Standard Chartered Bangkok Marathon - 2011

It was a great experience to watch Standard Chartered Bangkok Marathon 2011, Bangkok at 3 am. I was invited by our Nepali participant Mr. Mahendra Man Maharjan and his coach our veteran player Mr. Baikuntha Manandhar.

It was a memorable time to watch the start of the game and talk with Mr. Manandhar. He shared his past experience with me and my other friends Dr. Ashish Subedi from Nepal and Mr. Hilal and Mr. Alam from Pakistan. There were many runners from around the world of different age.
