First race in 2019：Taipei Standard Charted Half Marathon Result：1:10:16 Temperature :17°C~18°C Courses: too many turns, ups & downs(not a fast course)，also the headwind in second half was unpleasant。 This race is my tapering race before Tokyo marathon. Although I couldn't renew my PB, the finish time was within my expectation. And I unexpectedly placed as first runner up, and happily to win some expenses for diapers！I will fly back to Malaysia and train with my coach, next step: 2019 Tokyo Marathon!
A few months ago, my coach and I decided to work on my weaker event. So we added track event into my training/race plan. The famous Nippon Sport Univeristy Long Distance Meets bcame my top choice. Nippon Sport Univeristy helds its long distnce meets frequently and runners can run with many other runners with similar competency in the same group. This 265th Long Distance Meet is my first time to compete in this race. My group consists of runners who can run syb 32 min. The race day weather is a cool and slightly rainy day. There are 56 runners in my group. Once the race starts, I stay behind the peloton in order not to get stumbled. The pace is the first half isn't stable, and it takes extra effort to take over otehr exhausted or lapped runners. In the final phase of the race, I am fortunte enough to work with the group whose pace is similar to my target pace. And successfully to finisih it inside 32 min, an smash ny PB by nearly 1 and half min. An unspoken gratitude for my #coach_jp__, my gear sponsor #Nike Malaysia, professional phtographera from@跑者視角, #和諧長跑協會 from Taiwan which help me apply for the race, my friends and my financial sponsors.
