My Running Gadget - Running Like A Real Runner


So, one more week to go and I’m gonna do a run again.

No matter how the run will turn out to be, I’m gonna make sure I’ll be running graciously in style. Unlike my first run ever at the BIM 2009 a couple of months ago, I’m gonna be more prepared this time. Errr, I hope. Haha!
I know, running is a seriously damn tiring business. In running such a long distance, a runner should expect a lot of distractions to come up his/her way. The sensitivity of the ears and brains will increase ten times over. The fatigue muscles will desperately communicate with the brains.  With brains being brains, they will keep telling you to stop and give up running. So what you need is something to INTERCEPT that communication. For that purpose, I bought this.

A super-tiny SONY NWZ-B142F Digital Music Player! It is so small and light-weighted I should have no problem tucking it inside my pocket. Or even underneath my underwear if I get too worried about losing it!

This thing had cost me RM 159. I know, it is quite a heavy investment for such a once-in-awhile event but what the heck? Didn’t I say I’m gonna run graciously in style this time..? This is just  a part of it! :-P

OK guys. See you at the starting line. :-))

Respect. I can never get myself interested in marathons. Yes, I'm that lazy! :-D

JIPP said...

AHaks! No. You're not lazy Gallivanter. You probably have more other interesting things to do. I'm so new to this marathon thingy so I don't know how are things gonna be about it soon. Hehe. Ulai, thanks. Jumpa di sana... hehe

anee said...

Ehem..gadgets baru ek..??jgn lupa charge baterinya mlm sblm marathon ya..kasut running baru teda ka?kami recommend New Balanced utk middle $,kalu ada extra $$$,bli Asics..percayalah..walaupun jenama itu tia se-glamer adidas/nike/reebok namun, spesis ini(New Balanced) suda terbukti kehebatannya & keselesaannya.Kalu tak silap Dec ni ada sale NB.Mari kita ramai2 p bli time tu.

JIPP said...

Hi anee. Ala, tida sempat beli kasut baru ni. New Balance? OK ka tu? Nanti kalo ada sale jgn lupa sound. Sa rasa mmg patut suda kasut buruk sa tu mo ganti baru. hehe. Wokey, see u soon..Thanks..

Chin Yit said...

Jipp, i agree with si Anee, NB is good for mid range shoes. But KK limited stock and models and only 1 shop selling. Asics got 2 shops selling, but really mahal, about rm 499.
Nike sucks, sure buka like buaya, adidas is ok, but they dont make size 9 1/2 sudah for me, size 9 terus jump to 10.
NB got size and fit, got narrow(E), Wide(2E), extra wide(4E)
See you on the line, make sure ada style ya, mesti oakley running glasses, livestrong running vest, seluar adidas, socks nike, kasut asics, running watch timex, topi nike

Chin Yit said...

oh ya, ulai, herman and my self using New Balance now, i think Anee also.. hehehe

alice said...

ehem...i use nike. when i buka not like buaya pun. its like cotton candy.haha!!
i previously use reebok (courtesy of anee..hehehe) comfy as hell!!
watever makes your feet happy, the brand doesnt matter punyalah.
adidas is over rated.


Hi Jipp! see you at the run. and don't forget to sign the petition, get your friends, fams, cousins, uncles, uncle's girlfren, etc etc...to sign as well.

COAL AIN'T COOL!!!

ULAI said...

cy...lena pun guna NB juga. kami sama model tapi dia punya yg latest. harap2 nie xmas NB ada half price kah 70% kah lagi bagus. korang rasa Asics ada kah juga diskaun tu? 499 tu mcm bole beli 2 pasang NB sdh ohh. sy punya kasut pun haus sdh nie. kenapa pula Nike buka like buaya? as far as i know, buaya tu ada di Kinabatangan sama Sukau. dorang pakai nike kah juga sana tu?

JIPP said...

How come i nver heard of this NB..? Ketinggalan betul ka sa ni..? Why do i feel like buying it now..:-( And CY, I'm afraid I'm gonna run without those fancy stuff yg ko sebut tu. Haha. May be in our next marathon la.. Singapore run ka. :-P OK Alice, I'm gonna do all i can for the petition. I've always been an environ-mentalist. hehe. Ulai, kita tunggu sja sale..finger crossed..

Chin Yit said...

Jipp, you minta all the running mags from ulai, once she finish baca.
http://www.newbalance.com/running/training
Mine is the MR850
Buaya Nike, apparently, there is actually an issue with the Glue in the Nike shoes, does not go well with heat or water. Even current Nike shoes SOP is to not wash the shoe, best is wipe with damp cloth.
Else the soles open up from the shoe and you get... Buaya Nike

new balance.. ... bagus itu... bagus u minta angkat satu ke sdk.. herman sini...

JIPP said...

Buaya Nike.. LOL! Wokey, i believe u guys. i'll check out NB. Sounds interesting. Herman, napa x join Sdkn run? Let's join next year's BIM lagi la. hehe.P/s: Ulai, nanti ko pass sma sa tu mags k. Thanks.

ULAI said...

cy is always very good in creating new name. i hope my NB will stay as NB only. next year BIM cuba full! sepa berani? sepa cukup biji? bah taun depan baru sy pass ko tu mags sbb sy mau study hard tis xmas dulu...hahahaha

anee said...

kami semua guna NB atas recommendation c Ulai,I've tried Nike/Reebok b4 namun tia sehebat NB..Yg NB d KK mmg limited choices namun d tokeh I like..!Very helpful n NB knowledgeable,dia kasi ko try tu kasut jln2 p sana sini lagi.Lps tu kalu persuasive enough(buat muka kesian cam Shin Chan),dia kasi discount cos when I bought my NB time bukan sale,up to 40% lagi tu..cheap (well,reasonable I should put) RM169..namun NB sa mau d hujung2 nyawa suda sebab teda spare shoes(mgkn sbb discount 40% itu juga)..makanya,nnt kalu ada sale n u r happen to b in KK time tu mari kita serbu NB shop ramai2..gerenti dapat libi banyak discount.
BTW,kami bli Ipod Shuffle kami 1GB RM100.:p
Next aim sa,bli watch yg ada cal/miles/timer/heart rate, sepa tau jenama apa punya yg bagus(reasonable $)?

Electronic memory,to me, is something that I seemingly will never have enough of. It's as if megabytes and gigabytes have become a permanent part of my day to day existence. Ever since I bought a Micro SD Card for my DS flash card, I've been on permanent watch like a prison guard for high memory at low prices. I feel like I'm going insane.
