Sundown Marathon 2016 (42km)

29 May 2016

My sixth full marathon. It’s amazing how time flies and how much more improvement I have had in a span of 3years. I started off at 6hrs plus for an FM, now, I am down to 4hours 48minutes. My time now is my new PB.

I opted to follow the 4hours 30minutes pacers but I entered the wrong pen and they started earlier. I couldn’t anymore run after them and reach them despite I tried to. Anyway, I may not have reached my secret aim last night, I was still a few minutes better than the last time which is still not so bad.

Sleepiness was ,as usual, my enemy in this race. In the morning, it’s heat, night time was the urge to sleep. At 34km, I almost wanted to take a nap, but I had to push. I was also having some discomfort in my lower abdomen because of PMS and the benches were calling me loudly, I almost succumb. Good thing the voice of the finish line was louder.

I will try better the next time! I know I’m close to my lifetime goal of sub 4hrs..haha

After the race, I went for the free massage which was surprisingly good. I wished it could have been longer. Haha

I am satisfied with everything!
