Standard Chartered Marathon 2015 kit collection...

Well, I always likes those major marathons like Standard Chartered and Sundown where there were always lots of exhibition booths selling all kinds of sports apparels, devices and other stuffs. The organiser always held it in bigger place like Expo or Suntec City. I always love to check out the booths and see if there are any good offers , which usually there are. My colleague got an arm-band for $7 only where it was sold at least S10+ outside. I didn't bought many stuffs except two dri-fit sports tees for my kids, where it was only at $3 per tee. I got myself two power bars to be used during the run.

I usually was early to collect my running kit in order to avoid the crowd. And, I was right and lucky that there are only three persons in front me waiting for their turns. I am sure by evenings, especially Friday evening, it will be very crowded. I was there at the Expo around 12pm. Not too bad, it was fast and I got more time to visit the booths.

One of the major booths as well as main sponsor, Adidas

Another pix of the Adidas booth , below and above. It was not really crowded then.


The other booths , the folks are having a good time shopping around.

Yours Truly having some fun taking  picture  at the pacers'  booth
The event will be held this Sunday and as shown in the pic above, I will be doing half-marathon where last year, I did my maiden run for 10 KM at the same event. Well, I will try to improve on my previous Sundown HM timing and try to finish below the 3 hours mark but then, it depends on that day itself, my body conditioning and my mental toughness. I will tell myself to enjoy the run, be patience, take it as a way to relax myself but will motivate myself to do well.

Meanwhile, you guys have a good weekend! :)

    1. SK - yes, they do! In fact, all the big runs do have exhibitions, for folks who are running as well as their friends and spouses to look around while waiting for them to collect the kits.
