The Twelfth

The 12th Half Marathon. My 12th Half Marathon.

I've signed up to do my 12th Half Marathon on the anniversary month of me starting running in road races 2 years ago.

I'll do my 12th HM in Zaini's hometown (sort of) in Terengganu, at Larian Jambatan Sultan Mahmud on Sep 28th.

September is also my birthday month (Zaini's too) and our anniversary month. Plenty to celebrate about. 

But before that, I'll do my 8th half marathon at SCKLM on June 30th (SCKLM 2012 was the first time I did a half-marathon, by the way), 9th in Seremban the week after that, 10th on Aug 15th and my 11th half-marathon event will be in Putrajaya; two weeks after doing a full marathon on Sep 1st.
Races done and lined up so far
Crazy much?

Let's just say, apart from SCKLM, the rest will be kind of a training run for me.

It's hard to train and run nowadays and not take up too muh of my family's time.

  4. I bet you will love to run across the Jambatan Sultan Mahmud. I only ran across the beautiful bridge in Putrajaya and loved the feeling. I asked my wife to sign me up for 12km Men's Health Shape run but really habis!

  9. Dah 12 HM? Ayo I am really at the back of the pack! :(
    Like I said so many times, I admire your discipline in training. Can never come close to that.

    Betul you cakap tu Lina, I've heard runners and athletes say that to them it's family first, running/sports second. Am I taking this way too seriously? Pagi tadi cuaca cantik je, redup. I could just go out for a run at 8am after most kids & hubby have left. Tapi kan I chose to sit & have breakfast with them, so perut dah berisi takde la nak berlari lepas tu hmmm

    Oh Nadza pun suruh I buat list races/LSD I nak pegi nanti...tapi my list pendek je kot hehehe

    1. Oh ya I dah reg HM kat Ganu! Tapi kan, confirmation email tak tulis pun HM...but I clicked the HM bar before I registered. Pastu bayar kat sana eh...? Okay2 I need to read the website and email again hehehe

      Delete
    2. Belum lagi 12 Millie. Baru register untuk yang ke-12! hahaha

      I selalu lari malam pun kena struggle.
      1 : I must have dinner with the family before I run so sometimes mmg senak.
      2. I must finish before my son's bedtime or run after his bedtime.


      Ganu ye... dlm e-mail category tu dia tulis A, B, C, D gitu.
