The Dragon Has Come Home

The Game of Thrones TV series has sadly ended a couple of weeks ago. Not everyone was happy with how the whole season 8 was handled (or maybe even previous seasons as well?). I personally wasn’t satisfied with a lot of parts. I liked episode 2, it was the calm before the storm so to speak, but the rest? I wish the story and character development didn’t feel so rushed. My near-sightedness didn’t allow me to see sh*t during the winter war. Ghost deserved more pets! I have so many “what happened to…” questions! Alas, it is what it is, and I can only hope GMMR gets to finish the book series and wrap everything up better.

It’s not like I’m expecting a happy ending. You remember what Ramsay Bolton once said to Theon Greyjoy, right?

“If you think this has a happy ending, you haven’t been paying attention.” – Ramsay Bolton, GoT season 3, episode 6

But this post is not about my thoughts on the last season of GoT! This is about a virtual run inspired by Game of Thrones. Particularly dragons!

GoRun.PH held a run from April 15 to May 15 called “Game of Trot“. I really was digging the entitlements and I was able to join the run thanks to a very generous friend (you know who you are 😉 ). This was a step up from the previous runs I’ve joined because I registered to the 100K run. ONE HUNDRED KILOMETERS.

I wasn’t sure about my choice but I wanted this, I registered to this, I should see it through to the end.

And I did. 😀

My progress as of May 14, 2019

Skoriot ñuhys zaldrīzesse ilzi?*

*High Valerian for “Where are my dragons?”

At this point, I don’t really care what happened to the dragons in the TV show. I just want my own dragons! And I want them to come home!

The entitlements took it’s time to get to me. I honestly got anxious because some of my friends got theirs a few days earlier than me, and I thought gorun got my mailing address wrong, the address on the courier tracker was incomplete and there were several villages nearby that had the same street name and village name. For a minute, I was absolutely panicking, BUT I finally got my dragons on the 31st of May!

I am sharing them here again. This post serves as a celebration of what my body can accomplish. And it accomplished a lot of kilometers last April and May.

One hundred kilometers for a month, baby! With my packed schedule, I still cannot believe I was able to finish the distance and even exceed it a bit. *beams with self pride*

I want to thank my very awesome and very vocal supporters/cheerers: Peter, Roma, Tina, Ton, and Ash & the family. A very, very special THANK YOU to my race sponsor. :mrgreen:

You guys rock! We all do. 🤘
