Ok let's see.....
I finally gotten my bus tix down to Singapore for this Sunday's marathon settled despite the initial Oh-my-gawd-I-totally-forgot-to-buy-air-tix-and-how-the-hell-am-I-going-to-go-Singapore fiasco.
However in the same fiasco fashion, mom accidentally booked only the going-ticket....not the coming-back ones.....which again left me in a bit of a worrying state.....but thankfully was able to hitch a ride with David back to KL.....of course, he was more than happy to offer since I actually offered to drive him, his passengers and myself back.
Thankfully I like to drive long distance.
I'm sure David is pretty thankful for that as well since he's trying his darnest to sub-5, before his IM Melbourne early next year.
Having that settled.....(plus settling my leave from work).....I am definitely at a peace of mind.
Last Sunday's working at the Nike 10km Run didn't turn out as bad as initially thought....thanks to the power of POSITIVE THINKING (excuse me if I start to sound a little new-age-Rhonda-Byrne-NLP-shit, but I swear it works!).......
Not only was I stationed at the "easier" medic tent (we only got hassled for muscle cramps and blisters), my medic tent was situated right next to Auntie Jenny's volunteer tent and the ice cream van.
Aside from the medic peeps (GlobalDoctors) feeding me breakfast and steady supply of coffee, Auntie Jenny fed me Domino's pizza (don't ask me where these volunteers get them from) and my friends kept giving me free ice cream they've scored off the ice cream van (part of the sponsors, I suspect).
Oh...and I got paid! Hoorah!!
Work finished on time....and I was home in time for my late morning nap prior to lunch!
(hey...it's tapering week for my Singapore Marathon....I say I need more rest!)

* Caught eating ice cream while at work. Well...it wasn't busy and I thought it was awfully rude to reject free ice creams!!!!
Not been taking his meds, obviously....
Anyway, I was sifting through the store room and found several pairs of running shoes that I no longer run in for reasons I rather not discuss on this blog, I decided to bring them to the Running Lab at Tropicana City Mall to donate them for the Project Love Sneakers that would benefit Karen's Run For Orang Asli.
Each pair (in wearable condition!!!) donated will receive a RM100 voucher for their next running shoe purchase (minus Asics) from Running Lab.
This program ends 11th December 2011. So if you have a pre-loved (or never been loved!) pair of running shoe still in good condition and you are looking to dispose of it, do drop by Running Lab and hopefully, your old shoes will be given new life (one way or another) by the Run For Orang Asli organization.
* My old Brooks Axiom and my Nike Triax. Hopefully they will find a better home than my store room could offer.....
* Get your old shoes in by 11th December 2011!!!
* Well....I kinda used one of the vouchers to purchase another pair of "Lizard"....this time in black. Hopefully Daryl will be nice enough to lengthen the second toe-sock to accommodate my Morton's toe....(coz I absolutely love what he did with my old blue "Lizard"!!)
* Say hi to Frank when you get there. Don't bother mentioning my name....you ain't getting any special treatment that way.....(and this ain't that kinda blog!!!)
On a more sombre note, last Sunday my friend Cyn was at Phuket participating in the Laguna Triathlon and was unfortunately involved in quite a major mishap that includes her....her Specialized bike....and a road divider.....and is now still in hospital admission in Phuket.
I'm praying for her speedy recovery and I do hope she'll be back well and able....and raring to go back in action.

On a less sombre note, I'm having major Chatime addiction and I'm up for any get-togethers that include a stop-over at Chatime!!!
5 days until my final (official) race of the year.
I'm gonna be SO depress after this....sigh.
