I scored a personal best in the Penang Bridge International Marathon 2012, achieving a sub-4hr marathon run by the skin of my teeth when I crossed the line in 3h 59m!
Two weeks later, I was back on home soil to try to lower the time, and the pressure this time was to make sure that my sub-4hr achievement in Penang was no fluke.
Fortunately, I duly delivered a lower time, crossing the line with a nett time of 3h 55m. Friends and readers who follow me on Twitter would have seen the live results as my split times were tweeted during the race itself.
The official results were also released a couple of days later, along with runpix analysis, and e-certificate available for download.
The end of the biggest race in Singapore thus concludes the running season for me, it also signifies the start of self-indulgence in the year-end festivites, catching up with much needed sleep and family time, before the grind of training starts all over again next year!
