48th Birthday

This year, the Penang Bridge Run coincided with my birthday so I started the day in my favourite way; a 21-KM run with 30,000 people. 

Sam and I were nursing injuries so we had to walk to 21 but if we had run, we would not heard the kitten mewing at KM 17 and Sam would not have hurdled two highway dividers to rescue the little bugger. 

Sam walked the last 4 K with the kitten mewing loudly (hungry, not scared) in her running vest. It would have made a good birthday present but it would have been impossible to bring it into Sarawak. 

It now resides on the USM campus.
