A Walkathon And A Makanthon Too?

First thing, let me just say how proud I am of Raimie.

Sunday, Nov 11th is the World Diabetes Day 5km walkathon and 10km fun run was held. I registered myself for the 10K run and for Raimie & Zaini; 5K walkathon. It ended up I had to sit out from running this event due to injury... uhuhuh so, I decided to take over photography duties from Zaini and let the boys have fun.I wish I was running too but I consoled myself that I have a bigger fish to fry next week. Be patient, legs.
Walking towards the Starting line from somewhere near Lake Garden. This stretch of road will be full of tours buses parked by the roadside (and Chinese tourists by the look of it) later in the morning.
All smiles and almost time to be flagged off.
5K Walkathon being flagged off. No photos of 10K starting because well, we arrived 20minutes after 10K started and 10 minutes before the walkathon to start.
Mommy tried to capture runners and walkers in action, while waiting for her two boys. The photos are up over at FB.
Then, got a call from Daddy that they were arriving and Mommy ran towards them and take this shot. Then, Daddy head over to his finishing area (Men Open) while Mommy ran in front of Raimie as he walked towards his finishing area (Boys 12yrs and below).
Raimie and his cetificate of completion and... a limited medal to boot! Woot! Woot!
Proud son and his equally proud daddy. Mommy is totally happy too.
Then, time to head off to redeem their goodie bags and most important at any sport venue:
drink MILO!
Raimie's Top 100 finisher medal and certificate

We can't go to the Terry Fox Run that was held at Padang Merbok at 9.00am because we needed to rush to Bangi. We went to FIL's house to shower and get ready, and with FIL travelled to Bangi to go to a relative's wedding.
After dropping off FIL back home afterwards, we drove over to Setiawangsa for Zaini's ex-colleague's wedding.

Burp.

  11. so many runs and walks event being held recently, like almost every week!! no wonder a friend was complaining that there was a traffic jam when he was going downtown..

    ReplyDelete

    1. Who ask your friend to go downtown early in the morning? Jam because everyone also drive around, that one never complain right?

      It's not a new thing lah. Calendars are packed on Sundays with running events.

      Why can't a few thousand runners (and car owners) jammed up the street every Sunday morning anyway? We pay taxes too. And we don't emit harmful carbon dioxida.

    1. Of course lah!

      You think we'd go visit people's wedding being all stinky. That would b rather... inconsiderate and insensitive towards the hosts, right? ;)

    1. Left foot. Felt something pulled mass I tekan minyak and tried to do a strong finish at the final km at CICM run hari tu. At least since last Sat, takdela terhencot-hencot dah. :-P

      My hubby asks me whether I'm risking a DNF for this week run. :-S

      Butterflies are good. Adrenaline rush better. Here's to your PB at PBIM! All the best :-)
