When I first saw the photo where Chantelle was standing next to a mat salleh (foreigner), I was very excited because I thought that she managed to take a group photo with Ron Hill, the legendary runner from Britain who was there to grace the occasion. Happily, I posted it in the weblog together with another photo showing medals and trophies.
When I received all the photos later, I saw one photo where a much older gentleman was holding a pen signing autograph on the chest of a runner – that must be Ron Hill. Then only I realized that the gentleman standing next to Chantelle was a different person.
Later, Chantelle told me that the gentleman standing next to her was actually her friend, Dan, who came to Ipoh to support the run. He is an expatriate working in Malaysia.
We hope that Dan would get used to our Malaysian’s way of life and hospitality. Dan is most welcome to join us in training runs at Bukit Aman.
