* Sorry for my late report, lately cinya bz like kok n spoon.
Bcoz this is one of der G7 event, gua cinya kan cheong. I was standing quite front row too, together wit Zulazlan Pm43, but Zul seem like more kan cheong than me. From der moment countdown start, gua turbo off wit full throat. No one blocking me, I hv a smooth run all der way from starting line. Reaching 5km at 21m 49s, cinya happy still on target for my 4'30 pace. Keep sayuring runners every KM, by der time my watch show 45mins liao. Ehh!! Where is der hack is der 10KM mark? Strait away dont hv der feeling to pia anymore, mean I oredi out of my 4'30 pace [insert TNS KNN CCB LLM FTAAA here].
Then suddenly all der sayur runners come n potong me back. After 47mins of running, finally saw der water station n der stupid 10KM mark. Step on der stupid map hard hard at 47m 38s, then press back my on turbo button. I keep figure out how come my 10KM timing so bad one? Later I found out it was actually 10.5K, mean I still on target one, but too late to know liao [insert cilaka FTAAA here].
Wit another 10K to go, my pacer was 2 runner who was only wearing der 3 quarter pant n running vest. I very jeles who stiil kenot keep up on to them, pia n pia still seeing their bontot most of der time. After 15km manage to sayur one of der runner 3 quarter pant runner, mean 1 more sayur to go. But that fella seem going stronger n stronger, until finally der most jialat part. Which require to go for another 1 big round b4 going in to dataran. I think that fella tot going to finish liao, hemtaming der pace kau-kau lat. Then I saw der official shouting at him, asking to turn right no strait bcoz no ribbon yet. Suddenly der fella pancit liao, feel cinya sorry for him. My watch show 1h 30mins plus liao, I dont think I can PR liao. Der 1 more big round at least need another 9mins or more or at least 1.9km to cover. Imposible.. cinya imposible liao..!
Can hear der sound of finishing liao, try to tekan as hard as I can. Der official no shouting at me, bcoz I got ribbon liao. Despite kenot PR liao, but I still keep der spirit high to pia all der way out n cross der finishing line peacefully.
Dont know wat went wrong thru out der whole race, to me I think I did my best liao. My mission is to better my last year record, but today seem like not my lucky day [insert pm1 cinya heart broken here].
