Ready for the Marathon !!!!!

If somebody tells me three years ago that I would be running a marathon, I'd laugh really hard and say "are you kidding me?"

But here I am - tomorrow morning - on Feb 17th 2008 I'll be running the first marathon (the 2008 Hong Kong Standard Chartered Marathon) in my life!!!!!

One small clarification though - I'll be running the 10km race (i.e., not the full marathon) in the event. I know I know, it's only 1/4 of a full marathon, but I already felt like I am "writing a NEW page in my life"!!! (haha... making it sound so "grand"!!) ^o^

Anyways, wish me luck and we'll see how I do tomorrow!!!

Pre-race Preparation

My Runner number

The hand drawing picture that I am going to pin on the back of my running shirt. Obviously, I didn't draw this ;) But then why would I put this on my back then?

Well... here is your answer!!! (read the message)
Meaningful, isn't it??! I am going to carry this Chan Hei Lam little girl's hand drawing picture and run the full race together with her, spreading the message of green living!!! =D
I am really excited!!!

My "Battle Armor" tomorrow



Okay, that's it for now. My race starts at 5:40am tomorrow, so need to go to bed and get enough race!!! Wait for my good news tomorrow!!! YOSH!!!!

p.s. Julie, GOOD LUCK for your race too!!!! =D
