First and foremost
I CANT BELIEVE I PARTICIPATED IN THIS KINDA EVENTS"
Apologies for the excitement, you see, this is my first time ever to be a participant in such events. The most I've contributed would be as one of the volunteers which I actually would suck in it coz I'm lazy like that.
So, for me, this is a personal achievement, for someone of my size, I am proud to say,
Challenge Accepted and Been There Done That, FIN!
Besides being part of history in the Malaysia Book Of Records for the Biggest Maze in Malaysia and getting my end-of-the-year-supposed-to-be-musim-tengkujuh-but-it-is-sunning-brightly-tanned, surprisingly I had amazed myself *moments of self-appraising*
I am not a fit person, yes, people who knew me well knows that I am not that kinda person. However I love doing obstacles course (which are for easy going person not the athletic shit) and do something out of the ordinary. So this run is perfect for me! but I was on a lantak-pi phase coz I didnt do any research on what's this run was all about. I refused to know any information about the obstacles coz I want it to be a surprise !(sebenarnye takut akan backout bila dah tau kesusahannya)
Sebelum Kejadian, still fresh and innocent. You'll see how this angel faces turns mushy and tensed!
H058 : the 58th person of the 11:00 o'clock session ( I assume)
FUNFACT: This is Rechel George, I've seen her once in one of the Fear Factor Malaysia episodes and was blew away with her fearless acts! So it was like meeting a real superwoman in person ! and she was so humble and nice. (didnt saw her at all in the race, confirm the first one to finish)
The What-Have-We-Got-Ourselves-In-To face (well macam aku sorang je yang buat muka tu)
Shayt Got Real! Minutes before we begin!!
The first obstacle:
crawling meniarap? under the wires
Thank God the floors were slippery so it was easy to push yourself forward
The second obstacle: climbing this 2.65 metres high plank (i think its 2.65)
There's 2 ropes for men in the middle and 2 ropes with stairs for the ladies
This may look scary but it was actually quite easy (with stairs of course)
The third obstacle: 3 pool, 1 with tyres, 1 with wires, 1 empty
I loved this part because the weather was so hot and the water was cold and nice!
The fourth obstacle: THE MAZE. WEYH BOLEH TAHAN SAKIT JIWA
It wasn't as greeeeeen as I imagined it ( you know those green garden maze in the movies)
you could go nuts if you were alone and figuring out the way out. Nina with her nerd mode telling us the probability of 30% of getting the right doors when we encountered 3 different doors to choose from. Zatul with the colors coordination in the maze and me, keep on looking out for the towers as guidance while goofing around as if we were in one of the battlefield in counter strike.
and this was Nina's reaction when we managed to get out of the maze
The fifth obstacle: Green Garden Wall Climbing
I HAVE NEVER HAD THE GUTS TO DO WALL CLIMBING because I NEVER have the confidence of pulling myself up. yes I'm insecure like that. I've tried several times doing this activity and failed miserably every single time. Hence, to be able to cross this wall (walaupun tak tinggi sangat pun) was such an accomplishment because it is something that I had failed to do before. Thank you dude for the help!
and we ended our race by running a 100 meter track to the finishing line!
For a noob non-atheletic person like me, this run was so much fun.
Selepas Kejadian: see that tanned face and fingers!
Muka bangga dapat berjaya buat semua obstacles!
Overall, this was a freaking great experience and the medal, was worth the money!
and down here is Us, having our own sweet time doing the run
while others were busy finishing the run in a rush to claim The Best Time prize.
PS: Thank you Irfan for lending me your camera! It was worth running around with one hand busy filming this historic event of my life (overs)
PSS: I've learn to never limit your expectations and with strong determination, anything is possible, in this case, do-able!
