Supporting a Cause

Sports has become one of the best venue to raise funds to support a specific cause. I myself have joined run races which supports beneficiaries of different causes. Feels good to be able to share while we are enjoying the sport that we love. This time, I am supporting a runner friend (Kassy) who will be running her 2nd full marathon in Singapore this December. Aside from completing her 2nd marathon, she has decided to choose Maple Tree Foundation as her beneficiary. Let us help support the deprived and underserved mountain communities live a healthy, productive, and peaceful lives. For more details visit her blog here.

Starting a New Race

Since last year I have been active in Running and Biking. I have been joining run races and have in my own way tried to motivate friends to engage in running and in fitness in general. Running has become a way of life for me. Thru running and biking I have developed a sense of self-discipline and made a big impact in my transformation both in my personal and professional life.

In every race there is always preparation and training to be able to perform better and achieve whatever goal you set. While I was active in preparing for my sport, I have been preparing also myself to a very important race of my life. A life marathon with the most important person in my life - KAY. In June 11, 2010, I have tied the knot with Kay to whom I have committed to spend the rest of my life with. Together we will run along side each other and make worthy the bond that we share together. It will be a long journey, there will be hills and valleys along the way but together we will be able to overcome it and make this a successful journey.
