Start of SCB run 2013 NaPoWriMo #6

The SCB run was organized well,
The event everyone did they tell,
Newspapers they did advertising,
Even seen by those facebooking,

Registrations and payments available online,
The whole process went down quite fine,
In our e-mails the receipts were given,
bar codes blocked cud be forgiven,

GetFitCrossFit organized practice runs,
on weekends not including on sun’s,
I didn’t bother waking up at 5am,
The practice run i didn’t came,

The reminders were sent,
To pick up our race pack we went,
Finding the indoor stadium’s main entrance,
was easy if you followed the other entrants,

Finding in my race pack bag,
my t-shirt, bib number and tag,
safety to pins to put it up was included,
so all my preparations were concluded,

On the morning I woke up,
3 am to drink my 1 litre up,
Prepared and waited for about an hour,
before i went without taking a shower,

arrived at the stadium at 4am,
to see there was no very big jam,
saw a lot of volunteers and organizers,
but not yet a lot of runners,

baggage counters were conveniently provided,
for those that carried a lot when they arrived,
baggage numbers stapled to our bibs,
so no one can take it with fibs,

My stomache was acting a bit funny,
Even before the day was sunny.
Fortunate to have portable toilets provided,
and the organizer have already considered,

5.30am 21k started on time,
still so early it ought to be a crime,
6am 10k runners were told,
to line up in the cold,

off to the starting line we were sent,
and at the sound of the horn, we all did went.


Ran 10k barefoot NaPoWriMo #5

I ran 10k barefoot,

I joined scb run,
10k for fun,
It was a slow start,
People in front had dart,

1st k I ran relax,
I saw myself almost at the back,
2nd k a few people I passed,
They were no longer that fast,

3rd k I saw still more runners in front,
Faster runners there were a lot,

4 k I was going uphill,
Bending gravity to my will,
5 k it was all downhill,
I went down with a thrill,

6 k I passed a few more walkers,
I heard a few who were talkers,
Running barefoot they would never try,
As if had they tried they would die,

After 7k it was all flat,
I was still feeling great,
8k I felt like going faster,
and saw some 21km runners,

9k I decided,
with a desire undivided,
to run as fast as I can,
to complete the kilometre of ten

before I completed the run,
there were cheerers having fun,
chanting to everyone that ran,
to keep them running as fast as they can,

loudly chanted one crew,
no shoe, no shoe, no shoe,
I felt so excited,
that my efforts were appreciated,

Last 10km I ran,
Passed a lot of people that I can,
When I crossed that finish line,
I told my self that I will do it again another time.


NaPoWriMo #4

Be careful driving In the rain,
When the days are wet its not the same,
Puddles appear here and there,
Water splashes everywhere,

The view of the path is not so clear,
Remember the ones you hold so dear,
Slowdown your car to a safe speed,
Wear your seatbelts wear it in need,

watch out for puddles here and there,
or you’ll hydroplane everywhere,
keep your distance of the car in front,
or brake in time you find you can’t,

turn your headlight so others can see you,
show yourself so other don’t go through you,
Be safe on the road while you are driving,
Appreciate your life while you are still living.

writing poems for fun

Got an e-mail from that someone was organizing a National Poem Writing Competition. Not in Brunei, but hey, why not.
Basically, just write one poem everyday for the month of april, it can be on paper, or if possible post it on a blog, or facebook.
I haven’t written poems in a while, so why not…

NaPoWriMo #2

I run for fun.
I run for health, I run for fun,
I run so far, untill I’m done,
I run 2k, 5k or 10,
I run every now and then,
I use endomondo to track my run,
To check how fast and how far I run,
And to track how frequent I run,
It makes running even more fun,
So scb marathon, here I come,
Running with everyone else, who is running for fun.
