Report: Bareno Run

By Aiman Cheah

Event: Bareno Run 2010
Venue: Bukit Jalil National Stadium, Kuala Lumpur
Date: 14 March 2010 | 7.00 a.m.
Category: 15km Junior Veteran

I had signed up for this race when I collected my New Balance 30km Run back in January. I only realised that I had opted for the 15km run when Hafis (CAR113) asked me which category I would be running during race pack collection on Friday. Oh dear, how would I fare in the race?

Hardly had training. I had practically forced myself to run on Saturday
albeit only for 4.2km and walking for 2.1km. I took about 33 minutes to
complete the 4.2km race.

I was a little bit tired on race day. My target was just to finished the race in one piece - 2 hours would do. However, I surprised myself with such a 'good' race. I started off well. Thanks to Appalaidoo who managed to psyche me. Running behind him, I had a good feeling.

It was close to my normal pace when I was fit. It was amazing. I took a cup of water at the first water station. I stopped and took power gel at the second water station only to find out that it was only about 7.5km. Oh, oh.... wrong race strategy. It would be best to do so at the 10th km.

I caught up with some of my Chap Ayam runners. That must be very encouraging! I also overtook Ryan Teoh (PM17) before Bukit Jalil Park. Mr Lee Yee Sum(PM12) was just about 10m in front of me before entering the Park. I knew I would not last the pace but would be very happy if I could at least maintained the pace for 10km.

I began to walk and jog in the park and others started to overtake me. I felt it would be a great waste as only 100 medals were offered for my category. If I could at least 'protect' my position, I would definately get one.

The horror began just before the traffic lights after coming out of Bukit Jalil Park. I had a sharp pain on my left calf. Signal to slow down and immediately the right knee began to hurt. I had to reduce speed and in fact I stopped and walked many times.

Ryan Teoh overtook me and I knew he would finish strongly as usual. I was very relieved when I reaced Bukit Jalil Secondary School. I manged to jog all the way to the finishing line. No more burst of speed as I used to do.

I was pleasantly surprised to get a finishing card which showed number 37! Number 37 in 1:20:34. That was a very good timing considering my physical fitness. It was also my best race this year. On the positive note, I could have done some 10 minutes faster had I been fitter.

I should remain positive on my fitness as the Malaysian Masters is expected to be held in May. My aim would still to at least fight for the last podium finish as I expect a stronger field this year.

This year must be the craziest year for me - able to complete a 30km and 15km run with only a 4.2km mileage a week! It may give me the confidence in future but certainly not a recommended thing to do. I had sore muscles for two days after the 15km race which I had never experienced before when I had enough training.

Tadese smashes world half-marathon record in Lisbon

By Steven Mills, March 21st 2010

Eritrea’s Zersenay Tadese romped to victory at the EDP Lisbon Half Marathon in a world record of 58:23

ZERSENAY TADESE continued to establish his dominance on the road-racing circuit as the 28-year-old smashed Sammy Wanjiru’s world half-marathon record of 58:33 at the EDP Lisbon Half Marathon.

The four-time world half-marathon champion blasted to victory in a new world record of 58:23 which corresponds to a ten-second revision on Wanjiru’s three-year-old world record and as well as this feat, Tadese also lowered Haile Gebrselassie’s world 20km record en route to victory.

The Eritrean passed through the 20km point in 55:21, which was 27 seconds faster than Gebrselassie’s world record.

Tadese will now finalise his preparations for next month’s Virgin London Marathon and despite failing to complete the distance on his debut last year, Tadese was not perturbed by this as the world 10,000m silver medallist said he wants to attack the world record.

Sammy Kitwara from Kenya took second in 59:47 while world marathon silver medallist Emmanuel Mutai completed the podium in third in 60:03.

Olympic silver medallist Jaouad Gharib from Morocco placed sixth in 60:33.

Report: Tesco Walk for Schools

By Aiman Cheah

Date: 07 March 2010 | 8:00am
Venue: Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur
Distance: 4.5km (Walk)
Fee: RM10 (Adult) and RM5 (Kid)

I was looking forward to this walk although it was not a competitive walk. I went to collect the t-shirt by 6.30 a.m. as I do not want to wake my children up so early. It would be just right if I left home by 7.15 a.m. and took my wife to her class before heading to Dataran Merdeka.

When I reached Dataran Merdeka, the participants were just flagged off. Any way, there were still many who had just arrived and joined us. Mr Tey was busy taking photographs and took one for us.

As the walk progressed, we were overtaken slowly. Mr Chandra offered us to take the ambulance because he 'pitied' Akmal. We were the last participants at that point of time. I was sure that he could make it. He had done 2.1 km a few times. No doubt that the distance for this event was more than double of what he had usually done.

I chose to walk along the pavement instead of the road. I don't quite like walking with the flow of the traffic. Afiqah was excited when she saw a caterpillar hanging down with its 'thread'. There were rows of hibiscus plants along the road and most of the leaves were infested with caterpillars. I pluck a few leaves to show them the caterpillars in the rolled leaves. We didn't stop too long and could still see the participants before us.

I was glad that Akmal wanted me to carry him when we turned into Jalan Parlimen. As I walk faster, we managed to close the gap witht the group of family of 5 in front of us. Finally we overtook them. Afiqah was so happy because we were no long the last and suggested that we should also overtake another group of family of 3. We did that just before we turned into Jalan Raja. I let Akmal walk to the finishing line to collect his own certificate of participation.
