Have you noticed that the number of “runs” held this year seem to have increased? I think it’s great! Some of the run are organised for charities and others are just as fun competitions. Among the one’s i’ve heard of are the Mens’s Health and Shape Night Run which i hosted with my buddy Fiqrie, the Adidas King of The Road, Standard Charter Marathon, The PJ Half Marathon and the list goes on.
Great stuff, cause you get to test your physical endurance, hang out with friends, get some motivation and maybe win a medal in the process.
