The time is 6:42 in the morning. And it is not a regular morning on my trip. I have been running 5+ hour into the Penang Bridge International Marathon 2014, the 42.195km foot race through the new Penang Bridge, and back.
The dark night is not windy. But that is what exhausting most runner in the back pack. The heat, and the labor of running a marathon had taken a toll on most of us that still running, or walking. We are tired, thirsty, and hungry. We just want to finish the race,
The timing of the sunrise could not be more perfect. Just as most runner in the back pack think of giving up, the sun rose behind us. And there are really nothing more energizing than dawn. The sky turns from dark to bluish. And then, a streak of light rise up on the horizon.
