It's been more than 24hrs since Gobi March 2019 ended. Feels surreal that it's over, after more than half a year of physical and mental preparation. Yes I survived, I completed, and what I cherish most is the friendships gained and the inspiration I got from all the heroes around me the past week, whether they came in first, last or DNF, they are all heroes.
Special thanks to the race organisers, volunteers and locals who made the event possible for us. You are the force behind the heroes. THANK YOU!
Special shout out to my family and friends who sent me messages and kept me in their prayers, they meant alot to me! When I was at my lowest, the thought of you guys supporting me from wherever you are gave me the strength to press on. Forever grateful to you all.
Time to rest those tired legs and body and not thinking of running, walking or backpack for some time.
If you're reading this and contemplating to do the race, go do it! Prepare well and enjoy the pain, you will not regret!
