” Forget the risk and take the fall… If it’s what you want then it’s worth it all. ”
That photo taken by Mr. Arada was when I was competing in De La Salle (I was a sophomore and it’s my 8th year in that field). I cannot forget it because that’s one of the most rewarding relay I’ve ever had. During the time when it’s about my turn as the last runner, I set my fears aside. I knew at that point that we were losing because the first runners of our opponents had a good start by forming distances apart from my team.
As it was seen, I am not wearing my spikes shoes anymore because I wanted to feel the fate that they would be passing me through that tube. I ran as if the track set no boundaries. I just felt the air breezing upon me as I pounded my feet off the grasses.
Struggling- maybe it’s the reason why we won. I didn’t know exactly what happened but I made it (ofcourse as a team). I aced them by the last 100 meters, sprinting. Not caring. Passion against pressure was a part of me that’s always gonna try.
