I am Annie Yee. I call myself as Ugly-saddy( ugly and sad). I have a nickname of elephant. Others do call me whale. Why do so? I am known as a XL girl whom can RUN!
A simple hobby transformed me from a nearly suicidal teenage to a cheerful lady and now I am going to achieve my dream, Boston Marathon.
The best of me when I realized I can run.
I ran 16 marathons in 5 years from Tokyo to Australia with fully support from my lovely mother and got the title of first Malaysia Women Marathon champion last year.
I have a group of team members, 2ndskin team mates who are helping me to become the best of Annie Yee.
A rebellious teenage who struggled to live, hurting herself by cutting herself, isolated herself from the friends and now, she is an actively runner who is passionate in running, secures a job which she loves, meet people who inspire her and helping her throughout the running journey, this has drastically groom her to be a better person. That’s me, Annie Yee.
My 24 years are similar to run a marathon. Marathons outshone me to be the best of me.
You feel easy to run in between 1-10km. After 10km-25km, you struggle and curse yourself when are you joining this stupid 42.195km? 25km-35km, you tell yourself to stay strong as family and friends are cheering for you and from 35km-42.195km, you talk to yourself, “Be strong,you will get through the pains and suffers, you will smile when you pass the finishing line and it will be the best of you to achieve another marathon.”
Friends, do stay strong and be grateful of every single thing you do even we are just a very ordinary person in the big world. You will be the best of you in your life!!!!
