The Lord is risen! Easter is a reminder for us Christians that the Lord died for us, has risen and won the battle for us – giving us a new beginning!
After Easter Sunday mass, I planned on running with my high school friends Donna and Rhea (or wish for Rhea). The question is, do I go and meet Donna in Morong by foot or bring a car.
At quarter to seven, I am on the road…guess I am gonna do it by foot…Wohooo…New Adventure! New Running Route.
I saw my cousin Addie as I leave the house and I asked how many kilometers to Morong. “About 5kilometers” , he said. Hmmm bitin but perfect! From there, we can go to Cardona and meet Rhea.
2 dog-chasing experience….First one was practically an inch from my legs. (I guess that was a quickly answered prayer when I said “Lord, my legs”., the dog stopped barking). For the second one, I just ran faster!
And several greeters on the road, these are my favorites:
- “Pahinga ka muna” – farmers along the boundary of Lagundi-Calero
- “Go, go, go”
- “Uy, nag-jogging”….Other person, “hindi, tumatakbo”
- ‘Nasan mga kalaban mo?” Me-“Ako po nauuna”
- and the best – “Uy, di ba anak ka ni Benny”…Me: “ah, opo” “Oh, sa Mayo ha”….Can they campaign on Sunday? lol
Total distance logged was about nine kilometers. It was short of my planned distance but the breakfast prepared by Tita Cora was waiting. It was 9:30 when we left Rhea’s place…Run back?
Rode the jeepney and a tricycle back to Baras —- wohooo!!!
I guess I’ll see this road again on May 2!
