Terry Fox Run 2008

2 Nov 2008: This is a once a year event where I have to get my ass off the bed at 5:30am. After done with all those morning routines, I drove all the way to Lake Garden where I have picked up my buddies at Bandar Kinrara and Taman Desa along the way. Looking out through my car’s window, this is a lovely morning I was thinking. I can feel the chilling fresh air running through my face, making me sneeze occasionally. I couldn’t remember clearly the last time I woke up and drove out at this kind of hour, perhaps was 5 months back during the Cameron trip?

Due to the smooth traffic, we reached Lake Garden 5 minutes before 7am. However, guess it wasn’t early enough that the nearest car park was already full. This gave us no choice but to go for 2nd nearest car park where we have to walk for around 1km before reaching the starting point. Perhaps we were kind of too early that the crowd wasn’t there yet. While waiting for some other friend to reach, we took our breakfast as banana and mineral water were provided. Apparently, the place started to fill up with fellow participants at 8am++. The host of the event was Yasmin Yusoff where she has given some speech and led the warm up exercise before the run started at 9:15am.



It was a fun walk and run of 3.5km where I’ve started with walk for the first few hundred meters due to heavy human traffic. It took me less than 30 minutes to finish the run before I could enjoy some free food again where I’ve taken some muffins, curry puff, and Milo this time around. I felt good every time I finished a run that I could feel myself a few kilograms lighter. Unfortunately, my group of friends is so into food that they’ll normally go for heavy meal after the run. It takes less than an hour to wash away all the effort, perhaps gaining more than that. Maybe I shouldn’t join them for food next time around, should I? But good food, how could I resist it?
