Genting Nite Run

Some say we're crazy, some say we're nuts... welcome to the Wacko Club! 17 of us ran up Genting Highlands last nite. It's an annual activity during Ramadan as some of us cannot train during the day due to fasting month. Did my first run and bike last year, hence I really look forward to it this year. We started from McD Genting Sempah around 2245hrs. First half 11km to Gohtong Jaya was easy peasy. Some stretch along this route was pitch black. If you don't wear reflective jacket or blinker, there's no way a driver could see you running. We regrouped for a short break at Gohtong Jaya. The second half was like hell. Total distance was only around 9km but the route was 100% uphill - some as steep as 45 degrees. Although not as painful as Marathon, the last 5km to the top - every 100m - was extremely torturous. I made it to the top around 0300 hrs. We regrouped again at Starbucks, First World Hotel before heading back to Genting Sempah for sahur.

Dmi is never shy to show some funny moves. Ian, on the other hand, is a bit hesitant.

Superheroes in underwear... Ian is Batman and Dmi shows off his muscles just like Superman

Mizuno Wave Run 2007

This is the final race before puasa next week. For the past 3 months, I took part in 6 official races and yet I still can't beat Ala's records of 10 consecutive races. Today, many familiar faces I met: Ala, Bean, Joejo, OP Fadhil, Cikgu Adnan (my teacher in RMC), Steve, Vicky, Karo, Mejar Kalam, Wendy, and Ala's parents. Unofficial record 1:07.

Bagus la baju sponsor ni.... Arigato Mizuno!!

With 65 yr-old forever macho Cikgu Adnan, his arms are bigger than mine. He threw me a challenge to run 10k in 50 mins.

OP Fadhil, the "forever young" 56 year old guy

Everyone blasting at the starting line

People from all walks of life, running together

Despite going uphill, everyone keep on running

First time in my life that I have to queue up to cross the finish line

Panjang tuh... tapi apasal belah women category kosong jer?

Bean pirated, tak sempat register

I was surprised to see Joejo there. Good start bro, let's do it more often in the future!

Rock Climbing

It's been quite a while since my last climb. I guess 3 months back. Tried to be the lead climber to set up the rope for "monsoon" route but I failed at the "ledge", the hardest part. Luckily, Zabil found a new route to pass the ledge. Gotta try it next time.

Good job Zabil!!

The rest of the group & a few more tgh climbing not in the pic... Aliyah, r u happy?

MTB & Roadie

For two consecutive days I went cycling. On Friday, I went mountain biking at the Sg Buloh-FRIM route with Alan Tan (my ex-colleague in Frost). The day after, I went cycling at the Bt18-Sg Tekala loop with OP Shazly & OP Stupe. Lucky me, Shazly lent me his bike but the saddle was to high for a shorty guy like me. Ended up using Stupe's bike most of the time.
