Bukit Jalil Marathon & Men’s Health Women’s Health Run 2015

Bukit Jalil Marathon 2015

So last year, all of us decided that it was a good idea to register for two runs in a month and one of us took the plunge to register for his first half marathon. The usual faces are always yours truly, underscoresuff, Syahmi and Abang Megat but this time around, Jasmin joined us. My timing was terrible because the route was too hilly for me and well, I did not train. I underestimated the route. Oh well.

Men’s Health and Women’s Health Night Run 2015

After years and years of persuading my two friends to join runs with me, these two finally caved in and joined their first ever running event. It really made my night when I saw these two, took thousands of pictures at the finishing line. Not only that, for a 12KM run, I did quite good (for me, at least).

IMG_2292I suffered from foot cramps for few days after Bukit Jalil Marathon because I have low arch feet and to be honest, before this.. I did not know that some shoes are custom for high/low arch feet and I bought my previous New Balance, just because it was pretty. I did not put my low arch into consideration. After months of contemplating, I splurged on Nike LunarGlide because according to review, it is the best running shoes for flat footers like me.

Til then!

Run For Your Lives MY

Over the weekend, I had the privilege to experience Malaysia’s first Run For Your Lives. I vaguely remember signing up for it around August and little did I know, around two weeks before the run, that it’s actually an obstacle run. I thought it was just a run from zombie kind of run. Well, I panicked. Like always.

Things that I learned from obstacle run

  • Come prepared.
  • Teamwork is important.
    Originally, it was just me and Syahmi but found Arif at the last minute. Without these two, I think all of my lives would be gone within mere second.
  • Don’t underestimate the obstacles.
    I clearly underestimated some of the obstacles. My body is still sore.
  • (Some) zombies are not really that nice.

All in all, I had fun. Although I had some complaints but having my two friends running with me throughout the whole thing made it fun. Eventhough their initial plan was to use me as a human shield… I still managed to finish the run with one flag.

Did I have fun? Yes.

Will I participate again? No.
