I did it!!!

my body did some weird body clock early morning yesterday. I woke up at 12:05am, 2:15am and at 3:02am. Supposed to wake up at 4:30, preparing early for my 10K race, Larian Bomba that morning. and at 4:30 i dah malas giller nak bangun. That really sucks when your body really refuse to wake up. But my mind and heart said i had to ... so, i did. Went on the 6am train and by 6:30 i'm at Dataran Merdeka.

by this time, it all looked familiar to me. I knew what i had to bring, most importantly that report card. hehe... and this time i just carried my handphone and untrafuel (energy drink). banyak siot orang (according to theStar, there were 4,700 runners on that day). rasa takut jugak. i was alone as usual. i had my newly installed stopwatch on my hp ready. so off we went. i ran and ran. when i'm feeling really tired, when i think i really really need to stop, i stopped for just 60 seconds... and continue with the running. Got lots of supports from the young firefighters... thanks guys :D 10K is really hard. Running is painful, i kid you not. at around 5K i felt pain on my right leg and at the last kilometer, i felt sharp pain on my left lung. but that did not get on my way, and i increased my pace at the last kilometer. And i didn't get any medal this time, just a certificate. But damn, the success is even sweeter this time. told y'all i never finish a 10K before this, and i did it this time. and this race i dedicate to Jack the goose who has been missing from the park for a week now. I'm praying that u're at a better place, my dear Jack :(

Some people were asking why so suddenly, i'm into running. Well, honestly, it was this 1 fine Sunday evening 2 months ago, after woke up from a nap, i stared at the fan and just decided to run, for no particular reason. That's it. I don't even have a running shoe at that time. the good thing about all this is that i never give up. that's more important that anything else and i just keep on running. as long as i'm at the starting line, and cross that finishing line, i'll be fine :D
Forrest Gump: That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd run to the end of town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd just run across Greenbow County. And I figured, since I run this far, maybe I'd just run across the great state of Alabama. And that's what I did. I ran clear across Alabama. For no particular reason I just kept on going. I ran clear to the ocean. And when I got there, I figured, since I'd gone this far, I might as well turn around, just keep on going. When I got to another ocean, I figured, since I'd gone this far, I might as well just turn back, keep right on going.

shell : 10minit takper tuh. at least u hv the guts to be on that treadmill... ada org tak start langsung pun. that's a good start. hehe jumpa masa ur wedding sebab will b bz in this 2 wks time.. ada reunion this wk and ada race nxt wk.. and then lepas your honeymon bleh jumpa lagi.. anytime pal.. anytime bleh jumpa...
