I remembered the first time I joined in 4K Fun Marathon this year 2017, we registered in the last minute before the registration closed. It was a lot of fun and excitement. I couldn’t believe that my first experience in participating with this kind of fun marathon is in Dubai.
It was a long time ago since I desire to join such fun run from my home country in the Philippines , but I wasn’t able to participate. I couldn’t get a chance because it was either no one is interested to join with me (of course it is more fun if you will run with friends, colleagues or family) or I am busy.
When the day of the Marathon came, We arrived early at the starting point venue. I was very excited at the same time I was nervous. I was excited because from the very beginning the reason why we wanted to join was just to have fun and get the medal award given to all participants after they finished the race and reached the finished goal and then just took photos and show with friends…hahah . On the other hand I was nervous because during that time, I was not feeling well, and my body was feeling weak, prior to that I went to the gym once a week and jogging 3 times in a week.. But since I long for it to experience and the chance is here now in front of me even if somehow I wanted to back out but I never did and still joined and finished the run and got the medal and took photos. :)Apologized for not so clear photos. 🙂
Wondering why I posted this so late? Well it’s because I just started blogging and I learned that the registration for Dubai Standard Chartered Marathon 2018 has already been started. It is held every year. We might join again in this fun run and I will make a fresh update about it. 🙂 If you are interested to participate you can visit their website or click here to register online.
