|My Back-2-Back Event Finisher Medals, Totally Intensely Priceless! =D|
KL Tower International Sunrise Towerthon Challenge 2013 (5.00 am)
We went to collect the racekit at Telekom Museum on Saturday after the morning run and my squasy session with Nizam. The racekit collection was very well well organized and we were done in a jiffy (5 minutes). The goodies bag was awesome with plenty of vouchers (Starbucks and Krispy Kreme), a magazine (Shape or Men's Health), a packet of Adabi, running vest and timing chip. After that we went to Klang to send our friend to the LCCT before we headed home to call it a day.
|My super nice goodies bag, not bad at all...|
|Rashid, Faiz (Ratu Menara KL) and I before the torture start!|

As I reached the last WS at TH00, it was already 20th floor, my legs were already felt like a jell-o and my calves and hamstring muscles were started to scream in sore. It was already 30minutes. I bumped into Faiez Buer before that WS and he encouraged me to continue tackling the flight of stairs. He said we were almost there already My heart pumped like hell at that moment. As soon as I could hear the beeping sound of the finishing mat, I quicken my pace and tried to run a little faster and finally reached the summit in 33.03.35 minutes. I was ranked 550 out of 1250. Not bad for a plumpy voluptious first timer guy like me. Hahaa...
Once I was given the finisher medal, I did not waste the time to rest at the summit (TH01) and went straight away to the lift. I did not have to queue long for the lift and the lift was not crampy at all. Maybe because it was still early in the morning. After I took my nasi lemak and water bottle, I rushed towards my car to change into my MILO running tee and shorts before 6 am. Several minutes later Rashid arrived at the car park and I wasted no time and off we went to UPM. Made a pit stop at Serdang Rest Area for my no. 2 business. Rashid told me that some of our friends were stuck in the serious traffic congestion at UPM Toll exit. Therefore we decided to take the Kajang exit and park the car in MARDI.
MILO Malaysia Breakfast Day Run 2013 (7.00 am)
|So many runners even at 500 metres from the starting arch! Gosh...|
|Me and Sazmie gave our cheerful face before the run|
|Rashid, I and Izwan at the back before we took off|
|Keep on running no matter what, never walk yaa... That mantra I got from Kak Rom really work like a charm!|
|Almost there, almost at the finishing line... I ran like a Zombie already... Lethargic much!|
After the run, I went to take my goodie bag and dashed to the nearest MILO Van for the super sinfully delicious and irresistable icy cold MILO drinks. Hehee, actually I drank a lot of them, lost count already. Hahaa! I even poured the MILO into the drinking bottle and brought home. Met with the rest of the runners for a photo session before we headed to the Nasi Lemak stall with our coupons. Felt like buying food on a Canteen Day just like in my primary school years. We had to wait long for our breakfast meal because the caterers did not prepare the food in advance. However it was worth the long queue as the nasi lemak was super yummy! Hands down.
|Picture of the day with Aafong in the background,. She finished in 28th place. Super LIKE!|
|Rashid, Kak Lina and I... You looked stunning in your chili red GCAM vest, Sis! =P|
|WARs happy happy face... (Walaupon I`m the slowest bunch.. hahaha! Like I care...)|
|Met Mohd Ridwan Mustafa, my Twittermate, Congratz on your Top40 finishing dude... RESPECTO!|
|Papa Padel and Baby Ayra posed with the finisher medal. Hopefully she'll be bitten by the running bug soon, just like her parents. =)|
Wish me luck for my 3rd FM this coming Sunday's Hat Yai International Marathon 2013. Still under mileage even during this tapering week. Hopefully I'll hit a PB this time around with my old knee injuries at bay. Like they say, third time's the charm? Insya Allah... =D
|Wish Me Luck Guys! Fat Guy Can Run Fast Too... Ngeh2!!!|
