|I Saw, I Came, I Conquered 25KM - Half Ultra Distance!!! Not As Easy As 1-2-3-4|
I went to collect my racekit and Rashid's on the very first day, 27th December 2012. It was a very hectic day where I had to make several rounds at the carpark area in Midvalley to search for a decent parking space. It took me 1 hour to be able to do so, since it was school holidays + Christmas holiday spirits (still) + lunch rush hour. However the racekit collection went smooth like a breeze. Awesome!
|My Cute Lil' CIMB Kraken... Ada Ong Ka Ini? Hiks....|
|Racekit content... Not bad at all... =D|
|As usual, it's Makanthon time!!!! LOL.... ;P~|
I did risk myself to jeopardize my performance the night before the event, where I've agreed to go for a friendly volleyball games with my fellow FB Sharkz group friends. Why? Because I haven't seen them for a long long time due to personal, running and work commitments. It started around 9pm and was supposed to end around 12pm, but I decided to go home early around 11.15pm. Since I have never been playing volleyball for a long time, I suffered a very sore arm muscles after the games. Goshh! Plus, I felt hungry after the games too... Looks like my energy have been depleted but I kept ignoring it before I went to bed around 12.30am.
|Not to forget, zillion THANKS to Babam n Memey for this belated BDay gifts... LUV them V much!!! =D|

Post Race Must Dos
Then it was time for post-race photoshoot session for all of us. I took some pictures with Kak Lina and Abang Zaini, Gus Ghani, Izwah, Kak Nannoor and her hubby Abang Ib, my fellow WARriors and last but not least, the legendary famous Ultramarathoner (160miler), Sifu Ultra Rayzeef. It was an unexpected rendezvous for being able to have a meet and greet session with the legend himself. Truly really inspiring just by reading his running blog all these while. It felt like a dream, just like meeting some Hollywood celebrities (James Franco,Mariah Carey,Madonna,Nicki Minaj,Brangelina just to name a few) LOL... Sempat lah ambil berkat dan aura ultra dari Ultra Ray semalam... huhuu... Owh by the way Congratz for your Newton Ultra Challenge with an super awesome timing of 5.15!! Full RESPECT Bro!! I was blown away amazed!
