The Pearl Triathlon Team Relay
|Race Pack Collection and Briefing session on previous day|
|The swim took place at the beautiful Lido Qanat Quartier beach|
|Alan was exhausted when he came out of the water (1500 m in 29:24)|
|Najib with his Malaysia club's jersey, Denai United. His time on the bike was 40km in 1:11:38|
|Zachary, Cinta and Elias cheering from our apartment block were so excited every time I ran past them|
|Another good outing by KBT|
Swim 1500m - 29:24 (Rank 4th)
Bike 40 km - 1:11:38 (Rank 5th)
Run 10 km - 43:51 (Rank 3rd)
The run course was 2 laps from the transition area at Lido Qanat Quartier beach, passing through the undulating Corso Venezia then into the main Pearl highway towards the causeway and back. The hilly course and the heat was a killer, but it was great because I got to see my family who were cheering for me by the kerb in front of my apartment 4 times. It's not everyday that you get to run a race without travelling at all. Despite not making it to the podium, I was happy with my personal and our team's overall performance. I also did a PB in 10k!
Kudos to the organisers and the volunteers, the race was very well organised. A good sign for bigger races in the future. I can say it was the best I have participated locally. Everything was so meticulously planned for. Thank you.
I cant wait for the new season to start in October now that I am hooked with triathlon.
