One of my worst Half Marathon in this year

What : Ipoh International Run
When : Sunday, 2nd July 2006
Where : Dataran Ipoh, Perak
Distance : 21km & 10km

Oh! Pangsai, Pangsai & Pangsai...
U know hor, I really geram wit myself lah. Why I always so many shit to pangsai wan. B4 come out from our hotel (Merloon Hotel), pangsai 1 time liao, then sibo, when to Syuen Hotel wit Shine, pangsai for 2nd again time. So hor, I tot no more shit liao, kong kong cheng cheng liao . And then hor, at starting line me and Shine oredi in grid position. We plan to pace together until finish lah. After der gun bang, we manage to stay close to each other, until der 4km. I told Shine to go ahead 1st. I'll catch up later, coz want to pee mah. From there oredi lost 15s liao, cinya damn it. So hor, had to run a bit harder to catch up wit Shine lor. While I almost wan to catch up wit him liao hor, Kanasai leh... Sakit Perut! That was about 5km nia, try to look for petrol station lor. Too bad, none of der petrol station is available. Imagine lah, pia wit der shit.. cinya kang khor u know!

Finally after 8k plus hor, I saw der jamban liao (I mean der petrol station). Sumore hor hv to cross der road leh, so cinya dangerous loh. After cross der road, quicky bom der petrol station. From crossing der road, pangsai, cross back der road, it take me only 54.88 sec. Consider cinya keng chow liao u know! U can do it boh?

After continue my run hor, I feel cinya susah. My engine like cool down liao, sumore perut still cinya sakit. After 12km everything back to normal, so from there on I pia wit full force liao. Slowly potong sayur one by one until 15km I can see Shine was 100m ahead of me nia. Shine oso got perut problem, perut cramp. After 18km only manage to pia wit Shine neck to neck until finish, but this time luck was not on my side. Shine win der battle of sakit perut.
