Standard Chartered KL Marathon- Last minute tips!

It’s something that KL-ites are more than familiar with, year in year out: the haze. Hazy weather in Kuala Lumpur city of late is making runners like myself wonder if SC will continue with the marathon this year.

Here’s a photo montage of the KL skyline this morning.

Doesn’t look so appetizing eh? So far there are no announcements on postponing or cancelling the event, despite the gloomy climate, so it must be still on. Here’s hoping for better weather come Sunday!

Meanwhile I received this infographics from the PR agency managing the race to share with all of you – check it out for your last minute marathon tips! And all the best if you are running!

Hi! I am Fairy from Petaling Jaya, Malaysia - currently residing in Sydney, Australia. This blog contains write-ups on my fitness adventures, whether it's running, swimming, hiking, Zumba, whatever! If I sweat, I write! As a young adult in my twenties, I led a relatively sedentary lifestyle before I had an awakening in 2011. I was overweight by age 30 and finally decided to turn my life around, so I started to reclaim my health back by losing 20 percent of my then body weight by playing dance and fitness video games! I've not looked back since and now happily lead an active lifestyle. If you want to get in touch with me, please email me at fairy[at] or DM me on Instagram @myindo. Thanks for stopping by!
