One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My most crazy thing I have done is one month 4 marathon in 4 different places,I join bangkok marathon,singapore marathon,and 2 marathon in Taiwan during 2014.Other crazy thing is I support my country runner in Badwater,snap pix and pacer for him,badwater is most tough foot race in the world with their strict selection and also weather.I travel 32hrs alone first time to meet Malaysia team.It is awesome experience for me,life experience !截至目前為止,我最瘋狂的就是一個人搭三十二個小時到美國拉斯維加斯,以作為大馬跑者吳少剛參加惡水超級馬拉松的後勤人員,在平均攝氏五十度的情況下,拍照,陪跑,非常疲累,也很開心協助跑者完賽。
