Instagram photo by edansya #throwbackthursday at the Tokyo Marathon 2016! Every marathon that I had participated has a story and the Tokyo Marathon was one of the most memorable. . . I achieved my goal to break the 2:41 barrier after having tried for 13 months and finally I achieved a Personal Best in Tokyo with the time of 2:38:55! . . Just a few days before the Tokyo Marathon, I was saddened to hear news from Malaysia that Marathon event would be excluded from the SEA Games Kuala Lumpur 2017, when my goal at Tokyo Marathon was to break the SEA Games Qualifying mark. . . At that moment I knew that through all the obstacles before and during the race, that I had to prove that as a Malaysian Independent Athlete, the country has a candidate who has worked hard independently to be among the best in South East Asia and to represent the nation. . . The story about my race in Tokyo Marathon 2016 was big news in Malaysia at that time. I believed that with the result that I achieved together with the petition from the public in support of the Marathon event in SEA Games 2017 gave positive responses to bring back the Marathon into the Games, as it one of the favourite event in the Olympics! . . On top of that; 2.7K Liked this post, 489 shared, 115,080 viewers and more than 230 positive comments and encouragements showed the support from the Malaysian Running Community that made the change. Thank you for all the support! 🏃🏾💨🇲🇾 . . #mymarathonstory #TokyoMarathon #sub241mission #daretodream #edansyahjourney . . Check out the story on my FB Page. Link on bio.
