The Chronicles of SAR: Galaxy Entertainment Maratona Internacional de Macau (Day 02)

December 04, 2011, the day of my second marathon outside the Philippines and my first road race below 15°c.  I could’ve come more prepared but things don’t always happen according to plan so the goal was simple: to have fun and finish within cutoff!
