6:30AM – On a bright and early Sunday morning under overcast skies, 112 students and faculty travelled to downtown Victoria to participate in the TC 10K run. We were all very pumped for the race since we had such a massive group representing Pearson College. Streets of Downtown Victoria came alive with over 12 000 people getting ready to run and walk the 10 kilometres. It was such a sight to see people from all age groups, teams and demographics that had come to join the race. Some of the students in the college were not in the best shape to run, while others had physically and mentally prepared to finish the race before our director David Hawley. Since David had promised to pay a certain amount of money to the college for each person that beat him to the finish line.
It was 8:00 when I was standing in a wave of people with pink bibs, my heart was pumping and getting ready for the horn to blast. When it began, the streets of Victoria were flooded with people instead of cars. Along the run, supporters and different kind of bands were lined up on the sidewalk, and it definitely made the run more enjoyable. But the best moment had to be seeing the finish line ahead and having the commentator announce my name. It was such an amazing feeling of success. And then afterwards we were greeted by a hearty breakfast while meeting up with friends and enjoying the feeling of accomplishment. As a collective effort, we were all very successful since we earned the biggest team and fastest team which earned us $2,000. Next year hopefully we’ll have a bigger crowd of Pearson College members and additionally take home the best team spirit award. Go Pearson College!
