4h29’30” it took us, V and myself, to run the Dubai Standard Chartered Marathon.
V raised the idea to run the marathon, queen of all runs, about two months ago. I love a goo challenge so we eagerly subscribed ourselves.
Because of lack of time (training for a marathon just takes too much time) and a bunch of other lame excuses we nearly didn’t train.
Friday everything ran smoothly: misty weather –so thankfully not too hot the first part of the course-, we had ‘good legs’ and I had a motivated partner to pep me up. We ran the whole marathon (not even walked once) and are pretty proud of our time.
To all the other marathon runners a genuine sorry: we laughed with your clothes, the color of your running shoes, the way you run, your coiffure,… there was no other way, as we would never have finished without having a laugh with all of you.
A genuinely amazing experience! Burj Khalifa was sitting by and approved our performance.
After reaching the finish line I finally took the time to draw the names of the winners of the Petit Pan GiveAway. Congratulations to Storm & Co and Het Meisje van de Zeppelinfabriek, you both won two meters of Petit Pan fabric.
And in the flush of victory we launch another fabric GiveAway; two packages with each 2 meters of Michael Miller’s Little Chef fabric.
Thank you Tahir!
