Running “Amok” around Bukit Tunku

Wow! It seemed like forever running the Mizuno Wave Run 2008 around Bukit Tunku. The fact that there are slopes and hills from the start to the end put the run to another level of toughness. I like the cool surroundings there especially in the morning.

I took this run as another challenge for me as I wanted to finish it within an hour (compared to last run’s 65 mins). The best thing in this run is that they loan a timing chip to participants so that the actually time used for running can be recorded. And they will print it out together in the certificate. Therefore, our certs are not ready for collection yet.

Coming back to the run, it was for sure tougher than last week’s because of the hill-y area. I am not sure how much time I took to complete the race. My wife told me it was over 60 mins but I don’t take that as an official record. I am looking forward for the timing in the cert which they are going to send to us soon.

Anyhow, I managed to get a M-E-D-A-L!!! It’s limited to the first 500 runners of Category A (Men’s Open). And the best thing was, guess what? I got 497 placing in the whole race which includes all other 5 categories!!! Impressive eh? Ya, I know! 🙂 I’m surprised too. I really need to train harder to achieve better placing in future runs (If I am still in the business then).

There were a huge number of participants – 3100 participants in total. Can you imagine the huge turnout? BTW, I met a few friends here… Let’s keep ourselves healthy together! 😛
