Afloat

           

is set to music… in 10… 9…8…7….5…4…3…

do you know what uphill running feels like?

It’s like running with a sack of rice stomping on your chest.

i don’t know why Manny Pacquiao does this —

 your muscles become their strongest

 but breathing here feels like being under a tank, pressed.

afloatPhoto by Myra Lambino, an aerial shot of the uphill trail on Griffith Park, Los Angeles, California, that world boxing champ  Manny Pacquiao runs every morning to prepare for the fight of the century with Floyd Mayweather,

   shot two days ago: 

To run the Manny Pacquiao uphill trail

is to fight gravity and all the forces of nature

To win the Manny Pacquiao trial

is to be the greatest fighter of the world, 

             fiercest Filipino  warrior
