There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe
I registered for the marathon just for fun. The aim for medal is also for fun. But doing something for fun does not mean u do not need to do it wholeheartedly. Hence, the practise. In life, nothing come for free. At least, not in my life. (Ooops...tetibe sensitif plak..almaklumlah...baru achieve another dream today :P ) Anywayyyyyy.... here's the story.
Woke up at 3.30am to the sound of thunder. Imagine that. (-_-) But, we already made a pact that we will run, rain or no rain. Thankfully, the rain ceased at 5am. While on our way to Queensbay, we could already see those who completed the Full Marathon(which start at 2am), and they have medal around their neck! Super Jeleous! We got a pretty nice parking spot and head off to the surau area. Once done, it's already 5.55am, so, we head straight to Eastin as the start for 10km will be there.
There's a cute incident. The kids, who are entering the junior category joined our queue. And the organizer need to repeat many times asking them to step aside as they will be disqualified if they start together with us. Some of the kids did not really listen to the organizer, so they remained there among us. We tried to identify a few kids and help to brief them that their category will start at 6.30am. Cuteness la these kids!
So, here is our route for 10km run.. We started from the red arrow there. Feeling a little energetic, i ran all the way from the start until the X there. Can u see it? the red X. After that i started to slow down, but still run intermittent with walking. So that i don't loose the time.And the strategy worked indeed! Unbelieveable lah! Gosh.. if only i could record what i am saying in my head.
"Don't give up Zue..Don't you dare"
"Keep on running Zue. The moment u stop, that's the end"
"Zue..if you don't get the medal, will u hv regret for walking when in fact u can run"
"See..the old lady also cut you Zue"
"What the Fish..got kids cut u some more"
"Don't let Marlina get out of your sight..Go catch after her. Run!"
Thus, i was so overjoyed that when i hit the finishing line, i actually said "Woohooo". And then... can't stop smiling while waiting for the medal. Surreal... :D
Pergh. Ucapan macam menang 1st prize jer. :P
Well....1st prize or not... i m really happy i did this. :)

Last week, we had an impromptu activity to Kerachut. Impromptu is it? Maybe not.
Initially, some of the group members plan a hike up Gunung Ledang. Unfortunately, Gunung Ledang was closed to hikers, or maybe part of it only, not sure. So, the group then opt for the backup plan to Penang instead. Kak Ilah somehow got promoted to be the organizer and she came up with this really full action packed route. Normally,we just went to one destination, either Kerachut or Monkey Beach. But seems we had guests coming from a far, KL and KK, so, here goes:-
Trekking Teluk Bahang -->Kerachut->
Boat --> Monkey Beach -->
Trekking --> Mukahead Lighthouse --> Teluk Bahang
(Start ~9am. End ~3.15pm)
