This is a totally new experience for me, instead of being together with my family, I volunteer in the relay~
It was really cold on Saturday and I realized that I have stand for at least 3 hours in the chilly weather. I felt really bad in the beginning~
Faraz and I stood in one corner of Hyde Park to guide the runners~
Before it started, Faraz and I kept talking in order to ignore the coldness~
Once it began, I was totally attracted to the match.
You could find out so many people participate in this match regardless of age.
I was moved by their spirit. Most of them were not coming for the rewards and they just ran for fun. Winning the match was definitely the only motivation of the match and it was human spirit that inspired them.
We kept yelling to the runners: “Come on!” “Keep running!” “Excellent!”
Though we were frozen to death, our spirit was so high that I wondered maybe someday I would be one of the runners~
It was really a meaningful day for me~
I learned a lot, enjoyed a lot and met new friends~
