Motivation

Just like when we were still in the school or college, when it is time for a big exam, we would already be thinking of the reward that we would like to ask from our parents if we pass the exam with flying colors. Let it be a snack plate treat at KFC (how fortunate kids nowadays who are treated at KFC or McD every weekends by their lazy-to-cook wealthy parents), or a new pair of Pallas Jazz shoes to replace the ones with holes here and there, or anything a kid would like to have.

It surely will be a good source of motivation to study harder, and to do the best in the exam so that we can get what we wanted – free of charge. What it takes was just the effort to burn the midnight oil and reduce the hours sitting in front of the telly, trying to memorize every sentences and formulas in the text books. Not an easy task to be done by a kid, not even by adults.

Same goes for my maiden full marathon run, coming this June 28th. I need a source of motivation to keep me strong to keep on going with the very demanding training regime and be ready at the starting line. Something really strong. Something I’d like to have with the success of crossing the finishing line after the torturous running and walking effort for 42km. Finishing it injury free will be an added bonus.

This is what I reaaaaallly want. Though, it won’t be free of charge, and of course I won’t ask this from my parents.

No. I don’t want to be like them. I just want to watch them at movie theatre. That’s all.

For other movies, I can live with watching them on DVD. But for this particular one, it’s a must-watch-at-a-movie-theatre for me, once at least. (I watched the earlier Transformers twice!) Hehehe.

So, what is your motivation?

Nik, watch the movie before the race, but get yourself a new pair of running shoes or watch etc (fill in your desires here) as a reward for all the hard work you have done.

BTW, Transformers is the greatest action movie of all time.

No, i don't want to watch it before marathon, afraid i will suddenly "kik kuk kuk kuk kuk kuk" and transformed into a bullet train at 20km mark (and get disqualified).. hehehehe.

Save the best for last...
