ok, intro done olidi, now i'm going to start with how can i get involved in the running.
8 yrs ago when i was in the school, i olidi have the interest in the running event, i always keep track on what happening in the running world.
but my size at that time really a big matters for me to get into my favorite sports event, but i still involve in the athletic world, i was represent my school in the tug-a-war and the shot put in the interschool competation
back to 3 yrs ago, around Jan' 02, i was 22 yrs with the weight of 122kg ( almost 300 pounds ), height at 176cm, my waist that time was 46 inchs. one of the causes for me to become that size was the place that i worked at that time, i was in the bakery sector, everyday eat hot dog and bun. that time i really suffer not only with my size, movement, the way that people think & look at me and want to find a cloths that suite for me also hard. i was quiet lucky, cause my mom r the tailor, so from there my headache can reduce a little bit.
so, 1 day ( still at 3yrs ago ) evening i go to this tmn bkt jalil to jog with my friend, brandon ( same size with me ) and his father ( former marathon runner ) known as jeffry, his father really force us to run, i still can re-call the famous words that he said "even how slow r u keep on running, don't stop or walk" (which i still practicing today ). that time i really hate and try to avoid to meet jeffrey, but he still manage to get me, every evening he will force brandon to call me for jog, i really dont have any accusess for that. when time go by, after few weeks of suffering, i really can feel that, my weight really reduce, i feel fresh on myself and my difficulty of movement also less olidi.
so in order to maintain my interest on running, i started to join the competation, i had entered most of the competation in the country such as penang bridge half marathon & genting 24 hours walk. from the i started to know some of the member, most of them from permaisuri such as siah (siah leong hooi), ah fatt, kelvin. a lot more lah. cannot remember name. if c the faces i know lah day by day gone, my weight also reduce day by day. kg by kg gone.
until end of 2003, the weight that i had measured was 76 kg, in other words, i had reduced almost 46 kg, height of course still the same and my waist reduce to 33 inch ( around 13 inch). feeling at that just like i was in new chapter of my life, i can done most of the things that other people can do.
currently i still maintain at that size which i think it's quiet suitable for the people at my height. since the size not a main problem to me, so what i had to think of currently was increse my speed of running. that is one of the main reason why i going to join u all, i need some guide, advice, running partners (friends), someone who can share their experience and time comparison to get a better speed and proper way to run. nice to be in this running family. hopefully can meet u all in the future. keep in touch. keep on running.
END OF STORY
Thanks and regards,
