吉隆坡Standard Chartered马拉松运行

Standard Chartered KL Marathon Run 2012
I won the Standard Chartered KL Marathon register pack from 100 plus! My feeling was quite complicated at that tine as I was happy to get a chance to join but at the same time worry cum nervous cause I never run for marathon before and no one was coming with me.

我在100 plus 赢取了参加 Standard Chartered KL Marathon的机会。 我当时的心情非常复杂,一方面是高兴有机会参与但是同时间却担心及紧张因为我从来没有跑过马拉松以及没有人陪同我参与。


2 days before the marathon, we (my boyfriend accompanies me) came to ETCI to get my register pack. 
马拉松开始前的2天,我们要去ETCI领取我们的参赛包包。

  
 These were many counters set up for marathon runners to collect their register packs!


 There were more than 30 over counters!
  这里大概有超过30多个柜台!
I walked to 10km counter. They scanned my registration form barcode and told me that my register pack already been taken! I told them I never take before, so the Chinese uncle (left in the photo) helped me to ask corporate challenge counter staff as I got the sponsorship from 100plus.
我就随便走去10km柜台 。他们scan我打印出来的表格bar code, 然后告诉我,我的包包已经有人领取了!我就对他们说我从来没拿过,身在不远的一位阿伯见状便帮我询问corporate challenge柜台的工作人员因为我告诉他我是100plus 赞助的参赛者!

This Chinese uncle was a volunteer there to help out for register pack collection. He is 69 years old and retire now! He got me in shock when he told me that he ran for 42km marathon later! I was quite blurred about the marathon starting time and place, so I inquired him about everything, he explained to me one by one! I was lucky to meet such a nice and helpful man!
这个华人阿伯是个自愿工作者,他是来那边帮忙我们领取包包。 他今年69岁以及退休了!当他告诉我他要跑42km马拉松时,真的吓了我一跳!对于这次马拉松的一切,我都很模糊包括起跑点以及时间,(之前上忙查看时,显示的资料都是2011年的),所以我就问他所有一切,他都足一跟我解释清楚。我感到非常幸运因为能够遇到一位好心以及乐于助人的陌生人!

                                                               Finally I got my register pack!
                                                              终于我拿到我的参赛包包啦!

I had insomnia the whole night before the marathon. I wake up at 4am and went out at 4.50am to rush for the rapidkl shuttle bus (sewa khas) to Dataran Merdeka!
比赛前一晚我都是失眠。4点凌晨起身,4.50 出门赶最后一辆rapidkl巴士去独立广场!

By the time we got on the bus, there was many runners inside too! After 5 minutes, the bus moved on!
 当我们上巴士时,里面都坐满了参赛者。过了5分钟,巴士就开了!

We reached there at 6am! We had an opportunity to watch half marathon (21km) runners started their race!
我们6点抵达!我们刚好有机会 看到半马拉松的参赛者开始行跑咯!

My turn was at 8am thus I decided to get a rest at ETCI there. I did some warm up exercise so that my muscle would not cramp halfway during the race! I was quite nervous because I stopped jogging for almost 2 years and I just practiced to jog for 2 km day before the event.
我的开跑时间是8点早上,所以我就决定去ETCI休息下。我做了一些热身运动以便在半路时脚不会抽筋 。我很紧张因为我2年多没有跑步了,赛前的1天我才练了2km!

I walked to the starting point which was Padang Merbok (National Monument)from ETCI at 7.15am. Along the way, I saw there was mobile toilets,water station and medical aids for runners!A big signboard was put at the roadside to notify the runners.
7.15早上,我就独自从ETCI走去国家纪念碑附近。路程中,我看到当局有准备临时厕所,水站以及医疗人员在旁候命。路边还摆着大大个的路牌提醒参赛者。




 At 8am, I started my 10km run with others! I took some photos along the way using my hand phone.We passed through KL central station, Brickfield, KL railway station, Masjid Negara, Taman Burung, Jalan Raja Laut and finally we managed to finish the run!I did not cheat during the run!

在8点,我开跑了!我也用手机拍了一些照片。我们一路上经过 KL central station, Brickfield, KL railway station, Masjid Negara, Taman Burung, Jalan Raja Laut,终于我们也顺利完成了!照片不能作假,我可是有完成10 km的咯!
 It was pretty hard to run with a bunch of participants. There were always someone who blocked your way when you want to speed up. So, I just managed to walk fast as after I stopped for people in front who blocking my way, it was hard for me to start up again. Along the way, I just walked as fast as I could!

其实跟一大堆人一起跑是有点困难。当你要跑快的时候,总有人挡在你前面,不是一两个,而是很多。所以,我只能走快因为当我停下来(有人档着我),要从新再抬脚跑是很困难的!在路上,我是尽可能以最快的速度来走快快!



This was the finishing point for all categories (full marathon, half marathon, 10km run and 5km run). The duration for each category was shown at the digital board!
这是所有比赛的终点。每个组别的时间都有显示在电子表上!

 Did you notice the red line at the floor? That was the high technology system to track everyone speed/time for those wearing bib number on shirt! So if you want to have a record of own speed, you must step on the red line before the race and after the race. After the race, we can browse the organizer's website to download our own recorded time.
你有看到地上的红线吗?那个是一个高科技的系统来记录每一个人的速度以及时间,前提是你必须穿着有b-tag的bib number在衣服上。如果你是要记录自己真正的时间,就要在赛前和赛后踏上去。比赛后,我们可以游览主办单位的网页去下载我们的时间记录。
 

 I met my form 6 friend, Li Shan just after I finished the race! She just came after me! I met 2 friends, Li Shan and Pooi San, both also my form 6 class mate. However, I did not manage to take any photo with Pooi San before the race. 
赛后,我遇到丽姗,我中六的同学!他随后才抵达。我遇到2位中六同学,一位是丽姗,另一位是佩珊,不过我在赛前没有与他拍照留念。

 I made it! I used about 1 hour 45 min to finish the race just by walking! 
我终于跑完了!我大概用了1个小时45分钟来走!
 

This was the medal for 10km finisher! Nice right?
                                                                            这是我的奖牌!

Every 10km runner was given a bottle of fruit drink from F&N!
每个10km参赛者都有一瓶F&N 给的果汁!

There were some booths in Dataran Merdeka selling goods. I saw many people lined up at 100 plus booth
because everyone can get a self-portrait 100plus can with RM5. Interesting right?!
在独立广场也有设立一些摊位!我看到很多人排队在100 plus 摊位前,原来每个人都可以以RM5就可以获得有自己肖像的100 plus罐子。有趣吧?!

My leg was in pain after the race for 2 whole day. Now, the pain is lesser (third day after marathon)
跑完后,脚连续痛了2天。今天终于没有那么痛了。
