Running a marathon has been in my mental bucket list for as long as I can remember. In September 2015, I finally bit the bullet and signed up for my first marathon for May 2016. I managed to rope my friends Becky, Heather and James into signing up and then the training began. I did the majority of my long training runs with Heather which helped me massively with motivation and speed! I enjoyed the majority of my training runs, however I can still vividly remember the pain of running 20 miles on the hottest day of the year and then going into work for a nightshift straight after with two fresh blisters on the soles of my feet.  Limping around work in pain and being beyond exhausted is anything but fun!  Training wasn't all bad- especially when it came to the carb loading and tapering ;) just kidding.

With all the training out the way, I took the train to Edinburgh and stayed in a lovely Airbnb with James, Precilla and Judy. I loved seeing the sights and I especially liked the tour of Edinburgh Castle. The deep fried mars bar was a pleasant surprise. I didn't have the guts to try haggis.

On the day of the marathon, I was very nervous and felt very queasy in the morning. Running the marathon wasn't as hard as I thought it would be - I think I did the right amount of training for my first marathon. Overall, it was a great success and I ended up completing my first marathon with a time of 4 hours and 9 minutes. To celebrate we all went to a pub and I had chicken and chips and a glass of red wine! Perfect.

Awesome course, crowd and atmosphere - was just a shame my knee gave in a few miles in so had to hobble!

Fantastic race, see a video from the organizer here:

Not one of my best days (perhaps due to the whisky tasting the day before?) but still a great experience. I had cramp in my calfs the last 18 kilometers and it was a lot of walking in the end. Still a final time of 4:38:32.

It was Terry Fox Marathon occured in HCMC. I was really excited to be one the people stream.

The feeling of reaching the finish line is wonderful, although it was a little bit tired since I had walked for like 3 hours
