Welcome 2010

I opened computer at 8:30 and I saw the time table unconsciously. It appeared 2010-1-1, I was shock just then. Although I knew today is the first day of 2010, I was not ready for this. How quickly the time passed. Even I did not have enough time to look back what did I do in2009.

For me, last year is important and special. It was the first integrated year I worked as a staff. There were many first times that I have done in 2009. 2009 is gone now, I think I shall have a summary, which connerns not only the things I gained, but also others I lose. Then, I will welcome 2010.

Xiamen International Marathon 2010

It was a fine day today. There come the International Marathon 2010 in Xiamen, one of the most beautiful cities in China. The activity was held in HuanDao Road(环岛路) where has many beautiful beach scenery.

I was lucky and was one of the total 7 representatives of TAECO to participate the activity.and we only participated the 5-mile distance competition.

I did't sleep well, because I had to get up at 5:30 and reach the Xiamen International Certre of exhibition where the competition start at 6:30 as per instruction.

A great many runners gathered on the square outside the exhibition hall building. The number of the people was over 50,000, we were arranged in the rear of the troop, so after the signal fired at 8:00, we were able to run until 8:10. And because of the large croud of people, we could not run fast. In the end, we spent 1 hour in finishing the 5-mile distance and did't feel tied at all.

During the competition, we run, walked, jumped, laughed, talked, even ate. so, for us, this activity just like a celebration to welcome to New Year, but a competiton. It was very interesting.
TAECO Environmental Group organized an activity of planting mangroves in longhai, a town in zhangzhou on 19th December,2009. There were 60 of totle approximately 400 members of Environmental Union participating the acitivity and I was lucky enough to get the chance.I was so happy. Not only i could participate the funny activity,but also this activity was meaningful for environment.As we know,mangrove is a kind of plant that has strong root and can protect the earth near the bank from corrading and flushing.

It took more than 1 hour to reach the site.The Group had already organized an activity of planting mangroves here,so the purpose of this activity was weeding the weed around the mangroves planted before.Because the weed near the bank have strong roots and hard to be weeded,we trampled the weed around the mangroves to ensure the mangroves have enough sunshine and space to grow.

After the whole forenoon action,we finished the work.Then we went to Puzhao Temple(普照禅诗) to have lunch and had a visit.The temple have many features, the architectural style in particular.And then,we went home.
I think it was a meaningful and funny activity.
