6km pre-marathon

As you might already know, I will be run­ning in the KL Marathon this com­ing 28 June.

Before the real marathon, Stan­dard Charted organ­ised a pre-marathon event today at Tech­nol­ogy Park Malaysia, Bukit Jalil.


It was a 6km run around TPM. Sophea and I par­tic­i­pated in the run.

We woke up 6 o’clock in the morn­ing. Still with the blur face.


Around 8 morn­ing after the warm up ses­sion, we were all set and ready to go. Jia you!!!

Sophea and I

The race begun. I run and run. Stop for a while, then run again, then stop again, then run again.

I was try­ing to push myself to the limit. But when I reached around the last kilo­me­tre, I was already exhausted. I started to feel a lit­tle bit dizzy and short of breath. I know I’ve reached my limit. My energy has depleted.

I kept walk­ing slowly until I saw the fin­ish line. Then I started to run with full force for the last few hun­dred metres.

Once I passed by the fin­ish line, I felt good… but extremely exhausted.

Exhauted me

After a few min­utes, Sophea reached the fin­ish line as well.

I didn’t keep track of the time, but it should be around 45 min­utes. Not very good and not very bad as well.

Here comes the inter­est­ing part. Dur­ing the price giv­ing cer­e­mony, sev­eral prices were given out to the top 3 run­ners from dif­fer­ent categories.

When it comes to the exter­nal female cat­e­gory (non Stan­dard Charted staff), the emcee announced, “for exter­nal female cat­e­gory, third place goes to… Sophea Seng!!!”

(drums rolling… CHIANG!!!)

Price giving

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Sophea for win­ning the third place.

Her mouth was wide opened when she heard the announce­ment and for a sec­ond she couldn’t believe that it was her name.

The price was some sports wear vouchers.

After all the prices given out, it’s time to call it a morning.

We were already crav­ing for cof­fee so badly. So we quickly drove to the near­est McD to recharge our caf­feine intake…

…and also to recharge all the fat that we have lost dur­ing the run.

McD breakfast

It was the most deli­cious McD break­fast I’ve ever had.

It was really a good run. I gain a lot of expe­ri­ence this time, and I will put them in good use dur­ing the real marathon.

But before that, I really need more train­ing in order to be able to run the 10km marathon next month.
