Running and Walking.

This has probably been the longest time I've ever went without updating this blog. Haha. And I'm leaving for camp tomorrow so I figured now would be as good a time as ever to update. I've been really really busy the past month or so. I mean, it's not like I ran a marathon or anything.

Oh wait I did run a marathon. Hahaha.
This is (a hastily shot picture of) my finisher medal. Proof.

 I totally ran the marathon just to be able to use that in a conversation. Hahaha. Anyways my timing was horrible, I alternated between running and walking most of the way, I suffered from knee joint pains for a week after the marathon, and I felt like dying towards the end of the marathon. But it wasn't that bad I think.

It wasn't as tiring as I expected it to be. Like, I was bracing myself for a terrible psychological battle to finish the race, but it was more like a small argument with my mind when I was running. Haha. I did feel like giving up towards the end though. Even though I was walking most of the way by then. But I still finished it. :) And one and a half hours before the 8 hour cut-off timing as well.

Wouldn't do it anytime soon again though. I think triathlons are more fun. At least that one don't have to run for so long!

Anyways, I've been really busy for the past month, besides running a marathon and all that. Thanks to some leaking pipes in the school's dark room, my module has been extended so I now need to continue going back to school even during the holidays. And I have a million and one photos to edit after shooting a million and one photos this month, and this is after two photography modules so I'm kind of sian with the whole photo-taking/photo-editing thing already.

I think the past week has been extra hectic because it was rushing here and there juggling between schoolwork and other commitments like worship practice and meetings. And I don't like rushing for something because I'm late. Okay it depends on what I'm late for; I think I'm very relaxed when I'm late for school hahaha. But if it's something important to me then I don't like the feeling of knowing I'm going to be late and not being able to do anything about it, except rushing to the place and hoping time goes by slower. :/

Okay off to pack bags and prepare to shoot and process another million and one photos for camp.
