Due to work and other chores that we have to complete in our daily lives, it is easy to make full use of the odd time-off to relax and be a couch potato. Add binge eating the various kinds of snacks available nowadays to the equation, you’ll have the perfect formula for obesity. Trust me, I’ve been there.
I smile each time I reminisce about my running journey. I still have vivid memories of the 1st CMS Health Run at Tunku Putra School back in 2012. I was in pain and had literally collapsed the minute I reached home! There and then, I decided to make health a priority (err, clearly I was in poor shape) and to do that I needed to make time for exercise.
So how did you spend your weekend?
Me? I spent it ‘running for a good cause’.
Kuchingites and out-stationed runners in Betong, Sibu, Bintulu and Miri dusted off their running shoes and adorned fashionable tribal outfits to pace and dash the streets for the CMS Tribal Run 3.0, which took place on Sunday, 27 August 2017. Boasting an impressive 3,100 participants (2,639 in Kuching; 461 in Betong, Sibu, Bintulu and Miri), the sporting event ran with the tagline ‘Run for a Good Cause’, and theme ‘Go Tribal’ was organised by CMS.

With the success of our very first CMS Tribal Run in 2015, I was even more excited to participate in the 2nd (CMS Tribal Run 2.0). I trained for my run (or short sprints followed by hops, skips and walks) months before last Sunday’s big run.
