NB 15k

finally another race after KL marathon... have not been doing much except lying around and fetching my daughter around.... haiyaa... where got time to train mah...

anyway was suprise i did quite well in the race clocking 1:18 achieving my initial target of 1:25.... was so busy arranging for the full moon party the night before that only had about 3hrs sleep and all the beers taken in...

suprisingly didnt had much problem getting up sharp at 5:15 am ... but the problem was just before the start as i was already starting to yawn... only managed to catch Karen early of the race.... i was feeling fatigue even before race start.... OMG..

furthermore the route has changed and we have to immediately go uphill after the starting line... didnt push myself and i think i reached the 10km mark (2nd water station) in 52 mins..... it was after this portion that i slow down considerably allowing few runners to overtake me...

however was really suprise that Jamie was also overtaking me... wow he has really improve a lot... till towards the finishing i shouted to him to sprint forward and manage to overtake him to take the overall 172 placing...

manage to catch up with Adrian (who is leaving to Dubai soon), Saiful Kodi, AbuPower and few other runners which i dont remember the name... was too tired to chat so had few quick drinks before heading back home...

i was totally floored (due to unfit also)... sleeping more than 4hrs straight during the evening... it was a good race ... an uneventful one considering the amount of training i put in... getting old already... haiiii..
