At the Firefighter Cyberjaya Night Half Marathon, we gave a surprise to the fastest hijabista! Intan Suraya, who is our marathon runner also model presented the small token to the two 10 km winners at the end of the run! Here is Azlina, flanked by the Firefighter mascot and Intan Suraya. We were not able to take the picture of the second winner, Cik Najmi unfortunately.
Intan Suraya completed her 21km run swiftly despite unwell the day before. She took it slow, but she made it. We were there to support our sisters and friends who participated in the night run. It was a cool night after a heavy downpour not long before the run flagged off. This was also the Intan’s first run in a complete Nashata activewear. She wore the Optimal Ultra Set : Amin Hijab, ultra A-cut top and the skirt compression pants – all specially designed for active muslimah.
We supported many sisters along the way and surprised to see Jaslinda Jasmani finishing her run pretty fast and confidently. We saw more sisters finishing pretty early too but they were all too fast to be captured on camera lenses at night. Jaslinda is clearly UNSTOPPABLE. She smiled widely as she leaped with a big smile at the finishing line.
Many said it was a tough run, especially when they had to climb the hill along the road where the Malaysian Communications And Multimedia Commission was. Running along dark roads was quite challenging especially for women.
But all in all, we saw our sisters and friends all smiling ear to ear. Here are some pictures of our happy runner sisters.
We were delighted to see Karen Loh, the Malaysia Women Marathon founder at the run. She was among the top 4 finisher for the half marathon.
All trucks were shining and were out for participants to look at. Congrats to all who ran and put up a good show that night!
To sisters and hijabistas, well done! Next is how can we help improve running performance among hijabista. Who would be the top hijabista marathon runner in Malaysia? Tell us what you think about it?
