There are also many schools, shops, banks, eateries, hotels and large hypermarkets. Running past these tall buildings in the early morning can be a productive mental escape.

For example, slurping nice Teh Tarik (milk tea) with cheese tosai at Section 7, munching Ikan Bakar (grilled fish) at Medan Selera at Section 2, or pampering yourself a refreshing Cendol. At Shah Alam, when it’s time for carbo-loading, you should share your running experience over a table of good local food!
