Went for the Penang Bridge Run - Fun Run 10km category and completed the run under one and a half hour. This is actually my first bridge run even though I've lived in Penang since 2006. Throughout the years I had just chosen to sleep in and then wake up and mock the people who got up in the middle of the night for the run. :P During the run, the sun came up over the Penang Bridge. It was so beautiful. I can see the appeal for an annual mass run now.
I just feel that haters will always be haters. Some people jeer at me for making a fuss out of this without understanding that this is my first real run 9 months after my ACL surgery. After my surgery I haven't really done any runs, not even on the treadmill, usually I just use an elliptical trainer because my physio-therapist had warned me to give less impact on my knees.
Anyway, feeling good after I completed the run. My knee doesn't hurt, although I can feel the difference between a healthy left knee and a post-ACL surgery right knee. Thanks to my hubby for giving up his half-marathon to accompany me on this fun run. :-)

Also now that the run is over, I hope that they turn down the brightness cos I can't sleep at night.
