Bidor Half Marathon 2010, Medal

Yes!! It has been confirmed, I won’t be having a mid-term exam this year. My school has cancelled it, due to, too my tests this year. It takes 3 weeks just to finish sitting for our exams. And the week after the exam, teachers spend time discussing the questions with us. So far, we have 2 tests this year. So, that makes it 2 months without lessons. It’s too time-consuming, so they called it off. πŸ˜€

Here’s a picture of the Bidor Half Marathon Finisher’s medal. The coolest half marathon finisher’s medal ever. The weird thing about this medal is that the only thing that differentiates the 21 km and 10 km medal is only a ’21 km’ print on the medal’s PVC/ leather.

Bidor Half Marathon 2010, Finisher’s Medal

I just found this. Bidor Half Marathon 2010 by khokl74 at Garmin Connect – Details. I know that GPS watch existed. But, with all this features.. It’s so great! This guy ran and recorded the recent Bidor Half Marathon. Look at his timing.. Far greater than mine. Haha.. almost an hour faster than my timing.The garmin GPS watch could record the track you run, distance, speed (min/mile), Heart rate, and elevation. It also has many other functions, such as, virtual partner, pace alert. You can even compete with your previous course.I am most impress with it’ , Garmin Connect and also Garmin Trainning Center Software.

Bidor Half Marathon 2010!!! =] + Puppies For Sale

What a tiring run it was in Bidor yesterday!! But, I am glad that I made it to the finishing line within the time limit of 2:45:00. C=

We left from K.L at 3.30 a.m. Thank God I had a long 4 hour nap on saturday afternoon. Or else, I would be like a zombie in the morning, like what happened during the last Penang Bridge Marathon. My body woke up, but my brain was still partially asleep.

Reached Bidor before 6.a.m and collected our bib number and also the extra big t-shirt. Then, drank a cup of milo to ‘fuel’ myself. I think, that was a big mistake, we’ll get to that later.

Fast forwarding to 7 a.m, the race started. Ran and ran.. Then at around 5 km into the race, after passing the 1st water station, I started to have a cramp on the right of my stomach area. I ignored the pain and continued running. But, it got from bad to worst, until a point that I could not bear any longer. I stopped running and started walking. Still the pain was there for almost 5 minutes. As the pain went off, I started running again. Then, it came back and I return to walk. At that time, I thought that the race was over for me.Β  After walking for another 5 mins, I started running. Praise God, the cramp did not return again throughout the remaining 14 km. I think it was caused by the cup of milo before the race.

All went well for about 2 km. I even met my parents who were on their return run for 10 km. 2 km later, i hit the wall. That means, my body is running out of precious glycogen. When that happened, I felt very tired. Even worst, all the drink stations except one at around km14 did not have isotonic drink!! By the time I reached there, I was very exhausted. I drank 3 cups of them, because I have a feeling that this is the only station that will serve isotonic drink, and I was right.

After the drink, I ran like an unstoppable machine, well, for a while. =P I ran a little faster to cover up for the time I had lost. At that time, the sun was blazing hot. What a race, stomach cramp at the start, hitting the wall in the middle, and now, the hot sun toasting and dehydrating me. All went well except for the blazing sun, until the last kilometer. Then, my calves muscle started to cramp. I ran slower and walk time to time, and wondering.. why is the one kilometer so long.

Then suddenly, I saw my parents. They cheered for me and told me that the finishing line is just around the corner. That’s what I want to hear!! =) Metres from the finishing line, there were about a dozen of people in a line with their cameras pointing at me! LOL. It was like finishing first! πŸ˜€ Finished in 2:36!! around the same time as Penang Bridge run. At least I made it to the finishing line.

The most difficult half marathon ever. First, I have never run a race under the sun. Penang Bridge race was held very early in the morning, so, I finished the race before the sunrise. Then, the remaining 2 were night marathons. Second, I have never had such a bad stomachΒ  cramp before.

The finishing medal was well designed. I like the stopwatch-like design. The finishing certificate is hilarious. Since RFID timing tag wasn’t used in this race, the certs could be handed to us without the finishing time printed on it. But, that doesn’t mean that the distance you ran/ or category isn’t printed on the cert. In the cert., the left the distance empty. If I ran the 10km race, I could print 21km on the cert. So, anybody want to buy a Bidor Half Marathon 2010 certificate?? Just e-mail me. haha.. jz kidding.

I’ll be posting pictures of the finisher’s medal soon. So, stay tune. 2 more pictures of the puppies.. πŸ˜€ Cute ler..

Aiden the mix (poodle + terrier)

Aiden is an active dog.. That makes it more difficult to get a good picture of him. Where else, Aaron is a little lazy. He prefers to lie down rather than jumping and roaming around.

Aaron - lazy and sleepy all the time..

By the way, the owner of these puppies are finding for people who are interested in buying the puppies. They are poodle mix terrier breed. If you are interested or have any enquiries, don’t hesitate to e-mail or down a msg in the comment box. πŸ˜€

Plug N Run

Long time since I posted.=)

Last week, my school had photo shooting session for half the week. For 3 days, didn’t even enter the class, helping out in the photo shooting sessions. Don’t get it wrong, I wasn’t the one taking the pics. No worries, teachers did not teach cause, half the class was missing.

This week, lessons went as normal. The skull changed our canteen tables to McD style tables. Quite cool, so colourful. Now, the french fries taste more like McD’s fries.. Haha.. πŸ˜€

I also had a chance to take pictures of 3 poodle puppies this week. They aren’t mine. I don’t wish to have my own dog, unless someone help me bath it. hehe.. jz want to play with it.

Dream Oh Dream~

My 2 1/2 weeks of exam just finished last Wednesday. I kinda like exam weeks, coz, I don’t need to listen to lessons for 5 hours. Actually, I prefer studying by myself than attending lessons during school. It’s not so boring.

Nothing else much this week, except that I found that my school is not gonna have mid-year exam for form 5s’ this year!! Woohoo..!!!Β  I know it contradicts what I said earlier…

Somehow, I can’t wait to get through SPM. It’s 220+ days to SPM!! Time to shift to a higher gear.. πŸ˜€

Below is a candid pic. I took during my school’s Sports Day. I like this candid shot.
