Bro ck77,

My last Run was in the World Kidney Day Run 2012 till my cough caught up with me and made my stamina down.
Next one got to wait while I slowly recover and build up my stamina again.

Did PJ Dawn 12km at 4am. It wasn't right to start a race at 4am and finished the race when the sky is still very dark.

PJ Dawn...no atmosphere, no Pom Pom squad, no isotonic drinks, no milo, very weird..why bother held in Stadium Kelana Jaya when we were only allowed to use toilet and outside area...why not use inside stadium.....

Anyway....I did enjoy my run.... :Dancing_banana:

Hi,

Any newbie guide for running? I got myself a proper pair of running some time ago but i did not find time to run. I was thinking of alternating between running and cycling.
