“A divorce no more crushed my heart, in fact I'm glad it happened and I met my new sayang who is lifting up my spirit. I swim, bike, run because she says so. I trained like a mad man being whipped from behind. I compete because I always want to beat my sayang in the race. I have heroes and one of them is my sayang. I'm an athlete, but like nobody else.”... try to be funny ehhh???
Genting Nite Run
Some say we're crazy, some say we're nuts... welcome to the Wacko Club! 17 of us ran up Genting Highlands last nite. It's an annual activity during Ramadan as some of us cannot train during the day due to fasting month. Did my first run and bike last year, hence I really look forward to it this year. We started from McD Genting Sempah around 2245hrs. First half 11km to Gohtong Jaya was easy peasy. Some stretch along this route was pitch black. If you don't wear reflective jacket or blinker, there's no way a driver could see you running. We regrouped for a short break at Gohtong Jaya. The second half was like hell. Total distance was only around 9km but the route was 100% uphill - some as steep as 45 degrees. Although not as painful as Marathon, the last 5km to the top - every 100m - was extremely torturous. I made it to the top around 0300 hrs. We regrouped again at Starbucks, First World Hotel before heading back to Genting Sempah for sahur.

Killer stretch 4.4km, pernah tergolek dog masa biking kat sini sbb curam sgt.
The first and last I did this race was in April 2008. I had very bad allergic after the race and MC for 2 days. That's why I never take part in the race any more after that. But this time around Fiza registered for me. Five months prior to the race day I only had one training session in the pool with 2km distance and after the bicycle accident my arms hurt badly if I do repetitive strokes. How am I going to finish this?? My target is to finish it, don't care about the timing. However, with minimal training I got minimal result, I managed to complete the race but missed the cut off in just 2-3 minutes after caught in the strong current. As expected, I was MC 2 days due to skin allergic. :(
