The story of 100k and Mind Your Gap :)

  • We survived. He did it. 100k. I have a feeling this won't be his last Ultramarathon. He's doing great, already in Zurich right now, working.
  • Me, well, let's just say the next time I'm staying up all night will not be so soon. I'm still feeling it, no kidding. I feel like I'm 80 instead of 32. Yucks! I love sleeping so much it's ridiculous! LOL.
Some photos..


4.40pm June 25th.
  • Just as we arrived at the race venue. Yup, I have both girls with me all night long. Them and a family friend. At some point or the other, there were tantrums and tears. But for the most part, they behaved and they cheered everyone who came along - Come on! Come on guys, you're doing great. You're awesome! Keep it up! I am so proud of my girls.

10:31 pm June 25th.
  • 42 done, 58 to go.
  • I was telling myself (in my head) - what the hell is happening? why am I letting him do this? this is crazy!
  • But I saw his stubborn~ness determination and then I continued cheering him on.
  • At 60km, I think his injury caught up to him and he couldn't run anymore. I was thisclose to begging him to stop and let's just go home. Thisclose. But I said nothing, if he wanted to give up, he didn't show it. I continued driving along, and making pit stops every couple of kilometres, waiting until he passed us, then I drove ahead, and waited, and drove ahead and waited. I needed to be there for him.

8:55am June 26th
  • Finally. The end of a long night. At this moment, words failed me. I was just too proud of him.

I ♥ this photo, thank you Kak Su. Priceless.

I love you, you crazy man.
  • If you ask me now, I'll say I'll do it all over again. If he's running, I wanna be there. Nevermind that it will take me more than a week to recover from one sleepless night. Nevermind that my heart will, again, break into a million pieces when I see him in pain. Nevermind anything. I'll be there.
at this point

I wish I had been scrapbooking back when I was 32... I wouldn't have needed all those therapists...

Lal said...

Congrats to you hubby! I just LOVE that first page because that is how I feel about my 13 year old son these days. I don't think I'm his fave person because I'm trying to raise him w/rules and stuff, but I sure hope one day we can get past the eye rolling and that he will realize why I did what I did. Love all your pages though. You always make me want to create :)
