KL Marathon...

While my fav F1 driver, kimi, is having his first race this season (and he won! reports here), Viv is in a race too =) Yup, you've guess it, the kl marathon. This is a last minute decision, coz viv are suppose to work at site, but then it was postponed. So, while most of the ppl still in their dreamland, Viv woke up at 4.45 am, freshen up, and waiting for Nigel to come fetch her. Nigel participate in the half marathon, which start earlier, at 6 am. Here is a pix when the half marathon'ers start off.



viv took this pix using her camera phone, so the quality is not really good. but, dataran merdeka in the morning is really nice, the view is spectacular... esp the clock tower against the dark blue sky. Viv took part in the 10km run, which starts at 7am. And guess what, before we start off, the first few full marathon'ers already finish their race (they start earlier at 4.30am)!!!! Its amazing!! Viv is truly impressed. The champion, who is from Kenya, clocked in 2 :17 :38. I heard they run about 18-19km/h non-stop! Results here. Nigel name is inside also, well done, Nigel!

As for Viv, she finished her race within 84min, which is within the time limit allowed (90min), #277 in her category, and got herself a cert and medal =)



This organizer is definitely better than the Subang Jaya run that I participated previously. At least, we have two water stations with *chilled water and 100plus along the 10km course. And thanks to the cheers of some volunteers, policemen and the adidas group (with the impossible is nothing banner), viv actually do run faster, altho she is damn tired ;) Viv is proud of herself today.... and she definitely goin to bed early tonite.... Zzzz...
