It was raining early in the morning, and i thought we'll gonna run in the rain. I never get the experience tu run in the rain before. Some said it's nice to run in the rain as your body wont get overheated.

depart from home at 6.00am. Reached The Curve 6.30am, it was raining lightly. 15mins later the rain fully stopped.

Met the rest at The Curve. The run for men categories started at 7.30am sharp. The women started about 10min later.

The air was quite cold because of the raining earlier. Got some difficulty to run during the early stage. But managed to get the rhythm after a few kilometres later.

After the Shell station, there road is going uphill. Lots of runners started to walk uphill, but i didn't dare to walk or i will lost my momentum there. So, I ran slowly uphill. I'm quite struggled. There's a water station after the first uphill road. Drink 2 cup of 100plus and continued my run. No more water station after that, except 2 nasi lemak stalls in front of Puay Chai Chinese school. They should sell the water also on that day, i bet you it will be selling like hot cakes.

Reach the finish line at The Curve, clocked my time at 1:08:00. Not a good timing though. Alang finished not far behind me. Saw Chan & Fuzahir already finished. Grab 2 cup of 100plus. Took the long queue for goodies bag. Grab 2 cup of Oligo Coco. Man, it taste good!!! Highly recommended! Seeking for my all time favourite, Milo. Drink 4 cup of milo and take some rest while waiting for others.

Other runners arrived, chit-chating, went to Big Apple Donuts & Coffee and bought some donuts and chow-chin-chowwww... !!!

On the way to the car, meet some fellow runners and they told us about the upcoming Graveyard Run which will be held near the Sungai Besi chinese cemetery the following week. Wowwww.. that's creeeeeepyyyy...
