Woke up at 5am today, had a rather smooth trip to reach stadium shah alam about 6.10am. actually we had to stop by at esso to ask for direction. But it was fast. 11km race starts sharp at 7am. with the mayor of shah alam and datuk flagging off the race. Either the datuk or the mayor kept pointing the flag off gun at the participant which is kinda scary, haha the runners at to look up at the podium to the datuk or the mayor and say: pistol...pistol...jangan aim sini:P.
Alex finish his 11km run in 1hr and 7 minutes. He made 2 stop before the finish line. first was after the first 2 km where he stop at caltex to pee. 2nd time was when a person fainted infront of him, alex had to keep waking him and waited for ambulance to arrive 3-5 mins later. as usual was happy to see some gym peeps:) and its time for me to get a new camera as the entire time all the pics was taken using my hp. luckily prasat reminded me a feature in my hp which could take continuous pictures. and thanks to carina which got a last minute entree for alex to run.
you can actually see many types of runners, some runners carry their shoe bag to run, some carrying school bag to run:P some was on the phone while running, some run bare foot and these guys were really fast! and for your info, almost all top 10 runners are kenyan, for a minute i was like er.......Kenya BOLEh! heh:p it was great to get a change to see the handicapped category and veteran category participating. you get really motivated by them.
