OK. First - I'm not a marathoner, as many of my friends and colleagues kept saying I am.
I lost count on how many times I corrected people when they say this, until I stopped correcting them.
I have never done a 42K run in my life. Not yet anyway. A 10K race is not a marathon. Neither is 15K. 21K is "merely" a half-marathon. After SCKLM on June 24th, maybe you can call me a half-marathoner lah. heh heh
The point of this rant is actually because I just did a basic screening that was arranged by the company for all staff. A hospital had this medical campaign on and since it was free - just go lah.
Now, the problem with doing it en masse and with 80% of staff knows you is that, everyone can KPC or busybody about your results. You can do it too. I pretty much wreck havoc at the screening room, "disturbing" other colleagues who were doing their screening too. haha To the nurses there - thank you for putting up with our "disruptive" behaviour. ;p
I pretty much suck at the test.
BMI = overweight
Body fat = high
Skeletal muscle percentage = low
Bone density = osteopenia
Good thing the rest of the tests results are normal.
OK. I pretty much know the results from a more comprehensive check but as I mentioned, when this was done en masse people can know my results.
So when it was advised that I go for a diet control and exercise, a few concerned colleague exclaimed that how much more exercise I need to do since I run marathons. Oh boy!
And me being a "marathoner" was being mentioned over and over since my results are the same with those who didn't bother to exercise. Aiyah~
Anyway, just to let you know - I'm also not that healthy. You can't be that healthy if you used to have your name down in more than 3 medical specialists at one hospital. I also have the tendency to get that 1% side effect from a medicine. You know - when you are given a medicine to take and the doctor will give out a list of side effects but then proceeded to mention that only a handful will have that side effect? I will fall under that category. How special, right? LOL
The point of this rant? As usual - no point. But I find it quite embarrassing for people to call me a marathoner or I run marathon when I actually haven't!
But be patient. I will do it. Someday. ^^
Thank you for your patience reading this. I trust you did read the whole thing? heh heh
