Today, inside my bubble ...

Our running community, Kota Kemuning Pacers had an impromptu run this morning at 6.00am. Didn't mind being there so early in the morning. Yawnnnnnn ...

Many of the regulars couldn't make it ... some had gone outstation, some were not well. The current dry spell has cause such a thick haze to envelope the environment that many were falling sick. To make it worse, there's the current outbreak of the H1N1 virus.

Anyway, my participation was double-edged. As much as I wanted to burn off those excess calories collected over the last few days' bingeing, I was out to prove something to Ray. That I'm capable of achieving a longer run than I normally do.

While preparing for the run yesterday night, I had voiced my intention to run 6 laps around the Kota Kemuning Lake this morning. Each lap being 2km. Ha! He gave me a COLD SHOWER! Ray commented that I was being ambitious. We'll see about that!

It's not always that I go for a long distance run or any further than 5km. Well, I'm so proud of myself today. I completed 6 laps as intended. All within 1 hour 40 mins and still standing. I would've added another lap had it not been because of the pain on one of my toes that was escalating.

YES!!! Ray, you know I don't like running but that doesn't mean I can't do it. So, next time, don't underestimate me, Dear.

WOW! Wenny! You did it! Great Job! Whatever the reason may be, I suppose, once we set our mind to do something, and we did, we should celebrate! 12KM for 1hr 40 min is a fast one leh. Bravo!
