FROM 11 GOING 100... My Story...

 Why do I run? For fun? What makes me addicted to running so much? Why should you run?
I still remembered my running journey started 5 years ago. I was super obese, 108kg, always get easily fatigue and restless. Migraine & chest pain were my best friends back then. Dizziness and feltso unfit because I seldom exercise. Used to jogging casually and played volleyball during my degree years in UKM but I did not stay active once I started working.

This is me back then in 2009-2010... Gosh!
However it all changed when Rashid poisoned me with all his finisher medals & running tee. He asked me to sign up for me first running event. It was Energizer Night-mare Run 2011. April 2011. Back then, I had no idea at all on what kinds of running shoes to wear and running apparel. So I just wear my football jersey and cheap brown Adidas shoes which I bought during a sales in Suria Sabah, KK. Hahaa... Such a cheapo! LOL






My first run in ENR 2011 with We Are Runners group =D
We had to run Sepang International Circuit twice to complete the 11km distance (1 lap = 5.5km). It was tough. I huffed and puffed along the way. I still remembered that I ran with one big 100Plus from the WS during the 2nd loop. Hahahaa! Xpernah dibuat dek orang. =D

After the run, we had to queue such a long bee line just to get our finisher medal & goodie bag. All the sudden the crowd started to create a riot & swarming the medal/goodie bag station. Hungry impatient tired runners were angry runners. I could see some goodie bags were thrown mid air, just like we were in a refugee camp waiting for the aid. Even the policeman or security came to control the situation. It turned to be a disastrous nightmare for first timer like me. Definitely unforgettable. I went home empty handed, quite dissapointed. Later on the organizer did refund the fees & couriered to us all the entitlements but the damage has already done.

However that did not dampen my spirits to stop joining running events. I has been bitten by running bugs already. I ran almost everyday especially when I studied in USM Minden Penang. The track was my bestfriend & I even ran around the campus during the weekends. Running is my therapy after a long day in the lab. Stress free totally.

With lots of running & strict less carbs diet, I managed to lose 22-24kg from 108kg to 84kg in 2014. Tried Herbalife before, did not suit me well. I felt a lot more confident, more energized and no more heavy migraine & chest pain. Super Yeayyy!
My Transformation Due To Running & Dieting....
Rashid introduced me to his ex-colleagues from UMBI UKM & Inno Bio during every running events and the rest was history. Team We Are Runners (WARs) was my first running group. Although we seldom training together but we always make time for Breakfast Day Run @ Picnic. Rashid, Aafong, Fadhil, Haniff, Raja Del, Ariff & Abu Bac, Kamal, Meg, Maz and Fard Jill. We've came a long way...

My first Half Marathon event was during BSN Putrajaya Night Marathon 2011. I was tempted to try this distance for the first time because of its alluring red Brooks finisher tee. I managed to complete it within 3h25m if I was not mistaken. It was tough. I had several cramps & chafings along the way. Unprepared with any energy gels too. I could still remembered that I could not walk at all after I've finished the run. I took off the shoes immediately. My feet were killing me at that time. Hahaha! Truly unforgettable moments. Rashid & Kamal were there waiting for me & became my witness. After that the rest was history.
Victorious! Half Marathon Virgin no more hohohi!
 After I hooked up with several HMs events, such as Taiping "International" Marathon, Seremban HM, PBIM 2011, PJ Dawn & SCKLM just to name a few, it's time for me to take up the next distance just to challenge myself. The terrifying daunting Full Marathon! Jeng... Jeng... Jeng...

The Funtastic Four during 2XU Compression HM Run In Singapore 2013 - My first run in SG!
At first I did not have the guts to register for FM but after I was confident enough to finish my first FM within 7hours cutoff time during Asics Penang Bridge Internatonal Marathon 2012. Despite improper structured training, I finished my first FM in 6h23min++. Had several cramps & nearly hit the wall moment but I persevered haha! You can read all about it here. That was definitely my life changing moment. From there, I became so addicted to run as many FM as I could year after year. I even travelled solo to run in Ayutthaya Marathon in 2013. I had my PB there. It was an amazing run! I love running in Thailand so much although the street dogs were a bit intimidating & loud, hahahaa!

A selfie with all the roosters in Ayutthaya Marathon 2013 hoho...

My Full Marathon Virgin in PBIM 2012... Berjaya gak "racun" Rashid untuk masuk FM supaya pecah "dara" FMV together2 hohohi....
 
Tokyo International Marathon 2015 was my first Abbott World Major Marathon (WMM). Applied it through ballot system and mine was selected to participate along with other 35,000 runners from all over the world. I was super thrilled and excited as I've never run in Japan before. Especially in Tokyo. I trained so hard and really really hope to finish within the 7 hours cutoff time. The atmosphere during the event was unforgettable. It was super happening with so many cultural shows, choirs, dances, cheerleading and musical shows along the route. Even the spectators were amazing. I could not stop from giving high fives and said thank you to all the public who kept on cheering at us along the route. It was nonstop. I felt my smiling muscles was cramp from smiling and wishing back at them along the way. So many things to see and saviour along the way. They were very generous in providing us with so many sweet tit-bits & drinks throughout the route. I was so relieved that I crossed the finishing line in 5h53m42s. It's a Sub6 y'all! The weather was cold just nice for a run.



After all the full marathons that I've paricipated, now it's time for to come out from my comfort zone. I want to feel what it was like to go beyond 42.195km. Will I crumble and falter? Will I triumph and succeed? How does my body will react to those ultra mileage? How far can I go?
Therefore I was determined to sign up for Back 2 Endurance 2013 (B2E). More details HERE.... =)



Received my first Silver trophy in B2E 2013... It was tough mentally & physically huhu...

It was my first Ultra race. Basically you have to run as many loops as you can within 12 hours cutoff time. One loops was around 2.3km in Lake Garden. Luckily the weather was not that hot during the race day. There were so many photog during the day that I really enjoy pushing the limit. Had a quick KFC for lunch break. U can read all bout it here. My feet felt like burning from pounding the hot tarmac/concrete path. Hahaa... Bad choice of running shoes, perhaps? Ah well, I managed to get that Silver trophy for nailing 50.5km after been running 23 loops! Yayyy for me... Got my first finisher trophy... I think I should make a comeback soon for this B2E race. Next year je lah...


I missed running in Pak Chong so much hohoo!
 TNF100 Thailand 2014 was my first 100km duo category. Teamed up with Dr Razinah, both of us endured the crazy hot + madness 50km trail route. The view along the way was definitely breathtaking & spectacular. The hills were alive. The heat was unbearable. Felt like running in Gobi dessert. Hahaa! Thank goodness we finished the run injury free in 19h40min++. Although we exceeded the accumulated cutoff time of 18hours, we were glad to finish our run in one piece. Heard there was a runner who had a heat stroke & hospitalized on that very day. Such a priceless trail ultra experience for me. You can read all about it HERE...




 TITI50 Ultra 2014 holds such fond memories for me. That was my first 53km ultra road event. After I went through the route map & elevation, I signed up for the early bird rate. This event was one week after TNF100 Thailand, I was so thankful that I could still run after the huge mileage last week. I love being flagged off in the midnight. It was cooling thanks to the heavy downpour in the late evening. Felt like a dream running towards the famous Genting Perez, Jelebu. Oh I still remembered I was running like a headless chicken coz I want to chase the cutoff time 9hours. The last downhill run was epic! So grateful to reach the FL under 8h45min. Hurrahh!

However my running ultra journey was not all filled with sunshine, rainbow and unicorn, all dandy... my first DNF was during Penang Ultra 2014 84km. Yes I was insane enough to run around the island 84km challenge. Blame it on my under training, mileage and not so well prepared hahaa! DNFed at KM48 2km before the next CP @ KM50... Lesson learned the hard way... I was so freaking tired that I slept in the sweeper bus all the way to FL & continued my beauty sleep in our hotel.  I slept like a log! That shows how tired I was... Hoho!
DNF? It's not the end of the world... Can always bounce back stronger next edition... Keep on trying!
 Since then, I had experienced several more DNF episodes. GNU 2015 (reached the FL 15min after cutoff time), R68 Challenge 2015, Pink Ultra 100km Duo 2016, Kyoto Marathon 2016 & recently Putra 24 H Challenge Run 2016 hoho! I had to admit that DNF was sucks... It felt bitter but I have to accept the fact. Suck it up. Reality hurts. There were so many factors. All I have to do is identify the main causes & overcome it in the next edition. There's no short cut to success yaa... U have to earn it yourself. After all, it was not the end of the world. We grew wiser and better from them.


100KM worth of  sweats, almost tears & bloody blisters hohoho!
Putrajaya 100 Miles 2014 was my first virgin 100KM Category. I did not know why I signed up for it in the place. Still remembered that Arman, Sis Suzie & late Abg Zack had faith in me and encouraged me to take the challenge. The experience along the route was truly priceless. Nearly hypothermia, blisters galore, chafings, bloody heat challenge, sleepiness. It's all mind over matters. I'm so glad I had Ben as my pacer for the 2nd half 50km. He pushed me to keep going no matter what. The final 20km felt like forever. I could not walk straight because of my blisters & sleepiness. I just want to lie down anywhere & doze off! Finally managed to complete my Epic 100km journey in 25hours++! Syukur Alhamdulillah...

I'm very thankful to have so many positive person along my running journey. Those who are never stop cheering up for me, those who are truly believed in me. Runners are very special person. They were very optimistic, never give up so easily, stubborn bunch I must say. Thanks to all your critics & comment hoho!


Geng2 Kaki Charoots Dibanaz hohoho... Hadap jelah...
Happy runners always support each others & took lots of picture among us... My first FM in BSN PNM 2013.. Insaf!
 So what's next? All in all, after 29 HM, 28 FM & 13 UM, including all the DNFs in 5 years of running, I think I will keep on running no matter what... Just want to have lots of fun while running regardless of the distance. I was thinking of doing 100km again soon when I'm ready for it. Still have no guts to try 100km trails knowing that u have to train lots of time running and hiking in trails & mountains. That's a HUGE commitment. Yikes!

Running is fun... Running never ends... Never let anyone take the fun out of running... Regardless of the distance... Till then, toodles!

LUCOZADE SPORT™ KICKSTARTS ‘FUEL YOUR PERFORMANCE’ CAMPAIGN TO EDUCATE AND SUPPORT DREAMS OF CITIZEN ATHLETES

No. 1 isotonic drink in the United Kingdom hosts running clinic and introduces four inspiring Malaysians as ‘Fuel Your Performance’ Advocates
Mr Lee Hon Tong along with Dr. Mahenderan Appukutty and Lucozade Sport Advocates.

It was truly an honour and privileged to be invited to attend this Lucozade Sport™ ‘Fuel Your Performance’ Launch Campaign organized by Suntory Beverage & Food Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. and In.Deed Communications Sdn Bhd. I was late to attend the running clinic by Edan Syah due to some serious nature call No. 2 hohoho... But some how I managed to run one loop (1km++) around Taman Lembah Kiara TTDI. That was my first time running here. Definitely will be coming back here again once the horrible haze vanished into thin air soon hoho...

Some of the runners, jogger and stroller along the lake in Taman Lembah Kiara, TTDI
After the running clinic, I met so many runners/bloggers during the event. Got to know some of them too. Here's the recap of what's going on during the launch campaign.
 
Feeling2 penjual air Lucozade Sport sat... Harap2 lariss jualan pagi nih uols hohoho!
 Kuala Lumpur, 23 April 2016 – The Lucozade Sport™ ‘Fuel Your Performance’ Campaign got off to an energetic start today at its first running clinic with Pacesetters Athletic Club, SMART Athletics Club and Tadonamo Triathletes. The exclusive event was the latest in a series of campaign activities designed to engage with Malaysian runners and an ongoing effort to bring its scientifically-proven formula to more than 1 Million Malaysians through ground-level events and sponsorship of popular events such as the recent Reebok Spartan Race. Participants had the opportunity to learn from seasoned runner Edan Syah and exercise & sports nutritionist Dr Mahenderan Appukutty, Faculty of Sports Science and Recreation from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) who shared their experience on training and nutrition for sports enthusiasts.

“Helping dedicated athletes to achieve their performance goals is an important brand value for Lucozade Sport™. By supporting accomplished athletes and inspiring others to achieve their own dreams, we are sharing resources, skills and knowledge that encourage Malaysians to lead more active lives,” said Lee Hon Tong, Regional General Manager, Suntory Beverage & Food Malaysia, Singapore & Hong Kong. “We embarked on this campaign to reach out to Malaysian citizen athletes from all walks of life and our ‘Fuel Your Performance’ Advocates are exceptional individuals who have accomplished many goals in addition to the demands of work and family. They serve as inspirational role models for aspiring runners to kick-start their own dream, because they are living proof that dreams can indeed become a reality.”
Welcome Address by Mr Lee Hon Tong, Regional General Manager, Suntory Beverage & Food Malaysia,                Singapore & Hong Kong
In addition to sharing his personal training strategy, Edan also said, “It has taken me eight years and nine marathons for me to realise my true potential as a runner – it’s a long process but I believe it’s never too late to start as long as you’re willing to train hard. By sharing my experiences and life lessons from being a ‘citizen runner’, I hope to inspire the younger generation and see Malaysian marathoners in the 2020 Olympics!”

Edan Syah was introducing himself and sharing his achievements and dreams.
As April is also celebrated as Nutrition Month Malaysia with the tagline ‘Eat Smart, Get Fit & Feel Great’, the clinic was also a fitting opportunity to stress the importance of eating right for energy and performance.

“High-performance athletes require a dietary plan that’s tailored to support and enhance their training. This includes consuming an appropriate amount of protein to help to build, maintain and repair muscle tissue. Hydration and energy are also essential factors for runners as stores of carbohydrates in the body get used up,” explained Dr. Mahenderan as he provided structured guidelines designed to help participants fuel their runs with the right nutrition and hydration
 
Dr Mahenderan gave his informative talk on the importance of good diet, nutrition and hydration.
To maintain consistent energy levels, approximately 30-60g of carbohydrates are needed every hour – this would be equivalent to 1-2 bottles of Lucozade Sport™ for each hour of racing. Its science-based formulation of electrolytes and carbohydrates is specifically designed provide enhanced hydration to fuel athletes during prolonged exercise.

 To attest to the importance of training, nutrition and hydration, the four ‘Fuel Your Performance’ Advocates are accomplished athletes who have achieved numerous accolades.  Their examples further advocate the importance of achieving one’s dream:
 
Lucozade Sport - 'Fuel Your Performance" Advocates
(a)    Edan Syah started running eight years ago. The self-coached runner qualified for the 119th Boston Marathon 2015 and finished with a time of 2:41:55, and became the fastest and the youngest Malaysian to have run the Boston Marathon! At the Tokyo Marathon 2016, he achieved a personal record of 2:38:55 and is now ranked as the fastest marathon runner in Malaysia for 2016. Edan aspires to be the youngest and fastest Malaysian to complete the 6 World Marathon Majors (WMM) [1] under 2hours 45minutes by 2018. 

(b)    Mohd Amran bin Abdul Ghani has worked as a fire fighter since 2001. In 2014, this dedicated athlete came in first in the IRONMAN 70.3[2] at Putrajaya and again at IRONMAN Langkawi with a time of 10:15; at both races he was crowned Best Malaysian. This comes on the heels of his accomplishments in Powerman[3] Malaysia where he came in first in his age category for 5 consecutive years, from 2009-2013. Amran’s dream is to race in international triathlons all over the world.

(c)      Mohamed Allie Helmy is a corporal in the Armed Forces who keeps fit because of passion, not only because of his line of work. He was the champion for the Port Dickson International Triathlon, Kedah International Duathlon 2015 and 113 Desaru Triathlon; and came in close as the second Malaysian in IRONMAN Langkawi 2015. Helmy aspires to race in the IRONMAN World Championships in Kona, Hawaii next year. 

(d)     Alex Au-Yong wanted to channel his passion for long-distance running into something tangible for communities in need, so he created the XtraMile Run, Malaysia’s first-of-its-kind 100km charity run. The first event in 2011 raised RM111,000 for StART Academy, and the subsequent run in 2013 raised RM165,000 for the Dignity for Children Foundation. For 2016, his goal is to raise RM500,000 to ignite community involvement, provide education on holistic nutrition to children.

These Advocates embody what it means to reach for their dreams, and Lucozade Sport™ now invites other Malaysian runners to share their hopes and dreams as well via myLucozade@suntory.com
The sharing and meet-up session with Edan Syah was being done in an interview. During this session, the media and bloggers asked several questions regarding his training regime and what's his future plan. It was truly inspiring to get to know him in person and how he started running full marathon. 


After the Q&As session with all the media and bloggers. It's time for a group photo session among the attendees from SMART Athletics Club members and the famous Coach Edan Syah himself.

Edan Syah & his SMART Athletics Club members, Max Lim & I... Awesome 360 Theta Shots!

Yeahh, it was nice meting you Wan... Padanla nampak macam familiar je pagi tuh heheee =D
After the campaign launch, I`m off to Langkawi for a lovely route preview session for running bloggers and lifestyle bloggers too. I`m so glad I brought along two bottles of Lucozade Sport™ to fuel my climb & run session on last Sunday hehee... Thank you once again to Ms. Janet Han for your cordial invitation. Do grab your Lucozade Sport™ today folks. It taste better when it is chilled and cold. So refreshing indeed!
 Together, Let's Fuel Your Performance!

I've conquered 4,287 steps of Tangga Helang Seribu Kenangan powered by hydration of Lucozade Sport isotonic drinks!

Till then, toodles chuols! Muaks...

BDB CLIMB & RUN LANGKAWI 2016 - ROUTE PREVIEW 😍


I was so lucky & truly honoured when Kak Lina asked whether I was interested to join the preview route in Langkawi last week. It's definitely too good to resist offer so I immediately agreed to join the bandwagon. For your information, this was my first preview route as a running blogger. Therefore I was totally thrilled & excited to participate in this short Langkawi trip.

Moreover, the haze situation in Klang Valley was getting worse with ongoing dry spells. So I guessed it was about time for me to go for a quick runcation/getaway from the neverending haze.

So in total there were 15 runnners/bloggers for preview route mission. We took FireFly to Langkawi on Saturday. It was my first time moment too flying with FireFly from Subang Airport (SZB).
Safely landed at Langkawi International Airport.... Excited xhengat nih...
We came, We see, We will conquer this 4,287 steps tomorrow! Today was just for sightseeing only hehe =)
Once we reached the Langkawi International Airport, Ariff Syafik the Race Director himself took us to check on the starting venue in Hutan Simpan Lubuk Semilang. It was an ideal place for local & foreign tourists to chillax, have picnic with family & take a dip in the pristine water during this hot & dry season. 😁
Our home for one night stay there.... Super comfy bed & spacious twin beds room....
We could see Pulau Dayang Bunting from the balcony of GeoPark Inn... Super awesome scenery
After the simple briefing & some photo session, we went back to GeoPark Inn, our official hotel for the trip and getting ready for dinner with the representatives from Bina Darulaman Berhad (BDB) PR Team and  the sponsors.
Happy group photo session after our tummy were so full! Scrumptious dinner buffet! Pic credit to Sis Marlina
Please Do Not Disturb... Bed Time Already... Zzzzz...
I slept soundly during my short stay in GeoPark Inn & woke up to get ready for the route preview session. I just had Runbananaz energy balls & Syco Bar energy bar from Marathonbaker to fuel my climb & run. Did not feel like having a hearty breakfast.
Ritual pre-run group photo as always.... Pic credits to Misz Ella...
After the group photo session with the team & organizers, off we go into the woods to tackle the 4,287 steps of Thousand Memories of Eagle Stairs (Tangga Helang Seribu Kenangan). We were flagged off by 8am sharp.
Let the climb began!
You will seel so many beautiful natural architecture & art along the way up
 The first 1,000 stairs were doable. Easy and not so steep. There were hand rails too along the climb. You know you've reached the Check Point A 1,000 stairs mark once you saw the red signage on your right. Just look for this huge jungle tree.
1,000 stairs mark on my LEFT, while 2,000 stairs mark on my RIGHT side... Had to wear the buff since some nasty jungle fly kept on buzzing on my ears hahaaa!
You can see some of the steps marker along the way up. Count as you wish...
After that, I kept on climbing & counting the stairs too. It was be daunting at some time but you just had to enjoy the fascinating view of the jungle along the way. Right before I know it, I reached the Check Point B 2000 stairs mark. Yayyy! Another 2,287 stairs to go!
Here got some railings.... Easier for you to climb the dreadful mental stairs hahaa!
We still got time to take a breather & took photo together. Pic courtesy of Ariff Syafik
 Along the way up, I was lucky enough to hear the flapping sound of the giant hornbill. It was loud! Heard some noise from the dusky leak monkeys or long tail macaque too hooting from the tree top hehee.
Feeling2 Diva of the Jungle/Stairs on top of the lying trunk.... Hohoho! Thanks to Misz Ella for the awesome shots!
Could not resist to pose on this big tree trunk lying in the middle of the stairs. Hehee... I was totally drenched in sweats! Could already hear my heartbeats pounding so fast hahaa... It was a great cardio workout nonetheless! I would like to suggest you to bring at least 500ml of drinking water/isotonic drinks with you. A hydration vest or bag would be a great option so that your hands are free to use the railings at some stretch.
Self timer pose ala2 dramatik padahal tengah semput ciked time nih hahaaa!
I could not find the 3,000 stairs marks anywhere but I saw the number of stairs on every 10 stairs. That "distance" marker kept me going to finish this climb asap. Quite a motivation I must say.
Wajah pasrah tak berapa nak insaf time nih... Selfie bersama anak tangga ke 3920 dulu hehee!
 When you thought that you have to climb all the way up, you were wrong. There was a nice temporary descent of stairs before you had to climb up again. Ideal spots for me to take a breather & soldier on. From there onwards, it was getting a lot steeper and some uneven steps.
Doing down for a while, felt so relieved a bit.... hihii
Honestly the last 20 steps were the steepest but I could not wait to end my misery as quickly as possible. Hahaa! That's where the photographer was stationed to capture our suffering look. LOL!
Almost there, ho yeahhh! No suffer face please hahahaa!
Finally I reached the top in 2h10min, inclusive of taking pic stops, hydration breaks & selfie pace..  I read the estimated time to reach the top was 2h15min from the information board. Yayyy! Still within the estimated time then. By right we could be able to see Tempur Island from the top but it was not visible due to misty gloomy weather. I drank cold mineral water provided by the organizer & off I go to run downhill.
I`m at the top of the world! So many clouds in the background too...
Unfortunately I could not see the Pulau Tempor from here.... Too misty at that time.... Wajib repeat!
It was already around 10.30 am when I started running downhill. The weather was just perfect for a run. Totally overcast with some fog coming up the mountain. Thus the route was not that steep to run too.
Running downhill was so much fun! Sejuk dan nyaman weh udara di sinih....
 Met some smiling "mountain" cows along the way down. Saw some monkeys too. Me & Abg Zaini walked - ran - walked together while having some chats. The downhill route reminded me of Route 68 challenge. It's totally runnable even for a newbie.
Even the cows were very friendly & grazing happily up here....
Unfortunately my downhill run was cut short due to time constraint. Boohoo... :( We need to be ready to checkout by 1pm.  Plus I started to have a hunger pang after the extreme climbing workout... With my super wet socks, I hopped on the organizer's sweeping van. I wished to climb & run here again soon for the unfinished business hehee... I always love to finish what I've started before.
The elevation profile... Courtesy of Mr Razif yahya....
Thank you so much Marathonbaker Runbananaz & Syco Bar Energy Bars for fuelling me up along the challenging climb...
In total, I've covered 10.5km++ distance starting from the entrance of Lubuk Semilang Reserve Forest and went all the way up & ran downhill. The actual distance for BDB CLIMB & RUN LANGKAWI 2016 were 3.1km stairs & 15.5km downhill run. So I owed this route 8km++ then hehee...

All in all, I had so much fun time traversing the trails of Hutan Simpan Lubuk Semilang via 4,287 stairs Tangga Helang Seribu Kenangan. It felt like climbing the iconic KL Towerthon twice! Hahaa... Minus the stuffiness claustrophobic suffocating climb. Hehee... I love the beauty of Mother Nature here...Even pictures won't do justice... You have to come here to experience it yourself.
