Wake up at 430am after a heart broken Saturday night ( Arsenal lose 2-3 to Tottem even leading 2-0 by the first half). Rain reckoning heavily outside the building... Dad :" don't go if it rain so heavily." Son: " Are you out of your mind?". Head straight to bath room , change, car park, fetch sister, arrive there at 5:50am, traffic is terribly crowded, "Wtf is the Waja doing? Fuck!" Shouted in the car while my sister just sit right beside me.
Nice temperature and humility while sprinkling rain drop was on their way from the sky far away from the earth. I heard that run was on live in Astro, it's a good news that finally running has been embraced by public more and more.
I finish 48:11 minutes with 167th in Men 10km Open category , an unexpected timing for me indeed, wondered if the distance is count wrongly. Take the medal , say hi to Cari Runners before head for home. There are 4 interesting things for me in this run...
First, I say hi to a foreign couple on the way back to get my car ( or my dad's car ) ." Good morning, How is the run?" , Uncle:" Good, it is fantastic!" Auntie:"Did you run? Which category you ran for?" " I just run for 10km category" Auntie:" Why just 10km?" "because I long time didn't do training for long distance run already." Auntie" I see." "alright, see you , have a nice weekend." They:"you too " .
Second, a car parked at the roadside had blocked the bus from passing through , few uncles is trying to move the car but seem not enough of people," come come" so I and a few uncles more helped them to move the car aside a little bit to give way to the bus.
Third, when i almost reach my car, an auntie asked, " Hey, you are the marathon participant?" Look like she is looking for her son or daughter, " Yea, I run 10km ." "ohh... 10 km " she walk away with a disdain look ... haihz.. what is wrong with running 10 km????
Last but not least, after read the newspaper only I realised, the Cari Runner Column Editor has just proposed to his Girl Friend after both finish running 42km!!! What a romantic proposal!!! The news is on Astro as well!!!
