One September Morning

Friday, September 7, 2012

What better way to start the month than to spend some lovely time with a friend whom I haven’t seen for years? 

It was a beautiful Saturday morning, with that fresh, crisp air this time of the year brings.  The glaring sidewalks, host to the mundane concerns of every day, are atypically empty. The buildings loomed large and imposing, casting shadows on the streets but unable to dim the brightness of that day.  As I walked towards the coffee shop, with each step I could feel myself being lifted from the languor and listlessness I’ve sunk into.  And then I saw my friend seated under an umbrella in what looked like an oasis in the middle of a concrete jungle, sipping coffee and radiating that openness and ease of manner that I find endearing.  In that instant I felt that, despite everything, life is still good.

hehehe. i was actually aiming just the 3K... and in manila. sinimulan ko lang sa ganyang yaya para pag kinuwento ko kina mordsith and other friends: "i was actually ready to take the 10k challenge, kaso, di pwede si angeli sa gensan, and mukhang di pa SIYA prepared for a 10k run. so, sasamahan ko muna siya sa 5k."

hehehe. seriously though, i think a 5k in manila is a good start for us. well, actuallym for me. im sure ikaw e sandali kayang-kaya mo kahit 21k.
