  1. For the start of the 21km, I felt some parts were too narrow. And it was also hard to overtake as I was in wave 2. It got much better for me only after 10km. End result it was the worst 21km for me 🤣.

    I guess it is the time to manage the servers and so on. Not easy if you have a full time job and family.

    Fenix 5x firmware update

    Are you not supposed to update it using Garmin Express?

    2XU Compression Run 2018 - 8 Apr (Sun)

    Thanks for the offer, but it is not necessary. My bib was given by someone else. So, I already got a free run. I am just surprised at their attitude. There will be leftover medals and it will be disposed off. So, they could taken my name down and contact me later.

    2XU Compression Run 2018 - 8 Apr (Sun)

    My garmin showed 21.47km. But then it is not a gold class event. So, the actual distance may not be accurate either. Overall, it was ok. I checked into the race pen at 4:15 but ended up in the last wave. Wave 4 and 5 started together at about 5:10. MC said there was some issue but I could not make out what he said. On a personal note, I was careless and dropped the medal. Tried to make my way back but stopped by security. Then they asked me to go to information counter to ask for a replacement medal. I went there and they tell me everyone is entitled to one only. The tone I got from them was “Since you lost it, it is your problem”. I admit being careless, but I never asked for a replacement medal and security refused to let me look for it. Such a letdown.

    Tokyo Marathon 2018 - 25 Feb 2018

    I did it in 2013 and 2017. If you are on the fence, don't hesitate! I am skipping 2018. So, I can wish all those who register - Good Luck!

    Disagree ! Do not DNF those real runners (incurred injury during the race or due to some other reasons) that indeed spent many hours to complete the whole race route such as Uncle Chan, the 84 years old oldest marathoner as long as deem accepted by the race organizer ! Agree with that. If you did not cheat, no one will call you a cheater. You want to try running at age 84? Give some people credit for their guts.

    Wahahaha...not my uncle, but my colleague. 57 years old. As he ran like a speed demon, he finished slightly after 9am.

    My friend ran his marathon in 4h 3m. Just look at this picture. Tell me...why are there cheaters? What is the point of paying $55 and cheat? Might as well buy the finisher tee on eBay. https://www.facebook.com/runningshots.sg/photos/a.798158483565759.1073742951.309422402439372/798181790230095/?type=1&theater

    Good for you. I selected 5-6hr estimated finishing. Took off at the last wave, which was gun time + 20min. Big regret, since I am usually sub-5. Got baked by the sun for so long. Still managed a sub-5. No more 'old hero' next time.
