Warm-up.

Running race 1:32:49 [5] 20.0 km (4:38 / km) +100m 4:32 / km
shoes: Asics Gel-Speedstar 6 2012

I woke-up at 4:00 am. and packed-up my soaking wet tent after a mostly sleepless night due to the rain pounding my tent for most of the night. I only managed to get a few hours of sleep. While the crowd (of mostly fun runners) assembled at the startline before the race I was feeling ok given the circumstances. Right after the gun went off it was clear that there were only 5-10 serious runners. Four runners (including myself) quickly dropped everyone else. Then after about 700 meters two Thai runners went ahead, while I was running with a Kenyan. That has to be the first time that has happened to me in a race. I remember seeing the Kenyan runner the day before at the package pick-up and thinking "what the heck is he doing here there is no prize money". I had a nice chat with him and it turns out that he came to the race from Malaysia as a training run only and that he came here "even with no prize money". He said that he wound pace me to 2 or 3 kilometers. At the 2 km. mark he was pushing the pace and I told him to go ahead and I thanked him. At that point the other runners were about 200-300 meters ahead and I would guess that it took him under 2:00 to catch them effortlessly! A runner pased me around the 4 km. mark. Overall I was feeling good and the amazing scenery made the kilometers fly by. Mountains, rice fields, lakes, fog and jungle. I took a gel around the 10 km. mark on unexpected trail section from about 9-13 kilometers. The trail was very wet, muddy and rocky. After I circled the large reservoir I headed back towards the start/finish line. I took another gel at the 16 km. mark and I pushed along. I crossed the line in 4th overall and 3rd in my age group. Apparenly the Kenyan did not have a number or timing chip, so he did not get 1st place overall. The most scenic race that I have done in Thailand!
