Medals collection 2010

All the medals I got this year.

Year-end school holidays with my Ian & Dmi.

We had so much fun together for the first 3 weeks plus before I sent them over to spend time with their mummy. I miss them already. Hope next year, I can take them live with me if my ex doesn't want to. :(

Final race of the year, Malakoff 12km Run

Image
Closing my 2010 race calendar with Malakoff 12 km Run on 19th Dec at Bukit Damansara. My timing was 1:07 which wasn't that bad for two-loop hilly course. More races coming up in 2011.


Singapore Marathon 2010

Image
This is another record breaking when I did 3 major races (1 powerman & 2 marathons) in 4 weeks. I was pushing my body over limit but I was enjoyed doing it. Anyway, don’t try this at home if you are not mentally prepared and lack of training. Seriously, most of you will give up half way or maybe not even half way :P I couldn’t see where the heck is start line from where I was standing.Whoaaaa…. I couldn’t see where is the end of the line too. I must have been standing somewhere in the middle. Roughly 15,000 marathoners and 60,000 runners in total including half marathon & 10km run took part this year. My fellow Singaporean runners S’porean Blade Runner, Kash & Zam This is why we call him Blade Runner. Don’t play-play, he can cut your head with one swing kick. Anyway, despite his disability, he continues running and shame on you who have both legs but too lazy to exercise. One photo of myself :) It took me nearly 10 mins to cross start line. Running in the middle of the cit…

Penang Bridge Marathon 2010

Image
Obviously not enough time for me to recover from Powerman on the previous Sunday. My body just refused to increase the pace. To make it worse, I didn’t have enough sleep and proper carbo-loading as I took a bus from KL at 3:30pm on Saturday and arrived in Queensbay Mall 5 hours just before the race. Even the weather was not on our side, we were struck by tropical thunderstorm at the middle of the bridge. Imagine you have to run against the wind and I couldn’t look forward to see where am I going. Despite all these I crossed finish line in 5:38hrs. Not my PB though, I’m happy with the timing :)BibNameCountryOfficialNet3722m18679m21137m32988m37789mA00857KAM KASTURIEMALAYSIA05:39:1305:38:310:23:152:14:532:38:414:18:295:02:31Race started at 2:00am.

My first Powerman race (14th Nov 2010)

Image
During my last Powerman two years in 2008, I was in Manjung to race but I was DNS (Did Not Start) after experienced very bad diarrhea only 5 hours before the race start at 7:30am. So, technically this my first Powerman, I was very happy to be able to complete it within cut off time and I got a medal together with finisher T-shirt.Run 11km: 1:01 hrs (T1 – 5 min)Bike 64km: 2:09 hrs (T2 – 5 min)Run 10km: 1:18 hrsTOTAL: 4:39 hrs (Cut-off 5 hrs)I haven’t ride my bike since Desaru and only focused on running has taken a toll on 3rd leg. My last 10km run took a lot longer when both my tights cramped up due to lack of bike training. Hope I would be able to recover before Penang Bridge Marathon this coming Sunday.Travelling with Kay & LaifThe weather was nice & hotWe stopped for lunch at Bidor Banana Leaf Curry HouseMy lucky number With fellow friendsTransition area So many participants this year.
