Member since the inception of the club:
1995 (Myself, Malcolm and Jack)
Raced faithfully until 2014 (I haven’t run an official race ever since due to knee injury)
A few words about myself:
Nicknamed “Shepperd” by Malcolm Murphy, during the Friday morning run, when the runners stopped at the gas station for drinks, I always run back to the end of the line and ensure no one is lost on the way and gave the comfort that they will be stopping for a drink and short break soon. When they used to see me running back, they new that they will be stopping soon!
There is something magical about running; after a certain distance, it transcends the body. Then a bit further, it transcends the mind. A bit further yet, and what you have before you, laid bare, is the soul.”
Every time I run it's with the mindset that if I die at this race, it's OK."
I run because if I didn’t, I’d be sluggish and glum and spend too much time on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary. I run…to savor the trip along the way. Life becomes a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that.”
Never underestimate the power that one good workout can have on your mind. Keeping the dream alive is half the battle.”
The world is actually full of challenges and we need to challenge ourselves. I took a challenge to run that fast. It consumes a lot of energy especially mentally. But I took myself and accepted to be challenged and I challenged the time.”
