Columbia 7km Charity Fun Run 2012Posted: May 22, 2012
My last run was more than 6 months ago, when I saw that this Columbia Charity Fun Run was for 7km and it was in Seremban, I figured I should be able to do it. So I registered for it. I did feel lazy when it got nearer to the date but since I promised Windy that I will run with her, I kept my word.
Got there at around 7am, got my number.
The 3 runners! From the slowest (me) to the Super Fast (LiLi ) to the the fastest (Windy)…. yes! She runs like the wind!
Look at our numbers! Didn’t even notice it until now…257 and 725… unfortunately 257 can’t run as fast as 725
Look at all the goodies waiting to be claimed!
This is my fourth race. Congrats to myself!
The race started at 8am. Even though it was only 7km, it wasn’t easy to run because it was so hot. The route didn’t have much shade and it was so hilly. There were no water stations at all until the end of the race.
My aim for this race was not to stop running, doesn’t matter if I run like a tortoise . I did it! (struggled but I did it)
When I got to the finishing line, I was given a bottle of 500ml of mineral water. It was the best drink ever!! I finished it in a few seconds.
The first 250 finishers get a teddy bear! I didn’t expect that I will be able to get it…Ha Ha… so happy!

The goodie bag was filled with gifts from a lot of sponsors.
Overall I think it was a successful event, it would have been better if they had started the race earlier and had water stations. Personally I would also prefer the tee shirts to have ladies cut, it was huge!
