SCKLM 2017 - A Warm Up Race
|KM-34, almost wanted to cry :P|
|Gathering before the race!|
My HR went up very quickly when following her. It raised to about 5 beats higher than planned. At about km-20, it reached about 165 which I wished it could stay below 160 so I knew I would fuck up soon and no miracle happened, at about km-30, I had that sensation feeling in my both legs especially the left thigh and I knew it would come soon so I had to slow down. The last 11km was just dreadful. It took me more than 80 minutes to complete! Haha! Thanks to all the bro and sis who cheered me up and offered help during the run.
I finished the race in 4hr 10min. 2 mins faster than my personal worst in SCKLM. LOL! LUCKILY! But it's ok, this is kinda like my "warm up" race which marked the end of the base phase. Picked the wrong distance though. Should have picked the shorter one like HM or 10k but no fun if not running the full marathon in one of our biggest local running events. At least I got to meet a lot of old friends and made some new friends. And people, this is an AIMS certified route, the distance is 42.195km regardless what your GPS device tells you. There is this thing called "GPS-inaccuracy" terminology. Trust your gut and the distance marker set up by Dirigo. You should doubt when it's the distance marker from other organizer but not this one! In other words, you do not need to convert your pace/time to 42.195km, the net time is your real official time for the 42.195km! :D Congrats to all the finishers and winners!

I'm sure I will run this every year, I don't want to miss it, it's the BEST running event in Malaysia. I can see that the organizer spent a lot of efforts to improve and promote it. That's how you should organize a race. You listen, you learn and you rectify! This time it looks flawless to me! Hats off to Rainer and the team!
