Orange Run 12/04/2009

Post Race group photos.
 
The podium finisher except Me, Myself and I . :D
 

 Final Sprint.
My first road running races for this year. GE 30 k was abandoned due to some left knee pain. From this experienced I learned to train smarter.
It wasn’t my target race but I need a race to get myself started. I went to the curve early in the morning to warm up with Bee but soon I found myself going to toilet again and again. Fortunate enough I did some warm up around the curve with bee, lisar, gane and dr Ray.
Before the race starts, my instinct told me that I should drink a cup of water before the run as most of the run in Malaysia prefer to serve isotonic drinks. I guess water is too expensive.  Turn out to be quite true they only serve 7UP isotonic drink. When I saw Gane, he was complaining about water station. Bee was complaining when she reached the finishing line. If any race director is reading this, as a runner I would like to let you know, no water = = dehydration.
Upon reaching the starting line, I found out that the man’s category which is A and C will run first. Something that I don’t like in road races unless timing chip is use.  After 5 to 10 minutes, our turn (women category) to start. I do not have any target this time , I just maintain certain % of heart rate. My legs are quite tired and heavy from hiking gunung angsi yesterday. Cross the finishing line at 59:37 minutes.  

Thanks Tey and Frank Choong for the photos
