I would usually bring a camera and take pictures when I run in new places. But I made an exception with the Hong Kong Marathon . I didn’t bring my camera with me while running the full marathon. I can’t afford to make a stop and take pictures. I would love to take pictures. There were a lot of runners who did take photos especially at the bridge. They would really stop and find a spot to take their photos. I envy them but the result of my full marathon might take a bitter ending if I would stop just to take pictures.
Quennie was at the finish area during the event. So while waiting, she was able to get a few photos on how the race went. Check out some Hong Kong Marathon photos at the finish area.
Even Starbucks was ready for the runners.
Hong Kong loves this marathon event. The posters and ads are all over the city.

In many of my races, I don’t get freebies because I finished a bit slow.

Timing Chips are collected at the end of the race. I thought,
I can bring you home. The chips, i mean.
There’s no better way to cool down after a long run than ice cream.
