31 years, 8 months later, I finally fulfilled my dream of finishing a marathon. Braving the notoriously wet and windy weather in August in Reykjavik, Iceland, I trudged wearily across the finishing line, with a time of 4hrs 38mins.
This accomplishment is dedicated to my loving wife, a logistic supremo navigating the course effortlessly to provide much needed replenishment both for the mind and my body.
Darling, you were never far from me in this 26mile journey.
And not forgetting my family in Singapore, where in my darkest moments, the thoughts of you all carried me further than I could imagine.
