Last March 3, 2009, I attended Coach Guy and Tricia’s wedding. Coach Guy was my College swimming coach at De La Salle University and also my professor in one of my major class. Tricia and me met through common friends in Triathlon community. For years me and my other teammates want Coach Guy to find someone who can make him feel better, so he can smile once in a while. Believe me, coach guy never smile, even when he crack some jokes(his own jokes, can you believe that!). No reaction at all! Except when my teammates and I screw up in training or in competitions, anger is the only reaction we saw.
Well, three years ago I introduced them to one another hoping cupid can do something. Coach Guy is smart, athletic (represented Philippine in Soul Olympics 1988 and he also Swam for Berkeley University) and he is a SERIOURS guy. Tricia is smart, athletic and BUBBLY… notice the difference. But nothing happened..oh…well.They wasted 3 years together.hahaha…Eventually last year when I casually introduced then to one another again something click…OH YES!..Everything is history. AT LAST!! My persistence pays off. Congratulation again guys…really happy for you. Can’t we to see Coach Guy do a triathlon race.
Two and half weeks ago, I was limping in the outside lane in the run track with Rebekah while everybody is running …Patience, patience….I’ll get my shot to run again, that’s all I think about that time! When I left Subic to go back to Manila for Coach Guy and Tricia’s wedding, I can’t wait to go back to Subic and run again, during my two and half days in Manila, oh man…my feet was so itchy to run…but I didn’t because the boss gave me a strict order not too. I left Subic at Sunday afternoon then Wednesday morning I caught one of the earliest bus to go back to Subic. I was all smile when I joined the group during the run session…AT LAST! I was running properly again without an aching knee.
AT LAST…. 70.3 Singapore here I come!
