Back To Basic Run

Pacesetter Back to Basic Run. Sep 8th, 2013. Min run 10km, max 30km or run as much as you can within the permitted 4.5hours.

No need to be kiasu though. This wasn't a race. It's just an organised LSD that you paid to enter. At the end of the run, runners get their medal and t-shirt. No frills, no hooha because the main focus is to RUN! To prepare for the upcoming Standard Chartered KL Marathon which is only 3 weeks away. *gasp* I am so not ready to tackle another half-marathon this time! @.@

There wasn't an official starting time, runners can start running from 5.30am till 11.00am, though the last advisable starting time was 6.30am. We arrived after the flag-off, parked our car like 3km away from the starting point and walked around before making our way to the starting point. Bumped into a lot of familiar faces who had already started their run way earlier.
Like Bro Fuad and also Uncle Oliver. Both an inspiration. ^^
This crazy fella did 34km! o.O
Awesome training, Neoh!
While I run, Zaini found a spot just after a climb and proceeded to take photo of runner friends. :-)
The venue at MAEPS, MARDI Serdang was very nice. Very picturesque. Rolling hills! A totally awesome place to run. I hope there are more running events to be held here in the future.

I was happy that even after not running for ages, I managed to tackle all the hill section without stopping for walk breaks though I did run very very slowly and at certain points, I ran of the grassy area because it was softer.

We kinda did a relay running that day. I didn't want to do much running but it was a pity to go home so early, so after I finished my run; Zaini took my bib and ran. Sorry organizer!
While he was away, it was my turn to ge behind the lens and pretend be a paparazzi pulak.

And of course, when all of us had finished, time for more photos. And makan. Tau foo fa. Hot Hot Hot and very sweet tau foo fa. Nasi lemak. Watermelons.
 Zaini finishing up, goofing around too. Nice puffy face! xD
One for the family album, with the famous Tey. Tey gave some great advice on running too. Thanks Tey! ^^

    1. You're definitely a cut above the rest, Tey. Your selfless act through any runs along with your photos taking inspire many runners.

      It's always a joy to run a race and see you. :-)

  7. i've seen this abbreviation LSD so many times, and i remember you have explained it before, yet it's still so "running technical" to me that i kept forgetting what it is.. hahaha!!

    and being SK, i again get my good friend Google to help.. ooopsss, Long Slow Distance, ah yes!! that it is~~ :D

    Replies
    1. Ah Boy good boy. Made the effort to google. Yeah, when runners talk about LSD, they're talking about ling, slow distance running and not about drugs.;-)

      Delete
    2. i always go google for information when i want to know something lah.. it's just on our fingertips so why not?? not all the time need to ask people right if we can do it.. :)

      Delete
    3. Ah boy is good.

      some people rather demand for info than look for it themselves.

    2. We ran on those two-way roads la. It's organized so of course the organiser won't make us run in small roads.;-)

      Wah! How far you parked Meow? But then, some parking area there are quite far la...

    Seronok dapat tengok kak Lina kembali aktif dalam bidang larian... PF free finally... Hopefully it will stay away much2 longer...

    Have fun running McD Olympic Run with Zaini n Raimie ok... Oh, kenapa muka Raimie ada lebam kat pipi tuh? Terjatuh ke? Poor Raimie...

    1. Raimie is a boy. Needs to be tough.Come to think of it, girls pun better tough. Perfectly normal to have bruises n scratches. :-D

      Delete
    2. Yes indeed, having bruises is ok... As long as there's no permanent scar on his face.. Boys and girls need to be toughen up equally... Dah bole masuk RMC nanti lah nih... =P

      Delete
    3. I don't really mean having bruises is ok, per se but kids being kids... It's kinda part and parcel of life. You have to experience to learn.

    4. Absolutely true... I fell down once on a rusted zinc roof and had a cut above my left knee and was rushed to the nearest hospital by my aunt n uncle... And I end up with a wide stitches... Ni lah padah nya main kejar2 kucing with my cousins when I was a little kid... ;D
