Hong Kong Marathon @ 5 Feb

despite there's two more weeks to go, we're already getting excited over it already now. you, yes, the one reading my blog now, will i be seeing you there ??? weather are expected to be cold on said date thus don't forget to get yourself a pair of disposal gloves and disposal rain coat. you can get a reasonable good one at Daiso, the $5 ringgit shop...

this will be my 3rd time running said event. first time was in year 2010, which is also the first year the organiser gave out finishing medal to all full marathoners' finisher. yeap, all previous year they only gave participants a souvenir memento. local Hongkie find the weather for said year hot though for me it was just nice...

second time was last year 2011 where i ran with Carrie and she got her PB. this year, she will challenge herself to do a sub-5. hopefully i'm ready and fit enough to run along side with her all the way to achieve it. we also manage to register to run under PolyU running group where a additional Nike t-shirt will be given to us and some goodies at the end, weeezzzz :)

comparison on the flight plus lodging cost (for 2 pax), last year trip was 5 days 4 night via AisAsiaGo and it cost us RM$3026. this year, we cut down 1 day to 4 days 3 nights and booked it via MasHoliday, cost us this time RM$2602. a good deal if you ask me coz we're flying via MAS, and the main reason we're cutting the 1 day is so that we don't have to apply for leave from work. depart on Sat 4 Feb and return on Tue 7 Feb. Both 6 Feb (Mon) and 7 Feb (Tue) is a public holiday. this way we can save our annual leave for other overseas run :)
