Nike City 10K 2010

I ran another 10km marathon in the Nike City 10K 2010 on 10th October 2010 (10/10/10).

This would be my fourth 10km marathon. My previous runs were KL Marathon 2010KL Marathon 2009 and Singapore Marathon 2009.

Sea of neon green at the carnival area.

The run seemed easier than any other race I’ve participated. Most probably due to the flat route (mostly).

I do enjoyed the route more than Standard Chartered one. It was particularly interesting when we ran pass Jalan Bukit Bintang, Jalan Sultan Ismail and Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH).

My official timing is 01:24:08, 3 minutes slowly than my previous run. Considering I did not have any, I repeat, ANY training prior the race, I am quite happy with the result.

But this time, instead of getting a medal or certificate, all we got is a toy as you can see from the picture below.

Me, Sophea and Ted with our finisher "toy".

Seriously, a toy. It doesn’t even sing!

Well, the most interesting part about this run is probably the official t-shirt. As you might have already notice in all the pictures above, all of us had to wear this freaking bright neon green t-shirt!

Runners on AKLEH.

If you see from far, you might have thought that maybe Sony is shooting another commercial for Bravia TV.

But this time, instead of using colour balls;

They used tennis balls.

LOL, tennis balls? I sure look like one with my beer belly.

Good run but lousy award. Not only it doesn’t sing, it doesn’t even move.

Cheapskate!
