To give up means to loose everything…


DNF. What is this three letter word? What does it mean to a runner like me.  Is it really such a big deal for other runners to accept it?

DNF. Did Not Finish.  Yes, I have to admit that I just encountered this.  I don’t know if I have already exerted my full potential or I was too dim-witted at that moment and I just played around the whole time that’s why these three letters are already in my face.  I just can’t believe it happened…

I am frustrated.  I feel so weak. I feel like I am just a small and mere little boat floating in a wide ocean…. without a sail (haha! drama!)… Everything flashes in my mind when I saw the finishers. I kept asking myself how come I was not able to finish it.  What are our loopholes? Is it just they are fortunate and too persistent while we are not?

Well…. It’s not right to sourgrape… This will be enough…  All I can say for now is, next time… We’re going to finish it.

See you next year!

  1. too bad…pero sabi nga sa buhay coke jingle…kung manalo eh di masaya, kung matalo may next time pa, pag nadapa bangon lang, pag may tumawa bow na lang…ganyan talaga ang buhay, kaya mag-smile araw-araw…pansin ko lang, layo ng tingin mo rodel!

  2. Yup, Argow. We will conquer it next time. I assure you.

    Masakit talaga ang tatlong letra na yan. Lalo na para sa ating mga mananakbo. Ngunit, dito tayo huhugot ng lakas sa susunod.
