Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve completed two 10k runs. I really wasn’t expecting to do so much running. While I’ve loved the exercise and used to do it quite regularly, the truth is that since I returned from London, I’ve not been very active.
It is exactly one more week to Malaysia Day, which means that the LimaPuluhTujuh project is also in it final legs.
