Live Great, Run Great. :)
That must be the buzzword for the day. Around 5,000 runners too part in the inaugural "Live Great Run 2012" that was flagged off at the Menara MATRADE, Kuala Lumpur.
The race route took runners past part of Jalan Duta and Jalan Kuching, Publika Solaris Dutamas, the spanking new Istana Negara and Hartamas Shopping Centre.
A unique feature was included into the 12km run - where runners have to jump over two rows of water barriers and go through a mini labyrinth formed by metal barricades. (Note: Sorry, we do not have pictures at this section as we we can't be at two places at the same time. Heheh!)
One of the highlights of the run was its first-of-its-kind 3km fun run with more than 300 pairs of runners.
Each pair saw two runners sharing an oversized double T-shirt and running in tandem.
The concerted effort in pairs not only aims to bring partners and family members closer together but embodies the essence that life's journey is sweeter when one goes through it with their loved ones. :)
Smile so that you don't look like a dead fish when you cross the finish line. :)
Director and CEO of Great Eastern, Dato Koh Yaw Hui and his wife, Datin Law Ping Ping completed the 3km run with huge smiles! :)
Two thumbs up for Dato and Datin!
We would like to see more CEOs of corporations participating in run or walk events. Get active and lead by example for a healthy lifestyle. Healthy employees, less medical leaves = good for the company, no? ;)
