we are a walking nation

Last Sunday we had the Standard Chartered international marathon where yours truly participated in the 21 km race clocking a personal best of 3:10:43.

    Cool! Great for your health, and walking or running that’s quite a distance. Most my legs have taken me in one shot has been about 14K.

    I prefer walking my dogs


  3. Awesome, my in shape brother. I once ran 2K in under 4 minutes when christians caught me poisoning one of their wells and chased after me. They had torches and pitch forks with ’em, too. It was like a scene out of “Bride of Frankenstein.”

    Good for you! My son has run in several half marathons. I know the preparation and stamina it takes. I don’t walk as much as I used to, but try to do a bit everyday.


  5. Good luck, friend, with future marathons. I’ve never done any. Stuck to backpacking 10–20 miles a day. Much easier 😀

    Brilliant, Noel. That is quite an achievement, and an even greater goal to double it. More power to your brave intentions. Hats off to you!

    And not only that, isn’t the weather heating up in your neck of the woods. Phew!

    I run to the bathroom every morning, I’m really rather proud of that – as for numbers, it’s always either 1 or 2 – sometimes both.

    Congratulations and well done! I love walking, hiking, cycling…anything but running…which unless being chased by something wishing to kill and eat me I refuse to do. 😀

    Oh, my. The farthest of managed is a 5K, though at one point I did start training for an 8K. Then I got derailed. Now I just do a route march with my dogs at least twice a day.

    Congratulations and good luck on doubling it!

    Well done Mak. I’ll just watch you. Enough exercise for me thanks. hahahaha! Great shots! 😀

    Looks like you had fun! It’s good to do something different than your daily routines and by the way it’s good to see all is going well with you. I wish I had more time to read your blog… but no matter how much absent I am I always come back 😉
