Re-discovering the joys of running…

Yes, my dear friends and readers, you are looking right at a man who is about to celebrate his 57th year this July…
Body weight in the morning, 62 kilos; in the evening after dinner: 64 kilos… body fat ranges from 8 to 10 percent…
And yes, that is the outfit that he is using to do his runs lately…

Well, we can say that, I sort of, re-discovered the joys of running… sometimes with shoes, other times, barefoot…
My ‘suweeto haato’ had decided to pick up running about a year and half ago…
In that one year, she has ran in several ‘little’ and half-marathons, culminating in her first full marathon last March at Tokushima, a prefecture adjacent to Kagawa…
I was impressed that she finished the full marathon at 4 hours 38 minutes…

And so, I was kind of like, ‘influenced’ by her running…
See that picture above?
I captured it after one of my fun runs last weekend when I did an 11 kilometer run right inside those woods, amongst the blooming wild sakura trees…
The feeling was, super refreshing, with a temperature hovering around 17 degrees…

Oh yes, that tank-top I was wearing…
I bought it as a gesture of support for a running project of a new friend I made (through my missus’ Barefoot Running Club)…
Known to his friends as simply, ‘K’, Atsuyuki Katsuyama is a runner, a vegan, and a resident of Bangkok…
He is planning to run on Route 66, across the USA, starting from Santa Monica, via Chicago, and all the way to New York…

He intends to complete the 5,200 kilometers run in 80 days, starting from 25th April, and ending on 13th July.
Readers may look up for more information here https://krunusa.wordpress.com
It will certainly be adventure of a lifetime, and quite a feat if he can successfully complete the run…

I wish him the very best of luck, and stamina to pull through…

  1. You’re looking good Mr. Lrong Lim…running is such a wonderful exercise…but at my advanced stage of non-exercise decay I’ve decided to go for swimming instead 🙂 I’m following your friend “K” now…I want to follow his progress as runs on Route 66!!

    • Dear Alice… rather unfortunately, not quite… she did respond to my request to shoot some pics for me, but then, I decided that I would be shooting the pics myself, on remote…

  2. Run Lrong Run…good to re-discover the joy of running again. Used to run in 10Ks decades ago maybe just like you making a come-back. Wow 65km per day on Route 66. All the very best to K, he is gonna be OK.

  3. Congratulations in gaining healthy lifestyles together with your wife. I realized something though on our physical differences. I wish i am as healthy as you, as our polluted air in Metro Manila is not doing me any good. My lack of physical regular exercise exerted stress on maybe tendons, because after a hectic continuous photoshooting with friends out of town, i had a bad feeling at the back of my right knee. And now i have a terrible cough triggered by allergy. OMG my body is older, haha. God bless…Andrea

    • Hi Andrea

      Good afternoon from Japan!

      Thank you for your kind words… My missus has been running almost everyday, while I try to do it at least three times a week…
      We thank our stars for the current state of health we have, and by the grace of god, we shall strive to keep it that way, while enjoying the process along the way…
      Hope you can think of a way to engage yourself in some kind of similar routine…

      with warmest regards
      Lrong
