Those were the days.....The Finale
My greatest moment in my running career. Finishing my best timed marathon crossing the line at The Esplanade, Penang in the year 1987. This was the moment that I was so proud of. Happy that my training for the race enabled me to achieve the target. Talking about EXECUTION WITH A PLAN!!! In this race I executed to my plan in trying to clock a good time, and every thing went well till the finishing.
And next week I will be running my 4th marathon in 2 years after making a coming (lay off for the past 15yrs). Fortunately or lucky for me the past 3 marathons timing have been improving, so I have no complain about it. I am not going out there to put pressure on myself to run a good time but more so to enjoy the race. If I feel good on race day, I will definitely run to my fullest capability in finishing the race comfortably without any suffering (I hope)
