MPIB Run 2014 – Running Clinics

The MPIB Run is a well-run 8km and 12km event, on a very hilly course, which in 2013 gave out some great prizes including New Balance vouchers, Sworke sunglasses, cases of isotonic drinks and very shiny trophies. Trophies and New Balance vouchers will once again be awarded to next year’s Top-10 finishers in each category. The countdown – only 79 days! – has already begun for the 2014 event on January 5 and the organisers are providing Saturday morning running clinics aimed specifically at people who are new to running. Here’s the info: For details: MPIB Run 2014 I really … Continue reading MPIB Run 2014 – Running Clinics

Great Eastern Live Great Run – Race Kit Collection

Race Kit collection for the Live Great Run 2013 started this morning. There are plenty of staff manning the desks and several vendors selling race-related goods. Not that I’m in the line for any more water bottles or running belts this week! Unfortunately, this year’s t-shirt has capped short sleeves so I will probably wear the sleeveless top from last year. It’s a nice design, with slimming white panels on the sides, but I really can’t run in a t-shirt in KL’s hot and humid weather. Hell, I barely ever wear a t-shirt with sleeves when NOT running. I won’t … Continue reading Great Eastern Live Great Run – Race Kit Collection

BSN Putrajaya Marathon

  There are only eight days left to register for the BSN Putrajaya Half Marathon and 10 km races on the night of Oct 19th. Sorry if you were hoping to do the marathon-all the spots have been taken. It’s a great event, very well run, on a relatively flat, spacious course. Last year I won 400rm, which really sweetened the experience of competing my first 21 km race. Here’s the link for revisit ion and information. http://home.hooha.asia/bsnpnm-2013.aspx. Continue reading BSN Putrajaya Marathon

Live Great Run

It’s not too late to register for the Great Eastern Live Great Run! Date     :      4 November 2012, Sunday Time     :      7am Venue  :      Menara MATRADE, Kuala Lumpur It’s a 12km with a few obstacles. There’s also a 3 km which seems to require the sharing of a t-shirt with another person while running in a bid to ‘build meaningful relationships with the ones you love’. Well my husband is a foot taller than me so 3 km stuck to him while running would not make for harmonious relations, that’s for sure. But each to their … Continue reading Live Great Run

Adidas King of the Road

No, I didn’t do it. I didn’t register in time because I was still humming and hawing over how I’d manage to get up and out to Sunway in time to start at 6.50 AM race. I need to eat a good breakfast and have a couple of coffees before I can run in the morning so for an early race that is an hour’s drive away I reckon I’d have to be up at the latest at 4.30 AM. Not ideal for my first morning race. I’m also a very poor sleeper so a 4.30 AM start would pretty … Continue reading Adidas King of the Road
