Coach Rameshon told me that the photo bears a lot of memories. It was a photo in year 2008. In year 2007, co-training partner Daniel Ling came in as the champion of Stanchart Marathon 2007. 

In 2008, in Berlin. Daniel Ling did 2hr 49min while Coach Rameshon did a 3hr 31min for the marathon. Dr Ben Tan did a 3hr 01min for the marathon. Coach Rameshon was amazed with the performance of Dr Ben Tan. But the latter was very disappointed with his performance.

Dr Ben Tan invited Daniel Ling and Coach Rameshon for dinner. Anne, who did 2hr 51min then was also invited. Coach Rameshon shared with me on how Daniel, himself and Dr Ben Tan ran a very good race and came in 1, 2 and 3 for the Stanchart Marathon 2008 race, thereafter and that was the year where Dr Ben Tan did a sub 3hr, finally. The time taken was 2hr 56min, the first doctor to do a sub-3hr.
