Photos, Today's Run And An Upcoming Race

A very belated narcissistic post... as I just made an effort to look for my own finishing photos taken by the official photographers of Penang Bridge International Marathon which I entered in November.
Nothing outstanding. No close-up. Heck, when I was reaching the finish line, didn't notice any photographers taking photos other than Zaini! I couldn't smile to any random person there, could I?

Anyway, love this shot taken by Magic Moments Picture :
This photo was taken just after flag-off for half-marathon categories, and those were Women categories only. What a crowd, eh? Happy to say I was one of them! 

You can see the odd man (men) there because quite a number of them chose to run with their partner/significant half. Awwww...
Can you locate me? I was one of the stragglers in that category. heh heh I actually waited like a full minute after Women flag-off to walk (yes, walk) to the start line, just to avoid the crowd.

Anyway, training is in full steam right now to prepare myself for my very first full marathon distance which I intend to do in 2013. *choo choo*
And with that, here's today LSD record for prosterity. Miahaha!!!Two sessions of a 12K run & a 3K uphill walk instead of the supposed 16K run but wanted to do 20K run I aimed earlier. Reason : started the run at 9.00am and getting slowly roasted under the hot sun in Putrajaya in the process. Finished at 11.00am.

What do I get from running so late?
Visible tan line!

I think I'm in some sort of race withdrawal.... hence this post about a race that happened in November. I'm just glad that I'll have a 25K run at Newton Challenge next week to look forward and suffer to!

Those yet to know the race course (like me) may want to head to Jamie's blog or Yim's too and hyperventilate after reading them! Hahaha
p.s. Don't forget to collect your race kit from 27th - 29th. One thing I love about Newton is that race kit collection will be easy for me (for once!) It's literally right at my office's doorstep. Yeay!

  3. It is nice to have deep tan like mocha. Otherwise you should wear a veil and long sleeves to run.

    2. Maybe I should make an omiyage request of the prints from a certain someone who will go galloping with zebras in a couple of month's time? ;p

  7. What? No V-sign and wide grin?!

    What (again)? A visible tan? Shock, horror, faint! (If you're a Japanese woman). Cool, healthy, attagirl! (If you're a jungle woman.)

    1. I didn't see any bazooka lenses aimed at me, that's why!!!!! *wail* hahaha

      I am an anomaly here, with certain people with my tan lines. They're like - got slap on some whitening lotion already! o.O

    2. I struggle to explain the difference between suntan and sunburn to my female students. To them, it's the same horror.

      Tell them, "South Africans like to have sun-bleached hair and a light brown skin. We think it's healthy and sexy." Then watch their total, absolute bewilderment ...

    3. Ru,
      You know, there are a number of strong runners (Japanese expats) here and one of them (top 10 in women category no less) covers up so well during her run, she puts this Muslim woman to shame!

      Er Sensei... Sunburn and suntan is not the shame? Naze? xD

  8. It's great that you love running. It keeps you fit and healthy!
