It's been a couple of weeks since I last run in Energizer Night Race, not in a running mode at all; but the Hilly routes was interesting as this is my first time running Merdeka Square and I love Hills.  07:30am Flagged-off from Merdeka Square, continue running towards Bank Negara, then up to Bukit Tunku, later proceeded up to Jalan Duta (Ministry of Education), ran along the freeway @ Jalan Duta down to the ramp up to Parliament Road then the final sprint all the way towards Merdeka Square.  It was a blast with all the hilly routes, I was enjoying it all the way.  I'll rather run a full hilly route, rather than then flat ground; at least it pushes my vertical ascending limits.  Clocked-out my 10km run @ 00:56mins for Category A - Men.

Not much of a runner myself but I join marathon occasionally for stress reliefs & to endure myself.  Besides maintaining a healthy diet, I improves my physical fitness mainly by training my Core, Stamina & Endurance in Chief's Original BootCamp (COBC) Physical Training.  I somehow prefer COBC Intensified Physical Training than running, and I am still training in it. 

It's been almost 12months now since I joined Chief's Original BootCamp and I'm still Loving It!
My most sincere gratitude to Sarge Dann (aka Daing Daniel Fitri) who is my friend & my COBC trainer; as well as the COBC family of crazy trainers, admins, buddies that shines Great Spirit, Attitudes & Passions.  HOOYAH to you guys!
