Adidas King of the Road...but in reality..





With all the biking cronies.. ( gee.. camera phone aint too good in the dark...) Gunter, Adrien, me, Arif. Adeline, Senn , Jaja , i bet there are more out there i have not met...


A beautiful sunrise view and that's Jazemine heading to the horizon..


Senn moving slowly but surely..

IN REALITY.. I BITE THE DUST at km 7

Everyone is running,music thumping my legs just aint moving..Felt like lead and my knee starts to hurt.,Jason,Jezamine,Joanne,Lizzie,Ashley, Adeline , Arif met me , holler at me..sacrifice a few second to pace me..Met arif in the the final 3 km whom got into some feet tendon problem so we decideed to walk.. Thanks...its good to know that there are friends looking out for ya.

Finding myself seriously drained after the ride to PD with less that 10 hours to Adidas KOTR, I felt its more like :


lets see.. 1.45 cut off time.. to my actual time of 2.45 wow.. my worst ever, never have i gotten this knackered with along side an problematic knee... today just didn't shine for me but its not like i cant handle it...the Pain doesn’t go away and just gets worse as you continue. I stopped running and started walking immediately. I walked for about 5 minutes, then tried to run again. I got about a minute of running in and then the pain hit again. I walked.


Its a cue to really rest my knee....this time seriously no more fucking around.....

OH yeah and to those who aren't so forgiving.. thinking its an execuse....Come.. LETS PLAY...again... :) after i heal of course..

Update 9.00 pm : Went to have a check up , it seems i've got Patellar Tendonitis ...was given some painkiller and anti inflammation pills...

Never have i experience finishing so far back and with no medal... It humbles you, it gives a new sense of respect to those whom are determined to complete than to compete. Especially the older folks and to those going "one" up for the first time....with sheer teeth grinding and grit.

So go ahead.. i'll catch up... just gimme some time to recover..
