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.
Running a marathon (quarter-marathon) is no longer in my treasured activity since last 2 years. I’ve been tempting to do this actually, however, tendency of hill-hiking is very strong. I prefer to have my everywhere hiking, exploring nature and island rather than this.
Anyway, I’d choose to start running again this year by joining Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2009 (SCKLIM).

SCKLIM 2009 @ Dataran Merdeka
To make up on this event, I woke up quite early to catch with flag off time of my 10km category @ 7.00am. We reached at Dataran Merdeka earlier than expected. After meet up with another friend (Mei Ching), we headed to the starting point. We managed to secure a good start at very front space.
On a day before, I collected goodies bag, shirt/vest and bib number from same place also.
The goodies bag looks catchy and nice to hold.
Out of all run that I’d participated, this run was giving me the best quality stuff in small quantity (bag and shirt) but many useless advertisement/vouchers.
I’ve no problem running on this kind of 10km run after being trained a lot by swimming and gym routine.
I sweat a lot although I don’t feel tiredness after an hour running (of course with walking as well). Upon reaching the end point, we were cheered by supporter and whistler to boost up our last drop of energy.
I was happy to line up to pick up my medal, which is damn long queue (30 minutes wasted).
At least, I’d pull in another completion medal into my collection box for my own inspiration.
My 10km run was ended just like that….urgghh. Hope to try 15km next time (GE 30k Run).
Got a plan for next run after this. Here we go: Adidas King of The Road on 2nd Aug 2009.
