This wasn’t my first 2XU race. I took part in the 2011 (12km) and 2013 (21.1km) edition before. I took part in the half marathon this year with the feel-good people from Running Department. It was supposed to be a build-up run to Sundown/Gold Coast Marathon for some of our fellow runners but the event got postponed due to the departure of Mr. Lee KY. I took part to soak in the atmosphere and took it as a bonding session with my team.
