Celebrating Her 1st Year Running Anniversary
Senior veteran, Bernardine Chin, only started running regularly one year ago, and already, she has completed 2 Ultra Marathons, 3 Full Marathon and 2 Half Marathons; not to mention many more shorter distance trail and road races.
Feet Of Fury
On 21-August 2016, Bernardine will celebrate her running anniversary by running in her 1st PJ Half Marathon 2016 after recently having completed her grueling consecutive back-to-back Standard Chartered Kuala Lumpur Marathon 2016 and Kuching Marathon 2016.
Taping For Protection
Due to Bernardine’s hectic running schedule, Bernardine has been experiencing soreness in her feet when she runs for long durations.
So, I recommended using KAMST MS-K (Musculoskeletal) Tape from Japan. The KAMST Tapes are precut, and by following the simple instructions, Bernardine taped both feet and one on her right niggling knee for Kuching Marathon 2016.
Afterwards, she noted that she didn’t feel the usual foot soreness. Sadly, the biggest challenge at her first hometown Kuching Marathon was not her own cardiovascular or muscular strength, but the lack of water at 4 consecutive water stations that threatened to derail her plans. Nevertheless, her never-say-die attitude kept her going until the finish line. It just goes to show that you never know what’s going to happen in a full marathon. I am glad to report that Bernardine managed to complete Kuching Marathon 2016 injury-free, but the integrity of the race organiser took a helluva verbal bashing by the irate runners…
