Thanks folks for wishing me good luck to be King of Bukit Larut 2015. I am very happy and very proud of being at the 3rd place in 10KM category women's open. This was my virgin run on hiking trail, and it was running uphill 5km and downhill 5km at my lovely hometown Bukit Larut. I feel that all my hard work and time spent training for hours in the gym every day is all paid off. I did it and the result has told me that I am doing good in my exercise routine.
1 KM before the U Turn station, some male runners going downhill told me that I was the top few female runners in my category. There was a chance for winning. First time I had that thought.
First time, I heard so many people cheering and clapping for me. I felt so energetic, youthful and happy.
I quickly borrowed a phone from my colleague to call home. First, I wanted to share my happiness with them and second, I wanted them to come and witnessed me receiving prize.
I never thought of bagging anything in the beginning of the run. My achievement has brought me tremendous satisfaction.
Exhaustion and excitement, the emotion made me lose my interest to food. I didn't take any nasi lemak, watermelon and bananas that served at the foot of the hill. I only took a bowl of Cendol and many cups of 100% Plus to quench my thirst.
After this first run on trail, I haven't signed up any run. I thought of giving myself a break from my training. I just want to enjoy my exercise regime, such as swimming, gym, zumba, and yoga at the mean time.

I wanted to thank my husband for sending me there and watching my two girls at home when I taking part in the run. He just said, "Good luck!" and left me there with other runners from everywhere. I met Mak Glam there, she was really glam in her running outfits until I could spot her far far away.

|Going downhill, I was overtaken by 1 female runners and few male runners.|
I brought nothing with me in my run, except a face towel. Yannie bathed in own sweat.
