How did I become a trail running ambassador? It started two years ago on a July day…
That evening there were only five of us staying by the fire at the small clearing of Pipis Hill, in the Mátra. Three eleven-year-old boys, Laura and myself. The others were very exhausted by the expedition, so they went to sleep after our usual closing circle. And we began to weave a fairy tale, and as we passed the sentences to each other, the story of a 36-headed dragon, each with a special ability, evolved.
In the moonlight shining on the leaves, amidst the quiet sounds of the evening forest, in the light of the twinkling campfire, our little dragon was almost alive to us.
For those few minutes, the pains of the past and the threats of the future ceased, only the tale existed. And the boys could be who they were: simply, just kids. For a moment they might have forgotten that their parents left them; and the many ordeals they endured while they were with their foster parents. For those few minutes, only our special dragon existed, with all the desired super-abilities of three state-groomed boys …
I don’t really like running. And why am I doing it now? Because even if even one single abandoned child can experience something similar to what these boys experienced, it’s worth it.
