With only total of 330km training mileage in past 3 months, I managed to finish strong in Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2010 with Personal Best 4:31:xx. Thank God for giving me strength and being with me.
I was feeling good during the whole 42km, some tiredness and pain were bearable. I just love pacing myself.
HAVE FAITH… When I go further, I’ll get stronger. I was like hearing the song ‘The Waving Flag’ all the time. Whenever my pace drops, I just kept telling myself, ‘just maintain if cannot go faster, but not drop. I’m going to finish strong.’
I could not feel much different for being a charity runner. I was still hoping for my PB and concern about my performance but not how could I change the life of the people in MAB? May be I’m expecting more, something truly useful to the needy. I feel bad that I used so many sponges, which all have been throwing into bins; so many paper cups were disposed without recycling… and a runner just lost his life in the run due to sudden death.
However, my passion for running is increasing over time; and the love towards running is more than numbers can describe.
