Runner In Pain!

I’m nervous, excited and elated with the way my 4 Days Holy Run turns out to be one of the most challenging events  in my entire career as a runner.

Nervous because this will be my first time to do such feat, a 262 kilometers in 4 days.

Excited because I will do it for a worthy Cause and I will run 4 ultraMarathons in 4 days. (three 70K and a 52K on the last day)

Elated with the way friends and new friends support this ‘Run for the Chosen Children Foundation.’ To all of you, this blogsite will always remember your good deeds.

As I said on my previous posts, whatever amount that can be collected, whether it’s only a P100 from a good donor, it will be handed to that Foundation. The amount is irrelevant here, what matters most is the condition of the heart being a cheerful giver! It turns out that donors poured in and I have now more than a hundred pesos to give courtesy of those donors. (I will post the total amount on or before April 6, 2010, when I will surrender the proceeds to that Foundation.)

Aside from money…I will be sharing my ‘PAIN’ to those blessed children. By running/walking a 262 kilometers against all odds and elements, PAIN will always be my constant companion. It will be a gargantuan task but I’m glad to do it and will do it again if time permits.

Two days to go and I’m off to a distant land, an uncharted territory, out of my comfort zone. This is not a race against time but against human will. Survival against extreme conditions, heat and agonizing pain.

Lord, help me finish this one for this will be a personal triumph not only for me or to those donors and sponsors, but most specially-to those CHOSEN CHILDREN- for they are always in PAIN, and I’m glad to be a partaker of their experiences, at least for this Run for a Cause.

To God be the Glory!
