My Dubai Marathon Training Experience

I enjoy running because gives me a sense of being alive and stress free. I love it when I feel my heart beats after a long distance run. For 2 consecutive years now, I've joined Dubai Marathon trainings with my running buddy Cathy. With all my efforts given this year, our trainer said that with our running pace, we would probably finish the 42 km run in more than 5 1/2 hours (although he was pretty sure we'll end up running plus 1-2 hours).. Since there is no half Marathon available, he advised that we join the 10km run instead.

On our first year, Cathy and I finished the Dubai Marathon 2014 10km run in 1 hour and 20 something mins. 

I enjoyed the Dubai Marathon training program so much that I'm pretty sure that we'll still try the 42k next time.

And to top all the fun, there is a charity foundation that is supported after each run..
