Impacting Poverty Elevation ! :)

Hey folks, a slight devertion from my normal running stuffs, this is touch upon poverty, being one whom has personal experience growing out of poverty. It's was parent's whom migrated from India to start a new life in Malaysia in the late 60s. They literally lived from hand to mouth per say bringing up two kids.

But I think poverty far exceeds what I had to endure when I was younger. Many barely have enough to go by or go around and in today everyone has to pitch in to help the less fortunate. I came this young entreprenuer, Devan who's run an website called Its an awesome sight doing's its bid and a bridge to people in the developing countries (i.e. Cambodia). There hand made products from folks in rural areas whom market their products via this portal. I think this is a very good effort to cut of the "middle man" and the revenue is attributed to the makers, which is absolute awesome.

So do the RIGHT thing, support this cause :)

Marathon Season is Coming !!!!!

Its here !!! Well almost here .... the season kicks of with my first in April which is the Bidor Half Marathon, then it should be the Malakoff Run in Penang and KL International in June. Phoowwweeee .... thats quite the order ... hehehe but nevertheless have signed already so no execuse.

Amped up the training though still not up the distance and speed that I am targeting for which is 2:30:00 but I am confident that as the dates get nearer I will be prepared. Am increasing my training frequency to twice per day in the morning and in the afternoon on alternate days. Also making sure that I am eating properly to ensure that my system is fine tuned before the run :)

I know I haven't posted for a while know, even such I have still been running diligently and listening to my body and happy to report that my current weight is 80kg, I was pleasantly surprise when I look down at the weighing scale and whoopeee ... I hit 80 !!!!! Muaaahhaaaaaa ! *Pat *Pat on back :)

Till next time the adventure continues
