Running to a New Challenge at Coway Run, 7th May 2017

Hello readers ..

I am back with another running entry. As you know, me and my team will run once a month. This is our monthly activity and we have been practicing it since a few months ago. What I noticed is running now has become a popular way of exercise and has become a national phenomenon. 

As someone who practised healthy lifestyle, I love to see people putting efforts on taking care of their health and taking care of health must be done in various way ~ through a healthy diet which includes your food and liquid intake, exercise and think positive.

I recently had the opportunity to attend Coway Run's Press conference at Novotel Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. In case if you do not know Coway, Coway is Malaysia's leading water specialist which produced classy, high-tech & air purifiers designed by world-class researchers. Coway is not new to me as most of my family members owned our own unit of Coway water purifier at home.

The first Coway Run 2017 by Coway (M) Sdn Bhd will making its debut for the first time on 7 May 2017 at the Starling Mall, Damansara Uptown where everyone will be running together to achieve a healthy lifestyle and at the same time, inspire others to follow their lead to run and face their fears.

Mr. Kyle Choi Ki Ryong, Managing Director of Coway highlighted that Coway Run aims to be a medium for Malaysians to step out from their comfort zones and be courages to take that first step to a better, healthier life. Coway Run is not a competition which focusing on who made their way first to the finishing line but it is about summoning that courage to face your fears with willingness to make a difference, an improvement in your life that will build you to be stronger and confident in trackling new diversities.

Two categories are available for participation. Beginners or new comers can take part in the 5KM category or if you are an existing runners, challenge yourself in a longer route which is the 10KM category. 

Participants will be running around the Starling Mall area with 4 categories of men and female veteran, mean and women open (for ages 18 and above). 

While focusing on your running, be alert as you can expect to spot famous Malaysian fitness model Jordan Yeoh and former Miss Universe Malaysia Carey Ng running alongside other runners to cheer and motivate us at every step of the way.

Aimed at breaking the stereotype that portrays long distance running as exercise only meant for professional athletes or 'fit people' Coway Run wants to instil the mind-set that every step taken is a beginning to a better life. Jordan Yeoh and Carey Ng are living proofs that show how even a beauty queen and fitness model can also overcome the challenge of a 5KM or 10KM run respectively.

As an active runner, I understand how important it is to stay hydrated throughout the run. Do not worry as Coway will be placing three (3) giant water purifiers at three (3) water stations to ensure that participants will get to replace their fluid lost with the best choice of water, the better water from The Water Specialist. 

Mr. Kyle in his speech said that By Organising Coway Run for the first time, this will help Coway to establish a relationship with community in venturing a lifelong journey together, involving the community in doing something that gives them passion, and giving them the opportunity that achievement. This Run could be a new beginning for participants where they can meet people whom share the same interest, bond with them and motivate each other in their steps to a healthier life. Nothing beats finding people to share the feeling of satisfaction when the finishing line is reached!

Either you are an existing runner *like me*, beginner or if you have not participating in any running before, Coway Run could be the best platform for you to start. Coway, as the ultimate water specialist is devoted to promoting a wellness lifestyle for all and will be providing running tips and guide for participants. Do not miss the Running Clinic which will be also held to prep Coway's runners for a pre-run preparation. Well, I attended a few Running Clinic when I was a beginner  ~ It is good .. a lot of exercise and running tips you can learn from the clinic. Official sponsors of the Coway Run include The Starling Mall and 100 Plus.

So readers, lets do this together ~ Lace up those running shoes and make our way to the Coway Run this 7th May 2017 at Starling Mall, Damasara Uptown.
