Tagumpay si Anne Curtis sa pagsali niya sa London Marathon. Natapos nga ni Anne ang 40K na kategorya na sinalihan niya.
And I did it! Finished my Second World Major Marathon 🥇. Time – 5:12. The @londonmarathon was my hardest race. The hardest to get into and the hardest for me to finish. Don’t get me wrong, the route is much easier than NYC but I did not expect the unusual London heat. The moment I hit 20km at 12:30pm. I had a hard time breathing, felt dehydrated, the sun was beaming intensely and at one point I wanted to give up (I know. So dramatic) but I knew I was running this for a cause. Running with a mission – For the FILIPINO YOUTH @unicefphils . As painful as it was, it helped me power through those 42 kilometres! I’d like to thank the Filipino Community here in London that were on the side lines cheering me on. You don’t know how much it helped me. Thank you. I’ve read all your posts and I’m so touched by your kind words. Thank you so much! Mistakes and new learnings were made on this run. @londonmarathon you were amazing and my first ever toughest run but I’m coming back for you when I’m done with the world majors!! Just you wait. #Londonmarathon #LondonMarathANNEventure 🇬🇧👊🏼🇬🇧
Makikita sa IG stories ni Anne kung paano siya napagod nang husto, maligo sa pawis, pero hindi siya sumuko. May mga moment si Anne na naglakad na lang siya dahil sa sobrang pagod.
Bago sumalang sa London Marathon si Anne, nag-post muna siya kung bakit niya kailangang gawin ‘yon.
“After months of training for the @londonmarathon, I’m so ready! Got butterflies in my tummy! Super nervous but running for the Filipino Youth will keep me inspired each kilometer! Here weeeeeee gooooooo! Prayer warriors, please pray for me that I have a safe run without injury or complications. Thaaaaaank you!” say ni Anne.
Ipinost din ni Anne sa IG stories niya ang mga nag-donate na mapupunta nga raw sa mga kabataang Filipino.
“To everyone that’s donated, thank you so much! You can still keep donating over on my simply giving page. The link is in my bio! Remember, whatever the final amount donated is, I shall match. All for the love and programs of @unicefphils #LondonMarathon #SpiritOfLondon #LondonMarathANNEventure,” sey pa rin ni Anne.
Anyway, sino pa ba ang masugid na supporter ni Anne sa laban, takbo niyang ito kundi ang mister niyang si Erwann Heussaff. Para ngang kasali rin si Erwan sa London Marathon, dahil bago pa ang event, sinubukan na niyang takbuhan ang mga dadaanan ng kanyang misis.
