“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.”
StandChart KL Marathon 2012
Yes...completed my 16th Marathon in 5:27hr. Errr.. not PB but not bad at all. I brought my camera as usual to capture the event, unfortunately I forgot the memory card at home... dang!
Still having flu on the race day after almost a week, but being stubborn I forced myself to run despite congested chest. I took it easy with slower pace. Between km 10 & km 20, I had stomach upset and got to take two long toilet breaks. Don't know what's wrong with the food I ate although I cooked myself for carbo-loading. Overall it was good run and my legs still fresh after crossing the finish line. This is a good sign for my up coming Ultra Marathon race in September.
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 :(
