Being in member of 2ndskin family not only grows me up in running, I have grown up in my life. I know a guy named Chan Jun Shen who was very popular (yet still very famous now). A wrong click “accept” in Facebook brought this friendship extended to joining into 2ndskin.
In this family, we have variety of sport-men ranging from runner to ultra-man and ironman. Let’s talk about the most competent leader, Eugene Teoh. In 2ndskin, he is like a big tree who gives shades to us, protecting us from harm and guiding us. Reminiscing back to the past, his genuine guidance and advices made me move on in my life when I was in dilemma. It is hard to find someone who is supportive of you and you can feel comfortable to talk to when you have secrets. Apart from this, he is the man who finds sponsorships for supporting our team, BRAVO TO HIM!!!
Every member in 2ndskin plays unique roles whom you will be surprised when you know how determined, diligent and how much of effort and commitment they put in sports and family as well, especially Eugene and Tri-Stupe. They have always played the roles to be a caring husband, good daddy, hardworking workers and competitive sportmen. Tell me, how many people are able to balance it? Time management and to differentiate the priority are the values we need to learn from these two guys.Being in this family, I feel warmed and contented. Last year, year 2013 in Women International Marathon, my team planned from the beginning, where is the best distance to support the runners/ when is the best time/quantity of Hammer Nutrition/location of set up the booth etc. Just because I was going to join this race, they have decided to give a hand to other participants and supported the event be merrier. We whatsapp days and nights to discuss this. J It was a sweet memory for me in this race. Their presence enlightened me and I achieved a remarkable result

We are not the top runners or top in the list, but the spirit of we have in the team moves us, be a brighter and achieving the dreams which of us looking for. Being in this team, I do really changed from a pessimistic person to a better person.
