  1. Managed to complete the run! Was nt aiming for PB but trying to be ahead of e cut off timing at various pt. Glad i have it written on my arm. The organizer shld indicate e cut off timing at e earlier distance marker. Entertainment - Was amused at e 'bikini-gals'! They were very brave to don the attire! Saw many runners taking selfies with them! However, i was touched at e sight of e senior citizens cheering for us at tanjong pagar stretch. Kudos to all e performancers! Not easy to keep on going-and-going! U turn - Surprised that there are no 'time tracker mat' at e U turn point @ west coat and e ecp! Thought they will put it to deter runners from taking a short cut. Sharetransport - it was a long queue to go up e bus. Kaoz.. reallie no joke to stand and queue up for the bus aft e run. Esp there was so much walking aft e finishing pt. Heat rub - Insufficient heat rub at stations. I shld have brought my own.
  2. I wrote all e cut-off timing on my arm. 32km @ 145am blah. Jin worried. Bt will try to hit e 27.5pm before midnight. Haiz, it is very demotivating to bia all e way to e cut-off pt and realized u will be ushered to e vehicle. E uncertainty of e weather is nt good. If it rains, my nose will become an open tap! Aiyoyo Anyone at e F1 pit now? How's e weather?

  4. So, 27.5km mark is e impt milestone ? I saw a few cut-off timings @ various pt though *just wondering*
  5. Nice recap of e route. 1st time doing the 'heartbreaking' bridge at night. Probably w/o sun, i might stroll up slowly to enjoy e nite scenary (if i am nt close to cutoff time) It cld be motivating to run in e 1st 21km - as it is still within e 'city-zone'. Thereafter, it gets abit mundane running in e park esp at night! Anyone know exactly where is e u turn pt at ecp? Issit near e water ski park? The 5 km in ecp is Zzzz
  6. Indeed, weather not looking good esp for e little kiddos tonight. Just wondering - If it pours 2mr, e cut off time for marathon remains unchanged? @Madmax - was chatting with e sharetransport chap ytd at e expo. Told him e pickup pt seems far leh. He told me no no, it is not that far. I told him aft finishing a marathon, walking another inch is far to me lo.
  7. @Kohpapa - Good to know that u have been healed (naturally!) I was advised to do a minor op to snip it off! It is inspiring testimonial to know that an asthmatic runner finished e marathon! Definitely will keep that in my mind when i feel like giving up!! Hope i could join in e 'post-run' discussion lo - ie how yummy is e pretzel etc Yeah - They are doing e run tonight. Plesantly surprised to find 1 admission tix to Christmas Wonderland @ Gardens by e Bay. For that, e kid's racepack is much better than our racepack. However, i have picked up e tigerbalm 300km coin (+ 2 regular size tigerbalm musclerub) at e booth. Guess that kinda compensate it
  8. @Ladyice - Yes, i may consider to nua at F1 pit 1st. Dunno if i can still walk to the grab pickup pt aft e run (esp with all e rd closure) @Kohpapa - So u have 'recovered' from ur chronic sinus issue? Doc told me to remove e polyp since it did nt subside aft 2 bouts of antibiotics. It is affecting my sense of smell, and of coz, my running performance. Feeling breatheless easily with ard 150-160 bpm. Beri jialut. However, will nt push myself too much till up-lorry. Hope that slow n steady wins e race. Btw, mind sharing what medicated water did u use? I did e saline nasal irrigation which is of no use.
  9. @kohpapa --Thanks for e nightrider info. Spent 10mins+ to figure out the diverted route blah blah but alas, e nightrider ends at 2am+. Will do grab instead. Btw, anyone complete a marathon with chronic sinus condition? Specialist gave me e green light to proceed with e run bt i am always feeling super 'exhausted' during e run..
  10. Medal engraving - any idea whether there will be a long queue for it? Dunno shld buy e sharetransport tix in advance. Nt sure if i can catch e last bus at 330am aft taking into consideration of my running pace + medal queue.
  11. Keke. Thanks for e info on cut off time. Shld be 'easier' to meet cut off time due to e cooler weather at night. Did e 1st edition of sundown marathon back then and it was a disaster to me. Ran past ecp and e sight of e camping tent and the dimmed lights made me so sleepy and i was literally sleep-running. @stalky79 how do u know ur 'official' race time? They are able to check for u or agar agar? @kohpapa thanks for e summary ah - information overload this year cos walao.. kids run on fri, fm on sat, and my 11 yo kid who cannot qualify for kids run may have to 'upgrade' to 5km. So i have to be 'active' mode for 3 consecutive days. Anyone know if it is 'easy' to smuggle into a 5km run? Is there security to chk ur bib to enter into 5km run? I dun wanna e medal bt just wanna to accompany my boy (but dun wanna to pay for my reg fee)
  12. any cut off time for fm? did not find e info at website. anyone doing medal engraving? (for timing). it is so troublesome to do it on site aft e run..
  13. Yah, maybe my face jin smelly during e run esp e sunny weather is making me very moody. i am e type who siam e sun whenever possible. i carry an umbrella to shade me frm e sun during lunchtime etc. kohpapa, it could be a blessing that u are at e last pen. you became e voice of 'e-not-so-fast-runner-bt-wanna-do-marathon' it takes more mental strength to complete e run at e last pen due to e brutal sun + most of e runners ard u are walking + nt enuff supplies (water, banana, gels) + runners ahead of u were doing a u turn i remembered there was one yr whereby there were bo bananas at all. that was epic. e struggle is very real.
  14. some pix found here https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10217314131276496&id=1569274939
  15. kohpapa, how did u manage to get runners talk to you? i was talking to myself during e run (ie: 'walao no shade' , 'so hottt') but managed to chit-chat with 2 runners who smiled back at me. back to e cut-off point, i remembered posting in fb abt it. SCM replied e 7hrs cut off is based on individual flag off time. Lucky i was 5 mins away from cut off time. I am nt a fast runner lo.
