Terry Fox Run 2011


This morning was the Terry Fox Run, an annual event that we would participate in, primarily because my office is a major sponsor, and staff are highly encouraged to join, in support of Cancer Research. With my mom who was diagnosed with Lymphoma about a year ago and losing a grandfather and cousin to the Big C, this event now is even more meaningful to our family. Kids enjoy the once a year 3-4 km walk/jog/run/stroller ride. It's all good family fun. This year it was held at Padang Merbok, KL which is around the Lake Gardens - National Monument Area. 


We were there bright and early, somehow it was much easier to wake the kids up compared to the usual Sunday morning routine to attend swimming lessons that starts at about the same time. When we reached our Talisman tent, we got the usual goodies to fuel our run.


Bananas.


3 types of muffins - Chocolate, Vanilla & Strawberry.


It was blazing hot this morning even at 8:30 a.m.


Group picture before starting.


In the shade with Su, Azleen, G-Ha and kiddies.


Somehow either we were early or the organiser was late, 
we had to wait quite awhile before actually running.


Things they do when bored!
 
 
I prefer taking loads of pictures... ha!ha!ha!


The turn out was good. 



Somebody from the Canadian Embassy too.



The warm up session.



I've got the moves like Jagger... uhuh! sure! :-D


And off we went...






It was quite hard work pushing Zaim all the way... burn more calories that way... 
yeah sure, burning the muffins that I had before the run walk and stroller pushing.





Look Nayli, it's the National Monument, stop for a picture girl!





Hot hot sun all the way! Way better than rain eh?


Towards the last 100m (or less) of the route, Zaim got off to actually run.


Woohoo, go Sonic! 
(Yes, he is either Sonic the Hedgehog, Ultraman, Iron man, Batman... 
which ever suits the occasion).



Phew, that was quite a run... ;-).



Catching our breath.


JT picking up a name for the Lucky Draw.


That's Ron A, our big guy who just joined us in October.Incidentally, it's his birthday today too, apparently I missed the birthday wish and cake cutting earlier. Happy Birthday Ron - we're both Scorpios! High 5!


On the way back to the car. My bookworm, actually brought his current read!


We had our brunch before we left.


Until next year!!!
