When I read the post about "My First Childhood Sport" (A contest organized by one of our Guardians @Adelan O), My mind went straight to when I was in Primary School. To participate in this contest, you can catapult yourself using this link to know more about it.
I attended my primary school in Lagos and I could remember it was our Inter house Sport day and we all have practiced for the D-Day. Then I had what they call Bowlegs (Thank God for today, no more Bowlegs but I think there is still a trace of it. Lol)
I went for running because I was told with my Bowlegs, I would be able to run but I used to be mocked then especially by my Uncle. He will say when I run, I am always turning like a car tyre and I will start crying.
Then, I used to take the second position in Blue House. Then, no one can compete with me in running with that magic bowlegs. Hehehe. But how come, I used to take second position? I don't know but there was this girl , she can run as fast as a deer while I will keep turning like a car tyre. Well, they didn't lie. Since my bowlegs can tell of it.
It got to a point, I stopped running because of shame. My bowlegs kept disgracing me. But who am I to question God? Though, my legs are normal now. All thanks to my parents and Aunt who took me to the hospital.
Running is an activity and an exercise. As a matter of fact, running is a good exercise and that is why it is considered as type of sports. There are different types of running which are;
The ones I have done were Long Run, Relay race and Marathon.
I don't think I can run now but I can still remember that moment. Thanks to Adelani who made me flashback to that moment. It's a memory itself.
Thanks for reading.
