|Some where over the rainbow... My pot of PB FMV perhaps? LOL!|
Okay then, back to the main topic, I would like to give my sincere review on this recent running event I`ve participated in. This time around, the journey towards this run wasn't smooth sailing like the previous runs. It was full of dramas too. I'm sure many of us are Drama Queens and Drama Kings too, just like me... =D It's the spice of our life, right?
I was down with sore throat at first, since last Friday. I thought it would be a normal mild sore throat. Apparently, it became worse and I suspected my tonsilitis striked again. Along with a swollen tonsil, came this burning fever and a very very dry sore throat too. My internal body system was getting hotter. I tried to self remedy by gargling with salted warm water, Listerine some more and took lots of Dequadine to soothe my swollen tonsil. I couldn't eat properly without feeling the pain. Even yawning was very excruciating enough.
|It was raining cats and dogs that night yet the glorious KLCC looked marvelous! hehee...|
|My sinful indulgence, could not help it.... The grilled lamb was sooo yummeh.. I siap tambah 2x! Got satay some more..|
|Got myself a caricature sketch for free during the bash... Well done caricaturist!!! I looked gorgeous.. =D|
I reached the Kompleks Persekutuan around 6.30 am. Parked nicely and saw many runners were already there, jamming the side parking area. I ate a bit of banana and half of a bun for my pre-running fuel. I forgot to bring my energy gel, so I have to rely on the energy drink provided along the route. I started at the back of the crowd. Around 7.15 am, we were being flagged off.
|The overall route... Lots of greenery area and awesome rolling hills... Luv it to the MAX!!!|
Unfortunately I didn't bring a camera to capture the moment. The inclinations around Solaris Dutamas reminded me of my 30km Pacesetters Back to Basic route the previous week. The only difference is, it was the reverse route only. I love the water barricades around 6.8 km, I almost tripped and fell when I tried to cross over the second barricade. Clumsy old me... hahaa... My timing was 45:58 for the 7 km with the pace of 7'40'' (Too much stopping by at the WS, I think...)
Once I was nearing the 10 km mark, I clocked in 1:06:48 with the pace of 6'53''. Not that shabby, considering my body condition at the moment. Mana bole DNS this auspicious running event, all my running circle friends were joining it as well. Nanti jealous tengok dalam wall FB diorang... Hahaaa...That thought was running through my mind early in the morning. Once I crossed the MATRADE finishing line, I clocked in 1:20:49 (my NIKE+ Apps), with the pace of 6'22'', while my net time is 1:22:00.25 (Tudiah detail abes habaq ang!). Not bad at all for orang sakit like me.... huhuuu... I've targetted my PB at least 1:10 but since I was not on my best condition, I'll have to satisfy with my timing. Syukur sgt2...
|Oh dear, why am I looking down? Must be the mintak nyawa mode activated already.. Panting and puffing so badly...|
|Pose2 wajib feeling kurus after the run... LOL!!! This Salomon tight gave me a lot of chaffing... Urrghh!!!|
|Front view... Pretty cool!|
|Rear view... Nice eh?|
|Yours truly and Rashid, the Drama Queen aka Mami Jarum ... We are not twins, siblings perhaps? LOL|
|My We Are Runners Circle + Chin's Clan also... Huhu... Well done guys... Keep on running!!!|
