Start  10:00am, and the weather was fine.  Albatross, team no. 232, from left to right was:  Ada Poon, Lai Chi Lun, 小吉, Janet Tin
Captured by official photographers.
Do you know what does Monky Hill look like? Here it is!
Stage 1   We set off quite  fast. We met 戴 sir at the start.  He walked with us and act as our photographer untill CP2   Friends of Team 245, taken at West Dam.

On the way up Sai Wan Shan. Special thanks to Karl Lung who took this photo for us.
It was still very hot on the way up Sai Wan Shan.  As it was very dry that day, we were eating dust for most of the stages.   CP1, Team 168, my teachers of PolyU
Stage 2 The heat of the sun was gone, and it was easier. Captured by official photographers at CP2.
Stage 3   Still walking fast, faster than what we did on training.   Sunset taken at Kai Kung Shan  " And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking..."

When going down hill, the tendon of my left tibialis anterior started aching.  We met our support team at CP3, changing our clothes, filling our stomach, stretching,  and most important, applying pain relieving rub, so that I can carry on easier,  but I've lost some of the shock absorbing ability anyway. CP3, a new way to "wear" our team shirt!
Stage 4  A night picture of Sai Kung, taken at Chuk Yeung Road.
This is the crucial stage, traffic jam can slow us down 1-2 hrs.  Luckily, we came across some, and managed to pass them even on the way down Ma On Shan.  It was very cold at CP4, I took 2 cups of hot soup to keep me warm.   One word, "cold": stopping for a few seconds , the body will get cold. At CP5, we heard the news that the Americans became the Champion. Stage 6 As my tendon was aching, I ease off on the level trail after going down from Beacon Hill. We met our support team near CP6. A cup of hot noodle is vital to our body temperature. You can see, how our baggages scattered inside the car.
The moon was rising, taken at CP6.  " The moon is hanging high, with the lonely stars behind."

Stage 7   Little memory left, as we still walking fast.  All the things happened like dreaming.  As it was very cold, we did not stay long at Lead Mine Pass. Stage 8 The forefoot of both legs started aching especially for the left one. But it was much better than the previous year, as it started aching and losing sensation at the big toe, on the way down Ma On Shan. Sunrise, taken at the top of Tai Mo Shan. Breaking the darkness, breaking our sleepiness, waking the walkers. The sun was rising fast when we were obscured by the grass, so we ran to the top to take this photo. " ...And racing around to come up behind you again."
CP8, squatting and have the breakfast from our support team, a way of stretching.
After breakfast, changing clothes, shoes, we left our bags to support team and ran for the final 2 stages.   Stage 9   We ran downhill on stage 9, and 亞基 ran with us, carrying water for us, taking photos for us.   "Tired, 累了"
And gaining the momentum again.

Stage 10   The sun was heating up, but we still tried to finish before 25hr mark.   "垂頭喪氣, Exhausted", we all bowed our heads to negotiate with the final slope.
Finish  Running fast is always better. One will have more chance to take photos, here is the evidence.  In fact, he ran to pass the camera to support team so that they can take photo when we cross the finish.

Full team!
Finishing at 25hr 07min, all our our records were broken.
Foreigners, it's time for you to learn how to write Chinese.  Can you see the people sleeping in a "大" shape" ? It means "big" in Chinese.

Certificate Presentation  Support team members were:  Helen, Keith, 亞健 & 亞基
We locked the key in the car, you can see they are trying to break into it.
And now have the chance to tidy up after 2 days.
You can see how dirty the shoes are!
