Today I Started Running

Don’t know really how I got myself out the door just on two legs today, Decided to leave Samson and Delilah to rest at home after having taken both of them out in the weekend.

Thanks to a couple of friends on Facebook, I decided to have a go at running.  I remembered, the last time I did it, was in June during the Standard Chartered KL Marathon… Ran 10km and came in huffing and puffing for air thinking like that was my greatest achievement ever! 😛

What a far cry it was as I ran my 10km from home today.  Easy run, with a couple of sighseeing stops but managed to do 10km at roughly the same time with less effort.  I gotta thank the cycling I’ve done for this.  But, then again I must be really, really slow compared to seasoned runners. 

The best part was, I enjoyed myself… realising that it was my own 2 feet that carried me through the paces… moving, running, walking, jumping.  At the time, I felt liberated just like how a Parkour performer feels like… 🙂

Think I’m gonna be loving this… with a couple of Marathons coming in Nov and Dec… Penang Bridge International Marathon and Malakoff Marathon, I gotta practice and make it good. 

Next year, I attempt 25km… 🙂

Here’s my very first solo run…

Named my Bikes… Samson and Delilah

The official names of my beloved pair of bicycles are of course the first names that came to my mind. 

Samson, the chunky, tough, no funny business, black, serious, MTB and Delilah white, petite, smallish, fast, (currently temperamental) roadbike.

Samson & Delilah
