Warmed up....!!!
9.00 pm.. Honk...Blared..De 21k journey begins... ran along the airport ... filled with loud noise of the planes taking off and landing...About 6,000 runners joined me in de journey...didn't really enjoy de run as i had this sudden lost of excitement .... lost the mood of running... so just ran to finish..Up to km 15k.. my pacing was good...half way thru met Abang...manage to pose for a pic...10q...heel pain started.. stopped a while....n ran....stop n ran....till de end... finished in about 1: 59: 25... Javier was ahead of me .. finished in 1:56:00...it's 11.00 pm...Rushed back to the Shuttle bus pick up center...have to rush cos the last MRT is at 12.00 am ... de queue was long... can we make it....????...
After a while..manage to hop into a bus .... it was 11.25am... shoudn't be a prob to reach Pasir Ris by 12.am.... but.. due to the jam.. missed the last MRT by few seconds...took a bus...which can get us near to Redhill so that the cab fare would be cheaper...
