Highlights. Running, Family & Gratitude

A new day.

A new year.

A new start.

And of course for me, am looking forward to start a new adventure in running. 2015 will be the year me and hubby get to try our hands (& feet) on some new stuff.  

But while we'll try to go farther and/or faster... we won't forget to do some short ones too. With the Son.  Shorter is fun too, especially when it's done with the family.

A look back in gratitude, of some memorable time these past years, in no particular order of importance as all are important and priceless to me. ^^ 
Watergate-16 hour. Hubby ran with me, while Son helped out a bit at the race. ^^
Skyhawk Nature Run in Melaka. We visited Melaka and sightsee before I ran my first half-marathon for 2014.
Volunteering together at Titi 50/100K in February. Son helped out too, but he was at another check point with his buddies.
Kaypohing at Nuang Ultra in March.
King of Bukit Larut in Taiping in April. Both hubby and I ran while Son helped out, taking care of nasi lemak for runners. Hahaha
Pisang Relay Run at Taman Bukit Jalil where we ran as a team.
The hubby and I just mooching around, going up Gunung Nuang one day. He picked a great day for a hike. We went up on a rainy day! I was actually cursing him all the way up from Pacat to Pengasih but in the end, I was glad we did it.

Somehow, we keep returning on rainy days. Huh
Both my boys went along and accompanied me at a fund-raiser for the Butterfly Project community. For the first time, we walked around Taman Bukit Kiara.
The boys waited patiently for me to finish a slow 10K run, at the Bomba Run; which I think my first 10K for the year.
They waited for me again, while I ran in the Cyberjaya Half-Marathon in May. By the time I finished, Son was almost asleep by the roadside waiting for me. Poor fella.
Son and Hubby were a huge support again at the 12-hour Back 2 Endurance.
Hubby and I spent the earlier part of one August Sunday doing an 18K trail and then we proceeded to run in the Energizer Night Race that night. Hubby and Son did their 5K and then waited for me to finish my slow (what's new?) 15K.
 And the hubby still accompanied me to a 5K fun run at the Avenue K Balloon Race the next day!

The things he put up for his wife. ^^
Despite his reluctance, Hubby drove me over to Seremban in August so that I can run a half-marathon and he even completed the course himself.
Having him at the River Jungle Marathon in September was good too. ^^
We had fun running around the Sungai Palas tea plantation, in the rain together too. ^^
Likewise, both Hubby and I finished our Standard Chartered KL Marathon though we didn't finish it together. But we both finished. Heh Heh
Son and I ran together in the 5K of MAKNA Founder's Night Run and the next morning, we all ran in the SJMC Run.
We spent our Saturday and Sunday one November weekend, manning a checkpoint for Putrajaya 100-Miles.
The boys supported and waited for me again while I ran in the Fujisan Marathon on the last day of November, which happens to be my last race for 2014.

It's always good to share what we love to do, with the one we love. ^^

Thank you hubby and son for humoring me all these time.

Thank you for your support.

Thank you for all those hours you guys had to wait patiently for me to finish.

Thank you for your understanding and allowing me to be selfish doing this running shenanigans. 

I love you two. Lots. *muaks*
