Since 2013, Gilbert joined his first half-marathon, since the last in 8 years, with the thoughts of challenging his limits in running. Despite the plus-size physique, and weighs more than 70kg, unlike most runners, he continues to push boundaries on the route. Gilbert continues to compete himself in many races since, and the motivation to keep up with a regular running routine. By day, he works in an architectural practice and by evening, he don his tights and track shoes. Now covering distances at least twice a week for his regular training regime, he find time and joy running along his regular route around the city. Gilbert hopes to run his own architectural practice, with a bistro fronting his office.
