The 1st Malaysia Women Marathon (MWM) held in Shah Alam on 7th April 2013 was easily one of the most enjoyable races I have ever been part of. Although the targeted number of participants fell short by about 700 (1,800 registered when 2,500 was the aim), it was still an event full of wonderful memories for me and my running sisters. I got to meet a running legend (Kathrine Switzer), I befriended the race director Karen Loh, I improved my half marathon timing, and most important of all, I witnessed some of my friends completing their first full marathons.

I hereby present you a video of my memories of MWM. This montage is dedicated to all the men and women who have ever inspired me to become better and to never give up.

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!
