Buzz!ng with Le Couple Toy

Archive for June 2009

Finally gone for my first MARATHON, well, quarter MARATHON anyway after much persuasion from dear wifey and also due to many dear friends joining in for this run.  I swear to you my very first objective for joining is just for the goodie bag which turned out to be rather disappointing (no pics taken for the goodie bag cause it is really a waste of time).  Anyway, asked a dear friend to sign me up for 5KM fun run (cause all I wanted was the goodie bag), she thought it would be funny to sign me up for the 10KM instead. And it was funny to them anyway.

Well but we both did it and we had loads of fun doing it. Now we know limits are just a mental game.

DO spot the jubilant me if you can

 I think the finishing time for me was not bad la.. with no training and absolute faith in FizFit!

With so many dark clouds surrounding this event, I think the only saving grace was the 10KM run so most of us did have fun doing it and finishing it. And seeing Bald Eagle and WaiHoong finishing the 42KM is really inspiring and scary at the same time. The gruelling pain you have to go thru is shocking and satisfying at the same time.

Imagine finishing the 10KM for beginners like us and then lining up for water and food with 5000 other marathoners. Well we just imagine only cause unlike the mere mortals, we have great cheerleaders that came to cheer for us along with loads of water, food, bananas, extra change of clothes, and fantastic pictures. Hahaha.. poor mortals.

Oh, and another screw up for the event is me being registered under the wrong name. So right bib, right time but wrong name. Hope they won’t send the wrong certificate.

Came across this website call TweenBots.

Such a heart warming story for a boring Monday.

If the same thing were to happen here in KL, here’s what’ll happen:

1. Robot ‘stolen’

2. Ah Sam (makcik) scolding inventor for doing nonsense instead of earning money to feed family

3. People staring at it but not do anything

4. People leading it the wrong direction (to humour themselves)

5. Children pull and drag it (parents looking on/ignoring)

D**n, I have no faith in my city.

May I never get lost and need directions.
