“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???
Mizuno Wave Run 2007
This is the final race before puasa next week. For the past 3 months, I took part in 6 official races and yet I still can't beat Ala's records of 10 consecutive races. Today, many familiar faces I met: Ala, Bean, Joejo, OP Fadhil, Cikgu Adnan (my teacher in RMC), Steve, Vicky, Karo, Mejar Kalam, Wendy, and Ala's parents. Unofficial record 1:07.
Bagus la baju sponsor ni.... Arigato Mizuno!!
With 65 yr-old forever macho Cikgu Adnan, his arms are bigger than mine. He threw me a challenge to run 10k in 50 mins.
OP Fadhil, the "forever young" 56 year old guy
Everyone blasting at the starting line
People from all walks of life, running together
Me, Ala & Wendy in action
Despite going uphill, everyone keep on running
First time in my life that I have to queue up to cross the finish line
Panjang tuh... tapi apasal belah women category kosong jer?
Bean pirated, tak sempat register
I was surprised to see Joejo there. Good start bro, let's do it more often in the future!
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. :(
