This is just a quick post to announce the 5 winners of the Malaysia Military Tag giveaway. And they are…..
Ken Lam, Princess Swan, Cikgu Bernard are the winners for the Single Standard Military Tag while Nick Arthur and Kok Soon will be sporting the Single Logo Identification Tags! Malaysia Military Tag will be in touch with you very soon on how to claim your prizes.
A big thank you, of course, to Malaysia Military Tag for sponsoring this giveaway. These guys have customizable products and premiums for corporations and individuals, so do check them out at the link provided.
Until recently, little did I know that we have a Malaysian company which is in the business of supplying such tags. Calling itself Malaysia Military Tag (MMT), the company specializes in making customized identification tags. Other than the macho military style tags, there are also ultra durable paracord bracelets, emergency bracelets, keychains and personalized windscreen stickers. Because these folks are local, the prices are all lower making it very accessible to everyone.
Ordering is as simple as heading on to their website, select your material, size and color preferences, enter the texts you want embossed (MMT say this makes it more durable than engraving) and upload your personalized image.
MMT is not a new company. In fact, they’ve supplied large quantities to corporations and individuals, and from the reviews, providing good and responsive service shouldn’t be an issue.

I run best when I’m not beset by the knowledge that I’ve to be home by such and such a time and when I ditch the cell phone. My best runs need not necessarily be long nor fast. It’s a state of mind when I let go of all attachments. In that state, my mind can either be thinking about nothing (trust me, that can happen!) or reflecting. I could be thinking of ideas to shoot or write for a blog post, basically constructive and creative things. This state of equanimity doesn’t happen often though but I do try to seek it.
Running with burden, prejudice and pressure completely negate this very thing that we do and love. Heading out for a run then becomes an activity in futility, unless you’re one who thrives on pressure. Many runners I know count seconds and metres in their daily runs. Maybe they have a compelling reason to do so. Maybe 0.5 metres add up to 1 metre after 2 runs, which in turn tally up to their very important weekly mileage target. Maybe that’s not stressful for them. To each his own, if that works for them. But for me, that’s not important anymore. That doesn’t mean I’m no longer competitive. I’ll still go into target races with a racing mindset. I still value the importance and cardinal truths of mileage and training specificity. But I won’t beat myself up over, say, seconds and metres anymore.
Here’s to running free!
Note: This is a re-post from an old entry from July 2010 but the content is still very much relevant to me today.

About MPIB Run
Back for the 4th year, the MPIB Run 2015 kicks start the Malaysian running calendar on the 1st Sunday of the year and for 2015, it is scheduled to take place on 4 January 2015. This community run will host 5,000 participants at the Padang Merbuk, Jalan Parlimen.
MPIB is proud to position itself as the pioneer general insurer in organising a community based public run in Malaysia in 2012. The inaugural event successfully gathered 3,750 runners and for the 2nd and 3rd year in 2013 and 2014 respectively, 5,000 runners participated; an increase of 33% from 2012 inaugural run. MPIB hopes this is reflective of a growing community adopting a healthy lifestyle and, hence, the event is themed “Healthy Lifestyle – Work Life Balance”, aiming to suit to the community from all walks of life.
During the weeks leading up to the Run on 4 January 2015, MPIB have scheduled 8 “My First Run Clinics” for new and interested runners taking baby steps to the world of running. The clinic also includes health and fitness related talks to furnish runners with fitness knowledge and to prepare them for the Run on Sunday, 4 January 2015.
The race keeps my motivation going. Running resets my being. It’s like an ageing hard disk needing a refrag. Any time spent out there, purges the negativity and worries gnawing away throughout the week. Nevermind the same worries will return when the weekdays resume, but at least for the few hours, the weekend, I’ll be free. I don’t expect non-runners to understand this. For every runner out there doing the same thing, there are way more who seek to party, drink or sleep-in as their form of release.
Well, to each his own.
So this Saturday, I’ll be heading out of the house again at 4am. I’ll hook up with my friends. We will run the same hilly course as last weekend’s race yet it will not be as difficult this time around because the pace will be easy. The company will be good and we will finish the run strong. It will be therapeutic.
With a 52K and year-end marathon coming up, I was desperately seeking long races as training. No problems in that department because since PNM, there’s been a quick succession of weekend halves with CAPAM, K2 (24K, training) and now the Inov-8 Pacesetters 3030. The weekend runs have grown progressively longer over the last month and a half. If what one does on weekends are the sole determinant of marathon performance, then I’d say I’m in good shape. But that’s not how things work. Weekdays are essential in getting the body conditioned to take on the longer distances, the very department I’m most deficient in right now.
So I found myself at the roadside sleeping in the car this morning, waiting for the hours to tick down to 5am. I was already there since 4am, just so that I get a parking slot. The area isn’t known for ample parking facilities.
I thought I’d get in a longer shut-eye but Nick and CY arrived too soon! I gobbled half a Clif Bar and we started walking to the race staging area. The crowd were just starting to stream in.
Soon enough the Gold Coast gang was assembled and after a quick warm up we started moving to the start line. Nick, CY and I were positioned somewhere in the 2nd half of the crowd. It was to be a training run anyway. Even if it wasn’t, going out hard on this route is one sure way of destroying your race. The first 10K (1:04) was quite enjoyable, with my HR at a comfortable and even keel. Halfway mark was reached in 1:32.
Drink stations were adequately manned and I didn’t see any that didn’t have the cups at the ready. Thumbs up to the water station managers and crew! I didn’t consume any bananas there as I didn’t want the fibre to irritate my bowels. It was also my plan to try to rely on body fats to get me through.
If the first loop around Publika was great, then the second loop was a complete opposite. The legs were starting to feel the effects of the undulating course and a chafe was building up at a most annoying spot. The leaders were already 5-7K ahead by the time I got to the 21K mark and the toughest point had yet to come.
The final 10 was no fun at all. I had to keep reminding myself that this was just a training run. That seemed to make the trudge up Double Hill slightly less painful. The ending couldn’t come sooner enough and in the end, a 3:09 on a course that had 463m total elevation gain was neither a good nor bad timing. Now if I can get those weekday consistency back…
Congrats to Julia who scored a top placing in the women’s open and Pacesetters for bringing this distance/event back.
