“A divorce no more crushed my heart, in fact I'm glad it happened and I met my new sayang who is lifting up my spirit. I swim, bike, run because she says so. I trained like a mad man being whipped from behind. I compete because I always want to beat my sayang in the race. I have heroes and one of them is my sayang. I'm an athlete, but like nobody else.”... try to be funny ehhh???
Newton Run 2013
It was my final event for 2013. I never miss sign up for race every year and this year I was planned to run as fast as I can in my new Sketchers Go Bionic. This shoes should make me run faster because it did change my running style. On the race day, Eena requested me to pace for her. I was a bit baffled when a fast runner (Eena is sub 4:30hr marathoner) requests me to pace, I accepted the challenge because I was expecting to be dropped by her half way. Fortunately, I'm the one who pulled her throughout the race. Either I run faster now with my new Go Bionic now or she was slacking up with her training. Anyway, we clocked 2:46hr for 25km distance. In fact it wasn't bad timing at all for a hilly course in Bandar Kinrara.
The first and last I did this race was in April 2008. I had very bad allergic after the race and MC for 2 days. That's why I never take part in the race any more after that. But this time around Fiza registered for me. Five months prior to the race day I only had one training session in the pool with 2km distance and after the bicycle accident my arms hurt badly if I do repetitive strokes. How am I going to finish this?? My target is to finish it, don't care about the timing. However, with minimal training I got minimal result, I managed to complete the race but missed the cut off in just 2-3 minutes after caught in the strong current. As expected, I was MC 2 days due to skin allergic. :(
