Who joined the Penang Bridge Marathon this year?
I heard it got really expensive over the years. It's like RM40 plus for just 10km run or something. I wouldn't know how much it actually cost because I would NEVER, and I mean NEVER sign up for marathon/running/exercise events like this.
So, when you see/hear me talk about how much time I took to finish a 10km run, it's because someone (and there's always SOMEONE) from Dream Catcher couldn't make it and they have extra jerseys/numbers etc. Since it's paid for and no one was gonna take it, why not right? Since I've also gained that useless 3.5kg of nonsense in the body.
This time, however I decided to get Koay come along too. Also, since he needed keep his feet exercised (he injured his ankle's ligament, almost tore it entirely), why not accompany me right?
But he couldn't run so we walked from the beginning right till the end.
At first, I thought it was going to be super nice and stress-free to walk alongside the injured boy and maybe we could watch sunrise too. I was wrong. Not that it was horrible. It was just bleh. Walking was no fun when everyone else was running. I felt like running but I didn't want to leave him behind, carrying his heavy bag (people's wallets, mobile phones, water bottles and snacks). Yes, we even took turns to carry that burden. So sweeet. Haha.
Anyways, it was hard not to run when one by one, people are running/walking really fast past us and guess what he was doing 90% of the time!
HE WAS TALKING NON-STOP!
Of all the time he feels like yakking at that time. I mean SERIOUSLY TALKING ABOUT EVERYTHING. Hahaha. I know I sounded like I'm complaining now about him, but it's really not. I'm just amazed at what this guy is up to and it always surprises me, whether in a good way or bad. HAHA.
I remembered at one point, I even ask politely, "Babe, can you keep quiet for like 5 minutes ah? Just 5 minutes so I can walk peacefully?"
Guess what he did!
Took a bottle, removed the cap and poured some on my head. Yep, he was that bored. And he continued asking questions that I never answer. I kinda just enjoyed ignoring him and laughing when he get so frustrated that no one is answering him to anything.
HOW TO TALK WHEN YOU'RE IN A MARATHON?
Okayla, for us it was walkathon all the way. But still, I need to save my energy to finish the "race" ma.
Oh and we find it really difficult to reach the finish line. It was so far! 10kn seems like an easy task for us in the beginning, but believe it or not. We were the few last (if not last, but we kinda think that we were the last) in our 10km category to finish.
We took two hours to finally end it. TWO HOURS!
And what's worse is that the 10km fun-runners passed us like nobody's business. So paised when we walked to the right side where the sign says "10km/Half Marathon" and on the left was the sign that says, "Full Marathon"!
WE WERE THE ONLY TWO HUMANS WALKED PASSED THAT SIGN! *embarrased*
We did finish though we never get any medal or free bananas or fee cereals. Ain't nobody got time for that.
Just when we thought the worse is no more. We then realized we had to walk back to Krystal Point to meet with my sister. And then only we actually started running for a while, until both our legs couldn't take it anymore.
BEST FEELING IS WHEN YOU OVER-WALKED YOUR LEGS AND YOU FINALLY GET TO SIT DOWN AND NOT MOVE A SINGLE MUSCLE.
Since it's Sunday, we of course rushed to church after having no-shampoo-no-shower-gel-bath (kidding! I did use all the shampoo and body soap. I'm not sure about his though! HAHA). Oh, and despite all that rushing from south side, we were still earlier than Nic! Booyahh! :)
Oh, such a healthy Sunday.
p.s I no longer want to just walk in a marathon (that's if I still actually want to join..)
