I registered for the 14k event as it was the longest route.My training was sparse but the frequent biking I did certainly did the trick. Managed to maintain my speed for an hour and at least 10km consistently and coming to that Sunday, I was prepared to try my best.
The event started at 8am and I was there by 730. Thousands of people was there and the atmosphere was certainly electrifying. Apparently there was more than 20K runners in WACA. I was excited and eventhough it was a cold morning, it was certainly an event I've been waiting for!
The route was nice, the water support was for every 4km and the atmosphere was wonderful. There were pom poms and cheerleaders encouraging us and of course i was elated! I managed to maintain my speed and not feeling tired or exhausted. It was the earlier part of the race when i was trying to find my own pace mixed about by the group.
I was really happy when I was at the 10km mark, my time was definitely the best I've done ever I reckon! I controlled my emotions and tried not to over do it and Alhamdulillah.. crossed the line in 77 minutes! Not bad for a 14km run after a long hiatus!
