KL Marathon 2008 - Race Day Updated!

I am quite disappointed. Even though it has yet to start. Recent workload has piled up and family commitment do affect my training schedule. Should not have any excuse anyway. Else, it would soon become a habit... Well, let's see how far I can go. I won't force myself until stupidly, injure myself. Mentally, I am prepared. Preparing for the worst. No regret as I did not give out.



30Mar2008

I took 2 days off to settle my errands in Msia. Then, Qing Ming on Sat. It was tiring. I don't even remember to buy any PowerBar/Gel for this race. It just showed that I'm not taking seriously in this race. Or, not able to.

Woke up at 3am and just drank a cup of milo. Crazy, I can't find any solid bites for my stomach at home. Meeting ameba & Rwen (the one who had given me the idea to GAVE UP) at Dataran Merdeka. And, the 'Tiger' showed up too, coming for a free run. Hmm, I should have given him my bib!

From the start, Rwen had suggested to just run 27KM, the point when we wil turn back to Dataran Merdeka. That's luring, with my poor condition. Ameba kept coughing. I didn't aware that she's sick. Poor 'bride'.

I was hungry. And, it's the 1st time that I felt so sleepy while running. At 10km mark, I think the 'threesome' (Rwen, Ameba & Me) were already set the mind to stop at 27Km, with tonnes of excuses. Tiger had tried his best to wait for us but soon, missing in the bush of marathoners.

1st Failed Marathon. Not shame of it. Glad instead as being part of it.

落馬是需要很大的勇氣和理智的頭腦。永遠有下一次全馬,而且會跑得更好。

加油。

如同金三顺所说:如果一个人要划过太平洋,那一定很辛苦;如果两个人,就好,累了的时候有人在身边鼓励你,旅程会变得轻松愉快。

Time can be arranged/prioritise. My wife scolded me recently.
