Enveloped in Thick Haze

Anxious runners are monitoring the air quality over the last 1 week, fearing the deterioration of the haze situation. Indeed, today has been the worst so far - only 2K visibility in most parts of central Kuala Lumpur.

Some colleagues have already reported some traces of sore throats and with the KL Marathon just 9 days away, I'm thinking of coming out with a contingency plan of wearing a lightweight facial mask on race day. Most of my runner friends are staying away from their runs these few days.

You can be sure that racers from areas not affected by the haze, including those from overseas, will be shocked when they land in KL next week. They will suffer from the choking muck and us KLites will either have fallen ill from breathing the foul air or have adapted to it!
