“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.”

This is recovery run after I ran a marathon on the previous weekend. Started from Stadium Kelana Jaya at 3am (yeah, we are crazy people who didn't sleep to run a race) heading to Subang Airport then to Ara Damasara before going back to the finish line at stadium. I clocked the fastest 10km (52min), I reached 15km mark in 1:27 hrs. At this point sub 2hr seems possible but I was bonked from 18km onward. Dang! Anyway, I still did my PB for half marathon in 2:15hr. A PB while doing a recovery run??? Unbelievable huh!
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 :(
