Rock 2 Rock Run, Penang


This was an unplanned event as it was supposed to be on 28 Nov, but postponed due to the passing of Dr Lim Chong Eu. And since I was back, I decided to RUN! But registrations were long closed. I planned to 'pirate' the run.
But how did I get the '2250'? hehe My god-sis who has registered decided not to go. Oh well, it made no difference cos I wouldn't be a podium finisher nor did I stay for the lucky draw and all other post-run events. I only have the cert to show ;p
It took me as long to drive up (Teluk Bahang), wait for the start and then run. Yes, short 5km run but I think it was less (need to google to check to satisfy my curiosity).
It is an inaugural charity run organized by Hard Rock Hotel, Penang in aid of a charity home (can't remember the name-lah). I kinda enjoyed this very much cos it was my first 'home run' since my last Pg Bridge Marathon in 2006. Not many people, traffic was almost zilch and route was scenic (run by the sea on the hillslopes).
Brought back memories when I was still single and would make it a point to go back to almost all the run events in Penang. A place called home, but then I didn't have any penang-running-friends. I always ran alone but almost all the time I had daddy greeting me at the finishing and sharing all my joyous almost-podium-finishing moments (haha not top 3 lah, top 5 or 10 'got chance lah' that time).
Now? perhaps next Pg Bridge Marathon....
Rock Run was on Saturday, and on Sunday it was Pg Round Island Relay. Yup relay of 12people (I think or was it 10) running round the island. All this while its been a men-only event but I planned to pirate (again) just the 1st leg at it runs through somewhere close to my house. But alas, it was only a plan. hahaha....Sunday morning came and I woke up with a heavy head. So after feeding baby milk, I popped back to bed. :)
