Brooks Shoes And Brooks Half Marathons

Two of them, as a matter of fact.

I went to the Curve on Saturday to collect a pair of shoes that I won with the "Blog with Brooks" and helped a friend to collect his too as he was away, running a race in Singapore.
Winners with Brooks representative. Three lucky bloggers won the Transcend model. That's a RM759.00 a pair shoes! Lucky fellas.
Me and my (much cheaper) Pure Flow 3 shoes that I won. Still happy. I like Brooks' Pure Project range. 

But dang! Gonna be hard to match the shoes with my outfit! LOL
Me and Andy, from Brooks Malaysia. Such a leng-chai, hor? hehehe Me? I looked like I just finished shopping with those two bags of shoes, right? 

The prize-giving was done on March 1st, which was also the day of REPC for Brooks Half-Marathon in Bukit Jalil which will be held on Mar 9th.
Quite a subdued crowd so race kit collection was a breeze, I guess. Maybe the crowd will pick up on Sunday?

I didn't sign-up for the race because of the prohibitively high fees so I just went kaypoh at the "expo" area looking at stuff that were sold.
Zaini came after work and we went and kaypohed again. He met a few familiar faces while I went around snapping photos. 
There's also a registration counter open for Brooks Kuantan Half-Marathon. Registration for the event/race is still open and the race will be held on May 11th. 

There aren't that many races in the East Coast so if you are looking for a panoramic race in Pahang, why not try this half-marathon? After run, can relax by the beach there. ^^

I was tempted to join as it'll be held in my home state, Pahang but I've already registered for the Kuala Kangsar Run (which I probably DNS anyway). I know a couple of friends joining this event. Wish I can... but no $$$ to fork out to go for a holiday run there. huk huk huk

Whoever is going... I am so JEALOUS!

  1. wah, finally Mak Glam was there to collect her shoes!! fuyoh, Pure Flow 3, eksyen lah!! and got one leng chai she met and took photo with (before Zaini arrived and saw it), hehe!!

    so that RM759 Transcend model is the orangy one, held by the gentleman and the lady next to you?? so where was another pair?? your blue Pure Flow 3 also nice mah.. free one sure nice lah, haha~~

    aiyoh, so nice can kaypoh kaypoh around at those registration counter, and good for Zaini to bump into his friends lah..

    so really not making a second consideration for the Kuantan run?? eih, just treat it as a family outing while you take the opportunity to run, rather than purposely for the run while you have the chance for a family outing lah.. put it that way, then the purpose is different and you have a valid reason right?? :p

  7. Now after reading this post, I am very keen to drop by this outlet to see the Brooks collections again in more detail. The Penang Hill hike during CNY gave me 2 black toes, no thanks to the bad experience & shoes. Anyway, I was conned into hiking when the ladies told me it was just a spin around Botanical Gardens to see monyet in action! Muahahahaha

    1. Brooks got a few outlets. One in Sunway, one at 328 in PJ, One at Curve. Can also buy Brooks shoes at Gardens Mall. You can actually ask them to bring shoes and try them at your home one, you know...

  9. I have to agree, the race fees for Brooks is simply exorbitant for a half marathon.

    Congrats on your win. Using the shoe for MWM?

    1. Isn't it? It's almost the same as a Full Marathon fees, if not more! @.@

      Nah, I'm sticking with my trustee red shoes for MWM.

      Maybe an Fm later in the year, once I got myself comfy in it ;)
