Good weather before the race, no rain on Saturday night, a bit humid at starting. Strong wind when I reached 12km mark, felt cold. But the wind was blowing reverse direction with me, make me feel hard to move when I run downhill. Heavy rain started when I reached 14km, run the remaining 7km under heavy downpour.
When reached the Queensbay roundabout and running towards finishing line, saw Jia Wei was wearing rain coat, holding umberlla to snap my photo, deeply appreciated him. Can't see other official photograher along the last few hundred meter, and also no timer displays on the finishing arc.
Crossing finishing line with 1'47:00, mission for my 3rd sub 1:45 in AIMS certified Half Marathon failed.
My split time:
0 - 10 km : 00'48:22 ---> 00'48:22
10-18 km : 00'42:20 ---> 01'30:00
18-21.17 km : 00'16:18 ---> 1'47:00
