Foxy Babe Fox-trotting at Terry Fox Run



Yeay! The participation is more this year then before, well… at least base on T-shirt sales (means more dollars for the cancer research! Yippee!). As for the attendees, I have to read tomorrow’s paper to find out I guess.

This time around they held it at Titiwangsa Lake which is approximately 7mins from my house. I even strategised where to park (I foresee it will be HELL!) so that other cars won’t block mine (kiasu!), hahhahhaa…. But we decided to do 2 rounds of the lake instead and hoping that once we completed, some of the cars have moved by then. YEAY! It worked! We felt smart on an early Sunday morning (Yup! Brain still functioning despite that at 7ish Andrea got lost on her way to LRT train station and I forgot to take my credit card from the teller machine [Reported card stolen 4 hours later] ! Other then that, yeah…our brain works absolutely FINE!).

This is the 2nd participation for me (totally forgotten about it last year). And this time around my ex-Girl Guide & Scount (1 scout ONLY) joint in as well, bump into friends and colleagues, saw some err….clown hair Terry FoxER etc, bottom line - I had a splendid time and run (felt healthier too physically and mentally). By the way; Wenny, where are you?

Only one last scout standing; who still have the heart for charitable work, aww......

The volunteers still selling shirts on the event day itself.

Mobile toilet - just in case you were wondering, they ensure that it is according to the theme colour (just kidding! coincidentally it's the same colour as the shirt! HAHHAH...).

Oh yah! You know what I like best, seeing kids/toddler with their little Terry Fox shirt and cute tiny butt running trying to catch up with the mommy and daddy - awww…. SUPER CUTE!!!

Little Lily, real cutie. Same "bird day" as Autie Lily.

Swing me up.

Wiggle waggle...

This makes me think, should I run (walk) the one in Singapore too? Hemmm…


Have you ever join any Terry Fox Run in your country?

Looks to me like a really great run! Yes, you should join the next run only because it is fun. Enjoy your day, Kellie xx

Wenny Yap said...

Lily, you must've been extremely excited to go for the run that you forgotten your credit card ... no unwarranted charges I hope.

I was there but the sea of blue was really 'kao-kao' ... everybody seemed to look alike ... I even had difficulty looking for our gang! I thought I'd just snap randomly hoping to capture all my friends in action. Regretfully, Lily you were playing hide-n-seek with me ... hahaha!!!

Lily, this looks fun and tiring. Was it?

eugene said...

You know Ni, i've always had this idea that cancer research will always be a wishful thinking, in my opinion there is huge money to be made in curing cancer than preventing cancer..so the consipiracy is that, let cancer previal and money rows in......

Lily Riani said...

eugene,

it bound to go to somewhere or somebody's pocket but i figure at least "some" of it will be for a good cause. i thought preventing cancer is our self-discipline.

I have just come back from KL. I struggles between GPS and signboards, this took me 45 mins to leave KL town and reached Sungai Buloh Highway.

If you are interested, you can join Penang Bridge run. Closing date is 12-Nov, but I won't be joining this year.

Nice to see you.

I think it's a bit too hot to run or even walk for a long period of time in Malaysia, don't you think so? Or maybe you're used to it?
