(8/9/07-IMU Charity Run)
Me , towards the end of the race .
This is a run which is very worth it because the T-shirt given( for 1st 500 to collect bibs) is really value for money. It is similar to a Nike dri-fit . There were also nice items inside the goody bags
( which you can get after the run) .
In terms of organising , it is OK but not 5 star , the only hiccup is that when collecting the bibs , I had to wait at least 50 mins just to get my number . It seems all the categories were in one counter and they did not divide it into various counters to ease the flow . But the T-shirt as I said was worth it , worth the wait . Hopefully don't have to wait next time if they open more counters .
I was having an infection of the throat and lots of phlegm that I have lost my voice since Monday .Breathing wasn't easy with the phlegm stucked in the throat area .It was quite a hilly run . Anyway , I didn't push myself that hard coz I was saving my legs for tmw Mizuno Wave Run , which is also another even hillier run .
In the end just going at a comfortable pace , I looked at the U-turn runners and knew I'll be getting a medal ( For top 50 only). In the end, I got 37th position for this 7 km run at 33 min 15 secs .
Next race , Mizuno Wave Run tmw !!
