  5. On that note, I do agree that I feel fortunate that our government is able to make swift decisions to procure vaccines and we are now ahead of other countries to get ourselves vaccinated. The frontliners are now getting vaccination first, and I believe a more widespread public education of vaccination should kick in soon to inform the public on the pros and risks so that we can make our own informed decision. Regarding the Olympics on the other thread, I guess Japan is in a difficult position as they have already committed massively (financially especially) on it and this will amass to a
  6. In any case, at least Singapore is procuring vaccines from countries who are transparent with their data. While I agree there's some risk (as with all vaccines), at least you and your doctor can make an informed decision for yourselves based on the best knowledge that the doctors. scientists and researchers of these manufacturers are aware of. As for us over here, if we (ever) do get a vaccine, it seems we'll be forced* to accept one from shady manufacturers that have repeatedly withheld, or distorted their third stage clinical trial data. I know COVID's (practically) non existent th
  7. What's up everyone? I'll be doing a few virtual races myself (only the free ones) for this year, just for the heck of it, although I presume it would be safe to consider a real race somewhere near the end of 2022? (SCSM2022?) That will mean my theoretical maximum heart rate will be slower by 2 then (minus 2 years) but that's life LOL. I've been reading up on news in Japan, and the way things are over there, I think the (already postponed) 2020 Olympics are really doomed. They'd be crazy to push through with it. I should've gotten one of those Tokyo 2020 Olympics promotional shi

  10. let uncle share another list "lobangs"... in late 2020, most of Run in-place marathon events were cancelled, and hence there were "virtual events" that was held in late 2020 or some that is going to be held in present (2021)... Present (2021)... so the organizer recommends... uncle submitted GPS-42K for evidence (Dead Sea Marathon) expect by mail... wow..not bad..so uncle explored in recent days...any more "lobang"..Enter more events.. Past 2020...Verona Marathon - Trilogy (Nov 2020), Italy (cancelled) so the organizer rec
  11. @kohpapa Go for it Uncle! Do share your run route for your kyoto marathon!
  12. uncle represented Singapore as International Paricipant with these submissions... as well as submission of GPS data [21KM] as evidence... looking forward to receiving from Siberia... sport hat, face shield and finisher's medal.. uncle's overseas virtual races "lobang"... of course, this weekend...Kyoto Marathon 2021... uncle registered as "local resident"... and entered for this race... again this "lobang" was announced in dec 2020.. that is good.... a goal setting right from the start of 2021 and chiong for it
  13. I saw Soh running into bedok reservoir park yesterday. Gave him a shout-out. I feel he remains quite a humble guy despite his athletic achievements.
  14. Earlier
  15. i didnt manage to see the brand cause his legs were moving and i was driving... only seen his face...
  16. quite a lot of things... so let me paste them all here... PRIZES PRIZES SG PODIUM FINISHERS – RED DOT RUNNING COMPANY 1. Sunday Shades 12 pairs 2. Steigen Socks 12 pairs 3. Starbalm Packs 1st Prize 1x Warm Stick 2x Hand Sanitizer 2x Inhaler 4x Gel Sachets 1x Sports Towel 1x Blue Sports Bottle 2nd Prize: 1x Warm Gel 1x Cold Gel 1x Warm Stick 2x Hand Sanitizer 2x Inhaler 4x Gel Sachets 1x Sports Towel 1x Blue Sports Bottle
  17. that is good.... a goal setting right from the start of 2021 and chiong for it...
  18. maybe from uncle's perspectives on virtual events (locally and globally)... yes, must agree with @beast, this Virtual Event is very much for those who are newbie runners (who may want to upgrade from brisk walk to run)...21KM in 1 month (very generous)...depends on individuals... given that the race is virtual, again agree with @beast, the organizer must bear the cost (inclusive as participation fee)...if this is covid-19 social distancing measures, participants have the rights to have "items as specified to be delivered"... and if the shipping cost (add-on) is not preferred, it is a
  19. I feel that the 1 month to complete to complete each leg is too generous. I know this is probably more for those who had not been running regularly to encourage them to run more, but just needing to clock 5km a week is a really setting a very low bar. If the event sees good number of sign ups, I hope they will come up with another edition with a tighter requirement. 7km routes are quite eay to carve out. They mention "routes" so I suppose it will be more than one, probably one every region. My guess is possibly one in the city (Maybe The Promontory to Marina Barrage and back) and on
  20. Yes, the price is very reasonable. I paid only $13.5 since i have passion card. What is attractive about this race, at least to me, is that it spreads across 3 mths and recommend the type of runs to be done. I will be keen to know what is the route they will be suggesting for the 3rd leg.
  21. Thanks for sharing! $15 sounds very worth it considering all the stuff you will be getting. Only drawback is you have to visit their stores twice, once to collect your race pack and then your finisher pack after that.
  22. Registration closes: 28 February 2021 Event period – Leg 1: 1 – 31 March 2021 – Leg 2: 1 – 30 April 2021 – Leg 3: 1 – 15 May 2021 Upload closes: 15 May 2021 Link: https://connect.justrunlah.com/decathlon-virtual-run-2021/
  23. According to a reply reported with the similar question... Current timeline in Covid-19 worldwide...Vaccination... Vaccine isn't a cure... it is just to prepare your body to manufacture the necessary antibodies to combat covid... Side effects... it may take "doses" to really to say we are Covid-19 "free", but really?!? Even though virtual runs may not be the most preferred option, virtual runs provide runners a choice to get their runs done... well said, let's say 2021 may still be a year when run-in place race may still have postponed or even cance
  24. uncle did not take part in this... don't really like the wet, muddy and soggy MacRitchie Trail (a must venue for participation) Run..."soil and spoil" shoes fast...especially in year-end wet season winners - registered Free (if they are on Leaderboard Ranked can win prizes)... unless pay add-ons - Medals, Finisher Tees.. otherwise...all pay with Race Pack Bundles... https://hksg.run/overview/ ...FYI for those who are Podium Winners...prizes
  25. Yes, Run Locally, but "Race Virtual" Globally... Joyrun (app) monthly report card on uncle's running statistics... and at TATTA app..January 2021 Leaderboard... you can see there are lots of Japanese uncles and aunties here... new motivated resolution and challenge for 2021...to be monthly top 500 @ TATTA... so uncle's new game plan is to chong more "FM"s to beat more Japanese uncles and aunties...lol

Regarding the Olympics on the other thread, I guess Japan is in a difficult position as they have already committed massively (financially especially) on it and this will amass to a sizeable economic loss for them if they can't eventually hold it. So it is a must go for them to cut their losses, even if it means less tourism dollars from those who are here to support the event.
    • In any case, at least Singapore is procuring vaccines from countries who are transparent with their data. While I agree there's some risk (as with all vaccines), at least you and your doctor can make an informed decision for yourselves based on the best knowledge that the doctors. scientists and researchers of these manufacturers are aware of.

I know COVID's (practically) non existent there in Singapore, so it doesn't seem that urgent, but as far as a decent vaccine for this plague is concerned, I think you guys should consider yourself fortunate. I'm certain a lot of people elsewhere would gladly get in line in your place there if Singaporeans don't want it.  😇   *it's an open secret here that they've already bought off the major decision makers in that aspect.

I should've gotten one of those Tokyo 2020 Olympics promotional shirts they were selling when I was there in the months before the pandemic - it would've made a good conversation piece someday 😜
