And I start to run again

One of few new interests I developed since 2011 is participating in running events, though technically I did not run, I just walk, and I walk fast. This year I did not get to participate in any events. I would like to give work and study hecticness as a reason but even I don't buy that. I am a believer, if I want to make it happen I'll make time. If I don't get to do it, it's due to my poor time management and I should spare myself from giving excuses :). Just like how I kept on procrastinating in choosing a healthy lifestyle to loose weight. If there's a t-shirt that says " I start my diet tomorrow", I must have been wearing that t-shirt for 11 years. Talk about taking procrastination to another level. Well, that's another blog entry all together.

So, for 2013, I decided to start participating in running events again. I have been subscribing to this website called Hooha via this link for nearly 2 years which gives me updates on the latest running events organised all over Malaysia. Been ignoring their updates for almost a year, time to pay attention and really read their emails. Another website where I get my update is Easy reference for all consolidated running events.

I am happy to announce *chewah*, I have registered myself for one running event in March. Well, I know I wanna start immediately, but running events are no joke. You need to train otherwise you will be so prone to injury.  Of course, to build up the stamina so that you get to complete the race. And if you are ambitious and wants to win it, you need to train harder. Like me, I settled for a finisher medal. As much as I am a positive person and I know I can do anything if I put my mind to it, I don't plan to kill myself along the way.

Few running events I really want to be part of for 2013. One of them is KL Marathon yearly organise yearly by Standard Chartered. I registered for it in 2011 but did not get to participate due to work *whatelse*. This year I am determined I will be part of it. 

Another event would the Putrajaya Night Race. It's an open secret how I love Putrajaya. And I love Putrajaya more at night. So running in Putrajaya at night will be an ideal situation. Took part in 2011, ran 5km. So for 2013, I want to do 10km, Insyallah.

"Always aim for the Moon, even if you miss, you'll land among the stars." On that quote, I aimed to take part is Penang Bridge Marathon. Of couse, I will do only the 10km. Not ready for 21km, maybe for 2014 once I survived the 10km. 

So, talk is cheap. I better be prepared for all this. Started my 45 minutes walking session this morning and need to sustain the momentum.

Hendak seribu daya, tak nak seribu dalih kan?

Signing off,
