More than 10,000 runners challenged themselves to the ultimate night run at the BSN Putrajaya Night Run (BSNPNM 2012) this evening, held against the beautiful and majestic landscape of Putrajaya.
Initially, the sky that looked like it would pour any second but ultimately it turned out to be a hot and humid affair for the runners!
Happy Birthday to this lady! What a birthday present for a herself - to complete a marathon!
While others ran happy, there were a few runners who mourned the death of a fellow runner, Cheah Meei Meei whose sudden passing shocked the running community. Her death was attributed to food poisoning she got at the Perhentian Island Challenge. RIP Cheah Meei Meei. :(
