“A divorce crushed my heart, but not my spirit. I swim, bike, run for my kids, for my health and for my soul. I trained like a man possessed. I compete because there's no greater high in the world. I have heroes but don't see myself as one. I'm an athlete, just like you.”
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!
Last time I raced in Desaru was 6 years ago. It was Uncle Chan's event but now a Singaporean event company took over it and because of that the race fee was exorbitant!! Unfortunately, I don't earn in SingDollar :(
