hello you! welcome to my wee blog!

numbers/the madness of running long distance

with 9 comments

photo taken by my awesome brother who came to support us at 6am in the morning!

My 1st Singapore marathon and 1st night marathon.

My 2nd marathon ever.

My 3rd year of distance running.

My 4th medal.

Now to ask myself – what next?

And for the record, 42.195km in 6h, 10 mins, 50 secs. Not the best timing (first time was 5h, 50 mins) but I’m pretty darn proud of myself and erfen for finishing it even though we did not manage to train – the decision to run was literally made one week before! But they always say you need a streak of madness to run long-distance! My friends, including sherms and melly ran the 10K as well! So proud of everyone!
