Date: 5th June 2011 (Sunday)
Venue: Dataran Perbadanan Putrajaya, Putrajaya
Before the Race:
This race I didn’t do any preparation, just want to do a relax run. 15km is not too long or too short, only hope that I can complete it without walking.
Early morning 6 o’clock reach Putrajaya, the sky still dark, but it is filled with red color, wind very strong too. I thought today is gonna be a “rainy race”.
During the Race:
6:30am, the race start. This time I stand in the middle part of the starting point, mainly want to try Ronnie See (Pm1) chase from behind way of running. First 1km is considered warm up, after that I accelerated like a cow again, always scare of unable to chase the people in front.
10km - 44:35
I’m crossing people all the way until 10km, the position then fix, I try to maintain my speed in order not to slow down too much.
The whole route have two turning point, two times I have seen Kenny Wong followed Lionel Lee (Pm52) closely on the opposite side of me. I should be right behind 1km of them, chasing hopeless.
15km - 1:07:13
The last part of more than 1km straight road run was the most tortured, keep looking at the finishing point but forever never reach, end up crossing the finish line with a very pained expression.
After the Race:
Today was a good race be run, flat road with less hill, the weather is cool and without rain, some more have Gatorade to drink. Should have come back next year.
