No this is not the time I set for myself for this coming KLIM07 full marathon. But this was the time I achieved when I last ran the KLIM on April 19th, 1987. Yes that was exactly 20 years ago. While going thru all my certificates I stumped upon on the KLIM87 certificate and my position for this race was 169.

This Sunday I will be at the starting line again, waiting to start another KLIM race after 20 years. To some of the frenz that I came to know in the past one to two years after my comeback, I believe some of you were just born or still drinking milk from the bottle or just reached puberty in 1987. And that was how long since I took up long distance running and I cannot claim to be any younger now.

Anyway it feels good to be able to run another 42k race at the KLIM again, bringing back the good old memories. I am looking forward to catch up with some of my old running buddies from the Kelab RoadRunners Ipoh too.

For this weekend race, I will stick to my motto "I will run to my fullest capabilities". No timing pressure and I will definitely enjoy every moment of it rain or shine. So I seeya all at the starting line this Sunday.

And the saying goes "Its not a miracle that I finish a race, but its a miracle that I start the race"

All the best to everyone running in KLIM07.
