Today MY Weltanschauung participated (...and COMPLETED!) in my first 10k run in 16years. Purpose of MY Weltanschauung participating in the run was to collect funds for the "IRM-Ekspedisi Merdeka KL London Project for the setting-up of Libraries at 40 Orphanages in Malaysia".
Wearing the Nos C2223(in Green) I'd Initially just wanted to walk and finished the torture....but was carried away in the moment to run due to the atmosphere....i.e. Cameras, Photographers, Fire Engine Siren.....in short, paparazzi! TQ to supporters who turned up to cheer. I don't think I'd qualified within the time frame...but I was given a Certificate as well either due to MY being drenched with sweat or, the organisers had more leftover certificates for those in the Junior Veteran (Group C) category.
