Mizuno Wave Run 2007

Date: 9 September 2007

Time: 7.30am
Venue: Padang Merbuk, KL
Distance: 10k
Runners: The Sanusi (Along, Angah, Alang, Suriati), Chan, Jaya, Javier, Haiezan and Fairul.
Others: Izzat(unofficial photographer) Iylia.

Before the race started, race officials divided the race participants into two segments, below 45mins and above 45mins. Chan, Jaya & Along started within the front segment(below 45mins), while others @ the back. The race started @ 7.30am.

The 1st kilometer tu struggle sket, sbb ramai crowd. The 1st hill to climb was behind the Bank Negara. It was a long climb, but not too steep. So ok laaa, still bleh maintain lagi.

At about 5km mark, reached the one & only water station. Ingatkan air sirap, sbb kaler merah. Tp rupanya air Powerbar. Tak ler sedap sangat. But better than none. Actually, it gave me some power boost also.

Not far from that, here come the most challenging part of the run. Bukit Tunku hill climb, back to back. The officials gave the second tag here(blue tag).

My strategy was to keep on running, although it's just an inch. No stopping & no walking. Berjaya juga strategi ni. Ramai juga yg kecundang during this hill climb ni. Ada yg fed-up, siap tahan motor lagi.

After the roundabout, it was downhill all the way. So, I took this opportunity to speed up. Sampai kat depan Jabatan Pertanian tu, tiba2 ada sorang runner pengsan. He can't continue the race already. Some runners helped him up, while waiting for medic to arrive.

After that, the last hill climb after Rumah Selangor. 2km to go. Another downhill run before tugu negara, apa lagi, pecut laa until the finishing line. Chan was the 1st to arrive. My number was 668. Hahaha...

We were given the finisher medal. Well, that's the 1st ever medal for me. hehehe... The organizer was good. Have some chit-chat selepas semua dah sampai & balik dlm kul 10am.

Well, the much talked about Mizuno run (which is undoubtedly the toughest 10k event in Malaysia) is now over. With that, the busiest
running season in the country is coming to an end.
It's the time for me to wish Selamat Berpuasa to all Slowmovers family member. Keep fit and celebrate life!

Rama!
