Missing That Feeling..!!


I think it's the longest break I've taken from an official running event since I've properly started running in 2018. Today while discussing with a friend, I ended up re-living my running sundays in my mind. Then just for few moments (I had to do it), I got up and just admired these medals and got back to work.


Missing collecting more of these..!!


Let's see what all I can add to the list for the moments that are missing in my life because of Corona. Lemme start:


I'm missing...

  • That feeling of booking flight tickets and hotel accomodation three months in advance to travel for the run

  • That feeling of collecting and keeping all running gear up front in the evening as you have to go for a run next morning

  • That feeling of cursing myself when I put an alarm for 3 in the morning to wake up

  • That feeling of cursing myself when I had to wake up and leave the bed at 3 in the morning as I had to go for a run

  • That feeling of finally getting a good bowel movement at such an odd hour of the morning

  • That feeling of morning hour rush to book the cab 4 in the morning to reach the start point of the run on time

  • That feeling of running next to thousands of people (although not being much of a social person) for 2-3 hours

  • That feeling of starting the run in the dark and then witnessing the amazing sunrise near the beach or random beautiful terrains

  • That feeling of getting bucked-up by random unknown strangers when I slow down during the run

  • That feeling of me bucking-up random unknown stranger who stopped feeling low during the run

  • That feeling of cursing myself as I forgot to miss the signal from my body and ended up getting a cramp

  • That feeling of cursing the organizers for charting out the course with a steep climb towards the end of the marathon

  • That feeling of seeing the people cheering you on the road in morning and telling white lies on your face just to make you happy (they will be saying something like only 2km left, come-on you can do it, even when 5km were left)

  • That feeling of rejuvination on seeing young kids and old people running long distances next to you

  • That feeling of pure joy, happiness, blissfulness or maybe can't be described in words as it is too serene, when you see the finish in your line of sight

  • That feeling of crossing the finish line

  • That feeling of receiving the finisher medal at the finish line

  • That feeling of lying relaxed and happy and half dead on earth at the finish line

  • That feeling of deciding to come back again next year for the same run by waking up at 3am, even though I have cursed myself million times since morning for waking up early

  • That feeling of clicking the selfie with medal with your buddy (mostly in the pics, you'll find that it is the same guy, Ayush, who convinced me to take up this as a hobby)

  • That feeling of stopping on the way for a delicious breakfast (I'm not a big fan of breakfast which I get at finish line)

  • That feeling of reaching home (acting that you're not) limping as there is a bit of soreness in your muscles

  • That feeling of grabbing a beer with your buddy to celebrate another finishers medal on the wall

  • That feeling of finally retiring to the bed with a happy and satisfied and worthy state of mind

PS: Little nostalgic and overwhelmed at the moment 😁, so won't say much now, but feel free to add more such points in the comments, if you have something in mind.
