17 MAY 2011, LONDON
My KL running kaki, Azhar, and I were fortunate to have my ex-schoolmate, Fiona, to take us on a "London By Foot" tour. We started our 11K run at Paddington and went through Hyde Park (passing by the Royal Albert Hall along the way), Green Park, St James Park, past the Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, towards the London Eye by the river, St Paul's, Millennium Footbridge, Shakepeare's Globe and finally ending our sesh just after the Tower Bridge.

24 MAY 2011, ROMA
As fate had it, Azhar arrived in Rome on my last day there so I dragged him to the gorgeous Villa Borghese, the city's largest public park, for a run.

19 MAY 2011, BARCELONA
Got some precious 'me' time when I went for a solo run in beautiful Barça. The architecture truly blew my mind and I couldn't help myself from stopping so much during this short run all in the name of capturing this city's beauty on my camera.

Myself, Nana and Shanaz did a couple of training runs at the famous Central Park before the three of us ran the NYC Marathon.
