Had fun last weekend though it was not exactly the Fun Run category. Followed my game plan and managed to finish below 3 hours. Though I must mention that the last 5km was pretty tough as I experienced cramps on my thighs, calves and toes, forcing me to a walking pace. Our team from Avago was a strong 70ppl. We had on a bright and striking Orange T-shirts that resemble the Fun Run shirts. Also grateful to our S&R team organizers who prepared a station just to distribute refreshments and snacks for the staff. TQ J
On the low side, I was surprised that there was only 1 station distributing the power gel at the entry point of the bridge. As at that time there were mostly half-marathon runners and we were only starting our race. By the time the full-marathon runners reached, I would think that the supply would have ran out. Just as what happened to the refreshments. Read about the disappointments of a fellow blogger here (http://bdrc.blogspot.com/2008/11/pbim08-dissapointments.html).
the bright side, at least we need not avoid traffic like what we experienced during Malakoff. Thank you to the organizers and traffic police for their perseverance. By the way next year’s event would be scheduled on 29 November 2009. So are we going to see timing chips introduced next year???
