80% of Malaysians are not “designed” for running

Do you agree?
KUALA LUMPUR: If you are thinking of putting on those running shoes for a jog around the park this afternoon, think again.
Eighty per cent of Malaysians are not “designed” for running due to a variety of conditions such as bone structure, said Mal­aysian Physiotherapy Association (MPA) president Dr Balwant Singh Bains.
Thus, many students get injured when they take part in school sports which usually involve running and cross-country activities, he said.
“Children are not conditioned to run. It is important to screen them for any physical conditions that might cause injuries,” he said after Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin launched a national campaign by the MPA called “Invest Time on Your Health – 30 mins a day” here yesterday.
While most injuries are not disabling, Dr Balwant said they can cause strain and children’s complaints of pain usually fall on deaf ears.
He said that he was not against running but stressed that it was important to be screened by a physiotherapist before starting an exercise regime.
“For adults, jogging is the first thing that comes to mind when a doctor recommends exercise,” he said, adding that ageing could leave weak points in our bodies.
“A physiotherapist can recommend a suitable training regime which will not affect the weak areas,” he said.
Alternatives include swimming, cycling and other low impact activities such as step exercises, Dr Balwant added.

World Book and Copyright Day

Today 23 April 2010, World celebrate BOOK AND COPYRIGHT DAY

23 April is a symbolic date for world literature for on this date in 1616, Cervantes, Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega all died. It is also the date of birth or death of other prominent authors such as Maurice Druon, Haldor K.Laxness, Vladimir Nabokov, Josep Pla and Manuel Mejía Vallejo.
It was a natural choice for UNESCO's General Conference, held in Paris in 1995, to pay a world-wide tribute to books and authors on this date, encouraging everyone, and in particular young people, to discover the pleasure of reading and gain a renewed respect for the irreplaceable contributions of those who have furthered the social and cultural progress of humanity. In this respect, UNESCO created both the World Book and Copyright Day and the UNESCO Prize for Children's and Young People's Literature in the Service of Tolerance.

Shoe String Run 2010

Date: 18 Apr 2010
Time: 7.30am
Venue: Kota Kemuning
Distance: 7km & 3km

This was a very good and fun event for family outing. Min 2 members in a team and must be family related. All team members must cross the finishing line together, so member who arrived first still have to wait for the rest to come back.
They were not many participants compared to last year, it maybe due to lack of publicity and also clash with CAR and Jerantut run.
Beside the small dispute in A category, overall it was well organised and prize awarded were attractive.

2010 Boston Marathon Women's Bios

April 14, 2010
Below you will find bios about the top women's entrants for the 2010 Boston Marathon, as well as their bib numbers. We hope you print it out and have it with you as you watch on television or in person on Monday.
We've also produced's Preview of the 2010 Women's Boston Marathon, which includes our picks for who is going to win. If you are into the men's race, please see the's Preview of the 2010 Men's Boston Marathon, which includes our picks for who is going to win.
For more elite info, see the Boston marathon website.

Salina Kosgei KEN (Bib #1) - Reigning Boston Marathon Champion Kenyan Salina Kosgei won Boston last year in a thrilling sprint finish ahead of Ethiopian Dire Tune for the biggest win of her veteran career. American Kara Goucher was left 80m out of contention in the fast finish of the slow-paced race.
Kosgei ran ING New York later in 2009 and finished 5th. But she certainly doesn't appear ready to defend her title, as her half marathon prep race last month was a 75-minute one as compared to the 69-minute half she ran prior to last year's Boston. Now 33, Kosgei will hope for a slow pace and a kicker's finish again.

Teyba Erkesso ETH (Bib #4) - 2-Time Reigning Chevron
Houston Marathon Champion
Erkesso is one of the pre-race favorites. She won the 2009 and 2010 Chevron Houston Marathon in course records 2:24 and 2:23:53. She was 4th in the 2009 Bank of America Chicago Marathon behind Liliya Shobukhova, Irina Mikitenko and Lidiya Gregoriyeva.
Erkesso's latest result was a 4th-place finish in the RAK Half Marathon in February.

Dire Tune ETH (Bib #5) - Returning Boston Marathon Runner-Up
Tune will race her 14th marathon in Boston despite being listed as only 24 years old. Were it not for a fantastic kick from Salina Kosgei in Boston in 2009, Tune would be the 2-time reigning Boston Marathon Champion. Tune won Boston in 2008 in 2:25:25.
Like Erkesso, Tune is a 2-time Houston Marathon Champion (2007 and 2008), though Erkesso's performances were faster than Tune's Houston best of 2:24:40.
