I made it halfway my journey through life!

With life expectancy around 76 years for men, I just entered into 2nd half of my life yesterday. How many years more I will live in this world, only Allah knows. I just lost a friend who was drowning in Perhentian Island four days ago  while trying to save a tourist and he's only 28 years old. If you are not dying because of natural causes, accident will take your life. Come to think of it... I may not live longer than I think. So, it is wise to live your life to the fullest.

The marathon was on 26th February but I went there 3 days earlier to pick up race bib, visit the expo, acclimatization and take part in International Friendship Run a day before the marathon.

The marathon check-in was smooth and the reception was very warm manned by kawaii Japanese girls. Many freebies were given away to the runners & visitors. I bought a T-shirt and cap with Tokyo Marathon logo on it and took lots of photos.
