Sun, 20th May 2007, Padang Merbok KL...

It's 6.07 am. Wondering alone looking for xxxx mates to run the 15 k New balance run ..although I am not very much in balance today... Ever since the Big Walk i am havin some kind of pain at my calf...ain't no y...? couldn't find anyone....wooi...comin or not...? where r the slow movers...they r only suppose to be slow during the race..not all the time... .. I even ferterlize the plants twice while waitin... (nature call).... Did some very slow warm-ups as the calf aches everytime I make a fast move...Kena urut kot...calls for reporting at 6 45 am...

Sharp 7.00 am ..poooooooooooong, marks the start of 2007, 15k run... I started slow....as usual and couldn't increase the turbo ...sakit...semacam...( I mustn't N won't do anymore BIG walks)..... Our coach over took me...the rest of the Slow Movers..... movin slowly..at the back..as it is the first 15k for all of us. It was hilly ...same as the 2006 Mizuno run but we have to do two loops. The run was fun..as the weather was nice, power bar drinks at the water stations and a lot of hills....nice to run on the hills..manage to conquer all the hills cooly N slowly without stoppin...

Forgot to start the watch on time...so couldn't get the proper time....finished at 256 with the timing of 1:19 - 1:20. Our friend Javier..as usual the fastest in the group finished 70th in about 1: 10 N the coach finished
at the position of 132 in about 1:16. Abang got the second medal thru out his marathon career in the time of 1:50 N he has proven that he only can do the though ones.... Yang senang-senang tak mainlah.... Suriati ..the hardcore lady ( never say NO) finished in 2:00 and the ultimate runner of the day , Kakak Sumarni finshed it in 2:02. It's her first above 10 k run...Oops.. it's her 3rd but yang paling jauh setakat ni....she did it very well...Syabas !!! How about tryin Penang Half Marathon..kak?
How did she manage to run the hills..? First few hills...I can..cann..cannn..cannnnnnot....to the last hill... says kak in an exclusive interview...by Starsports with the runner of the day.The Slow mover are goin further N ......Keep on Movin Slow Movers....One day we all will B doin the Marathon...

Collected the goodies N Medal .... Grab milo 5 cawan....mana boleh miss, porridge,fruits....Pics N Chit-Chat...Makcik tak datang cos away at Kuantan....Missed all the fun...Met Uncle Steven, Ms Julie, Jusmile singh, Mrs Mag n Sis...
