2013: Berlin
2014: Boston, Chicago
2015: Tokyo, London, New York

跑六大這個想法就一直有放在心裡,終於係2013年同兩位志同道合的跑友開始了第一隻柏林馬,沿路主要是民居同公路景色。

最難忘的是波馬! 在起跑區附近環顧四周都是勁人,一開始就跑落斜,通常都會比附近的參賽者帶快了,上坡又過彎,沿路公路景色,觀眾的歡呼聲、喝采聲、音樂混雜在一起、聲震如雷,跑過終點之後還發生恐怖襲擊…

六大馬拉松,每隻馬的景色同天氣也不一樣!

對我來講,跑六大不只於旅行觀光,完成六大是我跑步生涯的里程碑,要參加就要有好成績,又要承諾完成漫長的訓練!

六大的氣氛很好,可以近距離同當地跑者接觸,那種感染力很強,有很強的正能量! 「堅持、不易放棄」是我最大的得着!

起初我覺得六大是遙不可及的,但原來努力是可以達到的! 「六大」是我人生中永遠的『故事』。

To finish six Major Marathon has been my goal since a long time ago. The first one I challenged was Berlin which I ran with my friends. The scenery of the route was mainly residential area and some roads.

The most unforgettable one is Boston Marathon, runners around me were really fast. The first few km was downhill road and I followed the pacing of other fast runners. And then there was turns and uphill road, the landscape, cheering and music, all mixed together, as loud as thunder. That was 2014 when terrorist attack happened.

Six marathons have different characters and landscape. For me, that is more than a jounery, it is a landmark of my running life. I have trained a lot in order to run a good time.

The atmosphere of major marathons are great, you can run with other foreigners. You can feel the vivid power and influence of the race. I have learned how to be tough and push myself, not to give up.

To finish all six races supposingly was an unreachable goal for me, but I could do it by paying much effort. That is the most memorable experience in my life.
