Adidas King of the Road, 1 July

The first time I met some of the members of the Happy Feet Runners after the race (except for Ben, wearing a yellow shirt, whom I’ve met during the Nike+ Fun Run last April 2007). KOTR run was an unforgettable experience. With just a few minutes left before the start of the race, I realized I forgot to bring my bib. I psyched myself, “relax… don’t panick…” It dawned on me that every second counts! I had no choice but to go back to my place and get the bib and risk missing the start of the race. Fortunately, I made it in the nick of time! Thanks to Tisha and Madelle for these nice photos. As you can see, we were all smiles. Who wouldn’t? This was the unofficial gathering of Happy Feet Runners a. k. a. Impromptu Runners, a group that is so diversed yet with a common passion–R… U…. N ….. N …… I …..N .. G ! I have finished my run in one hour and four minutes, beating my record in 2005 by fourteen minutes. Not bad, eh? This is my comeback after over a year of not running. Glad to be a HAPPY FEET! Whooah!
