He did it!!!
Ran his first full-fledged Marathon at Boston. The Man trained really hard for this but the weather was a killer. The temperature suddenly peaked to 32 degrees Celsius on Race Day. I guess this temperature shouldn’t come as a surprise coming from Singapore where our temperatures can go up to 35 degrees Celsius on some days. But the Man was training in Geneva and was used to temperatures between 10 – 20 degrees, so this came as a rude shock to his system.
Nevertheless, he completed the race!!!!
Woo hoo B!!!! You the Star for completing the race!
Here’s my little encouragement card that I made for the Man. Noticed how I put a little paw-print at the side to symbolise that Sparky was also cheering him on as he ran the grueling race.
We went up to Boston with another friend who was running the same race with the Man, his wife and another 2 of their relatives. So while the men were running, us 4 were trying to get a good place to spot our men at the finishing line. Unfortunately, it was massive crowded close to the finish line. Try as we might, we simply couldn’t get a spot. In the end, we found a nice cool spot to view the race over at the 2nd level of Lord & Taylor. Hehe.
Here’s the shot of the finishers again! Congrats you guys for finishing the race!
Friend sent this over just the other day with the subject that read ‘Proof of War Hero – Most Battled’. Indeed!
