29th Km, 29th year and 29 things


I am celebrating my 29th birthday today.

I have been feeling my – pre-depression, seasonal blues since last week because of it. Growing a year older! Well one cure to my depression is running. It is the cause of my addiction. never thought how much kilometers i will be running this week as last week has been really a bum week for me not have ran for more than 25Kms. And just yesterday i thought, that since today i am turning 29, i should be running my 29th KM for the week.

Tuesday: 7Km, bay run
Wednesday: 14 Km, Bayrun(7×2) – it was difficult to run in the dark! without light, specially near the mental hospital! errie!
Thursday (21.08.08)-7Km Bay run + 1 km King George Oval

1. Thanks I have strong legs and strong passion to keep myself running

i never had anything planned to do on my bday, although i wanted to go out somewhere unfortunately, i can’t. I am left to do a night work 😦 meaning i cant go out late.

2. look at the brighter side of it, thank you i have a good job, and I dont need to go to work on Friday

Today I got two bday cards. One from my Family, which affected me really well. I was sobbing to see and realize i do miss them as much as they miss me.

3. Thank you for a good and supportive family, dad, mom, Ting, Celes and Lola
