“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.”
Malakoff 12km Run
Nothing much to say about the race. It was same as last year and a good lung bursting race for newbies. To me 12km run is like a daily training except this one on hilly course. I mean very hilly 2 loops circuit. I met many usual suspects and new people too, and one of them is my blog reader Mr. Burn. Like Burn, Azim & a few others who knew me via my blog, they said they get inspired to take-up running after reading my blog (errr... really?!) Maybe they just trying to be nice to me. Well, I'm glad to be able to help people finding their passion in running. They are slowly improving their performance and even some of them are running faster than me now. Hmmm... I gotta train harder in order to stay ahead of them.
Looking forward to my last race of 2012 on 30th December (if there is no "end of the world " on 21st December).
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 :(
