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

2012年一個晚上,跑馬地衝完圈,成身汗瞓響地,朋友B提到波士頓馬拉松, 越聽越吸引… 「不如一齊去波馬!!」同年,大家達標了。在大阪終點睇睇錶,「喂,波士頓見呀!!」, 那一刻大家都有點眼泛淚光…

都未興奮完, 朋友C就問:「既然波馬都咁難得一齊跑, 其餘五隻唔係唔跑吓嘛!?」 我突然彈起大叫,「喂,World Marathon Major Hall of Fame 未有香港人呀!係就一齊上埋榜啦!」

就係咁,從2013 東京 到 2015 纽約,大家有試過忙到幾個月失哂蹤,甚至試過有傷患差d連完成都有困難。靠既都係互勵互勉… 先令大家一直去堅持…

堅持六大係要三個人一齊完成,Calvin 同 身在倫敦既B仔… 因為呢個六大,我地試過跑波士頓跑到要玩埋兩個星期三隻全馬,跑東京就要玩一日八餐做loading,跑完柏林就趕去踩單車跨過瑞士山…

跑完纽約指定要去扮洛奇,為左跑倫敦要跑到要俾四百大元一公里…
漫漫人生,總要有D你想天馬行空又肯同你堅持實踐既朋友!

One night in 2012, I lay down on the groud after a hard train session in Happy Valley circular track. My friend B introduced Boston Marathon to me and invited me to run Boston togther. I was absorbed by the story he told and trained hard for qualifying Boston.

At the time when we crossed the finish line of Osaka Marathon, when we realised that we succeeded and we nearly dropped tears.

Then, my friend C asked, “As we can run the hardest one, why don’t we finish the other five?” Then I checked the webiste and found that still no Hong Kong runners had finished all major marathons, “We can have chance to be honoured at the World Major Marathon Hall of Fame”

So, from 2013 Tokyo Marathon, to 2015 New York Marathon, all our time is for training, training and training, we had ups and downs, got injured, but we encouraged each other and overcame all challenge and negative thinking.

I finished all six races with Friend B & C. We did some crazy things together, like 3 marathons on 3 consective Weekend from Boston to Vancouver, 8 days full Carbo-loading for Tokyo Marathon, and cycling from Germany to Switzerland through Alps after Berlin Marathon.

We dressed up like Rocky after New York Marathon, Paid a lot for London Marathon charity bib(HK$400 per km)… I am glad that I found buddies who have brigthened up my life.
