Lim Thow Wee - Hungry to do well

Lim Thow Wee - He was the hero for us in Paris Marathon, April, 2014.

After hearing the success of our fellow runner Ashley Liew, Thow Wee has decided to work hard to do well. He told me," I am more hungry", after going through the memory of stopping in the  the Asian Marathon Championships held in Hong Kong. We had discussion after the race and I told him that it is better to stop when he had stomach upset during the run. As the situation was getting worse, Thow Wee finally stopped the race. It was a wise decision to do.

Lim Thow Wee will be aiming for Seoul Marathon 2015 in mid-March and is hoping to do well in the race. He finds the 3hr 27min improvement made by Ashley recently in Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans Marathon as significant and it has impacted him to work harder for do well the next time.

From 3hr 45min done in year 2007, for marathon, Thow Wee has done a 2hr 48min 49sec for the Paris Marathon 2014. We believe that in marathon there is ups and downs and we are glad that Thow Wee is taking it positively.
