KL 10K City run 22/2
This was supposed to be the run for me to go for my personal best.Perhaps a sub 1 hour thingy... After all the running I've done for the past 1 year ; I was looking forward for a big difference in timing. I was ready to sweat it out ; ignoring the pain to reach the finishing line. Despite it was post call ; and I was still seeing patient at 615am did not alter my focus. I rushed from UMMC to Dataran ; and it must have been a record time because it took me only 7 minutes to reach there !! Giller laju.. hahahaha I arrived just after 7am and managed to catch the gang for my number.
I started off ok , but of course not with the elitist but with my standards. I was pacing alright and was running smoothly as we went across the Bukit Tunku area.
However... the butterflies in my stomach went from bad to worse. I went to the toilet earlier in the morning so i didn't know why I was getting this funny feeling at that time. ( Maybe it was the KFC combo at 230am !! ) I tried to ignore it but by the time i reached near 5km , it was inevitable. I was having goosebumps !! I cannot wait !! Hahahaha I needed to make a fast decision ; to go on and "tahan" or let go !! It was at the Jalan Duta junction and the last possible place to settle my "business" .. it was really really bad...
Quickly I diverted and went to the apartment gurad house..
" Abang... tolong lah bang..perut saya sakit sangat ni..tak tahan !! Boleh saya pakai toilet tak ? "
I was frowning all the way to show my seriousness. It was like the monkey from the sang kancil stories cry.
"BOleh..boleh.. mu gi belake tu.. " " Terima kasih bang !! " and i made a fast dash !!
Annndd... waaaaaaahhhhhh... it was such a relief and I must say , a generous letdown !! Hahahaha.. I was looking at my stopwatch to see how long it was and of course there was no way ican catch up !!
I continued my run ; caught up with Azad and arrived at the finishing line safely :) Well , sometimes it does not work out the way you want it but okla kan.. what to do ? Next run ? hahahaha
Moral of the story : i better "vitagen"ised myself well the day before.. :) This is not the first time something similar happened to me !!
