My worst experience by Takumi O.
I will tell you about the worst experience of my life. It happened on October 6, 2010 when I was a first-year student in high school. My school held a marathon race and we had to run for 20 kilometers. I had to run hard because I was a member of the soccer club, and my coach is a physical education teacher and he told us that we had to do our best. It meant we had to run hard. I didn’t like the marathon because it was painful for me and it took a lot of time. In addition, one month before the marathon, we practiced a marathon in physical education class. It was a hot day. I slept well the day before, and I tried to do my best. First, I ran with my friends who were in a same club, but it was very hard and I told my friends that it was too hard for me to keep up with them and they left me. Then I started run alone. I ran and ran and ran. When I had run for 10 kilometers, I felt cold. I was puzzled because the day was very hot and I was running, so I had to feel hot. I was very tired, so I concentrated my running. Then I ran and ran again. When I awoke, I was in a hospital. A doctor told me that I had heatstroke and lost consciousness at the 17 kilometer point. I felt sick, and I was tied up because I began to act violently when I was carried into the hospital. I had to stay in hospital for three days, and avoid playing sports for two weeks. This was the worst experience of my life, and a marathon became my weak point from then.
