I won in Women Open 7KM

I woke up rather early on last Sunday for the charity run that I mentioned in my earlier post. I must thank my husband for preparing 3 half boiled eggs and a cup of Milo as my breakie before sending me off to the event. He is always so supportive.

I started by running a little faster. I ran passing the two ladies who started off in front of me and remained as the first throughout the 7KM run.

First time wearing my new running cap to run, a gift from my husband. 

The top four runners in Women Open 7KM.

I don't want to deny that I am very happy to bag the champion in this category of this run, as I didn't have much confident prior to the run. 

It was the women open category but the top 5 were almost all with the age which qualified for veterans. 
I feel so much happier than winning the champion in Women Veteran 10KM in KOBL2017, because this was my first race on flat road and I didn't expect to bag any prize in the beginning.

My next race is on 1st July and it is our first night run in the town.

Charity run 2017

Tomorrow morning I have a run event. It is also sponsored by my company to join a charity school for a local high school. I take part in 7KM women open, as I am only qualified for this category this time.

I don't have much confident as it is the women open and it is only 7KM tar road. I have better endurance than speed in running. A distance of more than 10KM will benefit me more.  Well, I will take it as a trial run for my 8KM night run event in July.

Nevertheless, I will do my very best, as I have put in lots of hard work in training recently.

I just wish that I will enjoy my run and retain my own record. So far, I complete my 7KM in 42 minutes (my pace is 10 kilometers per hour). That is the best I can do for now.

Today, I will go and run 7KM at the actual track as my last round of training for tomorrow run.

Till then, have a nice and pleasant weekend, folks.

Mother's day

Tomorrow is Mother's day. We are going for a simple celebration this evening. We plan to go to a cafe which has Mother's day promotion and live band singer. I am kind of looking forward to the outing.

I am now having an 11 years old child and a 13 years old teenager. They are now so much different than when they were young.

Let me share a few of the differences here.

Case 1: Bedtime, 
Then
Girls: Mummy, tonight can I sleep with you? So long I didn't sleep in your room.
Mom: No, sorry. Please sleep in your own room.
(Because mummy needs some me time)

Now
Mom: Girls, can mummy sleep with you? So long I didn't sleep in your room.
Girls: No mummy, you are too big to share my bed.
(Apparently, mummy didn't grow any bigger, but they are the one growing a lot.)


Case 2: What to wear?
Then
Girls: Mummy, please tell me what I should wear for the outing.
(Girls want mummy to decide what they should wear)

Now
Mom: Girls, please tell me what mummy should wear for the outing
(Mummy is seeking opinion and advice from the girls on what to wear now)



Time flies, they are growing up really fast. One thing for sure and it would never change. They are my priority in my life.

Happy Mother's day to all mothers out there.

Happy Get-together


I enjoy my run and work out in the gym. I also like to go hiking with a few friends on weekends, However, every Tuesday and Thursday, I will feel even more excited, as I am looking forwards to join the Zumba lesson in the evening. I am very happy whenever I am in the class with my instructor and other Zumba members. Though I know that I don't burn that much of calories when comparing to run 8KM on the treadmill and also hike 10KM at Bukit Larut. It is the least  strenuous exercise for me in a week. May be because of the music, the move, the friendly atmosphere and the people. I just love going there.

I am checking at my pictures folders, and noticing that I have been to a few gatherings with my Zumba buddies lately. We are qualified to be in the veteran category. We are all having a  different marital status. There are married, single, working mom, housewife, grandmother, divorcee, and widow. We share the laughter, fun, joy and happiness when we are together.

Picture just was taken yesterday at Port Weld Seafood Restaurant
Now you all know why all aunties going for exercise, but sill can't lose much weight. It is all because of these gatherings. We sweat and we work out so hard every day, but when going for gatherings, we feast ourselves with scrumptious food. How on earth we can lose weight like that?

Joke aside, we enjoy the outing together actually. Occasionally we also have to let ourselves to enjoy life and be happy, no?

Happy weekend, folks!
