Kah Meng – Hi! I am Kah Meng, just an amateur runner who has a passion for running.
Kellyn – Hi everyone, I am Kellyn! I started competitive running in 2015 and have passion towards running too.
JustRunLah! : How did you meet each other?
Kah Meng & Kellyn – Carnival Run. I was there to support my friends. I spotted him somewhere near the finish line after the race and I just said ‘Hi!’ to him (*as a friend*). We didn’t talk much at the race site, but he started texting me that night. Soon thereafter, we started going out to lunch, dinner and to the movies.
JustRunLah! : When did you first pick up running (what age) and what inspired you to do so?
Kah Meng – Caught the running bug from my cousin in 2007 and haven’t look back ever since. Really enjoy the adrenaline I get from the sport.
Kellyn – I’ve always been active but only took up running about 2 years ago, when I was 24. Two years ago, my colleague persuaded me to sign up for my first ever half marathon, and from there, my passion for racing began ☺
