taiping run 2011
not suppose to drink, but again dragged until 12am before the run
got a lousy alarm clock from pasar malam, almost missed the run.
Started 6am, woke up 5.30am.
From pouring before the run, and showering all the way...
finished in desired timing, perhaps the rain helped to kill off the hang-over.
First time getting a goody back sponsored by Fish Ball Man. Feel Good!
Running group friend from KL.
Vincent Saw's wife Annie got a good placing, Top 5 I guest.
It was a nice run,
I think I shall come back again next year, if they continue this good legacy..

Supposed to go home early a day before the run.
Told friends must go back before 12,
ended out 2.30am.
Managed to have some sleep but got to wake up 4.30am.
Rushed to Kuala Kangsar and managed to reach before 6am.
Got to take a nap in the car - fatigue, with the hangover and bad beery-smell.
Some simple warm up and back to action again.
Wonderful scenic view along the Perak River and the petit town of Kangsar,
pity my unfit condition did not enjoyed the run the fullest.
Did 1 hr 25 min, not too bad despite my koyak-condition.
not to do this again...
