SlowMovers with our T-shirt at Culture Village .. makan

At clock tower and fountain

Chan and I arrived on Friday, to get hotel. And thanks to me, we got a good hotel, City Theme Hotel. Way way better than Milo and very near to the stadium (about 1.5km). The rest of the geng arrived on Saturday. Javier and Herbert stayed at Casa Cuba.

Chan warming up

Yeah Angah...

Chan and I jogged to the stadium at 6.00am. Angah and family left half and hour later, naik kereta (apa la, tak macho langsung).

The 21km was flagged-off at 7.00am. Ten minutes later, 10k and then the 5k.

Angah arrived with a smile

Ha... PM Tey, selalu amik gambar orang, ambik gambar dia pulak

The Medal - Front

The Medal - Back (Su's medal)

Chan, Javier, Angah and I are medalists. Herbert, a first-time runner, did not manage to make it into the top 100. Izzat pun sama, sebab kategori dia ramai sangat budak sekolah. It's ok you guys. We are SlowMovers. There will always be a next time.

At Casa Cuba

Later after the run, we all went to Casa Cuba. It is an old colonial house. Reminds me a lot of St. Mary's School. Nice and cosy place. There are paintings of Cuban artists, cigar room and some other things. Cool stuff.

SlowMovers plus guests

That's it from Melaka. I would also like to thank our guests Gaspar and Mina for coming along. Hope to see you guys running in the next event.

Next run... this Sunday....Adidas King of the Road. C ya....

11 voters

7 (63%) said yes

4 (36%) said no

The people has voted, they still want Chan to be the President, at least for another year. Congrats Chan and please aa.... next time buat booking hotel, pastikan hotel tu HOTEL, bukannya rumah tumpangan. Sekian, terima kasih.

KL10k Run 2007

Date: 22 July 2007
Time: 7.30am
Venue: Taman Melawati
Runners: Chan, Jaya, Su, Javier, Rama, Along, Angah, Alang, Adam, Agus, Estelle and Piyush.

One before the run

Right... sorry for the delay, cause I've been caught up reading the lastest and final book from the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Not gonna tell you how it ends...

Our Indonesian SlowMover, Agus, who brought a friend along, Piyush Patel from the States, came down (or is it up??) from Singapore and joined us for the run. Fairul came too, although he was not running, he took some pictures. Kira our unoffical cameraman la.

I'm on the move ... slowly

Along and Angah... posing is a must

Agus and Alang.. the Indon and Italian (ye ke?)

Anyways.... after changing directions at the starting line for a couple of times, the run finally started at 7.30am.

The Backstreet Boys

The Spice Girls

Medal - Front

Medal - Back

Guess what, it is not a 10k run after all, was about 6k to 7k only. So by 8.30am, everyone has arrived. And to put icing on the cake, everyone got a medal. Yeah......

The SlowMovers

I can't say this was the worst organiser so far, but there are some things that they could improve on. You know, basic stuff like luggage station, toilets, which direction should we start... you know, the usual. At least they have water at the water station. Now that's good enough for me.

That's it for this event. Next, Melaka Historical Run....

Seremban Half Marathon 2007

Date: 15 July 2007
Time: 6.45am (Chan sorang je 21km), the rest 7.20am (11km).
Runners: Ibu, Izzat, Busu, Chan, Jaya and Edmond.
MIA: The Thing

Off we go ...

We, Chan, Jaya and I, left Bernama around 2.30pm. Chan la lambat, nak makan la, buat backup la. Cam pompuan la Chan.
Hotel Milo??!!.. hm..... you can thank Chan for this

We reached the hotel around 3.30pm. Discovered the hotel's name is Hotel Milo. Ni la dia padah kalau suruh si Chan buat reservation for accommodation. The hotel is so freaky, when we checked-in, we saw a few men queing for god knows what. Tu la, biasa sangat duduk rumah tumpangan si Chan ni. The only good thing about the hotel is that it's in a walking distance to the field.

We had beer .... rootbeer

We had beer as a treat for ourselves. Nahh... we had rootbeer at A&W. Ok what Chan, although it's not the real thing, but it feels like it kan??? Tengok gambar la, Chan mata tertutup, Jaya mata dah kuyu and I couldn't stop smiling.

Hai, biasala.. mesti posing

Chan, crossing the Women 21km category finishing line

Jaya, that's my finishing line la...

Me, jumping for joy ... and it's not even my category

Don't know why, but after we had our 'beer', we went coo-coo. Went to the field where the finishing lines are, and started taking pics. Konon-konon kita sampai dulu la, tapi instead we crossed the wrong finishing line. Ambik gambar beria-ia, tapi salah. Apala...
Slowmovers, getting ready
Woke up around 5.00am, left the hotel around 6.00am. No breakfast, jogged straight to the field. Handed-in our reporting cards and then we sent Chan to the starting line.

6.45am, Chan just left the starting line, Good Luck Chan

Running with smiles...

O please god, just let me finish the race...

Exactly at 6.45am, Chan was flagged-off. At 7.20am Angah and I pulak. Then Jaya, Edmond and Izzat. Oh yes, by the way, I changed my category from 21km to 11km. NOT because I chickened out, but I was adviced by the Coach so that I won't stressed myself. It's a good thing too because I was having that time of the month and I wasn't feeling great. Err... too much info....

The Slowmovers

The Medal - Front

The Medal - Back (Chan punya tukar 11 jadi 21 kay...)

At the end of the race, everybody except Izzat got a, errr, medal (?!). I can't say it's a medal because it doesn't have that ribbon to put it around our neck. Or does it still call a medal even without the ribbon? I don't know, help..... somebody please clarify this for me.

Izzat dikecualikan because he's actually running in the men open (11km) 18 and above category. Dia punya category (9km) dah habis nombor that's why he's running with the older boys. Sampai pun dah kira bagus dah. Tu pun dia dah macam nak pengsan, pucat lesi muka dia. Anyway kita kan slowmovers. The slower the better.

And on that matter, I rasa Chan kena turun takhta sebagai el presidente because he did great for his 21km. He managed to finish it under 2 hours, 1h54m to be exact. Hello we are slowmovers, and as a president you have to show that you are as slow as us. Or better still, slower. I would like to nominate Nina as the President because so far she's the slowest. Amacam? Hahahahahaha......

Registering for Melaka Half Marathon

We, Angah, Izzat, Chan and myself, sempat register for Melaka Half Marathon. Anyway, there's no 10km run for Men and Women Open and Jaya still not ready for 21km. So Jaya tak masuk. Angah 10km and Izzat 7km I think.

Before we leave ....


We had breakfast immediately after run sebab Izzat dah terhuyung-hayang dah. Steady la Izzat....

Eiii.. buruk lantak betul si Chan ni la

Checked-out at 11.00am. Angah and family terus balik KL, and we the Fantastic Three pergi makan somewhere along the highway and then to Bernama.

Hip hip horey for Angah and family sebab sempat turun Seremban for the run walaupun dah last minit. Baru la slowmovers namanya. Congrats Chan for doing 21km under 2hours. Welcome back Edmond after a long while. And Jaya, err, thanks for being our driver.

Next run, KL10k at Taman Melawati, this Sunday.

Our young medalist

Ida and the boys
Best organiser so far. Every 3km there's a water station. Sampai ada satu stesen (untuk yang lari 10km je ok) ada pisang. Memula ingat diorang buat lawak ke apa, rupanya betul la dia bagi pisang.

Selalu lari dehydrated, today lari perut kembung dengan air. People at the water station even cheered for us, best.

Today Chan, Javier and kawan Izzat si Rahman tu dapat medal. I'm not sure pulak about Jaya. Anyway, congrats boys (termasuk boy tua).
