And I want to share that with you guys ! That’s the main purpose of this blog… if you are like me and like running or hiking, this is the place for you if you want to know the nice places to go running/hiking if you are in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I’m an average Joe like many of you and picked up running as a more frequent hobby mid 2013. I’ve never been very good at sport during my childhood. I was decent enough at biking up to 100+ kilometres on a road bike but stopped at age 18. I never really liked running and struggled when at 18 I was forced (yes forced !) to go run twice a week being in a military school for one year. I have to say it kicked my ass and I kept running regularly for years.. until I moved to Asia. Hot weather, married life and kids put a stop to my running until mid 2013.
At that time, I had to restart from scratch… barely able to do 3km without having pain. But with consistency, regular efforts and a good support group, I managed to run a marathon ! Now I’m focussing at running longer races – ultra marathons – on the road and now on the trails…
