Okay so he can't move today and is paining all over but what a great achievement!


  1. How did it go with him ?
    I've done my first 42Km last November and I must say it's was an unforgettable experience....

    1. Thank you for asking he did great, finished in 4.07.58 he can't move today though.

    2. Bravo to you too. I take my hat off to all marathoners.

    3. Thank you so much. This is kind of you...
      Such a great timing ! (Mashallah) ... He was aiming less than 5 hours and finished in a bit more than 4... Yea it will take like 3 days for him to start walking normally again.. Don't worry it's all part of the experience :) .. Check this video out "The day after the marathon"

    4. Yes, he was chuffed to bits. Oh bless him - the video is agonosing just to watch let alone suffer through. Absolutely big-hearted sweethearts with lots of courage and guts. Thanks for sharing x


Always great to hear from you :O)
