|Afternoon runs at UP. Where's everyone?|
Since I don't have anyone to run with, I just ran with my shadow. "Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life, the blacker and denser it is." It may be one's link to more primitive animal instincts, which are superseded during early childhood by the conscious mind." "In spite of its function as a reservoir for human darkness... the shadow is the seat of creativity. So that for some, it may be, 'the dark side of his being, his sinister shadow (which) represents the true spirit of life..." - Carl Jung
|I am not alone after all. Jogging with "THE SHADOW."|
|Sun sets at UP.|
|Wala paring kupas.|
|Tastes oh so yummy. Honest to goodness. No frills.|
|NB Store in Shangri-Ladida|
After registering, I get the bag that contains all that I need for race day.
|The bag the contains everything I need for the race.|
|1000 Php shoe discount. Too bad the discount is only until 6 November. But no worries, a small stub right there in the corner gives 20 per cent off until the year ends. Great deal parin.|
|My race bib with timing chip. Also a raffle stub, for a chance to win a Chevrolet car!|
|Rules rules rules.|
NB shoes galore. Good thing I didn't bring any extra cash. Buying running shoes is just too tempting.
The feeling's so strong.
But what really made me decide to join this race is the chance to win a car! That's very unique in a race, getting a chance to win a car. *Fingers cross.
Of course, you just don't put your shoes on and decide to run a race. You must train and prepare for it. Training makes the challenge easier. I like how Manny Pacquiao put it, "The harder you train, the easier the fight."
