After Sundown fever
How was your race last Saturday? Anyone got a PB? I was hit with muscles ache and painful knees. Nevertheless, I’m recovering. It was so tiring after the run that I was in a daze by the time I reached home. Hope all of you have rested well enough.
My thoughts of the race
It was my very first Sundown full marathon.
During the race, after the race and reading the posts and comments from many friends in Facebook, this year’s event seemed not as good as last year. It was all about the lack of 100 plus, the water was not cold, the route was too cramped, and the long, long Benjamin Sheares Bridge. I admit that I only managed to grab 3 cups of 100 plus along the way. And I do wish that I can have really ice cold water to gulp down since the weather is so humid. I do have a hard time walking that bridge (oh yes, I was so drained that I walked more than I ran).
Many times, I wanted to give up, as my legs were really hurting so badly that I can’t run anymore. I thought of the medal, the finisher tee and photos of me crossing the finishing line. The time was in favour, hence I decided to walk to glory.
The crew along the way was supportive. Those at the hydration stations were encouraging everyone. It was really an experience for me. The moment I crossed the finishing line, I heaved a big sigh of relieve! I made it!! (But sad to say, I forgot to flash my megabyte smile for the photographers..)
The hard-earned medal and finisher tee, my pride, my sweat.. And now I can proudly say that I am a 42.195km finisher!
