BIG Congratulations!!!

Last Sunday, two of my very good friends ran the historic Berlin Marathon...

Hence, this post is dedicated to the both of them :)

My fellow penyeri, Nyna is a sub 5:30 marathoner now! 
Another PB for her!!! Woot woot!!! :D

My oprah lady, Rosey completed the marathon even with her knee injury...
Managed to BBM her while she was running... So proud of you rosey!!! :D

Also congrats to Alvin, Jeff and Viki for completing the marathon! :) 

The awesome medal...
All of the pics above were taken from Rosey's FB

The three of us had a mission this year and that was to run one of the 5 World Marathon Majors... And Alhamdulillah, both of them have accomplished that...

And it's going to be my turn supersoon... 

Oh, the anxiety!!! *Drama* :P

Quote of the Day...

"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognising and appreciating what we do have."

- Frederick Keonig - 

Happy Monday everyone! :)

Date a Girl Who Runs ;)

"Date a girl who runs. Date a girl who chooses to move than to let the world pass her by. She will cover the roads with you while talking about the mundane to the profound without gasping for air. She will notice and appreciate the little things: the extra cushioning of her shoes, the softness of the pavement vs concrete, or how much cooler it is to run 30 minutes earlier in summer.

She loves to sweat, and the sore legs, and, of course, the hefty breakfast along with the good conversations that follow each run. Always have a cold, wet towel in the cooler waiting for her. Surprise her with her favorite post-recovery drink, low fat chocolate milk, and if she runs an extra 5km, spike it with her favorite coffee from Starbucks. In her simple joys, you will find an abundance of happiness."

A well-written piece that all of us running ladies can or would want to relate to... :)

And guys, please take note! :P

A Perfect Getaway

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

One of my things to do for the year was accomplished over the weekend....

The Countdown Has Begun...

53 days to go until Race Day...

Alhamdulillah, I managed to clock in a total of 94km during the fasting month... *Patting myself on the back* ;)

Need to focus and be a tad more discipline when it comes to clocking my mileage every week from now on... (Trying to sound serious :P) Even with all of the yummy raya food... Hehe... 

I am so thankful that my parents, family and dear friends have been very supportive of my trainings so far and truly understanding for missing out on past or present get-togethers or functions... 

I admit that there are times where all I want to do is just anything but running... But, I figured that I am this close to running one of my dream marathons... I should be grateful to be given this once in a lifetime opportunity to do so... :) 

And I am!!!

So I guess it's fair to say that you gotta sacrifice a lil' in order to get what you want right? :) 


Can't wait! :)

Question of the day...

Happy Monday everyone! :)

Here's one thing that I would like to ask my readers and friends out there:

"How do you open up your heart and let yourself FEEL the presence of love again when you have conditioned yourself to block any emotions that might loom from within?"

Will it be through:





Please share your thoughts on this... Because I am still trying to figure out the answer to this... :) 

I do wish that there's a Dummies book for this :P
