“You are not achieving anything if it is not hard enough for you.” Drumming this into my head as I was running my third mile, huffing and puffing, but a stark improvement since last time.

The skies were in the perfect blue hue, the temperature was not too hot, it was the day for running. I let my mind sprint through the solitude that provided a space for my thoughts to reflect.

19 was the year when I started to have the conscience about my overall appearance, especially my physique. Before that, I could not even slow jog for 5 minutes without my lungs failing me, I felt terrible and looked terrible. I could no longer stand the feeling of being physically inactive for the most part in my 19 years of life.

Therefore, I made the decision to overturn my messed up lifestyle into a long term commitment. The evolution of my love-hate relationship- stress is doing something you hate repeatedly; passion is doing something you love repeatedly, began the day I made this decision.

I was literally running away from my responsibilities; the troubles in reality was thrown to the back of my head as I was stepping towards my next milestone.

Despite of my busy schedule as a student, running is always on my priority list and there will be at least a day which was allocated for my stress remedy.

The sight of the man in his mid fifties running past me will never get old. It was also one of the catalysts for my addiction in running. Besides the commonly known health benefits, I would always ask myself, do I want to sit on a wheelchair or running as swiftly as this man is when I am in my mid fifties?

Which one would you rather be?

I snapped back to reality when I reached the fifth mile. My breath still allowed me to continue, I did so, and more thoughts were reflected.


Here is Kelvin’s draft:

  • Stress is doing something you hate repeatedly; passion is doing something you love repeatedly.
  • The evolution of my love-hate relationship began the day i made the decision
  • The decision to overturn my messed up lifestyle into a long term commitment
  • I could no longer stand the feeling of being physically inactive for the most part in my 19 years of life.
  • I felt terrible and I looked terrible.
  • I could not even slow jog for 5 minutes without my lungs failing me.
  • “You are not achieving anything if it is not hard enough for you” was one of the quotes that kept me going.
  • I was literally running away from my responsibilities; the troubles in reality was thrown to the back of my head as I was stepping towards my next milestone.
  • The feeling of solitude during the run and the satisfaction upon achieving a goal distance is absolutely one of a kind.
  • Despite my busy schedule as a student, running is always on my priority list and there will be at least a day which was allocated for my stress remedy.
  • The sight of the man in his mid fifties running past me will never get old.
  • It was also one of the catalysts for my addiction in running.
  • Besides the commonly known health benefits, I would always ask myself, do I want to sit on a wheelchair or running as swiftly as this man is when I am in my mid fifties?
