Follow the Ultra Marathon Man's Journey

Karno is attempting to run 50 marathons in 50 States in 50 days - a marathon a day for 50 days. Follow his journey here. I think it's not a problem for him. Fully intending to run no less than 10K this morn, I braved it out of the door and was immediately confronted with the haze too thick to run. Since I was already up, I drove to the Bukit Aman car park and my partner was already there in his car. No one else was there except for the 6am group who have already taken to the roads. A while later another runner arrived and we decided that we better call it off - the air quality didn't improve as I drove down to KL and it certainly smelled a bit. Instead we adjourned for breakfast at the Pudu Chinese Village. Arriving home, I cleaned the whole house, upstairs and downstairs (vacuumed, mopped and scrubbed the bathrooms). My eyes have been itching for the past 3 days. I don't know if it's a coincidence with the haze.

The evening saw a much improved situation. The skies were completely clear - so clear that we saw cloud formations and the contrails of an airliner! What the hell?!

  • Karno's book is inspiring. I'm almost finished it. Oddly, I'm glad he MTB, surfs, and does trailing running not just running, as I am not in love with running, just outdoor challenges. That said, I'll be running up to Genting Casino 1/2 marathon tonight. Steve
