From Sau Wan - city surfing
What happened to Kwok Tai is a reminder to all of us that we should take special effort to look after our physical beings. We just completed the 38 th Sun Herald City To Surf on Sunday. We incorporated a bit of training with our regular morning walk in the few months prior to the event as soon as the weather turned milder. I even managed to convince a colleague to join the event this year. Interesting that another colleague who last year said that he would beat my record (when he saw how well I looked when I turned up for work next day) didn't join! My brother happened to be in Australia that week. He took part in the event with us as well. We all completed the 14km course well within our target. We are all very happy with our results. Woo Kam Sang is already talking about joining again next year! In fact he is very serious into doing exercises since his semi-retirement. (He is now enjoying 3 days off per week, two of the days are Saturdays and Sundays!). He said that since he takes up regular jogging and swimming, his blood pressure, cholesterol levels and waistline improve. Last year when we were in HK, he took us to the Promenade near Science and Technology Centre near Chinese University for a jog. It's a 10km return track, from Chinese University to Tai Po. Lovely track, wide, flat and no traffic. Highly recommended. We had a rare day of blue sky, so we took a picture for the occasion. See how cool he looked. He mentioned that he had written or thought of writing an article promoting running in some beautiful areas of HK. You might like to ask him when you see him. Or, you may consider joining the event next year. You don't have to run. You can run seriously, run as you like, walk all the way, skip, push a stroller, a pram, a wheelchair, or even ride on a wheelchair! One year, some people walked and ran the course carrying a stretcher (I think they were a fund-raising for a small community hospital).
