Running by the beach sounds so romantic, doesn’t it? The sun glints off the water, the sounds of crashing waves….Yeah right! Sure, running by the beach is idyllic, but it isn’t all movie-montage stuff..Why just take my word for it? Be there or be square!
So, you signed up for the PD Coast Run which will be held on 4 June 2016! Congratulations! On making an excellent choice! It is going to be a great race. But maybe right now, some of you runners may be thinking, what the heck was I thinking registering for this race?
If you are having that moment, then you need to write this down……Go ahead and I will wait….Go and get one of those sticky note-it things.Hmmmmmm……okay, cool..you are back! LOL…..Here’s what you need to write down:
- It is called “Larian Pantai & Seribu Senyuman” what more can you asked for? All smiles after all the miles..LOL
- Run for a cause- Bank Rakyat has sponsored 20 children from “Yayasan Anak-Anak Yatim Daerah PD”, they will be participating in the 8 KM run
- Woot….woot……Virtual Run- You can also run this race anywhere and anytime and a special token will be given during the post dinner.
- Carnival atmosphere- Thank you! Thank you! Terima Kasih! To all sponsors such as MILO, REVIVE Isotonik Drink, PD Food truck, PD thistle Hotel etc.
Running is truly about routine, consistency and persistence. Show up and get it done and you will improve. Do it even when you don’t feel like doing it! Don’t think about the next run, just RUN THIS RUN! You will have some good runs and some bad runs. You won’t feel well, or you will be tired. But every run, if you open yourself up to the notion, will surely teach you something. In fact, there really are no bad runs. It is just a learning opportunity when it doesn’t go according to plan.
So, if this is your first race, just keep lacing up, if you are recovering from an injury, be kind to yourself and if this race is a new distance for you, know that training will help you get you where you want to be. This race will be an amazing experience!
