Finisher R9 Ultra

Sekitar jam 14.30 WIB saya mulai lari dari Rumah Makan Ikan Bakar Cianjur. Saya tergabung di Relay 9 tim alumni Matematika ITB. Artinya saya harus lari sekitar 20 km. Saya berada di Water Station (WS) 10 tersebut sudah dari jam 10 pagi. Sembari nunggu aku dan Mufri (rekan satu tim MA11) makan bubur ayam sampai sekitar jam 12-an. Saya nunggu mas Auriga MA 00 pelari sebelum saya.

Selanjutnya kami sholat di mushola, di sana ketemu mbak Astuti MA04 kemudian ketemu senior lain seperti Pak Ones dan Bu Janny, juga Afif MA 11. Ada juga Tim support MA sekaligus ITB90, mas Yusa. Prediksi awal saya lari sekitar jam 12.30 namun baru mulai lari dua jam setelah itu.

Lari 10k pertama pace saya cukup stabil. Mau sampai WS 11 hujan turun dan cukup deras pas sampai di lokasi. Di WS ini saya ketemu Pak Eko FT91 rekan kerja di lab. Setelah habiskan satu botol air minum kecil aku lanjutin perjalanan menuju WS12. Sekitar 2 km hujan turun tapi untungnya tidak deras. Di 10k terakhir ini saya ngerasa lebih capek khususnya pengen minum terus dan berhenti sejenak. Untungnya aku ketemu ama Putri OSE 14 dan jadilah teman ngobrol di sepanjang perjalanan.

Saya tidak cukup hafal dengan setting smartwatch saya saat saya salah menekan tombol fitur. Hasilnya saya tidak cukup akurat memprediksi saya tinggal berapa km sampai WS. Namun karena ada teman ngobrol, jarak saya dengan tempat finish ternyata sudah dekat. Alhamdulillah finish juga setelah lari 19.7 km. Saya pun foto-foto dengan kawan setim juga kenalan lain.

Part of Analysis

After writing chapter of results (findings), tomorrow is time for analyzing. This day was tough day as usual even not like yesterday. But, I can conquer it by focusing in writing paper. Anothers are side jobs even they looked so hard. For me, management is like a toy. Managing people is a good thing, I really like it. I hope tomorrow I can wake up before 6 am so I can continue my paper work and have jogging half hour like this morning.

Yesterday I sucessfully registrated Full Marathon (FM) held by Pocari Swet on August this year. This morning was my first day for its preparation. May FM brings motivation for me to routiny running more than 5 k (half hour) every day. I dream someday I can join international marathon event in London or New York, don’t I ?

ITB Ultra Marathon 2018

Last weekend was my second time joining running event. This opportunity was organized by ITB people, same with Ganesha Runiversity. The difference is in its official that this event was run by FTMD in coordination with BNI. So this event is big with more than 2 thousands people joined. The category consisted of severals : Relay 16, 8, 4, 2, and full 170k. The start was in BNI head office in Jakarta and its finish was in ITB Ganesa campus.

This was my first experience gathering with many alumni form Mathematics ITB. I was part of group 2 and Jaka was my running mate. I spent 1 hour and several minutes with 10s kilometers. I will told about this event more complete in my another blog.
