  1. True, this has always been the advantage of a virtual race, low fees and flexible entitlements according to what we want...
  2. Understand your point, it is quite clear that Virtual won't be counted as a proper streak for you.. In this way, all your streak races will be broken this year although we are still unsure if SCSM will be a virtual race.... Given such circumstances, many runners are hanging on a race to train for so i think a virtual race might be something that keeps some runners sane...
  3. hahah... i still did a few until i was injured... so i think motivation to train for a race is important... yup.... that's me... but seriously i have not done any "LSD" on my own for 42.195km... so might go for 21.1 Half marathon instead...
  4. that is right.... i took this time to rest mostly to nurture my injury-prone legs back to its 20s... hahah... So maybe you are right that having virtual races definitely will spur us on even more... the only con is that it will feel like another LSD alone....
  5. Actually i will prefer the race to be cancelled rather than virtual. What's everyone's take on this?
  6. wow... super long post @Lady Ice... i rem reading about the Hamsburg marathon organisers describing how they are going to ensure the safety of all before reopening their registration. It seemed that at least they have taken a step back to really consider all 360deg by listening to others. It is only 2 mths left so unsure if they can manage to pull this off though..
  7. i strongly believe that humans will still win this war with the virus, hence all runners just have to be a little more patient...
  8. Agree with Beast bro.... even if they really do allow the race to go on, who would actually sign up without having any fear?? It's gonna be a long race with hours in the race (without mask) exposed to people from all over.... the risk taker mentality vs the "itch" to have a streak race comes in for most people here...
  9. yup indeed.... so it might be the one and only chance to receive a HM/FM medal from this race...
  10. Registration has started !!! The aim this year is to raise $800,000 for the cancer society.
  11. yea, and i also avoid crowded PCNs if i run as well, or run at odd timings..
  12. I still feel that it is not that safe to run in groups yet. Hence i prefer to run alone now or with someone in the household. The virus is still on the rise gradually after Phase 2 opening and we still have to be vigilant and stay clear of unknowns. Some pointers i got from the article. (Source: https://www.runnersworld.com/news/a32815375/is-it-safe-to-run-in-groups/) What do you all think?? Before you consider running with a partner or small group, ask yourself: Are there any restrictions on activities or gatherings in my area? Are coronavirus cases in my community increasing or decreasing? Is community spread low? Am I feeling sick? Will those who I’m running with stay home if they’re feeling sick? Are we running in an area where we can spread out? Are we running in an area where we won’t come in contact with others? Have I or my training partners been in close proximity with others for an extended period of time, such as at a bar or restaurant, an office, or club? Do I live with anyone who is immunocompromised?
  13. health related matters is something that we should not take for granted and one should always be real careful... rest if needed...
  14. that is true.... running is a harsh sport on the joints especially hence i am sidelined for a while this year as well.... getting health is the most important... hence please don't take it for granted too...
  15. i encountered it once after 2017 or 2018 Standard chartered FM... did some research and it mentioned that if this bleeding persists, then need to see doctor, if it doesnt, then it's alright. I think there is no need to reduce the running volume too much, it can be just adhoc or one-off.
