SCKLM 2015 REAL PEOPLE SERIES: The Century Marathoner
Introduction: During the past and current 7 Editions of the Standard Chartered Kuala Lumpur Marathon (SCKLM), as many as 150,000 runners have taken part in KL’s premier marathon in all categories. Due to SCKLM’s broad appeal, the participating runners come from all walks of life, young and old, fast or slow, novices to elite runners, from near and far descend upon Dataran Merdeka en masse once-a-year to run in our majestic capital KL.
In my “SCKLM 2015 Real People Series”, I talk to individual runners who will run in SCKLM 2015 and find-out from them, what running in SCKLM 2015 means to them. I hope that you will find their stories & revelations as inspiring to you as they are to me.
Yim Heng Fatt, The Century Marathoner
It gives me great pleasure to share with you, Yim’s personal SCKLM STORY based on our interview recently :-
1) When did you start running?
I started running in 2009 as a form of exercise to lose weight and to keep fit.
2) Why do you like running?
Well there are many benefits of running from being healthy active. It also helps forge friendship and fellowship between running friends too. Best of all running is just plain fun and not something overly difficult to start with.
3) How many times have you run SCKLM?
Including this SCKLM 2015, it will be my 5th time.
4) Why did you choose SCKLM as your FM number 100?
SCKLM 2015 will not be my 100th. It will be my 103rd Full Marathon. So maybe this question is not appropriate.
5) What is your profession? Your Age?
I am an IT Manager and I am sweet 45 this year.
