Joining the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2024 this year, Natalie Tong has Chow Yun Fat to thank for her new love of running.
As reported on Mingpao, the actress, who participated in the 10K race on 21 January, took to social media to thank the actor, saying that she had never been interested in the sports before, and that she initially did it for the challenge.
“Thank you, Coach Chow, for your guidance and help. You taught me that running trains my heart, challenges my endurance and patience, and not to be affected by the outside world, by just focusing on your breathing,” she wrote.
Natalie also thanked the group of runners who accompanied her in the event, saying that she was able to maintain a good heart rate throughout the race without experiencing shortness of breath.
“Thank you for persisting. Thank you for the fun that running brings me. I will continue to challenge myself,” she added.
Among other celebrities that were seen at the run include Chow Yun Fat himself, Mandy Lam, Roxanne Ho, and the heavily pregnant Inez Leong.
