Klang Half Marathon 2008

Image
A not so good 21km run this morning. Carpooled with Ala & his parents together with Azmar on board. Met several familiar faces like Abu & Saiful.

Today, first time I greet Haza aka "Running Mom". We've been seeing her in several races before but never had a chance to say hello.

OP Joejo was there too. In fact his company DCM Tooling sponsored the medals. Nice job bro!! Mcm lambang Superman lah.

All of us did 21k except Ala's parent & Joejo did 10k run. Timing not so impressive. I clocked 2:28 after I was forced to walk due to cramped up. I should have taken ORS & some breakfast before start the race. After completed KL Marathon, I shouldn't take half marathon so lightly. Anything above 10k should be well prepared. Now I learned my lesson :P

I'm not feeling well after the race. I got 3 days MC after watery spots covered my whole body. I am allergic to something in the sea. Probably the sea bugs or sea lice :P

Just a short write-up, not in mood to write. It was tough race. Like I said before, to cross the start line is already an achievement for me to overcome my fear of doing open sea swim. But to complete the race is beyond my imagination. Like marathon, if you are tired or cramped up you can just sit by the road side waiting for sweeper bus. But in open sea long distance swim, probably they will find you sitting at the bottom of the sea.

One thing I learned from this race..... if you have determination and perseverance added with being a lunatic once a while.... probability to achieve your target is higher. (Oppss... i start talking like an analyst :P)

Thanks to Steve for arranging the trip and inspired me to do the race. Azmar & Ngae for your moral support. Cikgu Adnan (my ex-teacher in RMC) & Mat Licin for …
