A long, hard hike
    2016-04-27  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    “Hiking, from Zhuhai to Zhongshan, 55 kilometers. Wow, that’s awesome. I want to do it!”

    When I decided to do the hike, I began to dream about the fulfillment I would get from this trip.

    At 9 p.m., more than 3,000 people set off for the same destination. At the beginning, everyone was in high spirits, chatting and laughing while walking.

    Some people walked so fast that others said: “Look, their feet must have motors!”

    A boy who walked with his parents said, “I will arrive at the destination no matter what.” Everyone believed that they could achieve their goal.

    I walked with three women who prepared well for this trip. One of them had taken part in the activity twice. This gave me tremendous confidence that I could finish the trip with them.

    There is a saying: “The dream is a beautiful woman, but reality is a skeleton.”

    One of May’s shoes was broken, but there was no where to buy a new pair. We tied it together with a shoelace.

    “Lets keep this shoe forever after we’re done. It’s a special souvenir!” I said.

    May got hurt and had to give up. Her friends went with her to the service station.

    “Should I go with her?” I asked myself. Then it began to rain.

    “You four take a taxi to the service station,” said Xing, the leader of our team.

    “No, I don’t want to give up. We’re only half way there,” I said.

    The other three left. I stayed.

    We kept going after the rain stopped.

    “We’ve fallen behind,” Xing said. “Should we run to catch up?”

    “What? Run?!” I was shocked. But the rest of the team was far ahead, so I agreed. “Okay, I’ll try.”

    When we reached a service station, we found that many people were giving up.

    “This trip is much harder than I thought,” said one man.

    “What about you?” Xing asked. “Do you want to give up?”

    “No. Once I’ve made up my mind, I’ll stick to it. Otherwise, I will regret it,” I said.

    It was 6 a.m., but we were still walking.

    “Where is the sunrise?” I thought.

    I stared at a reddish cloud. The sunrise wasn’t gorgeous, but I still smiled.

    A voice inside me said, “Keep moving.”

    When we arrived at the 38-kilometer mark, I thought I was about to reach my limit. My legs ached and I felt sick.

    “Can you walk faster?” Xing said.

    “No, this is my fastest pace. If you are in a hurry, you can go ahead,” I said.

    “But you don’t have any teammates,” Xing said.

    “Don’t worry about it. There are so many people around,” I said.

    “Fine. Take care and goodbye,” Xing said before walking away.

    Staying up all night and hardly eating anything, I felt like a leaking balloon.

    It’s easy to decide to do something, but hard work and perseverance are required to make it happen.

    I arrived at my destination and didn’t feel joy or a sense of achievement. I felt relief.
