So i signed up for this Men's Health Shape night run, just the perfect distance and fulfilled 2 other 'run-thing to do' in my list, which is to join a night run event and to run in putrajaya, a nicely built modern township built by the malaysian govt.
On the way there, rain was pouring cats amd dogs but as we got nearer i saw a stray of sunlight which was enough for me to give a hope that i wont be running under a strong shower! (Only later that i knew if there was lightning sighted they would have to cancel the event).
Hubby n kiddo dropped me off, n i hitchhiked home on a friend's car.
What i liked:
+ weather was awesome after the rain, made the run feel light. I improved my 10k pb by abt 10mins i think! Now its 72 mins :)
+ nice area not too many cars for lots of runners to run
+ organized event overall, large start/finishing area, lots of toilet etc
+ awesome goody bag n lots of sponsorship tents. Sketcher had a 20% discount shoe booth. Juice, yoghurt etc
Just a bit of areas of improvement:
-: so many long queues in the free goody tents. I decided to skip all of them ss drizxle was getting stronger too,
-: they gave away so many things right after the run but with no bag yet, i dropped my stuff a few times as couldnt mana. Wish they gave a bag earlier.
-: i think their 11th k mark was pretty displaced. Since it felt such a long way to get there!
But overall it was a great experience, love it! I came in 300+th runner out of 12k women, n since the medals were limited to first 500 i was kinda pushing myself to get it hehehe.
