Ready For The Music Run? 6 Tips To Get Ready For Your Very First 10k

If you haven't already heard, The Music Run™ by AIA Vitality is returning to Kuala Lumpur for its 4th edition this November 4th! This time with major upgrades for Music Runners. We are so excited about this as this would be our first time doing the 10km run. The annual run is kicking things up a notch with the addition of a new timed 10k track for runners who want to take their fitness game to new heights. Whether you are walking a gentle 5k (which we did earlier this year at the Score Run here), running the 5k or training for the 10k, preparation is the key to crossing the finish line this November 4th. Here are some tips to share with you if you are new to running, or just want to reach your full potential at the KL Sports City for The Music Run™ by AIA Vitality! More on the run here.

It was such a co-incident that we were approached to join in the fun and we totally love music, hence we immediately said yes to the run. We have been keeping an active lifestyle one year ago around this time when we started picking up walking on a daily basis and we have been doing that since then. Keep moving helps us to maintain a fitter body and a more alert mind, most definitely and we have seen and experienced the benefits of it. 

Pre-run Preparation
Get ready
Always pack and get ready before any race. You don't want to take too much and be laden down but you want to be prepared for all eventualities. Pack light is the key! The essentials may look like this: clothing for change, trainers, towel, water, snacks, plasters, muscle supports if needed, money, phone, holder for valuables and any medication you see fit.

A Good Night Sleep
Pre-run nerves are normal, especially if you are a first timer. The 5k and 10k runs are all about having fun and taking part. So just relax and enjoy a good night's sleep before the run the next day. We know we will, most definitely (you should know by now how much we love our beauty sleep *_^)

No one has taken oil cleansing with such dedication and infinite innovative approach as seriously as this Japanese brand, Shu Uemura. As the brand celebrates its cleansing oil's 50th anniversary this year (Shu Uemura's very first cleansing oil created by Mr. Shu Uemura himself in 1967, based on his extensive knowledge working as a foremost Hollywood makeup artist in the 1950s), two lovely selection of products from the Ultime8∞ (Infinite) skincare range were delivered to us to experience its ultimate luxurious cleansing power with its blend of 8 botanical origin oils supposedly giving us a supreme sensorial cleansing experience - ultimate efficacy, ultimate texture, ultimate experience. The secret to Shu Uemura cleansing oil is protecting the skin's delicate balance while removing makeup and impurities in a single step. How did the two products fair? Let's have a look, shall we?

Inspiration | Too Good For Goodbyes In October, Not Just Quite Yet

The heart finds so much beauty that the eyes can never see

The mind and body have been in battle for most parts of September, they could not seem to comprehend the notion of harmony and acceptance, which we yearn so much to achieve, but with the arrival of new month, new hope presents itself in the most quiet manner, almost like whispers in the night, filled with silent desires to recuperate and re-energise ... we remain hopeful, like we always do.  

Hi there October, would you be the same kind of October we came to know last year? 

Last year this month, the universe presented us with a pleasant surprise, one which is out of our expectation, one we have come to realise, over the course of one year, it is the best thing that could happen to us, truthfully, for without its presence and existence, life would have been less colourful.

Could all things remain the same but yet different? Contradicting? Yes and no, as the only thing that is constant in life is impermanence itself - the rule of the universe. Never be delusional to believe that we are the master of all things, for we are only one small chess in this big board game called life, all moves have been pre-determined. The course is set, yet we could only try our best to live it out, one day at a time, one step at a time, to improve and be a better version of ourselves, right till the end of our life journey.

We could only hope and wish that good things like this one, would last, at least a little longer for us to enjoy those moments more and to be grateful that somehow, our path crossed, for a reason that only the universe knows, and for us to understand. 

We are too good for goodbyes, yet, we can indulge in our hope, to relive those unforgetable memories, perhaps in the spirit of celebration, if it ever happens, the best kind of people leave behind, with us, created by us. Cherish what comes your way in life, for they may just be here, for only as long as they are meant to be.
