The only negative thing I have to say is that I'm pissed with my Nike+ Sports band that gave me wrong distance readings and totally threw off my pacing during the run. I can't wait for the Nike+ GPS Sports watch to hit these shores so I can be the first in line to get it!
But overall I'm happy with my time and crossed the finish line in a time of 1 hour 25 minutes for the 15K :D It's always feels great to cross the finish line of any race. I felt fine throughout the run and thankfully, my work related injury was fully healed and my legs and lungs were in excellent working order. Now I'm really looking forward to the Standard Chartered KL Marathon in 3 weeks time.
As mentioned earlier, the race was properly organized and there were lots of promotional food items for the runners after the run. I had a fun time gulping down cup after cup of my favorite Gatorade drink. I also confess to feasting on one packet of free nasi lemak (yes, there were giving free nasi lemak too) being offered and tons of watermelons too :D
A big shout out goes to wifey for successfully completing her maiden 15k in a very respectable timing :D I'm so darned proud of her. She's come a heck of a long way from someone who hated running to one who can't get enough ... LOL! Good for you honey. Thank god I'm not working tomorrow, can recover from today's run :D And now, I leave you with some pictures of the race.
