While my friends did the Singapore Marathon , Macau Marathon and some others the Salomon Trail run, I did a last minute registration for the Cuisine Marathon 2009 ! It wasn’t exactly a new event. It was organized a few times already, actually. Well, some race report right here.
Some fotos taken before the race. Cool graphics eh.. Photos Photoshoped.. Cuisine Marathon starting in 15 minutes. Trying to get my focus together. First time doing the Cuisine Marathon. Haven’t got enough training for this one. Will take it easy..
Here’s the start line. Pretty fancy and colourful. Marathons shouldn’t be boring right ? I’m all set for this point. No need to warm up for marathons. Did a 3k day before.
The organizers did a good job with the distance markers. Clear and visible markers ! This foto was taken at the 19km mark.System still fresh. Keeping the pace steady.
Half of the course completed. Phew…Kaki a bit goyang, but I find myself overtaking some familiar faces. Slowly n steady Julie..
Seeing stars, sugars and maple syrup already..and peanuts, peach, vanilla, ice-cream.. humm… no, they didn’t provide that at the feed station.. It was pure imagination that kept me going.. i guess..!
At the 35km mark… ! The heat is getting unbearable.. So thirsty…
