34 years young..

Life is short.. very very short. Live it to the fullest. Take care of your mind & body. Never EVER smoke. Be happy. Treat others with kindness & compassion. Smile often. Be open-minded. Do not carry emotional baggages. Be appreciative. Indulge in your hobbies. Have goals. Drink German beer (not too often). Stay horny.

I'm celebrating my birthday with a nice long relaxing run tonight..

Hot Blonde!

Guess this is the closest i'd ever get to having a picture taken with a hot blonde.

She's Jamie Oberman, daughter of the new water polo Coaching Director. You can see him in the corner of the picture.

And boy.. do i look fat!

Chi Running

I highly recommend this book to anyone who runs.. whether you're a seasoned runner or a beginner. The writer incorporates the principles of Tai Chi into running.. hence, Chi Running.

Most people tend to think that you would run with your leg muscles (power running). This book teaches you to run efficiently with your core muscles (chi running) and i tell you, it really really works.

I would really like to go into details as to why i believe in this, but i don't want to seem as it like i'm earning commission or anything!

Role Model

I have a role model now. His name is Mr Chong Liang Chew. A participant in the swimming instructor course at my workplace.

61 years old, retired, practises Chi Running, participates in Biathlons & Marathons. His energy and exuberance is that of someone half his age.

If a man almost twice my age can run marathons, i don't see why i cannot do the same.. and in some way, he makes me look forward to growing old.

Is it hard?

Justina, Angel (new colleague) and i were waiting next to a bakery for another colleague to return from the post-office during lunch. We were poking fun at Justina (she has big boobies) about how she could promote the hotdogs by putting the sausages between her 'assets'.

In retaliation, she hit me on the arm.. 30 seconds later, she asks.. 'Is it hard?'

Side-splitting laughter from everyone.

At peace

I was running my usual 10km route last night. When i was nearing the end point, i was feeling so relaxed and at peace that i realised that i did not want to stop.

So i ran another 3km..

New Year's resolution

1. Participate in Standard Chartered Full Marathon
2. Start saving for my move to Hawaii.

To assist with my training for the marathon, i purchased the Adizero Breeze.

I'm going to have a hard time deciding between the Asics and the Adidas when it comes to the big day..

Anyway... Happy New Year people!
