit and i hit the road as the rain pours on me.
Before i could reach 2km, my feet were soaked wet and i can hear the sound that i hated so much “squash squash squash…”… sucks.

My running route today was the standard ritual route i will take before important races. A route to keep my faith going. A route that helps me every single second during the race. A route back to VS. The school that has given me so much.

Maybe its the rain. Maybe i wasnt feeling well. Maybe its just me…
Lots and lots of thoughts surface today. thats very usual for me.

I thought about my dearest dearest basketball peeps. Lennard.. Yida.. Jeremy.. Marcus… Evans.. Abra.. Ben.. Sherman.. and the rest of the team… Those that have been with me since i started running. Those that have given me such a wonderful memory. Tomorrow is the start of a war that you guys need to fight. I told Lennard that i will be fighting my own battle in Japan. Remember bros. We never give up. We may not be the best. But. WE NEVER GIVE UP. I know with this attitude, it will drive us higher and better every single day. Please.. please.. do not give up just yet. Do not be proud. Do not be complacent. Do not stop. Till the final second. You have absolute control over your battle. We will fight together, in our own battles.. and we will make each other proud. we will give our very best. we will do ourselves and our team mates proud.

I thought about the my fellow Victorians who has done the school proud. The very people i have always admired. The people who are truly “Sportsman, Gentlemen and Professional”. Recently, i had received a few blessings from the cross-country school mates. They encouraging me to race hard and to “keep the flag unfurled”. I hope i will do as well as they did. But one thing i know. NIL SINE LABORE. nothing without labour. The very words that drive through me training every single day. Hopefully. I will do well in kobe later this month.

and.. I thought about my running buddy. How we are gonna troll through the streets of Kobe in our awesome ASICS attire. How we are out-do ourselves. WE WILL DO IT.

of course. i thought of you. but it just seemed so far. but that is gonna be another story for another day. haha..

in conclusion. i just need to do my best. out-do myself and give my best. simple hor? hahahah! dafuq.

I believe miracles do happen.
When God is on your side.

Zac.
love and peace.
