EVENT: One Mile Dash 2008
DATE: 31st December 2008
ATTENDEES: Suraiyah, Sumarni, Suriati, Izzat and Iylia

AT about almost 10 pm, Along called me at the office, and she was almost screaming with delight on the phone. "Along dan Angah dapat podium finish dalam One Mile Dash! Along got second and Angah third!"

Fuyoo, my two half a century old sisters achieved another milestone in their running careers. "Congratulations," I said, though I felt she was not telling the whole story. I was right.

After the euphoria had gone down, Along in a softer tone said: "Mana tak dapat podium finish. Yang lari dalam kategori wanita veteran hanya TIGA orang! So podium finish memang guaranteed!" And she burst out laughing.

Tak kisah la kan. Whatever it is, the results of the race said Suraiyah Sanusi is second and Sumarni Sanusi is third, so you deserved to bask in your glory.

For Along, this is the first time she had a top three finish, jadi dia memang thrilled gila. Angah relaks sikit pasal pernah dapat nombor dua dalam Nacscom Charity Run 2007. Both of them also finished in the top 10 in the Rimbathon Run at FRIM, Kepong in August last year.

So congrats again to my sisters, with a parting message... it would be much better if one of you write the race report... barulah readers boleh 'feel' what you guys went through before, during and after the race. Next time, okay?
