Last year I was a volunteer at Wuxi Marathon and I got the inspiration to participate in a Marathon. Finally, this year I have achieved the opportunity to become part of a marathon. This is the first-time experience for me to participate in a marathon. This activity helped me to improve my running skill and see that achievement is all about motivation as I saw people of different ages participating in the marathon. I want to thank my teachers and teammates and the organizers of the activity. I hope every year our university will organize this kind of activity. Thanks to all.
The idea of running a marathon was a too bold and exciting experience for me. Because this is the first marathon in my life and I thought it was pretty challenging for me. There are decorate the whole university, it was looking so beautiful. They arranged everything very professionally. It gave us inspiration.
For the first 2 km I run on a pulse up to 155, I am surprised to see that I run 7 min/km, which is pretty fast for me. I feel that I can add more, but I’m afraid of scary stories about hitting the wall. After 2 and 1/2km I drank a tube of water. After that I finished my marathon. It was exciting imagine wonderful experience. I have made the terrible mistake of not paying enough attention to strength exercises. However, I can say that my decision to take part in this run made me feel very proud of myself, and now I can have bigger goals—both in sports, education, and my future career.

This was my first time to run a marathon after the pandemic of COVID-19 virus. I enjoyed every moment of the day. We ran across the finish line together. In the marathon race, I felt that we all ran together to overcome all the obstacles at present. By completing the last line, I felt that we had overcome it.
In the marathon, I sang some sentences-Little little steps, slowly slowly run, We will become the winner, slowly but surely in the future. Thank Jiangnan University for arranging such a beautiful moment.

Our school conducts a marathon day every year. It takes place in November every year. This year, Marathon Day was a very exciting and happy day that almost every student looked forward to. Every student participated in different types of marathon sessions.
I enjoyed this wonderful day and it helped me showcase my athletic abilities in front of an enthusiastic audience. It showed me how far I can run marathons and go through the ring of fire with ease.
On this marathon day, I brought back home one medal, and later I got a certificate that signifies my win this day. Marathon day provided me with unforgettable memories. It gave me a chance to make even more and better memories with my friends. Thus, I enjoyed this day a lot. When I pass out of my school, I will try to visit my school on marathon day. It will be a sweet walk down memory lane and also a great chance to meet my teachers and friends.
