  1. Brooks is distributed by KPI. Just look out for the REPC organised by Pink Apple and there's a 60-70% chance that KPI will be there to set up booth. Most of the times they will be selling Brooks shoe. You can also buy them from KPI stores and WOS stores. The past season at WOS is also quite attractive during sales times. So may want to keep an eye for sales time.There's a 50% WOS sale today, for the New Year. can also try KPI factory outlet at IMM
  2. Thanks. Useful info / tips from pro, esp the part on overhydration and carbo-loading.
  3. runner ... running beside you ... strike conversation ??? run lah ... talk so much comes the reply then u know LOL but what's the motive behind the wristband ??? knowing the runners from which area of SG ... why they wanna have a competition based on zones ? or they wanna attract heartlanders enthusiasm ? just reroute the routes to various hearltands ... taking turns each year since it's not possible to cover all in one race ... but knowing them, it'll only happen if they have to salvage this event due to dwindling numbers .... engraving for first 200 runners ... how many non-elite class FM even stand a chance ??? like this : just reroute the routes to various hearltands ... taking turns each year since it's not possible to cover all in one race ...
  4. Are the runs (with the pacers) starting from the adidas stores free for all, or only for registered runners?
  5. Or rather adidas paid for it? Both this yr's SCMS and Haile are sponsored by adidas..
  6. What ??? I don't understand at all but it seems that organizer is trying best effort to push away the late sign up ppl (like me)... Why a extra $15 ??? It should be the other way round??? Maybe i can't see the big picture or they are really trying to cut down the number of runners.... Or it is just a re-wording of late period registration / normal /early bird ?? Anyway it is very bad wording if that is the case.. Nvm... I don't think i will sign up liao... Will see how my mood and get a second hand bib if feel like tooo... Maybe this will b the first year which i skip SCM since signing up annually from '07.. They call it additional charges..... wahahah... a wrong word indeed.... this additional charge is indeed a joke... but still i got to commend the organiser / sponsor..in getting Haile to come. Thats a winner!
  7. Did you attempt to get rid of the rust? I want to keep that 2006 medal cos it was my maiden 21 Km
  8. Ah!good analysis,bro Fortunately only one medal has suffered:2006SCMS medal
  9. Some of my old medals have become rusty and mouldy. Anyone knows any effective way to remove the rust/mould,to make it shiny again. TIA
  10. I will check them out. Did u purchase from them ? Nope.from IT show.how chui is ur 210?Mine left the watch face only,so I was thrilled when They fixed it:-)
  11. That is good to hear that and congrats to your purchase of 220.For those who use a forerunner 220, be sure to update your GPS watch as the latest software version 2.7 update is available through Garmin Express software. What I like about the FR220 is the ability to change the straps. I own a FR210 and the strap broke after less than 2 years. Because the strap is moulded to the watch casing, changing the strap could cost me about $150 and requires sending it overseas (think was Taiwan). Tried to glue it back without any success. In the end had to cut off the other end of the strap and just carry the watch body in my shorts during my runs.I faced the same predicament as you coffeeking.but ifBought the 210 local and still retain the receipt,you can get the strap / casing replaced for between $40-$60. Yes I bought mine local at Parisilk. That's the price I was quoted when I called up Navicom.Well, i got mine replaced at Advance Lap Pte Ltd, 1 Queensway #01-43 Tel:64794381

  13. Good to hear that It is the in-built accelerometer that helps to calculate foot cadence/steps based on our foot stride, in turn calculating distance. Unless you use a foot pod together with the GPS watch which is usually the most accurate if calibrated properly. So even if we lose signal strength being underground or weak )reception, the distance recording will still continue Grew agree with trail,no need to press any button on e 210 I tried it at SCMS 13HM
  14. Have you try Queensway shopping Centre? I have not tried Queensway. Will the price be attractive as goobucket since they're offering 15% discount now? One or two authorised agents there, let me see if I can retrieve the name card. You have to call or make a trip down
