This sunday is the olympic day run at berakas stadium. I am going to join in the fun.
Honestly I haven’t run the distance in a while, heck i haven’t done distance running in a while. but i tested myself this week 10 round of the running track (4km) and I did fine in my own pace. although slower than my speed when I did the marathon in 2005.
incidentally, i found a few articles stating that running statistically improves lifespan
Anyone one to join? I put an event invite on my fb
