Ending 2010

The greatest distance to cover in any race is the distance between your ears.

Melaka Coastal Charity Run was our (Carrie & me) last official run event for the year 2010. While most of our running buddy (like Pui San, Yim, Wendy) decided to end their 2010 with a "bang" at MR25 (S'pore), me and Carrie decided to take it slow, fun (and cheap) at Melaka. A week before this, we were just at Penang doing the Penang Relay Run with the Pacemaker Fun Team and with YKK as our team captain, we got 8th position !!! Roll back two week before this; it was 12hours Melaka Walk which is just a week after S'pore Marathon. So in total, 4 weekends in December we were away from home, and I was just mentioning to Carrie how I miss sleeping on my own bed over the weekend...

Looking ahead I do not know what 2011 will be in store for me. My running activity have surely increase much this year and it have brought me much joy, travelling to new places and getting to know many new wonderful friends. In term of personal development, I do felt improvement in many areas of my life except on the career part. Working life in 2010 has been very routine and monotonous for me. Somehow the "challenge" in work seems to have left me and there are times I find this very frightening. I used to enjoy and so looking forward going to work everyday but not so recently. Not too sure leaving my current comfort zone will help but it is one of the very serious items in my agenda which I plan to review when doing my 2011 resolution...

To friends who know me, I wish you & your family a Blessed Christmas and a very Healthy New Year. To people whom I might have offended, I wish to say I'm sorry. Life is too short to make enemies and thus' if I did or say stuff which could have offended you, please do let me know so that I can apologize to you personally. To friends who are reading this blog, alright I'll try to blog more often and thanks for supporting & reading it. To friends who have supported Good Samaritan Home along side with me, helping me to raise funds, baking cake for charity sale and spending time with the children, kamsiah manyak-manyak !!! To my KEC buddy, namely Yeong, Lee, Sofia, Sandra, Christine, Leng, Lim & Mellisa, thanks for the many hours of exciting bodyCombat together and all the delicious dinner after the class every week. And lastly to my chopstick baby Carrie Teong, thanks for loving me unconditionally and taking care of me when I'm sick, I LOVE YOU dearly...

As of now, my confirm participation for next year (2011) outstation run are the following ;

and with a via ferrata Mount Kinabalu trip in April being planned, I'm very sure it will keep me busy on all the weekends again. Still considering whether to skip Penang Marathon next year for Bangkok Marathon, and Singapore Marathon for Angkor Wat Marathon. Depending on time and finance, will have to decide on this later...
