Well, as you all know I've been slacking a bit in training. Was trying to pick things up a little before PNM (oh gosh why oh why did I signed up 21km!) but there is always something up when I wanna go for a run. I need to prioritize my stuff. So when note came that Great Eastern is organizing a Live Great Running Clinic, I just signed up for it cause I really need a motivation push.
The event took place at Taylor's University Sunway campus and it was limited to only 200 participants (first come first serve basis). Invitations were sent to all who signed up for the upcoming Great Eastern Live Great Run 2012.

The warm up was a little too long for my liking which took about 30 minutes and there were loads of talking. I mean LOADS! I'm beginning to feel that this running clinic is really targeted at beginners rather than season runners and I was right. I could hear from the back some of the season ones were complaining.

|End of rote, 500M only. :P|

But still I stayed on as I was more keen towards the last program which was a talk by 2 podiatrist; namely Stella Chai and Johan Steenkamp. We were provided some snacks and ushered into one of the larger lecture halls for the talk.
