What a weekend!

We drove 5 hours up north to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on Saturday. This was after fetching Mr.Husband from the airport, he came in from Milan that morning. I love driving when they're sleeping in the car, it's so peaceful. *grins*

Checked in, and promptly set out again to Cyberjaya for the Energizer Night Race 2010. Mr.Husband was gonna run his first marathon. We took KLIA transit express train, very similar to the one we took in Gold Coast last year.



Of course, no train ride would be deemed complete without some kind of faces.



Finally, we reached the place of event.



Mr. Energizer and Nidhi. She was totally flirting with him. LOL.



Pay no attention to my sausage arms. Love that man.



Love. Do I really need to say anything else? I don't think so.



With Singapore Blade Runner. Did you notice his blade before reading this sentence? He's such an inspiration.



Then we waved him off. At this point, I can't breathe for a while. I was proud and scared at the same time.



The Porta Pumper reminds me of colorful beach huts. I'm random like that.

Then we hitched a ride on the buggy from a kind-hearted man. Thank you Mister, you saved me a blister or two. It was at least 95° and in that kind of heat the half a mile walk seemed crazy. This was after walking that length in that heat twice. I refused to do it again with the kids.



We had dinner at the clubhouse, then the kids entertained themselves at the Energizer booth while waiting for daddy to finish his 42km. Approx - 26.097 miles. It was not very comfortable. They didn't have a designated area for supporters. We were left fending for ourselves against the mozzies and spiders! Yikes!



And he made it. 4hrs 23.30.60 ~ 19th placing out of 122 in his age group. So proud of my Mr. Husband. So-damn-proud.

I know, I know.. I am gushing over my own husband. I know it's boring, but I can't help it. LOL. :) And I'm recording the marathon from my perspective because it seems he's taking forever to set up his own blog, maybe when he sees that I missed a lot of interesting stuff, he'll be nudged into the right direction. I have been telling him, it doesn't matter if no one reads your blog.. I will! And get what you remember on paper before you forget. Paper, doc.files.. whatever! Just get it somewhere :)

Scrappy news! I still have no kit, yet. I'm so sorry if you're here expecting a reveal. I have nothing to reveal yet. I'll be back soon with a layout!

Are you still here? Thank you for reading. *hugs*

What a great memory. You are a wonderful wife, clearly!!! What a lucky man he is, that Mr. Husband.

And you have such a beautiful family. Hope your kit comes SOON!

Christyn said...

Mr. Husband is a rock star...was I reading that correctly that he flew in from Milan(not a short flight I imagine) and ran a marathon the next day? so sorry your kit hasn't made it to you yet.

Awesome-ness!!! Such a GREAT time, too! I ran my 2nd 1/2 marathon (13.1 miles) last year in 2 hrs. 33 seconds. I'm fairly confident if I attempted the full marathon... as your husband did... it would take about 6 hours. LOL! Way too much training for me at this point in my life! ;-)

I'm sure it was one of the best & most rewarding experiences of his life... SO COOL!

ania said...

LOL! Loved the colorful shot of the toilets - the ones used by most festivals and stuff here in Norway are just boring and grey or green and u g l y :P Go Mr. Husband! :D
(and Kuala Lumpur, does it sound as exotic and exciting to you as it does to me? :P)

Vivi said...

Wow... glad to know you guys had fun in Penang! Congrats to your DH as well. He sure has a mega awesome energy!

Jen Gallacher said...

How did he feel afterwards? My dh is training for his 2nd, and I got all emotional watching him run his 1st. It's quite amazing that your hubby got off a plain and then ran so quickly afterwards!
