Race Report: New Year Newton Challenge 2012

Location: Bandar Kinrara, Puchong
Date/Time: 1st Jan 2012 @ 5:30am
Category: Men Open 25km
Bib: 1226
Distance: 24.49 km (by Garmin FR405)
Timing: 2'11:47 (Gun Time) /2'11:32 (Chip Time)
Average Pace: 5:23 per km
Rank: 55th

Not well prepared and knee pain, aim to do 2:20 initially, with slightly over distance like 2010, but end up with under distance this year.

Glad this year flag off at 5:30am, an hour earlier compare with previous year.

Started the multiple rolling hills after 4km until 20km, really suffer especially during down hill, knee pain after 14km onwards, sometimes have to run with one and half legs, not both legs.

Drink stations every 3.5km, mostly served water, only few isotonics drink after 13km, better than nothing.

Felt happy that I can crossed finishing line with sub 2:15, better than my expectation, but slightly under distance.

Switch myself from runner to photographer, but end up with forget to have group photo with my LLC gang...
