Trail Walker 2013

Trail Walker starts at 0900 15 Nov, Friday, a torture to your joints, knees, toes, and spirit until you can not move on... well. every year people try to demonstrate that he can, but I find that such 100Km in fact is not healthy to your body. After the 100Km continuous walk, you have to take more potient and likely sleep well for the next 60 days to recover, or your liver will not be good at all.

This is the picture our team mates took for me.... this is beautiful pictures, aren't them!?

Go Beyond

This is a amazing picture that we could see in HKIA, everytime I pass by, Everytime I think of what I have done in the past ten years walking up the hills,  and the higher we walk, the smaller I think I would be...
When people get aged, all these hiking memories will be some kind of bed time stories to our kids, if they are willing to listen to.. or will be just the lost memorries of our own loneliness.

Foo Yung Shan training

This is supposed to be doomsday, end of the world, but seems assofar, there is nothing happens, I decided to walk up the Foo Yung Shan with three colleagues. Since I had not been trained three weeks, my muscle was so tight and stiff, I finally hurt my legs, I was almost unable to walk down the hill without assistance!
What a shame, as one that is claim to be fast running down hill, this story tells me.... if you do not practice, ou will be nothing!

Adidas 1

The Adidas 1 was a running shoe made by Adidas, introduced in early 2005. It is the first general consumer sneaker to incorporate a computer. The shoe suffered reliability issues with many being sent back for repair, which initiated the introduction of an improved generation shortly after the release of the original shoes, which was called Intelligence Level 1.1. Problems remained, sales dropped rapidly, and the shoe was discontinued in mid 2006. This was my pair I bought in in 2005 with RMB2,600 which meant that I bought it in China, as there was no stock in HK. I have been using it for Hiking and I found the design is OK, and quite comfortable to wear with a good grip on down hill, but I always worry about rains as it seems the battery compartment is not water tight.. My one is still functions normally. HK Snob

Death Casualty of Standard Chartered Marathon 2012

Again there is one young man ended up his life dead after Half Marathon event was completed. Plus other one man and one young lady were in serious condition and were hospitalized. The casualty is a Clerk in a Construction Company. The 25 man Mok who was in fact found to use his friend Wong’s information to run as Mr. Wong was busy working in Shenzhen and had no time to participate. Insurance Company will not pay anything to this Mr. Wong as he is not because of the third party’ ignorance causing this accident. He hurts because of his personal reason like lacking of preparation or rehearsal before the event. This isn’t the first time, I remember that there were two cases of death in 2007 whereby may be one of the reason of bad weather was the causes, all cases are those people who found to be death after they completed their target,
That is a purely the Mindset has a strong will to over control the physical body which is not strong enough to maintain to be functional.
Most of the cases were they are not having enough training and warm up before the event.
A Marathon will consume a lot of energy and most of the case their Cardiac condition has to be able to sustain the event.
I have an acute stoppage of my heart when I had a very extreme Push for my body going up hill at high speed, luckily I did not push further or I will not be here to talk about Marathon, young man sometimes may over estimate their physical condition...
Hope that this is the last time to have this unluckily event and hope that all participants did not underestimate the physcal condition of the body.
Think carefully and consult your family doctor when you participant Standard Chartered Marathon 2013.

Hope that this is the last case and everyone can enjoy Marathon in 2013.

Tiang Tang Lung

Tiang Tang Lung means Hang Lattern, where the shape of the hill is looking like a Big Hanging Lattern, not easy to climb up. But you could experience the Magnificient view on top of it.
