Blast Off! Posted by Picasa

All the categories started simultaneously. We were flagged off by Datuk Dr. Ling Liong Sik at 7:30sharp. I jogged slowly with Poh and YK initially but decided to allow them to go on their own paces. Both were new to road races.

We were given 2 hours to complete the run. Plenty of time if you ask me. You could even stop by coffee shop for a cuppa during the run and still come back in time to collect the medal. One thousand medals awaited the finisher. So, I was not too worried about speed and enjoy the beautiful Sunday morning run in Ipoh.

The route took us along Jalan Hospital, to Jalan Raja Di Hilir, passing by many religious houses - mosque. Siamese temple, Indian temple, Chinese temple before making a turn at Canning Garden Church into some housing estate where we were given a hair band at the checkpoint. Saw Pacesetter ex-president, Mr. Wan running on the opposite side of the road.
