10KM at Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2014

This year, I’ve ran 5KM at the Energizer Night Race and 10KM at the TM Fan Run. Both runs went well, but to me, they were merely “fun runs”.

In fact, Standard Chartered KL Marathon (SCKLM) is THE run that has always been an avenue for me to improve my benchmark. Hence, SCKLM 2014 marks my 3rd participation in 3 consecutive years.

Well, I sure hoped that I was running on a 21KM route – but I wasn’t ready for it. So I signed up for 10KM again this year. However this time, it’s the “Cruise” category¬† – which means runners are required to complete the run within 1 hour 30 minutes.

Punting at Cambridge

During the Great Britain Tour with Expat Explore, our first destination was 80km north of London – Cambridge.

Known as a university town, our one and only traditional adventure upon arriving at Cambridge was punting along River Cam.

Home of the University of Cambridge, it has beautiful scenery and historical buildings to explore and punting is probably the most relaxing way to do so.

7D6N Great Britain Tour with Expat Explore

We Discover, You Explore – The tagline used by Expat Explore, the tour agency we took to explore 3 countries within Great Britain during our recent trip to the UK back in November 2013.

Frankly, I’m not a fan of joining tours while traveling as I prefer to plan an itinerary by myself. But since it was already booked, I just follow lah. ;)

Anyway, it’s a 7D6N tour that travels to cities in England, Scotland and Wales, the 3 countries that make Great Britain a great place to visit. ;)
