Men's Health Run 2013

When our celebrity Running Queen Lina alerted me to sign up the Men's Health Run, I was too late to dream of participating in the 12km Run. It was all snapped up so fast! Never mind, my honey & I still joined the 5km Fun Run. Actually, I was very greedy for their fabulous Goodie-Bags and this event was my 3rd time joining the fun at Putrajaya, never mind the light rain!




(Pix 1) I thought I could fool everyone about appearing on the magazine cover! Lina teased me that I was too big sized and probably fell out of the front page! Malu lah! Muahahahahahaha!....



(Pix 2) There were many usual stalls selling booster stuffs related to the running lifestyles like cleansers, corn flakes, drinks, gymnasium, slimming stuffs, minyak urut and even kasut! GO LIKE NEVER BEFORE! It was the first time I saw this kasut's products and they were so light & colourful. I could be seen 1 mile away wearing them.




(Pix 3) Fitness First had a booth which was very popular. It looked as if most runners are already members! So the FF easily rounded them up to lie down for a very tough competition of endurance!




(Pix 4) So many fellas freaked out and went flat kaput on the floor in 2 minutes. This friend still showed his thumbs up!



(Pix 5) This competition attracted the most crowd including the 2 clowns to cheer on after 4 minutes has passed! It was so tough to hold their tummies so long!




(Pix 6) I came to cheer the oldest competitor who is over 50 years old. In the end, he WON!!!! All the other younger men with 6 abs and huge arm muscles fell flat after shaking vigorously in trance.  It was not easy okay.





(Pix 7) This Kasut-Man walked everywhere and attracted many ladies to pose in front!





(Pix 8) My honey preferred to kick the Kasut-Man from behind. Ouch!




(Pix 9) Suddenly, the skies went dark and it started to drizzle lightly making the 7000+ runners worried. The 12km participants were flagged off at 8pm and followed by the 5km runners at 8.20pm.



(Pix 10) Putrajaya is only beautiful at night. I always disliked driving around in the heavy traffic during office hours as I often got lost in big circles trying to locate the Ministry's buildings and offices. Bluek!






(Pix 11) It is very romantic to walk across this lover's bridge which Tun M wanted to create our very own "Pont Alexandre III" bridge in Paris...



(Pix 12) I was proudly declared the Champion Runner by the Ayam mascot. Here I was doing SK's Ah boy signature pose!




(Pix 13) Look at the nice Goodie Bags for ladies that comes in very thick canvas material with handles & draw strings!



(Pix 14) The men's Goodie Bag is also made of thick canvas with a rugged look! All the freebies came along with a free magazine, milk, oitment, shampoo, calendar, water bottle and etc.



(Pix 15) We were given free Milo drinks, foodies, bananas and this very yummy delicious cookie from TOUS les JOURS! Oh boy, I have to head over to their  bakery soon as I really love this big sized heavenly cookie. Have you been to their newly opened bakery in Bangsar??

    7. I vote for pink. You and celebrity queen Lina would make a lovely pair, though your admirers will get migraine watching neon yellow plus neon pink. :D

    8. Nice to have colorful shoes why too shy never try never know though Bananaz may not know the color its sure brightened up the run. Gotta check out this brand as all along would go the ones with a 'tick' maybe to go for a change. Favorite color is still purple. Was passing by a boutique and told Mango the purple dress is nice and she said 'blue lah'. Ooops the lady infront was like laughing to herself when she heard our conversation.

      Delete
    9. terang baru best la....at least night run people cannot see your face can still see your shoe leh.

    10. I always want a Skechers shoes. The more colourful the more I like. So, Skechers shoes are in my wishlist now. I must go and get one pair of the Go Run & Go Bionic for myself and one pair for Jin Jin by 2014.

      I hope Santa hears me.

  8. Photo #1: very true with what Lina commented lah, Anay looked a bit too 3D for that 2D backdrop.. i've seen another friend, who is perhaps few inches shorter, posed just nicely into that magazine cover with his 2D pose.. that one can fool everyone!! but if Anay likes to be on the magazine photos, Thambee can recommend a few websites to do the photoshop dei~~ :D

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yeah good idea... They gave me a copy of that magazine. I can super impose myself.

    2. Anay should do SK's most favourite pose, may be Anay can fit into the magazine cover.

    1. I didn't buy anything cos I parked my car miles away! After the run, the crowd was crazee and sweaty! When rubbed bodies, I so geli lo.

  11. Photo #3-#6: wow, FF challenged the runners to do plank?? it's indeed not easy dei, needs very strong core muscle to be able to do this, i mean doing is not that difficult but maintaining and holding at that position for minutes sure will kill you.. that is what people do to strengthen their core muscles (i.e. have a flatter and firmer midsection).. but Anay didn't take a photo of the winner?? and what prize has he got??

    1. The winner quickly stood up and and his friends swarmed around him!

  12. Photo #7-#8: wow, what a huge shoe!! is that the mascot of the event?? ooopss, doesn't look like it, but mascot for the brand Schechers!! why not that once-their-spokesperson Britney Spears appearing there to motivate the people and make more sales for the shoes?? now come to think about it, perhaps Letchumy will make a good spokesperson role indeed huh?? look at her pose, fantastic aje!!! :D

    1. That mascot was a young Indian boy inside and he was fainting from the heat! How did I know that he was an Indian? All his Indian friends followed him and I heard the shoe spoke in Tamil. Must be SK's cousin bradder la! Muahahaha

      I am so outdated now. I never heard of Schechers!!!

  13. Photo #9-#11: oh yeah, it was raining on saturday night and i was at a relative's house having open house party.. i was feasting on fried beehoon and rendang and fried chicken wings while Anay and 7000+ other runners were running in the drizzle.. actually i guess it would be nice doing that, since it's more cooling?? and seeing Putrajaya in the night in the rain is kind of a rare experience no?? oooh, "Pont Alexandra II"?? i think it would be more interesting if we are allowed to turn it into "Pont Des Arts" with all the padlocks, agree??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Adoi...That padlocks looked exactly like those in China. So damn ugly la.

      You sinful Thambee was feasting while I was dragging my feet gasping for O2...!!!

Photo #12: woot woot!! bergaya betul lah.. said it and got it done!! that's how i like Anay, never just give empty promises like his good brother kukubird, muahahahaha!! eih, but your right hand a bit salah lah, it should not laying down 180° but slightly raised up at a 90° position lah, then only Anay will look more like running dei.. and you called that Nando's Ayam Penyet?? muahahahaha, later they will come and sue you like the case of McKFC lah~~ damn funny Anay!! :D

  31. Hello Sir!
    7000 runners? You gotta be kidding? They all came from Selangor only or all over Malaysia? I've never seen such a huge group of runners.

    And I've never been to Putraja neither. I was told that the place is beautiful and well-planned. Is that true?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 7000 is a medium sized running event Willie.

      Borneo International Marathon sees 5000 runners registering this year but that is consider quite small.

      Big races sees around 30-40,000 runners.

      This is not a school organised running events. It does attract a lot of runners, from not only around KL but Malaysia and there are a number of overseas participation too.

      Singapore running events see more runners. Our 30,000 runners at SCKLM is a small number comapred to theirs.
