Anyhow, Sat 6pm, we rolled off with great spirit. The 4 + 1 went off well for the 1st 15km-20km until Ken started feeling sleepy. He didn’t have much sleep cos of his dad’s condition. Tried with fast strikes and then walk for some distances to let himself stay away but his tired face still showing……along Sengkang, I gave a pack of Bios Life E to Ken which is supposed to give energy to allow Ken to last until Kallang McDonald’s. Between Amir and myself, we did notice his speed was faster even though later on, Ken said he didn’t feel much !!
Along Seletar the sand bank area, I think we lost Nima. He joined Jason Cheong as they were faster and our group just wanted to make sure we leave no one behind. Perhaps we would catch each other in Bedok or Sentosa ! Along Yio Chu Kang, we met Steven and his van of supporters…….we top up our water and headed off…..and then further up at the bus stop we met Angeline and her support team where we grabbed some tuna sandwiches……tasted delicious. ( Guru very fortunate with supportive wife !! Haha ) Boosted and with Ken getting more alert, we headed off to Kallang McDonald’s.
34km mark, we rested and enjoyed our supper. So far, our timing was great. The next stretch is to Changi and then Pasir Ris before ending up at Bedok Central for our breakfast ! The 4 of us still motivating each other and replenishing at petrol kiosks to refresh and clean up.
