First Aid Training CPR/Choking/Recovery Position organised by The Rotary Club of Seremban

On the 19th June, 2019, A first Aid Training on CPR/Choking/Recovery position was organised by the Rotary Club of Seremban and the event was held in Seremban Prima from 11.00am until 7.00pm.

The event began with a bang! A warm up session conducted by PRO A3 FITNESS took the stage. The energy was palpable from the moment the PRO A3 FITNESS Team step on stage. The participants ranging from students, teenagers to the “young at heart”, were absorbed in the music. They moved flawlessly to the pulsating rhythm of songs such as ‘Let’s get loud’ by JLO.

After the warm up session ended, we took a group photo, something that I always look forward to…The memories and moments to cherish in life. Right after that, the St. John Ambulance’s took over the program. We were briefed with techniques and ways and the team also demonstrated  the CPR/Choking and Recovery Position. As a participant we had the opportunity to try and practice those techniques as well. We were guided and taught the right and proper way to handle and demonstrate the techniques. A short question and answer session was conducted briefly by the team. It was indeed a very interesting and informative Training Program.

I believe that one of life’s important skill is First Aid Skills. When someone choked, suffered a heart attack, or drowned-giving First Aid immediately makes a difference between life and death. After we had completed the basic course, we were awarded a certificate and a goodie bag.

Do you know that if someone stops breathing, he/she only has 4 to 10 minutes before he/she becomes brain-dead? Chances are that the ambulance will not come in time. Therefore, it is very important that CPR is administrated immediately.

Human normally do not think of calamity until it strikes!But emergency does happen and it’s best to be prepared. You would want to know that if your love ones are in danger, you will have the necessary skills to save them.

KL Possible Fun Run 2019 Event/Race Review

Setting double alarms, waking up at the crack of dawn (okay, rolled…..tossed……turned…….grumbled angrily) out of bed at 3.00a.m. Analyzing every aspect of my bowel movements (or lack thereof) stressing about transportation, parking. Standing in line for porta-potties. These are all normal things we typically experience on race day!

I always believed that not all runs/events are meant to be raced. Last weekend, 16 June 2019, The KL Possible Fun Run was organised by S. Ganesan and team Ashkhu Glow Event Management. While you select a few that you want to race, others are meant purely for the enjoyment factor, such as the KL Possible Fun Run 2019. We decided to relax, have fun and take this one easy.

Hubby , kids and I were in good time to collect the bibs, met the organisers and chatted with some runner buddies. The start area was amazing as I could feel so many different emotions.

The event started off with a warm up Zumba session by PRO A3 FITNESS. The crowd was amazing. All walks of life, from children to mommies and daddies and also the young at heart were moving and dancing to the beat. I just love the energy of races, it is so special and I love to see running bring so many people together to share such a positive common goal.

At sharp 7.15a.m., the 6KM were flagged off. Then at 7.30a.m, at the starting line for the 3KM, my children felt like lions waiting to be let out of their cages. They were rip-roaring and ready to go. Ready to race?In deed…. Anjali, Amisha, Avinash and hubby were ready to rumble!

Padang Merbok running was beautiful and rather undulating. Lots of little ups and downs. It was a sunny day and this part of the race was in the shade, which was nice. I loved how different it was, being part of a running event with my “sole”-mate,hubby and my children. It’s a special feeling, sharing and bonding as a family. My hubby and son finished the race strong! This race is strictly a ‘Fun’ race, so no clocks, chips or stop watches were involved. As always, it’s nice to run by feel and solely for fun!

As they approached the finish line, there was a nice crowd cheering everyone on with lots of children wanting hi-fives and runners who had finished staying to cheer people on. It was great to see so many families with kids take part in the run, and running with a smile.

It was a fun event with a crowd of 700 participants. The route was nice , even though, the roads were not fully closed but the organisers ensured all safety measures for the participants. There were lots of marshals and volunteers on duty, water stations were well organised, great little course, fun volunteers, nice running community.

It was so nice to care about our quality time, family bonding instead of keeping pace throughout the race. We made so many awesome memories, laughed until we cried and got some really awesome videos and pictures. Would I do it again? The KL Possible Fun Run- Now everyone can run! YOU BET! What was the best part? ALL OF IT!!

A great race doesn’t come from a PR or a new attained distance, but more from the memories and lessons you take away from them. As always, I was reminded of how much I love this sport and how special it is to share it with my favourite people ever -Hubby and Children!
