Last Sunday was a busy day for me, started my day as early as 5am. Get up, get ready, laced up my adidas BOOST and head over to Sunway Pyramid for adidas King Of The Road 2013 Malaysia run #KOTR2013. This is one of the major run in Malaysia, according to the data about 11,000 runners participated this year.

When I reached Sunway about 530am there were already so many cars, finding a carpark take some time. Takes about 15mins to queuue to go in to the Sunway Pyramid carpark. Lucky I managed to find one spot. Note to self will get be there early or carpool. Even though the day is still early when I reached there I can see huge crowd of passion and determinate runners. Most faces looking energetic and excited at 6am, amazing. They were All In for the Win #KOTR2013.

For this round I didn’t participate in the run but just to cover the run and race. However, I walked a lot, followed the runners a bit and climbed stairs too. Thanks to my adidas Boost gives me the cushioning support and by the end of the run my legs I don’t really feel that tired. For more information and updates please visit adidas Running Facebook Page & Website
