My Sydney half marathon

 I ran a race overseas for the first time – and with a little help, I smashed yet another personal record!

 On Sunday, May 19th 2013, I ran my first overseas race in Sydney, Australia. Instead of telling you in writing, I’d rather show you my experience in video! It is about 5:35 minutes long. Enjoy!

Note: The background music of the video is called Deep Freeze by Animistix from their Transmutation album. It’s indigenous-infused trance music at its best!

Hi! I am Fairy from Petaling Jaya, Malaysia - currently residing in Sydney, Australia. This blog contains write-ups on my fitness adventures, whether it's running, swimming, hiking, Zumba, whatever! If I sweat, I write! As a young adult in my twenties, I led a relatively sedentary lifestyle before I had an awakening in 2011. I was overweight by age 30 and finally decided to turn my life around, so I started to reclaim my health back by losing 20 percent of my then body weight by playing dance and fitness video games! I've not looked back since and now happily lead an active lifestyle. If you want to get in touch with me, please email me at fairy[at] or DM me on Instagram @myindo. Thanks for stopping by!
