was a great fun. We entered a fun relay race called the Pisang Relay in which instead of a baton, we use banana (pisang in Malay and piesang in Afrikaans).
You know you are in for a good time with this lot :
The event was well represented by the Japanese expat running community here too. Even the Hosotanis (that's one of the top & podium finishers family in KL/Malaysia running scene : mom, dad & son all are great runners) were there.
Team Acorn. Errr dunno what's the team's name but they had an acorn logo in their running vest. They had two teams running. The first runner in the first group had a big banana on his head.
The lady in the team wore a banana (plastic one, I think) on her headband. Nice. :)
I think they are out in force maybe because they are using this event as a practise run for the 8th Malaysia International Ekiden Run Putrajaya next week. Yes. Ekiden. There'll be exchange of tatsuki (sash) during the run.
Son ran with me and hubby last week, completing 2 loops of 2.72km each. Isn't he such a sport? :-)
