12.00 am (31st May - 1st Jun)..Changi Village,S'pore...

It's a midnight marathon..first ever in Singapore....My first attempt to run 42.195 km after almost 21 years..can I do it with not much prepration (only one LSD - 30k Great Eastern)..
The panic status has struck ...my body tempreature is a bit above the normal, my nose started to run earlier then my legs... Oh boy!..wat's happenin..???...but the mind says..what the hack...just get down there ... n just do it...!!!
Agus N Yulie...the superb couple whom I stayed with in Chuo Chu Kang province ( sent me off up to the Pasir Ris MRT which is the last staion for the East-West lane). A shuttle bus ($2.50) took the runners to the Changi Village. Reached there about 11 pm...ramai juga yang gila cam saya...lari waktu orang tido....thousands of runners...Wow!!...changed n deposit my bag...warmed up...++ panic... Met Guna, Azli N Choi of the pacemakers...
12.00 midnight ...The 42 km journey began... I paced myself with 6 mins per km ...finished my 20 k in..about 2:02 ... slowin down.. n 30 k in about 3:30 and the other 12 k in about4:59:09.
The last 4 km.. cam no ending..seems like runin another 40 k... felt like runnin in a steady pace but actually u r not...it's time to listen to the body....the mind just have to follow ma...Lack of experience n tactics. We crossed 3 Overhead bridges,.. one with steps,4 small bridges.. ran along cylcling N jogging tracks, sandy,cement n carpet like paths..it was just like running a cross-country Marathon...The Organiser N the Supporters were awesome..thumbs up!!!** It was really a nice N fun run...even tough very the .. tired but the Joy of finsihin...(tak terkata) that endorphin ... overcomes everythin ... that particular moment ... the moment of .............................. excitement, joy,glory,satisfaction ....oh boy...What a Feelin ! ..Wanna feel it...so come lets run !...5.30 am took the shuttle bus back to Pasir Ris Mrt ... N an hour Mrt ride back to Agus's apartment.
Pasir Ris - Jurong East - Chuo Chu Kang... East-West --- North- South !
... N will I be doin another Marathon..?.......... !!!
Well Y not .... but ..due to my prolonging..injuries.. (my knees) cos of the previous bike accidents..Doc says "time n rest heals it" which is not known when....I am yet to decide...depends on what my body n mind says N on my Gilaness too !!!
Friendship has a lots of this n that to say.. but as 4 Agus N Yulie ...I ain't got no words to say...best,great,awesome,superb..it's....above all...Thank you frens..I had a nice trip travlin from East-West n North- South N nice Indonesian food. C soon in Malaysia.
Next would the Pacemakers Relay meet....till then ..Bye !!!
