so, i did it! i ran a 10k race for the first time ever! this is a huuuuge milestone for me! thank you nyoman, for pushing me to register for this event! didn’t think i could do it, but i did! 😀
it wasn’t a fast running time — i did it in 1:12:54 (according to the official time-chip)… but not too bad for a beginner, right? my personal goal was to do the whole 10k run without any walking. i have achieved the goal and i’m very happy — as you can see the big smile in the picture above, hee hee.
aina made this cute little flag to cheer me during my run… it has drawings of Puni and Miru (my stuffed pandas) in their “running clothes” (according to aina). i loooove it!
we all had to wake up really early in the morning, which is something that all of us don’t do. ari, aina and i are night-owls.
but both aina and ari supported me all the way… waking up early, accompanying me to the venue, waiting and cheering for me on the sideline… i’m so blessed to have them as a family 🙂
while waiting for me to finish the run, aina wanted to do what her mom were doing… so she also ran back and forth in front of esplanade, pretending she’s doing the marathon.
since i started training for the marathon, aina has been expressing interests in running… i guess that’s what children do; they want to do what the parents do. today, she saw kids wearing the kids dash uniform, and has been asking if she can join them.
so, hopefully, i can do the marathon again next year and aina can join the kids dash. and she can do things that her mom does 🙂
