“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.”
Putrajaya 12-hour Walk 2013
I took part in last year's race and I had so much fun. So, I signed up again this. Other usual suspects were Lorraine, Arfian, Faris, Jason, Mohan, Ejah, Kien Boon and others. Unfortunately, I felt miserable this year going round and round in 1km loop like a hamster! No matter how hard I tried to shake my hip like a sexy hula hoop girl dancer, I still couldn't walk fast enough. I did 56km last year but this year, once I completed 42nd loop (yup, marathon distance), I stopped walking and continue with sleeping. The great thing is I brought Ian and Dmi along and they slept in the tent. Another camping trip this year.... in the middle of Putrajaya!!
I would like to thank Pacat team, Arman, Zul & Zinov for feeding me and my kids during the race.
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 :(
