2:33 - numbers sometimes speak louder than words; so there you have it in a nutshell. I was unable to break the two and a half hour mark for the half marathon. Weight loss would help; improved mental strength would too - I realised this as I ran towards this landmark near the end of the race. It looked near but was kilometres away.
Nonetheless, this has been a fulfilling experience for me as Sean and Sara also ran the Half with me; and I ran with negligible knee pain. Thanks to Tatiana. And as long as I continue to improve my times (my KL Half in 2009 was 2:43) - I will be giving her my finisher medals.
