  1. I tried before those jelly beans but realised I need to take quite a lot as each bean is pretty small and definitely much less energy and sodium as compared to energy gel...
  2. Actually consuming energy gels does not prevent one from hitting the wall .. there are other factors which other runners have shared here. The legs, mind and stomach ( gels purpose) need to be aligned in order to run a FM without any issues.
  3. Haaa.... it was stuffy cause the width of the route was narrower than when it's up the highway... I think just dun be too fast this time round to avoid the sun... haaaa
  4. I was still hoping to run below the highway but doesn't seem so...
  5. Not that I heard of.. sign up for free and there give u a medal after completion? Hmn....
  6. I can still accept this design and would not consider it as very "loud"....
  7. Sometimes having disposable raincoat might not be bad thing in case of sudden strong gust of wind blowing through the starting pens...
  8. Thanks @beast... Tokyo marathon is colder than Osaka marathon as one is start of winter while the other is end of winter... I dun do races which are too cold before to the extent where I need to wear long tights or pants so cant comment on that.. Lastly the runners in Osaka marathon is also huge( less than Tokyo but significant enough) thus it will take some time for you to stand in the cold while waiting for your pen to start moving towards the start line. So do dress and cover appropriately.
  9. Hope is impt in life... with hope comes target; with target comes realisation... ?
  10. Congrats... 1st step done.... enjoy the planning ahead...
  11. ?... quality is important to me ... i need to hope to feel motivated...
  12. Agree....where there is real 4 terrains to run in... really a race of it's kind... it's kinda lost now...
  13. Walau... I never say anything about CU leh... talking about overseas race can link to this also...?..
  14. There is always a next year... how about trying to prioritise this race for next year?
  15. Yup... there is a chance that i cant go due to work commitment... so see how how it goes...
  16. U r right ! Due to work commitments, might have to forgo. Its not the 1st time anyway.. sad...
  17. For Japan races, there is a strict rule where u have to be in your starting pens early ( like 45mins-1hr before start)... And it's really strict as I seen before that people were denied entry just 1minute past that timing given... And also note that there are certain junctions leading to the start point where they will close off early as well and I have also seen runners being denied entry when it's like.... 1hr before starting time... So read thru the information to ensure u reached early and on time..
  18. Well I am a little disappointed though and hope that the compressports top is better in comfort than the past finisher tees they supplied for other races...
  19. The run expereince into the sports hub is what runners are looking for since its not frequent...
  20. Haven fully firm up la... once firmed up then share lo.. nothing secretive.. just dun wanna say things which dun exist in future.
  21. Agree @trailblazer... there is no more 35km slope... however the few steep slopes from 0m to 20m between 28km to 33km seemed to be quite difficult too... and not forgetting that once reached around 42km mark still need to climb back up to Osaka castle ( cause i rem it's a bit of downslope coming down from start point last time)...
  22. Wah... thanks Simon for the support... but keep disappointing u year after year... think my injury back then really gave me a good lesson...
  23. Wahahaha... I really doubt my legs can take it for an ultra... they are quite injury prone... haaa
