There’s always the first time for everything! This coming weekend, I will be going for another running adventure with my better half! The ATM Half Marathon 2017 which will be in held in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan on the 12th November 2017.

Through the ATM Half Marathon, participants can get up close and personal with the different branches of the military services namely Army,Navy and Airforce.

I am truly honored to be given the opportunity to be one the official blogger and to be able to run a 21 KM Half Marathon and share my journey and adventure with my fellow runners. Just imagine, I will have the opportunity to take pictures with members of the elite GGK Commandos, pose a selfie with their rifles and who knows……a PB!

See you there this Sunday 12th November, 2017! For more information,

Expect the unexpected- P.S.P King of Forest


If you’re going to put yourself through hell, you might as well do it in heaven, eh? I took a brave decision recently to take part in the P.S.P King of Forest. All things have limits, but one should always go beyond them. I was pretty excited to be able to do this! Running a trail run is very foreign to me, and I am no way a mountain goat!

The start line was very overwhelming. Hubby wished me “good luck and see you at the finish line” and bang we were off! I was surrounded by over 2000, probably all of them were pro and elite runners.There was everything the seasoned trail runner would want-uphills,single track and stream crossing. It had rained the night before, so parts of the trail were really muddy.

I was grateful for the opportunity to be in that moment at that time. So grateful for a body that allows me to do this, for a mind that chooses to push on when it hurts. So grateful for my other half who also shares my crazy love for running..the feeling was breathtaking!

The rolling elavation gave the runners a climb and descent adventure as they navigate the different distances of the trail. P.S.P King of Forest attracted a drove of runners from the newbie trail runners looking for a comfortable place to start their journey into trail running to the seasoned elite runners looking for competitive ambiance and their weekly milage. P.S.P King of Forest is a scenic haven for a trail run with well maintained trails and its own share of the wild and forested trails.

The trail into the 5km was probably the most treacherous, with a big up hill that were coated in mud by the time I got to them. What’s a trail run without muddy shoes? My shoes were caked with mud and I thought I might fall. I held onto trees and roots, I made it! The view..oh wow! I could see the KLCC Twin Towers…magnificent…It was tough, and steep, but wow the scenery was incredible!Like being inside a painting. I stopped to catch my breath and continued my journey….

The crowd around me definitely wasn’t shy about walking the uphills. And none of us could resist taking pictures. I met Gunawathy along the way and we ended up being “3 sekawan”- we rolled and climbed and slided and glided through amazing scenery. Doesn’t get much better than that! Chatting with her helped the miles go quick and it was nice having someone there to help keep the pace strong!

Our trail was well marked and there were marshalls to guide us throughout! There were also signages the entire route. A good amount of shade and aid/ water stations were efficient and a lot of fun! fun! fun! We also had a few easy water/streams crossings which was really awesome to hear the sounds of the water flowing-just like in a spa…the sounds of nature…


Rate rating: 5

Well-marked, pictureque and above all else, challenging! Small waves helped keep the trail from becoming too crowded.

Organization: 4

Plenty of parking. (Thank you, dear organizers for keeping our cars and properties safe) There were lots of RELA and Marshalls on stand by and on duty. Friendly and energetic organizers got the start, finish and awards off without hitch.

Overall: Recommended Trail Run

The right amount of punishment and reward! Very well-coordinated for the first annual.

Off road running is just……different! Road and trail are pretty far removed from each other. I love both in different ways. Leave your headphones at home, take off the watch, ditch the phone and let your inner “Jedi” use the trail running force!

Trail running will change you for the better, and when you get home, you’ll feel the benefit of the trail’s nature therapy.

All in all it was such a magical experience!


The P.S.P King of Forest


Bored of running on roads and fancy trying something a bit different?

Lace your shoes and stretch those calves. I am looking forward for my 2nd trail run at IJM ICE Gallery @ Pantai Sentral Park, Taman Rimba Bukit Kerinchi- P.S.P King of the Forest. Running trails is totally different to running on roads, and I know it will test my balance, strength and endurance.

Every trail is different and I need to constantly adapt my techniques as I encounter new obtacles. I know this will slow me down, but I am not going to stress about the time and just have an awesome time. There is no better feeling than running amazing trails and enjoying our amazing forest and nature.

Trails have so much to offer. The only requirement to run trails is to be up for an adventure. Experience, technique and pace will all come in time. Be smart and be open for adventure because the trails will give you only as much as you are willing to take. Never stop exploring!

Twincity Marathon- Race Review

First thing is first……What a beautiful day for a half marathon! Congratulations to everyone out there who gave it their all today! I hope everyone had a great experience!

Last year 2016, has been filled with many runs and my 1st half marathon, of course….Maybe it’s because I just can’t say no or maybe because I am slightly crazy, but last sunday- marked my second half marathon The Twincity Marathon in Cyberjaya-Putrajaya. This is a great race for beginners and experienced runners alike. It really is a nice course to run. I know I’ll be back to this run again! It is definitely a race you should experience at least once. I would do this race every year if I could.

The organisers did a good job with registration and race pack collection. It was held at D’ pulze for 3 days. On the first day, a slight technical error happened however, it was rectified ASAP, then it was smooth onawards. The volunteers always know what they are doing at this race which is nice. KUDOS to all of them!

Sunday morning, after a sleepless always my alarm rang at 3.03am….ehem…lucky number- wanted to do a PB for sub-3 (LOL) anyway, we arrived at 4.50am because we were afraid the traffic is usually pretty heavy. There were already lots of cars coming in but we ended up getting a great parking spot, quite near to the start/finish area. The RELA and volunteers did an awesome job with the car parks and traffic control. There were lots of runners socializing as we walked around to see the start area. The race start area was very organized, and you really need to be, with a race of this size. Hubby and I did our race ritual- porta porties. The facilities was plenty. No issues on queues or long lines. Very sufficient. After that, we were led by a cool team of Zumba dancers for the warm up zumba session. Fuh Yoh! I really enjoyed it….I was wide awake and I think my muscles were jumping for joy too! The zumba session lasted for 15 minutes after that we got into our corral. It was a pretty packed corral as I believe many runners are always shooting for a sub 2 hour half marathon.

fb_img_1484565876009.jpgThe flagged off was on time, though we could barely hear the emcee due to the speakers however, with all the hype and excitement-the runners just wanted to start the run…..The weather was nice for running. Then at 5.30am sharp we were flagged off! The corral typically goes out pretty fast and then people start to somewhat seperate. A much thinner crowd, by the time I hit the 2 km marker.

The course also had tons of volunteers handing out water and energy drinks. I did enjoy the course. You are never alone during the race as there are always people of the same pace no matter what your pace is…

On to my race…..well the half marathon continues to be my nemesis and I do not know why….The plan was…hmmmm……I actually had NO PLAN! Just to complete and finish the race..LOL..with this being a nice flat course…turns out a positive attitude goes a long way! I just kept reminding myself to relax my shoulders, I smiled and had fun with the ups and downs…the hills not the emotions..LOL

A nice little surprise awaited the runners at the 16 km, Nasi Lemak! Glorious…yummylious…..”Nasi Lemak Anak Dara” was served at the stop. Many runners made a pit stop to reload. Seriously, it was a cool and awesome sight to see during a marathon race.

The last 3 km was a struggle! The route was tougher in the second half of the race, but I was able to negotiate those pretty okie. The morning was cool but a little humid so the plentiful sponges were really helpful.

The organisers did a tremendous awesome job with the traffic control and marshaling! The runners safety were their top priority and that was really great! Thank you dear organisers! The start and finish were efficiently handled!

On a more positive note, I was so touched by all the cheers from passing made me feel awesome even though I was struggling! I appreciate each and every one of them and I am truly sorry I did not cheer back, I did in spirit..! But I was very focused on keeping one foot in front of the other. I hope you enjoyed my pain-“sakit” face! Ha ha ha!

I was hoping for a better time today and possibly even a PB. We are runners and we expect more of ourselves after all that is why we do it and that is what fuels the fire to keep training. So needless to say this has only fueled my fire more and I will be back to training to hit my running goals as I am not content with my current  PBs and not ready to throw in the towel!

So whether you had an AWESOME day ( I heard of a lot of amazing PBs today at the Twincity Marathon today!!) or not so awesome day, I hope you can learn from it! That is the amazing thing about running, there is always something to learn and grow from!

Running season is here…..BRING IT ON! until next time onwards and upwards!

Thank you Twincity Marathon! YOU ROCK!! Woot woot!

Run! Chrisy! Run!

It happens to every single runner there-sometimes you just lose your motivation to run!

You start a training plan and you are excited to hit every pace/mile/step perfectly. You set goals and know that you will do anything you possibly can to hit that goal. But then somewhere along the way you lose motivation (a little or a lot) and it is harder to get out for your run (but you do it anyways because runners are strong like that!)

YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Even the most ambitious or professional runners among us are confronted with situations in which they feel unmotivated. In fact, they might struggle daily-just like you and me!

But then, they somehow manage to break through the negative spiral, get up and start running anyways. If they can do it then there must be a way for you and me to do it as well! I’ve been in your position! Felt the same hopelessness and lack of motivation, but I learned how to effectively break free from it..

How?? Well…..Hmmmmm….VIRTUAL RACES! I join virtual races to boost my running motivation. Sign up, lace up and run….and once I have completed my virtual run…..goodies awaits me…like medals, Running Tee, bags, goodies etc…

So, this morning, I ran 10km and completed my 1st Virtual Run for the year 2017, The Unicorn Virtual Run!

The Unicorn is a lagendary creature that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a large pointed spiraling horn protecting from his forehead. It also symbolises strenght and excellence. While I was running this morning, on my mind and in my thoughts were R.Kelly’s song; I believe I can Fly. Since it is a unicorn virtual run- this song just kept popping in my head….RUN CHRISY RUN! FLY! CHRISY! FLY!

It means you should really believe in yourself and you can do anything you want to achieve your goals! I am not a fast runner, I run because I can-It is a reminder to me, that nothing is impossible and that you can do all things if you just believe in yourself and most of all Have fun! Lots of fun doing it!

So, remember..when you are about to hit that wall, go sign up for a virtual run/race! Lace up and run….it’s worth it and it is fun! Log on now to sign up for the Unicorn Virtual Run at

New Year! New You!


It’s a brand new year! Happy New Year 2017!

Running is boring! It’s hard. It hurts. It’s lonely. And it doesn’t give you immediate results…That’s my inner voice speaking….LOL

While we don’t think any of these are necessarily good excuses (or altogether true!), we don’t understand it’s not always love at first run for anyone who ever decides to lace up and hit the pavement.


Whether you’re a total beginner intimidated to take those first steps or you’ve recently taken a wrong turn straight into a running rut, I am here to help you get moving in the right direction. Let me share some tips for finding fun on the run.

1.Forget the past

Whatever feelings or fears you associate with running-leave them in your dust! Being a runner isn’t about speed or skill; it is a mindset.Whether you run a 4-minute mile or a 15-minute mile, all it takes is a pair of shoes and the desire to get out the door!

2.Set a goal

Establishing a goal for each run ( even if it’s just to not walk!) creates benchmarks of your progress and a sense of accomplisment. I used the lamp post when I was getting started, each time I ran, I told myself to make it to “one more pole”. Eventually, you might find yourself setting even crazier goals.

3. Buddy up

Yes, it can be isolating to run alone, but there’s plenty of road to share. Find a friend, catch up while running and the miles will fly by as you chat! Studies have shown ‘ couples who run together, stay together’…..LOL

4. Discover the road not taken

If you ate the same food for lunch everyday, you’d inevitably get bored, and it’s the same with running. Running is the best way to see new spots and explore somewhere new on foot!

5. Race. Race. Race.

Pick out an upcoming race and actually pay the registration fee. Paying cold hard cash for something makes it harder to slack off on your training. With so many events to choose- from colorful fun runs to muddy races to marathons- most runners, just like me, getting into the race environment can be incredibly motivating and inspiring!

fb_img_1483590258485.jpgMaybe running isn’t for everyone, but you won’t know until you try- and these are some ways to at least have fun while doing so. When you’re getting started, the fight is as much mental as it is physical. You want running to be fun, right? I assure you, it’s not going to be. But once you can find the mental strenght to push through the initial tough ones, the runs that follow will truly be a blast!

And for my first run for 2017- see you there at the Twincity marathon on the 15th January at Cyberjaya. I will be attempting my 2nd 21 KM half marathon. Woot woot!




Lombok Marathon 2016 – Race Review


Race day is like every day in school. You need to do the best you can to make sure everything is prepared, including your outfit.The race day and a school day are the culmination of your preparation. Sometimes it’s slow and steady, but you are always moving forward. Sometimes the finish lines feels great and sometimes you don’t think you’ll ever get to the finish line. Either way, there will always be another finish line on the horizon.fb_img_1481099565735.jpg

To me, race day is a funny thing. It can be the source of your greatest triumph or the cause of your deepest sorrows. It can make you love yourself and hate yourself at the same time. Run the race because you love to run, not because you want to achieve something!

The buzz around Lombok Marathon event in the weeks leading up to it was awesome and rightly so, as the Lombok’s first ever marathon there was a lot to be excited about.

It was raining ,when we arrived at the Lombok International Airport on Saturday, 3rd December 2016, a day before race day……you could almost feel the nerves in the air. My hubby and I managed to arranged transportation by ourselves at the airport-using the official Lombok Marathon car to collect our race packs and to take us straight to our hotel- Kila Hotel at Sengigi. The transportation cost IDR250,000 (Rm55.00) Many International runners that came and took the same flight with us from countries like Kenya, Australia etc also had to find and pay for their own transportation. Just a suggestion to the organisers, maybe next year the organisers could consider a free pick up shuttle bus/van or car to the race pack venue or hotel.

The race pack collection was very well organised and getting the timing chip/bib and t-shirt was a piece of cake. Hubby and I even managed to grab a “KFC” take away. After collecting the race packs, we headed to our hotel – Kila Hotel,which was the official hotel and got into race day preparation mode! Only to discover at the reception, that the 10 km starting point is about 10 km from the hotel. To make matters worst, Kila Hotel is the official hotel for Lombok Marathon and the road closures will start at 2am until 10am. A rush of panic went through my body…My nightmare!I flew all the way from Malaysia to run 10 km race- Lombok Marathon only to miss the race because there were no transportation provided by the official hotel or the organisers! Well, the plus side of this was the 21 km starting point was just a block away…..Hmmmmm…..

Think, Chrisy! Think, Chrisy!What to do?? Am I the only 10 km runner staying at Kila Hotel? There must be a way!  A solution! I hadn’t anticipated the cluster that transportation to the race would be…

Hubby told me to calm down, take a deep breath… check in the hotel….take a shower and have an awesome dinner in Lombok..What else can we do…….? Leave it in the hands of the Lord..

After dinner, the reception contacted and informed us that there were two other 10 km runners from Kila Hotel that will be leaving by 4am tomorrow from here and I could share the transportation cost with them. ( each of us had to pay IDR200,000) seriously, kindly provide a free shuttle bus/van or car to the race venue in the near future, as promised in your marathon promotions.

I had a sleepless night,thinking I was gonna miss the 10 km race…..LOL! Race day morning, my alarm rang at 3am, I jumped out of bed and I fell flat on the floor…OMG! I felt like humpty dumpy…Thank Goodness, I did not break anything…..phewww..My Hubby jumped out of bed because he thought we were hit by an earthquake…..hahahahahah….LOL

Our morning routine was swift and quick, we managed to buy 3 in 1 milo packets and gulp it down our throats and made each a peanut butter sandwich and dashed out the room and went straight to the hotel lobby. Said our goodbyes and wished my hubby all the best for his 21 km and at the lobby, I met two awesome iron ladies…Devi and Mute. We shared the ride to the 10km starting point. We clicked instantly and got along well……They were a ray of sunshine….


My race didn’t start until 6.45am and we arrived at 5am and I hate waiting around (no choice, though) but actually the time went by super fast and before I knew it I was lined up and ready to go.

The hype, the people, the crowds and the emotions! This trip was truly a once in a lifetime destination race and eventhough I wasn’t able to “race” it. just running it was such a gift.

This race offered many picturesque views of the surrounding hills and small towns, with bustling energy from locals throughout the course, all the while never having to go off-road. The route was just right as well, with roughly three thousand marathoners and the 10 km as well as the 5 km runners.

The course support was incredible. It was perfectly flat. There were a trillion signs/markers and volunteers all along the streets. There were school students who were singing and marching with their bands, cheerleaders- cheering and singing! Absolutely fantastic! At every 2.5 km were water stations and Pocari Sweat and the scenery was truly amazing! It also boost my motivation by clapping for musicians along the course, high-fiving kids on the sidelines and thanking volunteers at the water stations. Kudos to them for waking so early to cheer us on!  “Semangat! Semangat!” They kept cheering- means…GO GO GO! Don’t give up!

Then at 800 meters to the finish line, I saw my fellow runner from Malaysia who was holding the Jalur Gemilang- he was walking…So I ran by his side and said….”Let’s go….Let’s ran…..we are almost there”! We held the Jalur Gemilang, filled with honour and pride…we ran towards the finish line…and wooooooot wooooot……We finish the race strong, honored and proud! What do you know, we even made headlines…!


Collection medal was systematic, Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10 km and 5 km runners were seperated after the finishing line and we were led to seperate pens to collect our medal, drink, bananas and goodies.


A large scale event with over three thousand runners nicely done up. I thought that there were many hydration zones given that it was only a 10 km race! Kudos for that! Distance markers were well placed. The volunteers/ students/ bands were truly amazing! This made Lombok Marathon fantastic and memorable. The medal itself is heavy and what makes it unique- it is a double medal- awesome pawsome!

People say that there are many reasons that we run, I run because I can….and so can you!

Will I do this race again? Definately! Maybe a half marathon next year!
