On 15th September 2013, people of all races, young and old gathered together at Dataran Merdeka to participate in the annual McDonald’s Olympic Day Run. Held just one day before Malaysia Day made this event particularly memorable. This year proved to be another successful round with a turn up of almost 15,000 people.

Did you realize that I was wearing a different T-shirt from the participants? Yeah… mine was the 2010 Olympic Day Run version LOL! I didn’t do much exercise lately so I’m not sure if I can run 10km! I jokingly told people that I’ve been running since 2010 and only managed to reach in 2013. XD
