|The usual suspects. The DR gang.|
On Sunday, the DR gang gathered together and did FRIM (our usual trail spot). Yvonne is prepping her training for the upcoming TMBT while the rest of us just wanted to catch up with our training. It has really been some time since we last trained together. Mainly it was me, Vons, Capt Khoo, Paul, OKT, Melvin and Yloon. We've been discussing for days which route we be taking and since Von has been regularly training at FRIM, we asked her to lead the way.
|Pretty gloomy at Dream Trail but manageable by our standards.|
We took our run pretty easy, stopping several times for "poser shots". Generally, I quite like it this way; where I'm not rushing for time and just to absorb the fresh air and atmosphere.

|Capt Khoo still experimenting with his new camera since Boston.|
Capt was playing with his new camera; purposely bought for his Boston Marathon this year. He is still fumbling about the functions. Had to re-teach him the marvelous Slow Motion Video. He managed to capture a few beautiful slow-mo video of us running. I say, I've never really seen my stride frame by frame. Need to get one of these cameras one day.
We exited off Dream Trail in less than an hour and Capt, Yloon and OKT needed to go off. The rest of us continued on heading towards Salem Country Heights. While at it, me and Vons were trying to scare Paul about the "infamous" Steroid Hill.

|Paul, running straight for the hills. Salem Hills that is.|
|Do you know that FRIM is a Forest Reserve? Didn't find Tongkat Ali though.|
|Plenty of routes to venture into.|
|MTB bikers challenging the route.|
|They are fast; real fast!|
|Ooi Wei Min training for TMBT. Look at all the bikers!|
Below is the video recorded of our entire journey. Sorry for the shakiness; as it may cause dizziness while watching. It was one HELL of a great fun to see my POV while running trails.
After about 2 hours, we've reached back to our start points. It was pretty slow by our standards, just covering only about 12km. But it was a good slow and easy training. Most important of all, it was the fellowship of the DR-nians as we happily "blow water" along our training. Till the next round!
