AIA Men's Health Women's Health Night Run

Image
I wasn't supposed to do this 21K run at AIA Men's Health Women's Health Night Run on Saturday night as I was supposed to be in Merapoh, Pahang doing 30K at The Magnificent Merapoh Trail.  See my name on the banner? Huhuhu
Congrats Andri on TMMT!
If any of you guys saw a runner sporting the bib under my name, don't throw a hissy fit. The organiser allowed legal bib transfer and I already informed them of me not being able to run in TMMT. 
Anyways, life happens and shit happens too. Hahaha
And there I was, going to Putrajaya on a Saturday night for a road run instead of a trail run in Pahang. And running in the rain. Misjudged traffic condition and the initial plan to have dinner was scrapped off and I was getting hungry while being stuck in the car getting to Putrajaya.
We arrived shortly before the Maghrib azan was heard and I had just enough time to eat and digest a bun. For dinner.
Didn't manage to meet up with any friends before the flag-off and I started mid o…

Press Release: PUMA INTRODUCES THE ALL-NEW IGNITE DUAL FOR AUTUMN-WINTER ‘16

Image
Dual Benefits of Flexibility and Cushioning In One Running Shoe
Herzogenaurach, Germany (24th May, 2016) – Global Sports Brand PUMA continues to expand its successful IGNITE running franchise with the all-new IGNITE Dual for Autumn-Winter ’16 that offers duality in both function and style.
Engineered to provide ultimate flexibility and cushioning for mid and long distance runners, the IGNITE Dual features the proprietary IGNITE FOAM midsole that's visible on the heel and hidden in the forefoot to offer full length energy return. Articulated chevron grooves are designed to compress during landing and rebound. The molded EVA sockliner cradles the foot comfortably for an easy run. The outsole has been technically enhanced by PUMA to mimic the natural gait of the runner. A guidance groove that runs from the heel allows a smoother transfer of the runner’s weight from heel-strike to toe-off. Deep forefoot flex grooves add to the freedom of movement while carbon rubber is introduced on t…

A Celebratory Dinner At Miyagi

Image
Two Sundays ago, after my run at TM Fan Run; my family and a couple of friends went for dinner at Miyagi for a celebration. The cause of celebration was this. My result for my half-marathon at TM Fan Run.

We had dinner together at Nando's on Friday, before the run and I had told them that I'd treat them for a Japanese dinner at our favourite restaurant if I get a sub2:30 that Sunday.

And ya, well... I got that sub2:30.  Son had soba and tempura since he didn't want to eat a heavy dinner that night. Hubby had beef teppanyaki set. As I was hankering for some oyster for the past few days, ordered the fried oyster set. I prefer them raw, but fried also OK lah...

And it's cheaper to eat them here also... A close-up of my oyster.

It was supposed to be my treat for everyone to celebrate my PB timing but the couple had generously "belanja" us instead. THANK YOU!

Anyways. for the next PB, it'll be salmon sashimi and caviar. Hahaha

Let It Be, A Celebration of Music of the Beatles Part II

Image
The Show You Never Got To See.
LET IT BE is jam-packed with over forty of The Beatles’ greatest hits and thanks to AC Music Entertainment, I had the opportunity to watch the concert.

Not one pass but two VVIP passes were generously allocated for us and as Son indicated that he wanted to watch it too, we went together and ditched the Dad for two hours last Saturday. ^^ Our excellent seat in the Plenary Hall, KL Convention Centre. The show started with the "mop top" era first and we moved through the years gradually in segments.
From the magical sixties to what would have been if they were reunited.
Forty songs were showcased including Twist and Shout, She Loves You and Drive My Car, as well as global mega-hits Yesterday, Hey Jude, Come Together and, of course, Let It Be. Another fun thing about going to the concert - meeting fellow bloggers. ^^ We listened and watched the performance, we danced and we also sang along and pretty soon, the show was over. It was also a perfect r…

Group Effort Run For A Sub2:30 HM

Image
I signed up for TM Fan Run (TMFR) 2016 early, with the intention to use it as part of my training mileage for the upcoming Standard Chartered KL Marathon (SCKLM) which will be held three weeks after TMFR.
There wasn't any fast target for the run initially, what with it being held around 11 days after the Hari Raya but after a few sessions with my running kakis, the Gaited Community (GC) during the Ramadan month at Bukit Cinta, UM and someone racun more people to join TMFR; suddenly there was an aim for a sub2:30 being discussed.
Bismi had so kindly offered to be the 2:30 pacer and quite a number of our gang were excited to run within that time for a 21K. I was quite hesitant to join at first as I only wanted to do my LSD but later decided, why not. If I can't cope with the pace, I'll drop and finish it at my target easy pace but if I could follow through, it would be a great motivation for SCKLM. The others too were getting ready for SCKLM; some will be running in the FM …
