Marathon Maniac #8234 - Shannon Francis Lee Bala

Maniac #28 from Malaysia

Marathon Maniacs are a worldwide group of runners who are maniacal in running marathons. Do visit their website:, if you want to learn more about them. As of today there are 28 Maniacs in Malaysia, according to the Marathon Maniac database. In Kuching, after me (Maniac #7614), there's Shannon Francis Lee Moh Lung @ Tingang Bala, a relative newcomer to full marathon running. Shannon achieved his Marathon Maniac feat by running two full marathons within 16 days - the Penang Bridge International Marathon on 17th November 2013 and the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore on 1st December 2013. Those were his second and third FMs respectively. He also ran at the Standard Chartered Kuala Lumpur Marathon on 29th September 2013. This Fat Old Man Running wishes to congratulate Shannon on joining the Insane Asylum. They threw away the key a long time ago. So once you get in, it's forever! Here's me hoping that more runners in Kuching will take up the challenge of becoming a member of the world's most insane running club!
