The story of marathons

Every single time I wave him off to the start line . . .

Go

close up 1

I trust that he knows when to stop, I trust that he knows his limit, his ability, his strength. I trust that he knows he can give up and still came back as my hero. I trust him. More than I trust myself not to cry, apparently.

He did good. Great, in fact. A new Personal Best of 3:34:11. That's awesome timing, right? :))


We are so proud of him. Really. You have no idea, I feel like my heart is gonna burst out of my chest when I heard his timing. He trained hard for this. :) My biggest regret that day - not being there for him at the finish line. But it's okay, there will be other races.


But I completed what I think will be my last 10k for a while *don't ask what's my timing- LOL*. Not because I'm upgrading myself to 21k or anything like that. I'm just resting from races, not pregnant or anything like that either. Two photos above courtesy of an awesome photographer friend, Tey Eng Tiong. He stood in the sun for hours, just to capture photos of friends! Thank you Tey, you're amazing.


We went home happy. Sweaty and many shades of brown. But happy. And already looking forward to next event where I'm playing my favorite role - photographer. :)
