At a normal pace until 9 km mark and saw CM ,paced with him till 16km mark at the U-turn at Terminal 3 .
CM ran off and I slowed down .
At last 1.5 km mark , Tey was there to take photos ,(see photo on top ) . He gave me some encouragement too and I quickened my pacing .
Slowly overtook 4 people and suddenly at last approx 1 km , key flew out from my shoe .I had to stop , get my key and tighten my shoe lace . At the same time , the 4 guys overtook me again .
My momentuum gone . But regained to overtooke 2 people in which I overtook 2nd person a few meteres from the finishing line .
Overall timing : 1:53: 05
Conclusion :i'm happy with my timing coz it was better than Ipoh wch was 1:57.
