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.
