Sending off Cikgu Adnan to London

Image
This is the first time I send someone off to London not at the airport. As everyone read about him in the newspaper lately, Cikgu Adnan is on his solo cycling expedition from Kuala Lumpur to London. He will be crossing Thai, Laos, China, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Germany, France and finally England. Whoaaa.... that cover roughly 20,000km!!! Who doesn't know him, Cikgu Adnan was my art teacher in RMC and he's 69 year-old this year. He accomplished many extraordinary things in his life like dozens of marathon, scaled the country's 12 highest peaks, endurance races. He survived Marathon Des Sables (243km marathon across Sahara Desert) and came back alive to tell the story. He once told me, he only started all these after 40 years old and he was heavy smoker with drinking problem in his younger days. This proof it is never too late to start healthy lifestyle. His target is to reach London before t…

KL Rat Race 2011

This is the 12th year of Corporate Malaysia's one-of-a-kind race and it was my first. Started from behind, so that I can overtake my team members and take their pictures one by one. The distance supposed to be 4.5km but my GPS tracker recorded 6km on the dot. Unfortunately, I wasn't the fastest guy in the race.... but I'm still the fastest runner in Celcom team and I ran with blue wig on too! :)

 The Blue Team in full bar spirit!
 I met many people I know at the event
 It is time to run!
 I overtook them one by one from behind
Thanks to Celcom's supporters... you guys awesome!

If you think you are not fit enough to run, try listen to this talk. You will have a different perspective about running. I have read his book "Born To Run", and it made me want to sign-up for ultramarathon.
Hope the talk will inspire you to go out and run. C'mon guys! Let's run!!
