Steven Chan & Jenny Huang
Presenting RFL2019 run ambassador couple, Jenny Huang and Steven Chan who are known by many in the running community. They say, “couple runs together, sticks together.” Perhaps this explains why they are always spotted in many run events together.
Steven Chan is a triathlon and distance coach who started off as a basketball coach in his younger years. He played competitive basketball for many years until injuries put paid to it. In his 40s now, he still looks young and dashing.
Armed with a degree in Sports Science coupled with a business degree, sports certainly run deep through his veins. After his basketball stint, he wanted to learn more about triathlon sport and he then enrolled in triathlon coaching courses.
When asked for his first thought as our run ambassador, this is what he has to say, “I have always been interested to use sports as the platform to give back to society and I am glad to be given this opportunity to be able to help spread the good cause of this run to more people. As I age, my eyesight is also deteriorating. I begin to understand and appreciate the importance of sight more.”
His inspiring message – Be quick to sign up for this race and start training for it. Do not wait till last minute before you start to think of the training. Your body will need time for adaptation.
Jenny is a regular feature in many run events and she is also among the podium finishers too. An Asian American, she has been living here for 17 years. To keep her fit and healthy, she runs 6 times a week. She is 45 but looks much younger than that – thanks to running, of course.
She is a physiotherapist at Phoenix Rehab Group and her forte is to help injured body parts heal faster and get stronger.
When asked for her thought as our run ambassador, in her own words, she said, “Would be fun to inspire runners to run more and new runners to find the love in running. And mostly to spread awareness on the importance of sight and also we, as runners, can help those with challenges in sight to run.”
Her inspiring message – Keep running and doing your very best when you toe any start line. Always do your homework in training bc that’s the journey that makes crossing the finish line meaningful.
