Yesterday morning, I had a sudden urge to run, maybe because of the nice weather after the snow melting. Back in my country there are many running tracks (with soft rubber cover) in the city and everyone can use. I am also used to run on the 400-m track as it gives me motivations when I can count how many circles I ran. And the soft robber cover helps to protect my knees. Therefore the first thing poping up my head was the runing track behind TUE uni campus. However, I was like, okay, this is netherlands, everying was in an organized way, I should definitely check their website whether it is free to public.
It turns out that we have to pay the fee and become a membership to use them, (use them as part of the training course). I feel like sporting in the Netherlands was esclated to a very professional organized way. I feel suprised that there is no such free-to-go track just for public to use here.
Sometimes people just like the non-tring-attached freestyle sporting. I personally feel very stressful when it comes to joing a sport club, which probabaly means a lot of socializing (which i don’t like), and committment. Like I am right now in a table tennis club, and there are so many team meetings or cloud drinking activities. I don’t want it, sometimes I just wanna do some sports, as easy as that.
But I like the membership idea as a whole though. Finally I decided, fxck it, I will just jog around the park next my house.
