Participation in marathon is still remain my casual workout since few years back. This year, I forced myself to measure up on my improvement over the time especially after completed few big mountain hiking.

Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2010

27 June 2010

My running time in the past was fairly below average @ 90 min for 10km distance with difficulties. Today, I managed to achieve 78 min (in recent Siemens 10K run) in a same distance with comfortable level. Thanks to my series of mountain hiking lately.

For me, my great interest is yet to be in this field.

My result for SCKLM 2010 is as below (82 min):

This year, I have a lot friends who joined for fun, aligned with over-marketed marathon event in various media channels. It draws a huge crowd and some of my passive friends also joined and caught me surprise.

As usual, the event flag off at early morning @ Dataran Merdeka. We didn’t meet with anyone there due to massive huge crowd and different categories we were participating in.

Vest and bib number were collected 2 days earlier at nearby Titiwangsa lake. The sling bag is somewhat better and nicer this year, I mean more presentable for other usage.

The run itself is quite relaxing provided I have trained in other sport activities. As usual, I sweat a lot in short few km, upon reaching last 2 km, we were cheered up by cheerleaders group and I hesitate to walk along but running non-stop. Haha. A short motivation boost good for everyone.

Medal give-away once completed the run. Another medal into my collection for my own satisfaction.

Hopefully in future, I’m motivated to try further distance run such as 15km & 21km.

My next run will be Penang Bridge International Marathon coming this November. Yet another great trip going on soon.
