Safra Singapore Bay Run & Army Half Marathon, an event that I wish to join since few year ago, and I make it this year, as most of the time I am working in Southern of Malaysia, just take this opportunity to join.

Flag off early at 5:15am, good to avoid from sunshine if can do 1:45. I know it is impossible for me, but I still try very hard, follow 1:45 pacer and ahead them until 8km, I know that I am push myself too much, and  I just recover from flu few days ago, listen to my body and slow down my pace.

Drink station is sufficient enough, almost every 2km++, two banana stations, and about 8 or 9 performance team along the route.

Crossed finishing line with 1'52:49, my PB (Personal Bad) timing since 2009 in half marathon. Worst than Sundown 2010.

The only photo of me during this race

As usual, SinKaPo event give a nice and good quality medal

First half marathon event in Seberang Perai area, organized by MPSP with assist by a group of runners from Penang. I am proud to be a small part of the committee team as well, join the team as survey run runner, and photographer after my run.

I've run the route before during survey run, but it wasn't an advantage for me too, lucky all the way flat so that I manage to do with better timing.

4 drink station served water, prefer isotonic drink will be better. Flag off time at 5:00am is good for runners but is a disadvantage for photographer when snap photo.

Be the event photographer with bro Tey Eng Tiong
