Below are the races that I have registered:
- Shape Run, Putrajaya. 11.8km on 14-July
- Sungai Petani Half Marathon on 01-September
- Taiping International Full Marathon on 16-September
One thing in common is all this 3 events are new to me, I have not join any of these events, I believe it would be a new experience in each of the race.
One thing that is playing in my mind is whether to do River Jungle Marathon (RJM) or King of The Road? Both of the events fall on the same day, I can only exist in one place at one time. As much as I want to join the RJM, because it is new to me, it is non-competitive, it is running in trail/jungle or more off-roads, but can I recover soon enough to do Taiping International FM? On the other hand, I want to improve my timing on KOTR, I did not run fast enough, or I did not try hard enough to finish the race last year. After Malakoff Penang which I clocked 1:21 vs KOTR 2011 at 1:35, I hope I could beat that timing and maybe 1:18 or less is a realistic target.
It is a difficult decision. Let me spend another few days to think about it.
Sunday is the judgment day for the 9.5km hiking/trail. OMG....
