Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2009

28 JUNE 2009: The 1st Standard Chartered KL Marathon had been held at Dataran Merdeka today. I’ve participated in the 10km run that started at 7am. I woke up at 4am on the day itself to get myself ready and took a light breakfast of cereals and bananas; drove myself to Bukit Jalil LRT station for the bus to Dataran Merdeka just to avoid the traffic jam due to road block around the city. I won’t critic on the event over here though I heard quite a lot of complaints about it. Anyhow, there’re a lot spaces for improvement thatI hope Standard Chartered will do a better job next year from the experience they've got this year.

I’ve tried my very best to complete the 10km run this time in order to break my own personal record. The result can be checked on the official page within 48 hours that I’ll definitely share with you guys once I’ve got it.



If you noticed that I didn’t wear the shirt given, it was because the L size was really oversize and they didn’t allow me to change the shirt size during the goodies collection.

Did you join this marathon? If yes, what is your review on it?

Next run: Siemens Run 2009 (19 July 2009)

Leu: I take it as a motivation to push myself for execising. :)

SK: Haha, actually could fit well into L on last Friday. But after the 2 dance classes on Saturday, I shrinked down 1 size to M. Maybe after another 3 weeks, I can fit into XS lo...

Anton: Tried to make the photo smaller for faster loading lo. I thought it's still viewable? Time to check your eyes perhaps. Yeah, 3 weeks away and you should PRAY more!!!!

Granny Twilight: In fact, I've registered for the Adidas KOTR run lo. But still thinking whether to go for it as I don't have the confident to complete 11km within 50 minutes. Raise your tongkat also couldn't help me unless you can make me fly..hehe.

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

Medie007: It wasn't tough to get the finisher medal as long as you completer within 1hr30min. Wanna try someday?

Danny said...

someone slim down liao huh? cannot wear L size anymore... now switch to the M size land liao...LOL

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

Danny: I think the size of shirt given isn't standard lo. Not that I've slim down that much. But if I don't eat for 3 days, maybe can fit into S size.

Chris said...

Ya lor.. Lazy recently. hehe...

Medie007 said...

i guess so... but depends on the stamina also wat... haven't been doing any cardio for a while. scare pengsan halfway. lmao.

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

Chris: Hm...you have too many activities la. Always busy lo.

Medie007: Yeah, need some training though it's only 10km. But I thought you do gym always? Should be OK lo then..:)

the happy go lucky one said...

sounds like a great experience wor! my sg fren did mention abt few shortcomings abt the organiser, hopefully they can improve next year :)
and he said the medal for full marathon and 10km one look the same for the front side, so im thinking to join next year to get the medal :P kekeee

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

the happy go lucky one: I joined the Spore Standard Chartered run 2 years back and it was really wall organized. And it isn't fair to compare ours with them as this was the 1st time in Msia. The medals look the same? Hm..not aware of that though. You really have to join next year to experience it. :)

Twilight Zone said...

LOL Anton.... Now I am worried pula about myself.

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

Granny Twilight: No worries since you have your personal ambulance ready!!! Let me know if you need a personal nurse ya...hehe.

the happy go lucky one said...

yeah he also awared of tat, so his comments were quite forgiving actually, not harsh at all. according to him one side same one different, he ran the full marathon though. me too old liao, have to really train up again before committe into this :P

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

the happy go lucky one: Wow, your friend is real GOOD!!! I always salute those who ran full marathon, as I think I'll never able to do it. Haha, another year for you to train yourself.
