Hello! We are Kelvin and Regina. Both of us rarely run in the past as we are busy with our work. We tried to hit the gym once in a while but running on a treadmill is static and boring so eventually, we stopped running.
After we moved into Vue 8 Residence, we are determined to have a better and healthier lifestyle. We were delighted when we saw the post by Stanley in the Vue 8 Residents’ Facebook for weekly Sunday runs at 7am. We immediately decided to join the group as it is opened to everyone including beginners like us and most importantly it met our objectives. Besides that, it is also the perfect platform for us to get to know our neighbours who share the same interest.
During the first few sessions, waking up at 7am was a challenge to us as we are not early risers especially during weekends. But every time after the running sessions, we felt refreshed and rejuvenated after a long week at work. That gave us the determination to wake up early and join the weekly sessions ever since. The different and interesting running routes that suit both slow and fast pace runners were very well planned and managed by Stanley.
Running regularly definitely helps us to build up stamina and stay fit. Most importantly, we enjoy our runs and we get to spend more time together. We are really thankful to join V8Runners as we are getting stronger not only physically but mentally as well.
Recently, we participated in the non-competitive run – Banana Relay with Christopher to form a team of 3. We ran as a team and completed the relay together. It was very fun and challenging running with the other runners in the running community.
We want to challenge ourselves in the future by participating in half marathon and full marathon events. We would like to make the impossible, possible! Lastly, we will continue to join the V8Runners’ weekly runs for better health and life.
