I read somewhere that to run a great race, all the elements have to be just right. The weather, your conditioning, what you’re wearing etc.
Today all the conditions were just right when I overtook not 1 but 2 Kenyans.
I saw them from a far. I had a feeling that they are the ones winning all and every race since QCIM. As I got closer, I recognized the logo of the water company sponsoring them in Manila. Sila nga!
I increased my pace and triumphantly overtook them!
Everything was just right. I was wearing running shoes. They we wearing flipflops. I was wearing compression tights. They were wearing jeans. I was running and they were walking. 😀
The rest of the 10K went smoothly. Unfortunately, I bonked at 15K. I stopped for some coke and doughnut and walked back to the gym.
🙂 After overtaking Kenyans, I’m now dreaming of running with Haile. Maybe tomorrow…
