Penang Bridge Marathon 2010

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 :)

My next race will be Stand Chart S’pore Marathon on 5th December. To those who still being couch potato, only watching EPL on the TV and never wanted to exercise…. please continue doing so. Running a marathon is too much painful and very torturous. You might not enjoy it.
