Sundown 42.195km - Achievement Unlocked
I just finished my first ever full marathon on 1st June! That's right, I joined the Sundown 42.195km Marathon and to be honest, it was really really tough and it requires a lot of determination and energy.
Okay... I admit I was the main culprit. I was the one that told my friends to join the full marathon cos #YOLO !!!
Initially, we really ran 6-10km daily. However, we were so busy where it reaches a point whereby I didn't even run for one whole week.
This basically summarize how I felt before, during and after the run!
We started the marathon on a high until the 20km mark! Still can take picture with the 20km sign. LOL!
But after that, I kept cursing and swearing. Every step was so painful. It's like I can't sit, squat or stop. I was like Fuck my Life and why did I sign up for this shit!
But we persevered and really appreciate my bros for encouraging me to push on. It requires a bit of insanity at some point to pull through this. Really a test of my endurance!
Every kilometer seems like eternity. I was so happy when I saw this 40km sign!
But it was a scam, it was definitely like 3km more before I reached the finishing point :(
One of the takeaway for this marathon. Beautiful isn't it?
I KOUP THIS PICTURE FROM THE WEBSITE. HAHA
Our timing sucks but I guess we get A+ for effort. It's about finishing the race, encouraging each other and have the NEVER SAY DIE spirit that is more instrumental isn't it?
Sorry for shag face! HAHA
YAY! WE DID IT!! #butfirstletustakeaselfie (I look so fair here for some reason, maybe pale?)
Before the race, when we were all still energetic.
And our loyal supporter!! :) Thanks Lilian for popping by to encourage us! :D
Kudos to the Sundown Committee for the organisation though there was lack of 100 plus at some hydration station. A selfie after finishing the race with my medal! Achievement unlocked and I'm really very happy that I made it out ALIVE! So shag I can barely feel my legs.
I was damn tired but yes! I DID IT!
Always remember, Mind over body!!
If I can complete this marathon, so can YOU! :)
