Teh U Mei
Kuala Lumpur / Malaysia
I am a practicing Pharmacist (UK) & certified Fitness Nutritionist (NASM), currently living in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. I love long distance running, windsurfing, TRX and combat. I also love food, travelling, diving, running marathons and spending time in the company of good friends and loved ones. I like to question convention and I hate being told that “that cannot be done”. It’s true, that I don’t have all the answers, but I do know what works for me.
I run because when I do, there’s always the chance to be extraordinary. A chance to start unknown and to finish unforgettable. A chance to overcome all obstacles, to fight through pain and suffering to test my emotional limits and boundaries, to experiment with the potential of the human body and discover just how far I can push myself. And a chance to feel like a completely different person, a person who inspires others, and who they strive to be! The gun goes off, and everything changes. From that moment on, there’s only one conscious thought pounding in your mind for the entirety of the race. Finish. At that moment, life is about being the best version of yourself and nothing else matters. And that is why I run.
My running experiences started 10 years ago – I ran for recreation with my running groups, then I dabbled in many 21KM races and finally, have several international full Marathons under my belt. I prefer running away from home, as the excitement of a new place, and meeting new people is just unbelievable -words cannot describe the aura of running with a herd of kindred spirits.
