Kuala Lumpur International Marathon 2008 is a run to remember! It was my 3rd marathon and it was my personal best, managed to go sub 4hrs! I didn't have any confidence of a sub4 run after all the comments from regular runners. In KLIM, you had to deal with humidity, heat, bad traffic control, lousy road conditions at certain points and the list goes on. And of course, the most feared of all... CRAMPS! So I didn't put much hope and just ran like any other runs, just trying to maintain the pace and pray for no cramps.
All the way along the run, I remembered these words...
God, the Lord, is my strength; He makes my feet like the deer's
- Habakkuk 3:19
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength
They shall mount up with wings like eagles
They shall run and not be weary
They shall walk and not faint
- Isaiah 40:31
Believe me, these words helped when my legs felt like jellies and lungs felt squashed. Praise God!!
