I had some difficulties during the race so I doubted if I would be able to finish the race. But in the end, I was able to break the course record. Participating in this marathon organized by Kantipur reminds of the international tournaments.
I am really pleased to win the two marathon that I took part in and now I am planning to shift my attention towards marathon itself
I wanted to participate in the previous year’s marathon but was unable to. This year, I was able to win the race in my first participation so I am delighted.
This was my third participation in the event and I am happy to win the title in third attempt after finishing second and third previously. I will now focus my attention on middle distance running.
