Hong Kong Marathon
We were in Hong Kong last weekend for Gareth's marathon. He did really well and was very pleased with finishing - despite the heat and 95% humidity, which was a shame as the week before was quite cold. As I was waiting there were lots of people being wheeled over the finish line on stretchers with drips in their arms. I was getting a bit worried for him but he came across the line pale but still in one piece. He has his sights set on the London Marathon next - which should be much easier not having to train and run in 35/40C heat.
I had fun doing a bit of shopping and catching up with some friends on the Saturday night, while leaving Gareth tucked up in the hotel room. I felt very independent traveling around HK by myself. It really is quite easy once you get the hang of the tube and ferries. I had a lot of fun!
Now we're back at school it's been a busy couple of weeks. I have my observation tomorrow. I really hope it goes well but I am feeling very nervous. After that just 4 weeks until we go to Thailand for our last beach holiday before we head back to the UK. I really can't wait now!
