jakarta race series -ragunan zoo race recap

long pending posting

Actually, I wanted to run this track from last year (May 2013) as my first race with my kiddos and aiming for family fun run.
But kiddo#1 was planning for her Umroh Trip with my parents the next Tuesday, so I cancelled to avoid unexpected things like animal string or twist ankle or else, that may made her journey uneasy:

unlike our firt race in BIS last February, kakak sign up for fun run (2,5km) because Icha and Khaira only run 2,5km.
while adek stick to the 5km because

Fun run buat anak kecil sih…”
Yeah rite, kiddo -___-

Anway, we arrived quite early 6.am something in Ragunan. we still have to pay for enterance fee.
Quite long way to start line about 15 mins walk.
there was mandiri run took place at the same day, and barely people I know join this race. my sister joined Mandiri Run as well.

i guess ones who join this race were ones who want to take their little ones as well.
At 6.30 am something, the event start with Zumba dance. Very fun!then we were asked to gather in starting pen. kakak has reunited with the Trojan Teens.

6.45 sharp, there we go running. i was talking to Sonya, a british who also live in Bintaro and realize pace might quite fast for adek. So I slowed down, but adek seemed alright.
km 1 done, I offer him to take picture with marker, he refuse. However, he was thirsty every 5 mins I guess that we almost run out for water.
considering we’d run in Zoo area, I didn’t bring any money -___-
My bad I can’t buy aqua. None familiar within my sight as well to lend me money.


thanks God he was oke until Km 2.5 where the water station was.
track was undulating, but kiddo #2 seems didn’t care as he still run not walk. he walk only to have a sip of water.

i love the track, it was my first time running in zoo, i always want to run this place from long time ago, with lot of trees and man-made lake. Perfect run for one sunday morning.
i also had mother and son converation #tsahhhh 😀
As it was raining the night before, some track was slippery. Many-many times I have to remind adek to slow down.

500m before finish line was quite steep
Hill,I told him finish line may be around the corner. Adek told me
” Bunda di belakang aja, adek mau finish duluan”.



he shoved 2 mins from his last race.
Our official time 43 something.

Then I rush to start line to see kakak


i saw Rika another friend from Bintaro who also took her daughter with her doing 2,5km Fun Run.
rika offer me to watch over kiddo#2 so I can ran with kakak.
And so I did.
it wasn’t 1km yet, the slippery downhill track made kakak fell down.
oooo emmm geee
She was crying hard
A marshal came and offer the medic staff.
Kakak insist to finish her race

malu sama icha dan Khaira tampak ya
So we finish the run by walking.
Unlike her brother, she want me to finish first to take her pic at finish line. i did, but she seemed very hurt that Miftah, a friend I know during so many races, who again was a marshal help her to complete her run.


There it was.


Saking sepinya BTR yang ikut, langsung bubar. no group picture -___-
