Bad Boy Edison Chen running for StanChart Hong Kong Marathon 2012!

 Edison Chen made it to the headlines again. This time, it involves heavy panting, profuse sweating, heart pounding and mind blowing physical actions!!!

Getting ready for the Standard Chartered HK Marathon which was held last Sunday, on the 5th Feb.

I would like to share with you guys some shots of Edison Chen at the starting point of SCHKM 2012. Photos courtesy of Mr. Tey Eng Tiong, a ultrarunner/ photographer/ running ambassador from Malaysia and from Running With Passion.

Edison was decked with Nike gear from top to toe - long sleeve shirt, running short and a pair of Nike running shoes. Is that the latest Nike Fuel Band on his right wrist?

A discerning audio fan we think - he also sported a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones. We wonder what was he listeing to...:D His own album? Heheh! 

For those uninitiated, Edison Chen (陳冠希) is an actor-singer from HK who was embroiled in a sex photo scandal that has rocked Hong Kong and publicly embarrassed celebrities, including Gillian Chung (鍾欣桐), Bobo Chan (陳文媛) and Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝) about four years ago. 

He also caused a media buzz when he was found dating a barely legal 16-year-old model, Cammi Tse (謝芷蕙) and photo of them kissing circulated in the Internet last year. 

A lot of people accused his participation in the charity run as an attempt to offset the bad press he received for his sex scandals. 

Despite the bad press and all, Edison managed to complete the 42.19km race in an exceptional timing of 3 hours, 55 minutes and 46 seconds (Thats very fast!), raising a total of HK$1 million (RM388,200) for Nike's NOMADRUN Charity Project, which benefits the Changing Youth Lives Foundation, Hong Kong. 

nice photo taken with the Finisher's Medal..
Congrats Edison!
