It was a tough run this morning, Saturday 19 May 2012. Led by Jessen Lee, we were running quite fast in the many trails of Bukit Kiara (aka Kiara Hill). The group ran with gusto even at the start of the journey at Office Overtime Trails ... that sound like working hard for overtime ... :-) Needless to say, we were panting for breath later.
At Magic Carpet, we met Paul Lee and gang who were volunteering for the maintenance work at Magic Carpet Trail. After a brief conversion, the group continued the run.

We ran quite a big loop too. From Magic Carpet Trail, we ran via 2K Trail and arrived at the cross-road. At this juncture, Jeff Ooi and George have to excuse themselves. We then connected via Apollo Trail to Equestrian Centre. At the Water Tank, we took Plan A and ran along Jalan Bukit Kiara (Sri Hartamas area) and connected to Plan C Trail; returning via Rumpy Pumpy and Boulder Trails. At this moment, another few more members dropped out from the group. Then we proceed via Twin Peaks Trail and return by Snakes and Ladders. Total duration: 2 hr 45 min.

At Magic Carpet Trail ... met Pau Lee and friends who are volunteering for the maintenance of the trails. Bravo!!

 The high fencing

Salomon XR CrossMax - I was wearing my good-looking, brand new Salomon trail running shoes. It was a very comfortable trail running shoes; the stability and traction were good. However, I notice that the feet were sweating a lot inside compared to the New Balance trail running shoes.

 Our macho male model, Charles, demonstrates what it is like separated by the intimating high-fencing when the project is completed.

When returning to carpark at 10:15 a.m., we met Raymond Ng who is going to give moral support to the volunteers (eg. Paul Lee) who are maintening the trails by bring a box of packet drinks for refreshment. Bravo!!
