Yes, I’m Running Strong…
Happy for my performance and achieved my goal today which simply aiming for ‘Running Strong’. I was well prepared myself with intake a cup of coffee and a chocolate bar for source of energy, then release whatever should be released.
Before race started, I tried to calmed myself down (I always kns the kan cheong in the race) by chatting with Adam, Frank, Joey and frens. Thanks the organizer flagged off the race very on time, so I can cut short the suffering of the feeling of kan cheong.
I started slow cause it was uphill, and then pushed harder by distance. Still feeling good after climbing the Kenny Hill but just a bit shock by the under distance’s distance board. After entering Jalan Parliament I realized it was the time to speed up more. I was targeted on a competitor 10m in front of me but I took my own sweet time to approach her. We paced side by side at the U-turning Jalan Tunku Adbul Rahman to Jalan Raja Laut. After the turn, it was show time! I still have a lots of energy conserved and started to sprint all out. When I got back to finishing line, I was number 9, well, still safe and in the top 10 list entitle for cash prize.
The feeling of sprinting on Jalan Raja Laut till finishing line was good, for the first time I felt traffic smooth on this road where most of the time I stuck in the jam in a car here :P
Although I managed to control my pace better but this time I conserved too much of energy and not enough time and distance to unleash all of them.
OK, since I just got 100 bucks, so next week trainings sponsor 100+
