An epic journey will be embarked by a dear someone.
His first full marathon. Almost a year after he did his first half-marathon.
He did his final LSD with a 20K run. His longest run this year. It is under-training to do a full marathon but I have faith in him. For one, I do know that he can walk (if not run) for hours. I've been dragged along by him when we were on vacation for hours and hours before. From 7am till 7pm and he's still OK to continue on! @.@
Anyway, he planned to walk if he can't run. No matter what people will say, I think it is a sensible plan for him. We've checked his walking pace and his brisk walk is around 9-10min pace. Not bad, what.
His total mileage last week (run+walk) was almost 70K and that's more than what I used to do training for Malaysia Women Marathon!
We went to The Marathon Shop after our morning walk to pick up my race kit and also a friend's.
The race kit, runner's guide (I read them. Do you? ^^), two discount vouchers and a postcard! Bought two GU Chomps (I miss Stinger gel!) and a Hammer solids.
We discussed about hubby's need of gel/chews intake for the marathon and based on my own experience and his; he'll probably just take along a gel and a packet of Chomps on top of stopping at all the water stations during the run. I survived on half a packet of Stinger Gel on April. ^^
Noticed this counter after collecting our race kits. A registration counter for runners' cheer crew! Cool!
Cooler that registered cheer crews receive that VW board to write motivational signs for the runners, they will also receive a cap and a tee on race day!
Plus a toy too (twist helicopter thingy). I already know what to write on my board but it's a secret! Hehehe
It's just a week to River Jungle Marathon 2013! All the best to all running in it.
All the best to those running tomorrow at Borneo International Marathon too!
