It’s pretty damn obvious:

I’m behind Luis Suarez. All the way.

Not just cos’ he’s my favourite player (Alvin can attest that honor comes once in a blue moon)

But it also signifies the importance of family, support, and forgiveness.

The more they crucify and stand against you, the more we’ll guard, protect and care for you

Nunca te camina solo Luis Suarez

You’ll Never Walk Alone Luis.

It’s been awhile

Things have changed for the better, though its been really tiring. For some reason energy seems to sap REALLY quickly.

Yet things are on the way to become better. 2011 has been a challenging year, yet a breakthrough year in some aspects.

For the first time I’ve thrown off the stigma of living up to everybody’s expectations. And to also have courage.

The rhema: Joshua 1:8-9

Courage, Law, Redemption.

And the chance encounter with an old SOT classmate, she reminded me of the power of visualisation, of words, of speaking to the future.

Yeah, it did work before at the last marathon didn’t it? Kept confessing it’ll be the fastest yet, came to pass.

Torres was lost. But Suarez came.

Exams crashed big time, yet the 1st class remains reachable.

Family didn’t respond, yet one step closer.

Friends didn’t respond, but they’re open to me.

I still believe, 2012 WILL be the best year yet.

P.S And my little prayer lord?

Straight As this year, a valuable internship with no lack of finances, a trophy or two for LFC. Suarez’s name to be cleared(and to meet him face to face). Sister & mum to get saved. CG to grow 2-3fold. Personal capacity to expand and touch many, many more lives.

And for the first time, I want to share my space with that special girl.

Between you and me, let it be the year.

Nothing beats the joy of finding your limit. And then pushing it

Had a great run with Wanli & Alvin for the full marathon. Even though we started 40 minutes late cos of organisers’ screw up over logistics.

Turned out that all of us had to do a running battle against 70+% of the runners trying to get ahead of them!! Hit my personal Best of 4 hours 42 minutes. A good way to end the year well after earlier disappointment in the 100km.

I’ve run non-stop for 3 years now. Distance clocked minus training is 6 full marathons, 1 half and 60km completed in the 100km challenge. Which means I’ve covered 8 marathon distances in 3 years (334KM)

And I’m feeling the effect on my knees, with the worrying propensity to vomit after 30km, my body is giving lots of warning signs to slow down. So I’ve decided to take a break for a year, I’ll be back in 2013!!!

Not to worry, I’ll be open to help anyone wanting to train for a full marathon. After all, all the experience accumulated must be put to good use right?? After this is a physical gift given to me by God to use and develop

And yes, won a major battle with my mind after struggling for so long.

No longer do I have to live up to anyone’s standards, because even God doesn’t have one

No longer do I punish or diminish my self-esteem because I didn’t meet someone’s perceived standards. I’m free!! =)

Feels good to just smile to myself, and smile without a reason
