Standard Chartered KL Marathon

Jun 27, 2010
The Standard Chartered KL Marathon kicked off Sunday morning at Dataran Merdeka.
As early as 5am for the Full Marathon even is slight raining .

There is several multiple categories available such as Full Marathon (42km),
Half Marathon (21km),Corporate Challenge (10KM), Fun Run (5km),
Seeing is believing (3km) and Kids Dash.
So to start my first ever run, I registered myself for the 5km run as a Fun Run πŸ˜›
As i consider myself .. not a runner and not a sport person πŸ˜›
Thot to bring along Jeremy for this fun run, but at the end we didn’t take him along .
Too young and he is not feeling so well ….
Better let him save his energy for this Sunday Sport Day by the Kiddy .

It was quite great event, Here some photos to show :
wow .. alot of people …. i tell u ….
The finish point .
As for me, i took almost one hour to finish for the 5KM … hahahh .. so “char” !!
The winner took 2 hours and 17 minutes to finish the full marathon (42KM).
( According to a comments that leave to me :)))
I really salute them …

At the end of the run , we each got a Certificate .
Each got a “tiger balm” for shoulder and neck rub πŸ˜›
No metal for 5km ..

The Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2010 is set to do Malaysia proud and beckons the public to support this year’s of having 16,500 runners!

Alright , after this run, my goal for next year will be 10KM !! πŸ˜›

Btw, i also meet up with a blogger – Paik Ling .. she’s a real runner & very friendly too πŸ˜›
& also meet up with a Silent reader to my blog …
Thanks and sorry didn’t get to know your name, cos it was so sudden that you know my name πŸ˜›

As i m abit “blur” and tired … thanks again and nice to meet u πŸ˜›

…………..

After all the events , that’s a sad news happened during the race as well …

Just read from The Star Newspaper .
A runner participating in a 10km run had collapsed and died during the race,
adding that he was given first-aid treatment on site and rushed to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
But died on his way to the hospital . 😦
I guess he is pushing and running too hard .
According to one of the runner , the
ambulance came late O.o
Arrived after 20 minute ,
When the ambulance arrived,
It did not have an automated external defibrillator or a face mask with pump (to pump in more air into the lungs) ??????

My hub always remind me,
If you think you can’t run .. just walk …
yah .. i was like half run half walk, as i m not train enough for this, even is 5Km,
Do not underestimate the distance ….

Overall is a great run minus the death.
