JP Morgan Chase Run


Originally uploaded by nicodemus_chan.

Participated in the JP Morgan Chase Run yesterday.

5.6km run completed in about 37-38mins.

It was a difficult race to run as there are people all over the course and you have to push your way through. It tooks us like 6 minutes to walk to the start line. Even until the finish line there are people walking the course.

The padang was also really muddy due to rain in the afternoon. I'll have to spend Saturday washing my Adidas shoes.

The interesting about this? Your timing is based on an honour system. No ChampionChip RFID tags to tie to your shoes. You note down your timing and your team captain submits the scores.

Sheesh... if that's the case I could just claim we all did it in 15 minutes and a trip to New York is on the cards...

Early Morning Match

Early Morning Match

Watched the AC Milan-Manchester United match at the coffee shop near my apartment.

It was the most pathetic display of football from Man. U. that I've ever seen.

No all-English final.

But it will be interesting to have another AC-Liverpool final. Will we see Liverpool triumph again? Or will AC exact its revenge?

Walk Tall

"There are three things that are stately in their stride,
four that move with stately bearing:

a lion, mighty among beasts,
who retreats before nothing;

a strutting rooster, a he-goat,
and a king with his army around him.

(Proverbs 30:29-31)

Walk tall in life. Do not fear man. I think that this verse tells us not to walk like a loser but as a winner in life.

Look straight ahead, don't look down. Walk like a confident child of God!
