It was my first experience 10 km running and I did it until finish line. I did 10 km running after my first 5 km running just one week before. The registration for the race was online at

The running was held on Sunday, 16 June 2013. I arrived in Bali airport on Saturday, 15 June 2013 using Citilink flight from Jakarta. It was nice airline with new fleet Airbus A320.

There are some ladies from race committee welcomed you at the airport and we could took picture with them and holding sign "welcome runner". I tried taking picture with them. They  also gave me rundown schedule.

Racing kit had to be taken in Nusa Dua. There was carbo dinner in Nusa Dua but not for free. Luckily I have cousin who live in Bali. She helped me to take racing kit. Then, I went directly to the hotel at Kuta Centrak Park Hotel. I booked the hotel two days before the race from and got the good price. The hotel is nice and clean. I like the swimming pool.

At night i met with my cousin, her husband and their baby. I had been more than 15 years since the last time i met her. She brought me racing kit that contains t-shirt, bib numbers and some souvenirs from sponsors Before sleeping, I went to Giant grocery store. It just walking distance from the hotel. I bought some snacks, fruits and cookies, just in case I got starving at mid night.
