The Heat is ON
This is the brochure that I got from Francis Toh - Pacesetters Team Leader at Lembah Kiara Park, TTDI. YES, it is the Putrajaya Marathon 2006 on 10 Sept 2006, and I will running it this time. (Got pressure from my running buddy who left me without a pacer last week bcos he over-slept, wat an excuse!!) This will be my biggest challenge and comeback eversince I last ran a full marathon 18 years ago. I will have 6 months to train myself up to a condition that can endure at least 4hrs to 5hrs of running non-stop. See ya at the starting line
Some flash back: Memories of the 80's
And this is the pair of Saucony that I wore in 1987 and did my PB in the Malaysia Airlines Penang Marathon . Timing is 3hrs 31mins.
I am still keeping it as my fond memories of achieveing my Personal Best and running marathons after marathons during that period of time when I am at my peak. Well, although lots of people will said that achieving your PB in a marathon had nothing to do with age but I bet to differ. Age make a big difference, especially in your speed endurance.
The speedy Gonzales of the 80s had turn into an Ol-man Emu now that runs a lot slower.
Good luck.....Aii yiba yiba yiba
