1st Putrajaya 12hr International Walk

Start Date: 13 Dec 2008
Start Time: 8:00pm

End Date: 14 Dec 2008

End Time: 8:00am



























I came to Putrajaya to walk without knowing what to expect

I came to Putrajaya to walk without knowing what I am getting into

I came to Putrajaya to walk
because I know my running frenz are walking too
I came to Putrajaya to walk because I know this is something I will always remember


As the race started I walk like as if I am shopping
As the race started I walk with no urgency

As the race started I saw young and old irregardless of age walking together

As the race started I saw some goons pushing their way thru


In the middle of the race I overtook some walkers and some other walkers overtook me too

In the middle of the race I made a conclusion that women can really walk

In the middle of the race I am starting to enjoy long distance walking

In the middle of the race I know my effort will be always remembered by myself


When the race is over it was like a carnival where everyone congrats each other
When the race is over it was the longest ever event that I stay on the road without sleeping

When the race is over it was a remarkable achievement that I had done in life

When the race is over it was the day that I felt I have done something right for myself

That's a nice way to do a race report. Quite fun reading it. Maybe should put some background music and start rapping to it. :)

yipwt said...

wow..12 hours walking....how far did you go?

C-CUBE said...

chipmunk, yah just for the experience of it. anyway i found that walking its quite fun too although is a much slower spot. but if u will to walk competitively, it can be as fast as running. i hope i am not getting more extreme!!!

yip, i was targeting to complete 42k since this is my debut long distance walking event in my life, but as I walk i got stronger and manage to cover 50k with another 2hrs to go. I thot I have exceeded my target and didnt push for it. So I rested for an hour and walk slower for the next hr to finish it off in 53k. Also towards the last 3 hrs, body is getting tire and legs not willing to move anymore.
