Perth Marathon happened over the weekend and though I played a very small running part, as I was in a relay team and could only do the 5km leg, I had so much fun being in the cheer squad.
I had so much fun cheering for other people that 3 hours pass by just from me screaming and ringing the cow bells. I have to give credit to my friends Michelle, Ben and Didi for making the signs. They did an awesome job don't you think? Every time someone read the "Chafing the Dream" sign, they smile and laughed. I think some of them said that they were indeed chafing the dream. Eeek!
After cheering near the Narrows bridge, we made our way down to the finish line to cheer for the few that went over the 5 hours mark. I had marathon envy by the end of the race. I stayed back to have a chat with a couple of the newly crowned marathoners and I am so inspired by them all. It is in my bucket list to finish one and I am hoping that I will find the time to start training for one. One day, one day I will tick that off my bucket list.
