|Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2014|
If you ask me to choose between running and swimming, I will definitely go for swimming because it is more comfortable and relaxing for me instead of panting for breath after a run haha. My lovely girlfriend love to run so I accompanied her to Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2014 the other day. Seriously, I find it difficult to wake up early in the morning at 5am just to go for a morning run. But well it is once a year to witness this huge KL marathon in the beautiful heart of Malaysia.
I was planning to take photos for girlfriend and friends at the finish line but in the end I think I took more street shoots and shoot something different this time (real excuse is because I didn't manage to spot them at the finish line hahaha)
We decided to take the LRT from Bukit Jalil to prevent traffic jam in the KL City. So it was rare to see all the green monsters gathered together heading toward the same place. The train get even more packed when we getting nearer to the destination.
Taking a short rest, yawning, talking with friends happening inside the same train. The only difference between them are the colorful running shoes haha
|Selfie with gf and friends~ All wear striking color shirt so easy to spot each other after the run|

|Super packed on a weekend. People walking around and waiting for their turn|
|Voice of Percussion: Drums are one great motivator during the marathon. After all it is the beats that move us|

One of the kid noticed me taking their photo and said "Dad, that guy took our photo just now". I walked away because I don't wanna have this photo deleted from my camera. But I guess the right way is still to show them the photos and ask if it is okay for me to keep it. Anyhow kids, if you are reading this and wanna have this photo removed, let me know yo.
I think local people are more friendly in having their photos taken than people who came from oversea, especially children were being taught to inform parents if their photo were being taken without any permission.
That's actually one fun thing to learn from Street Photography, the actual way is to approach strangers and ask if they allow their photos being taken and even being shared online. I've met many who reluctant but I met even more people who love to have their photos taken and I email them the photos as a gift. If you are doing it right, you could be the next Sartorialist who documnt down nice photos on the street.

I find that there are many runners with outstanding running outfit so here are some photos taken near the finish line.
