Irena Pavlović (1976) Jaka i dobra / Strong and good

25 Apr , 2019  

Nije bilo prvi put da učestvujem na tribinama  gde neko oduševljeno govori o nečemu što volim. Sve jedno da li je u pitanju ronjenje, planinarenje ili trčanje, nekako mi je uvek previše kada postoje samo superlativi. Te večeri su o trčanju su pričali kao o aktivnosti koja rešava sve. Dopao mi se pristup, ali pošto i sam trčim znao sam da preteruju. Možda bi tako i ostalo da Irena, koja nas je pozvala te večeri, nije istrčala maraton sa potpuno slepim čovekom. Naše novine su, kao i uvek, površno pisale o događaju. Prosto, kod sve mora da bude od neverovatnog do skandaloznog, Čini se da tako da propuštamo suštinu. U slučaju slepog maratonca, sem očiglednog uspeha, postoji mnogo značajnija priča o ženi, koja je zapravo sve inicirala. Uvek oni koji nešto započnu bivaju u pozadini. Da to ne bi bilo tako i ovoga puta, poželeo sam da u svojoj kolumni na telegraf.rs objavim intervju sa Irenom Pavlović. Nekako istovremeno mi se činilo da  čak ni to nije dovoljno, pa evo kratkog uvoda i na mom blogu, jer činjenica da nje nije bilo, ne bilo ništa od ovoga. Marko, koji je slep je rekao da je lepa, verovatno koristeći šesto čulo koji ima svaki slepi čovek. I nije pogrešio. Ono što nije rekao, a verovatno je osetio, je da je imao sreću da sretne nekoga ko je tako  jak i nadasve dobar. Ja sada znam da Irena nije bila tako jaka, već  da je to naučila, ali i da je bila je oduvek dobra. Drago mi je što sam te večeri slušao o trčanju, jer trčanje očigledno može da promeni mnogo.

It was not the first time that I watched the show where someone excitedly talked about something I love. it doesn’t matter is it about diving, hiking or running, it is always too much when they speak in superlatives. That evening they talked about running as an activity that solves everything. I liked the approach, but since I was running, I also knew they were exaggerating. Perhaps it would be the case, that Irena, who invited us that evening, did not run a marathon with a completely blind man. Our newspapers, as always, superficially reported about the event. It is pretty not normal that everything has to be from incredible to scandalous since we lose the essence. In the case of a blind marathon runner, there is a much more important story about a woman who actually initiated everything. Always those who start something are in the background. If that were not the case this time, I wanted to publish an interview with Irena Pavlovic in my column on telegraf.rs. And in the same time, it seemed to me that that was not enough, and here’s a short story to my blog, because the fact that she was not there,  nothing wouldn’t happen. Marko, who was blind, said she is pretty, probably using the sixth sense that every blind man has. He did not make a mistake, but what he did not say, but he probably felt, was that he was lucky to meet someone who was so strong and above all good. Now, I know that Irena was not so strong, she learned it, but she was always good. I am glad that I listened about running that evening because running can obviously change a lot.
