8:44 a.m., a moment that nobody can ever take away from her!

Here is a sequence of photos I found while going through some of the pictures online of this past Sunday's Standard Chartered Bangkok Marathon.
I'll let the photos speak for themselves, but I'll give a tiny bit of race background based on the photos.
The woman, age between 50-59, is just crossing the finish line of the Full Marathon distance of 42.195 kilometers. Her finish time was 5hrs 44mins.
The man, I'm assuming her son, finished the 10km run and was waiting for her near the finish line.
Finishing a marathon...it's an emotional thing.

The woman is a machine. What a proud moment for her and her son. I am looking forward to seeing some pictures of You and Eric. Are you planning on running any more races this year? Hi to Pae. Love always, Auntie

Auntie, not sure if we'll run anymore this year as far as races go. There is the Thailand International Half Marathon (2nd) on Dec 16th, but we're not likely to run it again this year. I will be participating in another marathon distance "run" though. It's called the Banana2U Marathon and is 43.5km and goes between two of Thailand's top universities, point to point. It's gonna be a group marathon run at between 6:30-7:00 per kilometer pace. No race, no medals, no time keeping...just getting out and running a marathon with other runners, together, no competition ;) It'll serve as training for February's 50km trail run up in the Khao Yai hills. Love ya, Chris!
