Another run in 2017

I never thought of having another run after my run that I mentioned here until I saw the Taiping Prestavest Memorial Park charity run registration form that shared on FB. The run was on 5 November, and I believe this could be my last run in 2017.

Though this run was in Taiping, I have never been to run at the actual trail before. It was kind of excited for me to run on the totally unfamiliar trail. As usual, I didn't sleep that good on the night prior to my run. My breakfast before leaving home was bananas and oatmeal. The organizer had set up plenty of food for our breakfast, we were served with nasi lemak, fried noodles, bananas, guavas, isotonic, Milo, and sandwiches. I  took a sandwich and again a banana. Then I went for a slow jog to warm myself up. As it was raining heavily the evening before, so the air was very cooling and clean in the morning.  The weather was beautiful. 

There were 4KM fun run and 8 KM race by running two rounds on the same route of 4KM. This picture was taken by the helper after my first 4KM, and I was told that I was leading in women veteran group.

I completed my 8KM in 38 minutes that showed in my Mi Fit app. I bagged myself the 1st prize, a big trophy, RM300 cash, the great satisfaction, and happy memories.

He is the men senior veteran category champion. He is also the men veteran category champion in KOBL 10KM 2017 and Perak Koperasi Run 2017. Whenever I met him, I would seek his pieces of advice on training. He never failed to enlighten me.

My first run was in KOBL 2015, I didn't join any run in 2016. This year, I have totally joined 5 runs this year. My results were 3 champions, 1 first runner-up, and 1 second runner-up.

I still run 8.5km 4 times a week now. My next year plan is joining 3 running events.
