The Malaysia Women Marathon 2014 : Dream, Believe and Become.

Another 28 days will be the Malaysia Women Marathon 2014.
The theme for MWM 2014 is  
 Dream, Believe and Become.   
I still remember the day I joined this 1st women marathon in Malaysia was last year, 7th April 2013. I was still a newbie in running. I joined the 8km run and I was lucky to be the top 30 and brought back the limited finisher pendant.
For this year, the MWM is back on 16th March 2014 in Shah Alam!
MWM, the  1st women marathon  from South Asia to New Zealand.  It is the event  where women come together to encourage one another to go the distance and know they can run the marathon because simply, they can.   
I'll be running my very 1st full marathon in MWM 2014
The MWM is the marathon where you can meet a woman running legend and be inspired. It's the run where women know they can because there is no stopping them.  It’s where you want to be to finish the run with your “sole sisters”.  
Proudly presented by Tourism Selangor and with IGM Sdn Bhd, MWM 2014 is not just any other run,  it has a 3 day program.  This event will be held in Shah Alam, Selangor Darul Ehsan  with the support from Majlis Bandaraya Shah Alam and endorsed by various Selangor State excos such as the Exco of Tourism,  Exco of Youth and Sports, Exco of Women Affairs and Welfare; and lastly the Exco of Health and Entrepreneurship.
It will start of with a women dialogue session for the first day,  workshops for the second from various group and even our sponsors . The run is the penultimate of the event. The concept of the Malaysia Women Marathon is to invite a running legend to grace the event, be keynote speaker and inspire with their life achievement stories.   Thus MWM  focuses on delivering motivation and guidance for development  whether physically or psychologically.  MWM is meant  to create the opportunity for women to grow their confidence and self- esteem via sport or more active lifestyle from running. 
For MWM 2014,  the focus on the women dialogue session is not merely on running. MWM has invited top notch women corporate profiles and activist on women movement to be panel speaker.
MWM 2014 workshops will be conducted by Catherine Nderaba, 4 times Boston marathon champion and 2 times world champion.  She hails from Kenya. Her journey into being a world champion came with a powerful story of her being a mother first and how she had balance all that is needed in life and surpass the obstacles emerging as a champion, not once but multiple time.  Couple on the Run will return to speak about Partnerunning and we will have several top notch runners from Australia representing Skir Sports.
MWM created history last year to give Malaysia its first women marathon.  This year MWM encourages the ladies to run better as this is the marathon for all women do better than you can truly be.  For if one does not start somewhere,  they will never arrive.

Here are some photos I took during the MWM 2014 1st Running Clinic with Katherine Switzer and the press conference.
Kathrine Switzer, the first woman who run the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry was with us in the MWM 2014 Running Clinic.

Dream your goals,   
Believe in that you can and
when you believe, you Become.

See you on 16th March 2014!

My Healthy Life with Samsung Galaxy Life

During my CNY gathering, one of my cousins was browsing an interesting app with a lot of cool deals and discount. Out of curiosity, I asked her what new phone app she was using. Guess, what? It’s the Samsung’s latest mobile app, Samsung Galaxy Life!
Being a Samsung user for almost two years, this latest Samsung Galaxy Life mobile app definitely is a great reward app from Samsung to their loyal users like me! ^-^
I just can’t wait to explore this exclusive and privilege mobile app by Samsung. I download the FREE mobile app from Google Play Store, 
I don't have to create a new account as I’m an existing Samsung user. Once I login with my password, I can start to search for all the great deals.
The Samsung Galaxy Life surprises me with their daily deals with discount coupons, selection and reviews of apps and rewards.
 Basically it has 7 categories:
Life, Entertain, Learn, Play, Connect, Work and Surprise.  

I already use the RunKeeper app in LIVE category to track all my running workouts and race.  
When I was browsing through the daily deals, I saw the Rapid Fusion Fitness promotion. Apart from running, I need to have other fitness activities to have a healthy life. 
Alright, I just need bootcamp training for more fitness and the Rapid Fusion Fitness is an outdoor fit-bootcamp.
I click “Redeem” the Rapid Fusion Fitness promotion voucher. 
Once I have “redeem” the promo voucher, I make a phone call to them and I’m ready for their 1st fitness class.
My 1st Rapid Fusion Fitness class was at Desa Park City Soccer Field. It was an hour class and this class really make me sweat a lot! Sweat more, burn more fats and become healthy! 
When I arrived, all I need to do was showed them my promotion voucher and they just sign me up for the class!
  The biggest surprise was, a RM100 off the usual price when I redeem this voucher through Samsung Galaxy Life! 
The trainers are very friendly and helpful. “My last fitness training was like few years ago. I’m a newbie to this class, “I told the trainer.
We started with a short warm up session and then we were divided into three small groups for fitness activities.
There were three activities for today’s class and each activity lasted for 30 seconds and we were rotate to another activity. 

This go on and on for the next 45 minutes.
 One of the training the TRX training.
This TRX training may look easy but I can tell it is a challenging training.

Basically the TRX is a unique training where I use my own body weight and gravity as resistance for movements.

This is a great cardiovascular workout.
 Just to share with you more photos of me during this fitness class.


Thanks to all the friendly trainers and I did enjoy this fitness class. I just can’t wait for next fitness class! So, who want to join me to this class? 

All you have to do is download the Samsung Galaxy Life from Google Play Store, search for the daily great deals and others exciting rewards. Click “redeem” and join me to a great life!

Samsung Galaxy Life is your passport to a healthy life!
