Standard Chartered KL International Marathon—Final Countdown

Well, this is it, tomorrow will be the Standard Chartered KL International Marathon starting and finishing at Padang Merdeka. However, because of a bit of lingering injury on my left foot, I'm only running the half marathon (21km). Actually, I did not plan to do the KL Marathon this year to allow my foot to heal. But then I realised that a fair number of my friends are running. So in the end I decided to compromise by running the half marathon.

My best official time for a half marathon so far is a little over 1:58 in the Bareno Run in March. So tomorrow I'm trying to achieve a 1:57 for a personal best (PB). Since it's just a half marathon, I'm running in my adizero Boston, thus risking aggravating my foot injury.

Well, butterflies in the stomach; thinking of all the things that can go wrong. More report after the race tomorrow. Keeping my fingers crossed...
