A week ago around 5pm, I fell asleep in my room for 3 hours. After a long distance running under sun exposure, got sunburn & fatigue I set my room AC to 18’C, lied down on my bed & closed my eyes. I woke up with runny nose, early flu symptoms, guess because of the AC from hot to cold temperature. But, such a relief - it’s a wrap. I made it, the last race in this year.
2018 will end in 2 weeks, time goes fly so fast. I got my new achievements, challenged myself for something that completely new.
As a grown up who lives in a real world we have so much shit to deal with, - mid 2018, I was so unhappy with my life, I’ve got pressures from here & there, being bullied by people whose more power than me, trying to make my existence was useless.. I’ve been trapped in a cancerous environment and it affected my health, I put on so much weight and felt so much negativity toward everything.
I booked a return tix to India in August, didn’t have any idea why I landed in Himalaya.. alone. I didn’t even google the place prior my departure. I just wanted to clear my mind, to find my inner peace, turned out, it wasn’t like in the movies, landed in Himalaya I got high altitude sickness and diarrhea for two days. But, I found amazing places, nice people & new cultures, crazy road trip adventure.
I climbed the Himalayan hills. It took a lot of cardio & physical effort to reach that peak due to we’re on 3.5k m above sea level, thin oxygen, walking a few steps will make you gasping. When I reached the Tibetan flags, saw the city and people are like a miniature from the peak I stood, I told myself.. ‘thanks India, your nature is amazing, Im more confident to sign in a Full Marathon in December!
Look, in less than 4 months, I ran a 5km to full marathon. I really made it, I didn’t give up when I felt like I wanted to give up, when I dragged my legs at 13km during my Half Marathon, when I felt so tired of humidity & extreme heat last week during my Marathon. I handled those pains & keep my chin up like when being bullied, I won’t let situation put me down
Now, I know why people love running. Running teaches me to be resilient & move on .. Running is like a therapy, #freemyendorphins
