KL Towerthon 2009...Confirmed

16 FEB 2009: Finally received an email from my friend (TCM) that confirmed my registration and participation in the KL Towerthon 2009, which will be held on the 1st of March 2009 at KL Tower. This will be my 1st time joining the Towerthon event. Therefore, I’m not really sure about the procedures, just knew that I have to run about one kilometer uphill before climbing 2,058 steps to reach Tower Head 3 at 288 meter above ground level. Sounds fun but tough isn’t it? With all those mixed feeling of excitement cum anxiety cum challenging, I’ve started my training aka jogging today at the nearby park after work. Hopefully 2 weeks are enough for me to catch up the stamina required.

Anyone who will join this Towerthon? Let me know and maybe we can meet up for a chit chat after reaching the top.



Went for a family outing last Sunday to Putrajaya where our 1st stop was at Alamanda followed by Satay lunch at “Taman Warisan Pertanian”. Took some photos that I would love to share with you guys here. Looking at those photos of my nephew and niece taken, I've realized that they have really grown up a lot, especially my niece. She is now exactly a mini version of her mum aka my elder sister. Bet she will grow up as another sweet and beautiful princess.

Twilight Zone said...

Your niece has grown and so has her uncle in Red-T. You run so much and that might wear out your knees fast. I've met many veterans who now limps. So scary!

SK: Finishing shouldn't be a problem la...but maybe will take hours, haha. Sure can chit-chat while enjoying the fascinating view of KL.

Medie007: Don't worry, I bet somebody will be more than willing to offer "mouth-to-mouth" lor.

JD Cole: Hey, this is so mean. Hehe, then I definitely won't be "fine" huh.

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

Danny: Thanks for your support ya. But I don't think you can take lift up on that day lor. The whole KL Tower will be reserved for this event I presume.

Twilight Zone. Yes yes, the uncle has definitely grown BIGGER, especially after CNY. Some people did tell me about the knee problem though but I think I should be fine as I'm not considered as regular runner. :)

Sam said...

I would faint going up the stairs too, but it still sounds fun though! :P

TZ said...

Dude, you need to train on climbing the staircase too... use those condominium emergency staircase to train yourself ... small and less air... :p All the best for your run... :)

So, did you buy anything from the Warisan Pertanian market in Putrajaya?

*Anton* said...

Will wait for you to finish your run..... at the dimsum place ya! ^_^ Q-ing up for the table is as tiring as running a marathon too , u know. :P lolz

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

Sam: It will be fun though seriously. But the process is damn suffering, as usual. Nothing comes easy dude.

TZ: Ah, too bad that I'm not staying in condo ler. Can I use my house's staircase to 1st floor, and repeating for 100 times instead? Nothing much to buy at the Taman though, and it was HOT!!

Anton: Dim Sum place? Is there any dim sum place nearby KL Tower? Hm...Marco Polo? Hey, I don't wanna gain weight ler since Twilight said I've grown bigger de.

Ultramonkey: U can always join next year dude. Never too late. Penang for food?

Medie007: Or you can offer yourself also lor since you have the knowledge. But make sure I'm not the "victim" la. Hehe.

LAURENCE: Thanks dude. Yeah, kids are normally cute though provided we don't look at the naughty side of them.

LeuMaS: Ops, then I rather being called uncle lor. :)

Chris: You know what, coz I'm always sitting here during work. So I gotta find something to stretch my muscle. :)

Michi: Wow, you're actually a marathon runner. I'm kind of agreed that it would motivate our mind though. Sure I will take some photos and share with everyone here.
