It's about Bidor half marathon on 26th April 2009.
I don't want to run another race alone.
I almost always run races alone......
I know I'm not that introvert.....so don't make me think that I am.
I actually like to run with people....my friends.....you guys!!!
SO why do I almost always end up going to races alone?
God knows......!! (probably one of those mysteries in life that can never be solved sort)
But here I am making a plea (to my friends who read my blog regularly...I LOVE YOU GUYS!)
Well....sort of a plea....for you guys to run this race with me.
Oh c'mon...it's only a half marathon.
Wait.....don't close this window or surf off to another website....you have yet to read the rest of the blog!!! (it's part of the friendship...to read finish each of my blog postings)
At least read thru what I have to say before deciding that I'm full of bullshit....or extremely desperate for running buddies.
Bidor half marathon.....
Firstly.....do you guys know where Bidor is?
It is actually a small town in Perak and those of you who travels centrally up to Ipoh/Penang would definitely pass the toll plaza for Bidor, along the North-South highway.
It is a.... quant town.
I mean..they weren't joking when they say it's a small town.
What is it famous for???
Er.....well, according to my "research", it is famous for Bidor Chicken Biscuits and Herbal Duck Noodles in Pun Chun Restaurant!
For those who went to Induction Course with me at Trolak Country Resort (shittest place on earth), Pun Chun was the usual hangout when the provided food was starting to get 'stale'.
It is also a former mining town....(No I don't remember mining for what....and No I don't get commission for promoting Bidor!)
Anyway let us come back to the half marathon itself.
It is on 26th April 2009....starts at 7am (pretty late if you ask me) from Dewan Muhibbah Bidor. (I've no idea where it is but will find out)
Besides the 21.1km, there's also the accompanying 10km and jovial fun-run of 3km.
Oh...did I mention it is pretty affordable?
It cost rm35!
You have no idea how much I paid for the Singapore half marathon ok....heck, I even paid over double of this amount for the Sundown 10km!!
And Brooks is actually one of the sponsors so the t-shirts most likely would be technical vest and not those crappy cotton t-shirts!
Ok...I have to admit, I don't really know how the route is like or the terrain for that matter....but most likely it's tarred road.
And I have no idea how good the hydration would be but I'm sure it would not be as disastrous as Penang Bridge marathon.
And since there aren't that many "cool" sponsors like other international races, the goodie bag may not be that good......(I'm not even sure if there would be a goodie bag besides the race shirt)
Also, the organizing people (the Bidor Runner's Club) are providing the participants "free accommodation" at Dewan Muhibbah Bidor.....as long as you bring your own sleeping bag. I'm thinking it's like camping back in school!!!
But of course you guys (my friends!) aren't gonna be roughing it out there....
You guys bring your sleeping bags and bunk at my place in Ipoh and we'll drive down to Bidor early in the morning....and I promise not to speed on the highway!!!! (cross my heart)
And if you guys don't want to take me up on the sleeping-at-my-place offer, the Bidor Runner's Club came up with few suggestions of accomodation at Kampar or Tapah....and God forbid, Trolak Country Resort!!!!
(the entry forms and also the routes for all 3 distances are included!)
And you guys know that I'm NOT paid to say nice things about Bidor or the half marathon rite!
I'm doing this because I want us all to share a special moment together....with our sympathetic nervous system all pumped up and adrenaline coursing through our blood vessels, our bodies pushed to the limits and to achieve something that words cannot explain....
Look...if you're too slow and you don't get a medal I'll give you mine!!!!!! (yes I am that desperate!)
So....who's all revved up for the race????!!!!
Oh c'mon...there must be SOMEONE!!!!!!
Sigh....you guys always disappoint me on this running thing....
