INSPIRING PEOPLE- RAGS TO RUNNERS

The recent COBC potluck gatherings for photo-shoot and to take measurements at HERE speak wonders on how people can change their weight, size and physical measurement in a shortest span of time. Many people did not just gain a better physical appearance but their confidence were also elevated with the training at COBC. With better physique, confidence and stamina, most recruit began participating in various running events and over the weekend, 20 people from COBC traveled more than 400km to Penang Island to run the annual Penang Bridge International Marathon 2011. In a few convoys, there were Staff Sarge (COBC) (P) Dann,  Sarge (COBC) (P) Chun, LC (COBC) (P) Ridz, LC (COBC) (P) Resh, LC (COBC) (P) Ody, James Fong, Chan Meng Yam, Lilian Lee, Shear Ling Toh, Joanitta Zaleha Yusoff, Noor A. Othman, Rienna Choo, Afik Kutcher, Amy Ho, Wong Siew Peng.

Barely a year ago, none of them were runners. Infact, they were so adamant against running that we had to convince and support them to run but now, most of COBC pioneer recruits aka Otai (Old Timers) have all became an avid runners and a great advocacy for running. They traveled all around Asia continent as well as around the world just to run!!

Some of, now the season runners at COBC that travelled around the globe were James Fong, Lilian Lee, Chan Meng Yam, Shear Ling Toh, John Chuah, Joanitta Zaleha Yusoff, Noor A. Othman whom traveled to Thailand, Cambodia and Singapore amongst other places to run. Rose Emini Pahamin, Nyna Mohsen, Ilyanna Aylin Ayob and Yum Kin Kok ran full marathon in Australia and Berlin. Viki Lim and Jeffery Wong went to Berlin for a full marathon. Yum Kin Kok and Ilyanna Aylin Ayob went to New York and Paris as well as other continent just to run. Last weekend, our Ampang recruit Nicholas Chew and Bandar Utama Bravo Damien Mac Cord completed the Powerman dualthon Challenge. Nicholas completed it with a PB (personal Best).
