Shape & Men's Health Run 2008

What? Shape/ Men's Health Run 2008

Where? Lake Garden, Kuala Lumpur

When? Sunday. 24 August 2008. 7:30am.

How Long? 10km

Who? Organised by Blu Inc Magazine.

Not much of write up this time. Let the pictures do the talking. :)

The glowing Nike Lunar Trainers. Exclusively brought to you by the generous people at Nike. :) This is my second time I ran in them before I wear them in the Nike Human Race next weekend.

I have to step with extra caution not to get these white babies stepped on, especially during the start where everybody is jostling to get in front.

What's going on here? A facial before the race? Interesting....

For the first time in my life, I got a facial before a race!

Seen here is Uncle Boey getting his face toned and mositurised by Lab Series. They also put some eye cream for you. Wow!...Men also like to look pretty for the race, kah? LOL!

Checking out Naturale Choice snack counter.

Mushroom snack. No..these are not magic mushroom. They are wasabi flavoured mushroom. It tasted quite nice actually. When I come back for more after the race, they were all gone.

Get your foot and shoes sprayed. If you want, you can spray your armpits too. :) Facial and then a deodorising session. No more smellies on the road.

Warm up session by Celebrity Fitness.

Sham & Jojo on the stage.

Gorgeous Jojo Struys. Managed to take a picture with her. She was so obliging. Thanks Jojo!

The start point. Wow! The response for the run was so good that the entry was closed way before the raceday.

Some cheers before the blast off!

The run started by a loop around the Lake Garden before going out into the actual road. The morning was sunny and beautiful.

Being overtaken by C-cube while I was busy taking picture of the lake.

Going up the hilly parts of the run.

Healthy Men and Shapely Women in action. :)

Water station. Two along the route but understaff. Runners waited to be served. Some runners even have to pour their own water.

Check point peach coloured ribbon.

The parliament stretch.

Swaggering towards the finish line...

Urgh! Lots of people queuing for the goodies bag. Could've been better managed. Suggest more counters. Or collection done before raceday.

Yuck! The ground at the goodie bag collection is very muddy. There goes my white Lunar Trainer!

Yum! Breakfast from 1901 Hot Dog.

Play spin the wheel and win small prizes. First you gotta have your feet, shoes and body sprayed with Adidas deodorant.

Check out my cool tattoo. :)'s sprayed on. Heheh!

Congrats to Guna for beating the ladies in the "lat-tali-lat-tam-plom" game. Guna won a Philips DVD player! Cool, eh?

Overall, I give this run two thumbs up! Praises for the well organised race. Traffic control is good. Loved the carnival like atmosphere. Enjoyed the sponsors booths tremendously. And the goodies? Fantastic!!!!!!
