Race recap : Run for River 10K trail

there I was again, signed up Run For River UI 2017. My virgin half marathon was in this race as well. this time, I opted for 10K trail.

Trail?

Yes, UI has its man-made forest and I’ve run there!

in short, I made Acha to sign up for this category. this anak mall garis keras agreed.

So, there I was, september 10th 2017, going back in start line again! ich bin zurück!! And owh, besides 10K trail, there were Half Marathon, 10K road and 5K.

10K trail with brown bib, HM with red, 10K road with yellow. none of Trojan Runners participate in 5K.

Here’s the recap:

  • 10K trail suppose to start at 6.00am, yet, not until 6.15 that the race start. i found it is a bit weird as, Half Marathon Race start later. It is very common longer distance start earlier :-/
  • first 2Km was road, had no clue where it was. It was a U-turn Approaching Km 2, a runner in front of me made a short cut! Ada aja yang nge-cut rute, curang. he didn’t know that first check point was at the U-turn! shame on him!
  • entering Km 2 was the forest area. well, ja, I’ve run here before, yet the route a bit different. We run besides a lake this time! I also run with Maktin and Aby, the later is a runner I met during Tour de Ambarukmo! We paused a LOT to take pictures. Even we asked marshals to do so! hahahahahah!!
  • Lucky, I brought my water blade. i was very thirsty after Km 3 , and still couldn’t find water station. not until Km 5 or six. Where the lake is! Whoaaa! i love the sun ray shinning thru the leaves. it was beautiful!

  • I filled up my water blader. Then continued to run. My right foot still hurt. damn plantar!

  • on the way to Km 7, near the famous Universitas Indonesia marka, there was a water station. i was tired…took a break! And doing silly things!

  • total trail is only 7.5 Km I guess, so 1 KM before finish line, we went back to campus area. Running in road again. owh, I use road shoes this time as I left my trail shoes in Ambarawa!

  • I’m a sloooowwww runner, it didn’t surprise me, I met many half marathon runners on the way to finish line! Hahahahahahaahhah. they went 21K and I did 10!
  • so there! die dritte medal der Jahre!

I haven’t check the result. it took almost 2 hours for me to complete the course. but I was very happy with this race! So much fun! Will be back again next year!

BSJ – Jakarta Race Series 5K race recap 

This is  my fourth year participating on this event whilst the third for my kids. The event suppose to be held on feb 28th, unfortunately it was raining and lightning on the D day so the organizer canceled the race and May 15th was the replacement.

It is a must do race for me, simply because we’d run in Bintaro! Kampung sendiri 😉
Cince kiddo#1 would have Ujian Nasional the following day, I asked her to stay at home. So  there were only me and kiddo #2 joined the race.
Since this was a postponed-race,there were only few runners, really reduce in number but not quality.

Anyway, race start at 6.45 am and the route was exactly the same like it was years ago!
at km 1.5, it was downhill and slippery area. It was raining hard last night, Kevin fell down and his right knee was bleeding.

He cried a bit, I asked him if you want to finish the race just walk.

However, he did run and left his overweight mother behind.
There was water station at km 2.5, I took a sip as kiddo#2 took my hand tumbler with him. I couldn’t caught his sight ever since! To make story short, it took 39 mins something for me to cross the finish line which means few mins faster for kiddo#2. He said it was 37 mins something when he crossed the finish line.

 

about to cross the finish line

Last year, at the same event, it took 40:11 for him to cross the finish line.

Seine neur Best Zeit –his new PB.

 

Bintaro Trojan Runners

 

There were 2 Busselton Ironman Finishers  (the city is in Western Australia, if you are wondering) and IM 70.3 finisher in the picture. While Pak John (the white man, UK origin) got 2nd Podium, 19 mins for 5K. The rest are just-for-fun runners 😉
On the way home, kiddo#2 said he breath better. I told him that is because his swimming class. I sent him to a swimming class to support his soccer class. The swimming course supervised by Elsa Manora, yeah…the ex national athlete whose oldest sister was my all time national athlete favorite! Ratu Kolam di jamannya. If you are in my age, you can guess who I am referring to!

Anyway, I offered him to take another class, so it will be twice a week, but he said No.

oh well…

Sentul Half Marathon Race Recap

Endlich! Die erste race des Jahre!  After 120 days, Ich bin zurück! I signed up for shorter distance tho and Thanks God I did! Tell you why! A continue of midlife crisis #teeeheeee really made all hell broke loose!

Lack of practice, mood drop, bad food intake, didn’t do good on something I’ve prepared for month. meh! And  honestly speaking, I didn’t prepare anything for this race. Just miss having pic of me with finisher medal posted in Every soc-med I have! hahahah! bear with me!

March 27th, 2016

Woke up at 2.30 am after only 2 hours of sleep because Valas would  picked me up at 3.30 am about the same time, maling pulang. Arrggh!  thanks to midlife crisis-rewriting novel kehidupan!  You gave me sleepless night:((

Fortunately, she was with Lora so she allowed me to have extra hour of sleep. Another hour, we arrived at Sentul Convention Centre  (SCC) where the race took place and had sholat shubuh there. After checking other Bintaro Trojan Runners where about, warming up, group photos (of course!) we went to starting pen.

The Half Marathon distance started at 6.00 am! SHARP!

Another 15 mins, for us, the 10K runners! yeah! I made  a pledge with Maktin and Acha we would stick together until finish line do us part!

Anyway, told ja! The starting pen start at SCC complex, I learn the route days before to expect the killer hill and wonder how the race organizer would  work with the traffic as it would be some intersections!

It was….bad! Honestly speaking!

here is the recap :

  • For 10 K route, 500 meter from Hotel Haris all the way to the round about and turn left, passing  Giant Hypermarket straight ahead   to sentul city/taman budaya.
  • The first intersection and there were metersssssss of car lines. Waiting for runners. Of course, some of them get upset! They have waited for 10 mins! This is our first hill before entering the gate to Sentul City area. I wasn’t surprise! been here hundreds of time 😀

 

First Hill

  • Next intersection was just near the gate. The organizer closed the road for quite some time  and I hate the sounds of blowing horn. I heard one of the marshals  speak over the TOA even said “Pak, malu sama pakaian ngancungin saya jari tengah!” bahahahhaha. So there is a mosque near the gate, seems one of the jamaah  still wearing peci ,sarong and baju koko, felt annoyed by the traffic! Not sure why, don’t care either.
  • In my surprise, we make a left turn a little after that! Aha! this is new route for me!!! Never ran in this area before, here’s a another hill! I think it was in  Km 3-4! ah, beautiful!

MakTin on the (hilly) Move!

regram from @mesarace. We saw a photographer and MADE him took our picture! It was a sharp hilly track, we gave our best smile and (for sure) cursed after that :))

  • Setelah ada tanjakan, pasti ada turunan! And yeah…yay! Downhill!!!!!
IMG_8348

Yay! downhill yaaaayyy! *NOT*

  • It is in Km 5 probably, we are out of this housing complex went to main road again. Another intersection, but there were less cars this time. Probably they already learn the situation.  yep, down and up and up and up again turn left before ruko-ruko !Maktin and Acha had left me when I took picture down hill.
  • I caught with them again in third water station, and finally! they offered isotonic drink! Seeeeee! There were no isotonic drink in previous WS. I was tired then fortunately someone offered me date! I took one.  Meine Gott! Ich hatte Glück. Even Maktin forget to bring ones. She’s the one who always prepared extra food for us! I feel like I had extra energy! Let alone the salt stick!
  • Down hill passing the famous Ah Pong, before that I met Rika. So I jog with her. It was 7.30 am something and sun shines VERY bright! It as HOT! HOT! HOT! I cursed yet feel lucky that I signed up for 10K! bahahhaahhahahah
  • Another 1 km, we went straight back to SCC again. Another intersection, but this time was also with good (traffic management)
  • Well, as already posted in my Instagram , we crossed the finished line together and result said
    • Acha 1:27:03, Maktin 1:27:04, Sikiky 1:27:03! Ich finde es süß. Sweet, isn’t it? hahahahah  Rika 1:27:29

Golden Girls

Happiness is the moment you see the finish line after cursing like 13,456 times “Set dahhh…nih tanjakan ngga selesai selesai sikk” 

IMG_8354

First Medal in 2016

  • Owh, the elevation gain for 10K was 100 m something while it was 300m for HM.
  • And…while I was waiting for Valas to cross the finish line, it was like 8 am already. I saw many speechless  or may be palm faces =)) for HM runners . Heat was unbearable! for hundreds of time I  was thankful that I signed up for 10K! It took 3 hours for Valas to cross the finish line!
  • So, in my opinion, the race organizer was so-so! Marshals were great tho! they still waiting for all HM runners to cross the finish mat eventhou it was almost 10 am. anyway, due to its brutal hilly track, Seems I won’t be back again for longer distance 😀

However, i think I still love running, I’ll be back again oh…well perhaps! but no more long run =))

Bis Später! 

 

2 X U compression Race Recap

OOT : sorry for the protected post on my previous post. you know where to reach me to get the password  if you want to read it.

Allright, where are we?

(in my opinion) this was the most long awaited race! The famous 2XU compression Run finally in Jakarta! Years ago, the 2XU race in Singapore were (and I think still ) very famous for Indonesia runners, as we barely had running races! Let alone the Half Marathon distance. IN 2014 (or was it in 2013) they even have the Full Marathon distance. I think one of most favorite ones besides Sun Down Marathon and the famous Singapore Standard Chattered  Marathon that will be held next two weeks.

back to tanah air, while the famous Adidas King Of The Road has been absent for two years (including in all neighbouring countries where they usually held the race such in singapore, KL, Manila and Bangkok) and seems that, after the accident to one of the runners last year, no more Standart Chattered Half Marathon which already held since 2011! that explains why this race would be “sangat ditunggu tunggu” beides Nike Bajak Jakarta, perhaps.
Thus, when The famous koko Willy Sanjaya  sent the teaser, guess we (runners) went nut! the well known brand finally has its races in Jakarta.
when the registration opened, as expected the server went down :))

It was sold out in few hours and koh Willy gave another slots…and another and another.

to make it short, I signed up for HM distance that cost IDR 575K something,  and would received socks from Newton, 2XU race tee and 2XU finisher tee for HM distance only.

hence, that’s explain why this race is famous! ngarepin kaos 2XU brayyyyy!

Fast forward, Unfortunately, I  didn’t get a change to have a long run after my Full Marathon. longest distance was only 7Km when I had my morning run with Ejah at CFD.
When I was a volunteer for The Jakarta Marathon, oct 26th 2015, I felt Jakarta’s temperature was at its worst. No raining for weeks and it was — even though not as thick as in Sumatra islannd — actually sky was covered by haze! I barely saw sky crappers from distance. Trust me, as non private cars users in Jakarta on weekdays, I do look up the sky from pedestrian bridge, etc. At this point i was thinking of giving my BIB.

Yet, couple of days before D days, rainy days had come. I could see a blue sky again from my front porch. Thus, I decided to go.
Taking taxi to cut the hustle, I picked Mas Eri and Pak Donny after shubuh pray, and as expected traffic to AEON Mall was heavy! It was 5.15 am were still in the cab, while race would start at 5.30am.

I was a bit nervous since…I brought a bag with me. changing clothes and power bank 🙂 my mistake! eri said jokingly

“udah loe bawa lari aja tuh tas”

#pret!

and what is race without “eh ya ampun, gw lupa kalau…”

I left my sunglasses this time! meh! running in BSD and forget sunnies. BIG MISTAKE! 

Anyway, I managed to drop the bag 5 mins before start and met friends from Bintaro Trojan Runners at start line
5.30 am sharp, the race began. Here’s my recap:

– i ran with Evi and Rika, also from Bintaro Trojan Runners. Evi just had her virgin FM I Jakarta with a respective  time for me :)) It was her first FM and di jakarta boooo matahari ada 17 langit coklat ketutup debu!

– first 5K was oke with me. Evi was pacering me. it was 38mins something for 5K

– at 8K something I took salt stick, I felt body temperature increase already
– before 10K, I said Evi to go ahead. I felt so tired. I started to walk
– Anyway it’s BSD, yet, good job grom RunID, the most professional race organizer for me, they creates new loop, new route. walaupun view nya itu itu aja sik. tapi rutenya baru, they always come up with new route! good job!
– at Km 15, I really lost mood for running. my sister passed me, she had toilet break previously. at this point, I walked. anyway sponge were available  and it was heaven!
– water station were nice! every 2Km i think! thanks God! there were like 17 suns above BSD! Panasssssss! I took an ice block and put in my jersey!!! it melted right away!

Yisca sent me this. have no idea where was it

– at Km 17, I saw the opposite way, my fast runners friend like bu thya, Pak Giri, Valast, Diana, Deio were…walking! they were at km 20’s!

i was surprise,

“panas! malas lari” mostly said so.
– There was a U  turn at Km 19, I saw Namira from the other side, I waited for her. so i wont get boring walking alone.
– we managed to take pic with this sign. bahahahahahhahaha.

look at back ground. It’s like in Bahrain instead of BSD

i saw many finishers cheered us and said “hayuh, finisher tee nya keren lo”

we threw smile and walked, they were very sweet. Few seconds after that  “rapihin dulu penampilan, biar finish kece”
there it is! Alhamdulillah ngga pakai kram aja sih! 3 hours 15 mins!!! Bahahahhahah! sure it wasn’t my PB!
anyway, gw ngga mau bela diri of my ugly performance. never do strength training and my bike has been too long in the garage. skip swimming class soooo many times.

I was lack of practice, I didn’t pay attention to my intake! It was also a slap on the face that I must watch my intake again as I’m not getting any younger.

I didn’t drink electrolyte D-3 like I used to before long distance run, i (again) consume trash like candies and flavored-bottled-water, oily and processed food, dan lain sebagainya.

there’s always lesson to learned on every race. 🙂
and anyway, seems I wont sign up for any race in BSD again :)) until those trees have grown BIG! next 5 years perhaps? hahahah
I think I am only good running in four seasons countries, however my Bank account doesn’t say so. TEEEE HEEEEE!

medal is nice though!

until my next race ! I signed up for Tahura Trail 21km next January. Wish me luck!

Tahura Trail Run 2015

Seperti yang gw cerita di sini, we were back to Bandung to do

our 3rd Race together,

my 2nd Trail Race,

1 st Race in 2015. 

Tahun lalu gw daftar 10K namun gagal hadir. Tadinya gw sempat mikir pengen ambil HM hari Sabtunya, akibat susah move on dari BTS 30K  Indahnya ibu pertiwi ini….lalu besoknya ambil family 6K sama anak-anak. Tapi kayaknya malasssssss yaaa long run lagi.

Ternyata abang sepupu gw yang tinggal di Pekanbaru ikutan race ini juga, blio ambil Half Marathon. Tadinya mau janjian ketemu (kita terakhir ketemu 1999! :p) di Tahura pas dia kelar race gw ambil race pack. Tapi karena KetKet and Topik datang duluan ke Bandung,they helped me with the race pack.  They took 17K, KetKet first trail race. Hasil sikiky’s bootcamp juga mamak anak satu ini. Berkali kali gw siksa nemenin gw ke Sentul dan selalu mau aja gw tipu *pissss yoooo*

Niwei, we stayed in Jayakarta hotel, hamdalah di upgrade ke suites. Ngga perlu sempit-sempitan deh! And as I promised my daughter, Oktober lalu, iyesss…situ boleh belanja di Rumah Mode deh! Dianterin Lina, temen kantor gw yang lagi mudik ke kota kembang ini. Haslik, bokek gw!  Malamnya sempat ke Caffe Benne juga di Dago. aih, ai laik dis cafe a lot deh! Suka banget sama Mint Latte-nya. Sukanya lagi karena dibayarin Lina #eh

2015/01/img_1111.jpg

2015/01/img_1104.jpg

Anyway, drama sebelum tidur si adek kena sariawan gitu. agak-agak malas makan, gw kasih vitamin C aja.

besok paginya berangkat jam 6.45 walo start 7.30 untuk Family category and hotel ama Tahura sebenarnya cuma 2,5 km. takut macet cynnn! Pas mau ke luar hotel, gw liat pasangan suami istri dengan attire mau perang, eh, trail race. Kita angkut ajah. Aslik, gw lupa nama mas-nya. Nama istrinya kalo ngga salah sih Miza or Missa gitu. Orang Jogja kerja di Balikpapan! gw pikir abang gw doank yang kerajinan datang dari Pekanbaru ke Bandung. Turn out , I was wrong again.

Pas turun dari mobil, lihat dua sosok yang gw rindu-rindukan *apasih* Om Vecky dan Mita! wooohooo…Mita ini, yang setempat tidur ama gw BTS 30K kemarin! yes, they flew all the way from Surabaya.  Pas juga ketemu Chia, tentulah foto bareng kitah. Ntah mengapa ketiga hamba insani jagoan nge-trail ini ambil 17Km. Mita finsiher RAR lhooo! warrrbiasaaaah!

2015/01/img_1201.jpg

Yah begitulah, reuni dengan runners lain yang jujurly ngga banyak gw kenal *heheheheh*. Sempet ketemu Pak Adi , pegawai  BII kenal pas di HM di UI, terkahir ketemu pas HM Jakmar kemaren, he didn’t finish his first FM tho! Ngga banyak Bintaro Runners yang ikut, in fact cuma gw, Chaidir sang ironman yang HM juga kemarennya 10K, Paipo ambil HM  and si bisep ambil 10K

Start jam 7.00, 17km mulai. Om Vecky sempat bilang “jangan pulang dulu loe, tungguin gw!” bah!

dan….flag off 2 category berikutnya lebih cepat 5 menit aja gitu….

anyway..

IMG_1127Sama kayak Februari tahun lalu…si adek melesat duluan aja gitu….*wooot*. Bah! cita cita gw jalan santai plus tafakur alam sama anak anak GATOT! Gagal total. Mana si kakak drama pulak. Itu seluruh attire yang dia pakai punya gw! -___-

Terus, doi pake rok yang pas lari ternyata  agak kegedean *yaeyaaalahh* Ya sud lah, kita jalan-jalan lari kecil sajah. Sementara adek udah ngga terlihat lagi.  Rutenya, tentu saja di Tahura bercampur sama pengunjung lainnya. Water station tiap 2-3 km gitu kali ya. Gw sendiri sih (si kakak dink) bawa hydropack dan hand bottle dari Nathan.

IMG_1160Serulah, I like trail running! Rutenya dari start menuju Goa Belanda itu (?) terus lewat jalan setapak yang mendaki menurun mendaki lagi menurun lagi dan seterusnya.   Sempat juga ketemu Mr. monkeys. Banyak banget keluarga kecil bawa balita-nya. Komentar anak balitanya juga suka lucu dan menghibur. Pas gw di Km 2-an gitu kali ya…udah ketemu potensi pemenang kategori 10K aja. Ngesot dikit udah ada potensi pemenang kategori 17Km yang hamdalah, orang Indonesia semua :). Gw juga sempat ketemu Idir yang kira-kira di posisi ke 6 ato 7 lah buat 10K.

Pas on the way km 3, penangkaran rusa apa ya namanya, gw ketemu si adek. gw suruh tunggu, adek nolak “males ah, kakak lama!”. mzzzzzzzzttttttttt….

Dan ada anak muda gw inget banget namanya Megan bilang “adeknya saya jagain aja tante”. tawakal aja dah gw, anak gw on good hands -__-. gw lupa tukeran no telpon mbak megan ini, tapi kita semua emang dilengkapi road ID sih kalo pergi-pergi.  Termasuk papa juga beliin.  Kalo liat race result sih, yang deket sama si adek waktu finishnya namanya Megan Nandia. Duh, adik cantik, ma kasih banyak ya… I owe you!

IMG_1166

Terus pas km 3 check point, kita di kasih gelang. There goes the steep slippery hill, Ini gw mikir si adek kepeleset ngga ya pas di sini! (foto kiri bawah). Pas sudah 5,5 km agak beda sama rute datang, kita diarahkan ke kanan dan….haishhhhhh ini kok ngga sampe sampe sik! sementara gw udah yakin si adek kelar, gw masih harus motivasi kakak.  meh…

Lalu tetiba ada peserta 17km sok akrab negur gw “wah ketemu lagi kita. hayuk dek, dikit lagi. Adeknya mana?” gw sempat mikir doi siapa…ternyata yang tadi pagi gw angkut. Bahhahaha kacau juga memori nih!

Hampir 2 jam, selesai juga gw dan si kakak menyelesaikan rintangan ini. Pictures taken by Bella, from Bandung Branch. Thx yooo! Si kakak terlihat lelah! -__-

Based on Garmin it said 7.20-an km instead of 6km. Bonusnya banyak aja ya…..

Pas gw finish mbak Ina Budiyani juga finish (17km). She won the first place! Padahal seinget gw baru kelar NusantaRun 3 minggu an yang lalu lari dari Bogor ke Bandung 120-an km. Sakti yeeee

I was in rush nyariin si adek. Area finishnya rapih banget menurut gw. Di pagarin, jadi begitu kelar  race ngga ada hallmark moment biar ngga banyak orang berkumpul. Peserta harus jalan lagi buat ambil air minum, pisang, dan jalan lagi ke depan untuk ambil medali. Lalu gw melihat adek duduk dekat tenda medali ditemanin Megan dan kawan-kawannya Jadi kalo kategori family semuanya harus hadir buat tuker medal, buktinya dari gelang yang disematkan pas check point.

dan akhirnya gw ktemua juga sama Uda Engga, abang gw itu. hahahhahah doi balik lagi biar ketemu sama adek dan keponakan yang belum pernah ketemu sama si Omnya ini.
2015/01/img_1279.jpg

I broke my promise, gw ngga nunggui wakil Mad Demon Surabaya a.k.a  om vecky and Mita. Sorry yak!

Rush back to hotel to have breakfast (ogah rugi), anak-anak sempat renang dan check out dan….Rumah Mode lagi kakak!!!!

Baju si adek yang gw beliin yang gw kira pas ternyata nyari kekecilan yang gw kira masih kegedean malah pas di badan! gee, i forgit he put on weight!

There goes our first race in 2015! More to come

Standard Chattered Singapore Marathon 2014

My second Full Marathon, my first overseas race

Jadi, setelah gw tau gw disuruh berangkat, gw iseng browsing ada ngga race selama gw disana. Ternyata the gold class marathon is held.  Lalu berkontempelansi HM ato FM ya…

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b5f/4926558/files/2014/12/img_9249-0.png

cuma neh, past si kacrut-kacrut akan komen “kalo HM di bulevard (bintaro) aja”, jadilah gw sign up buat FM

Di hari kamis dan hujan pulang jam kantor, gw langsung ke Changi Expo  tempat pengambilan race pack karena satu line (green line) dari Raffles City (MRT depan kantor) ke Chagi Expo *eits sounds keceh ya?* ^_^

mind the wrinkles, I didn’t apply anti aging cream or what so ever

Race Recap

bosen

bosen

bosen

saking bosennya, gw mampir di toko kecil buat istirahat, curhat abis abisan di grup hahahhaha

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b5f/4926558/files/2014/12/img_0296-0.jpg

FYI: during exercise that requires endurance, having that bottle in the right is allright. Make sure it is un-carbonized first. To note, Idir said they served Coke at IM Langkawi

Note : in case you didn’t know IM stands for Iron Man. Noooo. not the movie….

sorry, it’s just me ! I didn’t enjoy this race.

Kata teman teman Bintaro Trojan Runners mungkin gw jenuh lari jauh aja. Kelar FM di bali lalu BTS 30K lanjut SCMS 2014

race pack collection yang rapih sampe 60 booth kalo ngga salah, rute yang steril (STERIL  yaaa…) plus sufficient WATER STATION (literally WATER station) tentunya jadinya  plus point.

being ndeso I am, gw lebih suka race di desa macam di Bromo Marathon ato at least Bali Kemaren 🙂 bahkan waktu banyak yang nyela (justru dari yang ngga ikut) BTS kemaren, gw jauhhhhhh lebih menikmati siksaan pas di BTS. So i guess i won’t be back for next year untuk perbaiki timing (oh, I didn’t get my PB off course). They said FM is a mental game, mine is dropped at KM 8 already. So it was really pain in the butt to spank my butt back 😀 but heck, being DNF is not an option, at least not for this race. :))

so, there will be no race recap, just take a look at my flickr account for pictures :p

Next overseas race?
Yeah, (may be) there will be one!

Samsung S4 Runseries Race and Sentul trip

in order to have stories on most of my race, so here I go 😉
minggu kemaren gw ikut lomba terakhir atau ketiga SamsungS4 run series ini.
Seri pertama ngga ikut karena ikutan Bromo Maratahon 10K, yang kedua malas karena…BSD! :p
Udah boseeennn :))

Lomba ketiga ini lokasinya di Epicentrum. Ya gitu deh..biar ngga bokek dan bisa latihan long run, dipilih-pilih aja racenya 🙂

Like any other race yang EOnya dipegang run ID, race ini hampir tanpa cela. Gw bilang hampir karena….water stationnya salah tempat! Adanya di 2,5K dan 3K baru ada lagi di Km8! Sinting ah!
Asli gw walaupun menikmati race ini, kesel banget karena haus.
i didn’t bring my own tumbler karena yakin water stationnya memadai. Tidak ada yang jualan pulak karena strerilnya jalan
-___-
