    Income Eco Run 2018 - 29 Apr (Sun)

    Oh dear ... hope he is ok. Heard the ambulance twice at the finishing line after my race. Started in th 2nd wave of HM after being stuck stuck in toilet pre-race queue for 15-20 mins, the. Realise there are more toilets with much shorter queue near start pen. Generally, the race wasn’t too crowded after first 1 - 2k. Need to siam some laggers from 1st wave but not much of a issue for me. Brought my own bottle, had no problem getting them refilled at the stations. Certain stretches of 21k course are quite dark and narrow and too many u-turns, other than that quite well sign-posted with volunteers at critical junctions. Can’t comment on finisher t shirts and medals as I signed up as zero waste runner. But appreciated the massage and ice-cream at welfare areas. To me, it was pretty well-organised race with not too big a crowd.
  2. Nice meeting you too Jerry! I was lucky not to affected by the baggage fiasco.... that was a complete disaster!! And the queues and distance that runners have to go through to get to rest area after finish line were ridiculous too. Other than that, I quite enjoyed the new route thru the city and there were enough water and 100plus along the way.
  3. Well said Jerry! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Fact is most of us are not aiming to be running elites... so it is critical that we never lose the fun element and continue to enjoy ourselves so that running is kept sustainable. While it is good to keep improving, sometimes it’s good to remind ourselves why we started running in the first place so that running do not become another source of stress.
  4. I saw this photo of Rachel towards the end of Newton 32k.... she looked so relaxed, machiam taking leisure Sunday stroll!! 🀣🀣 Yet , her timing was like😱😱. These elites made it look so simple.. haha! Looking forward to seeing the top local women runners compete in SCSM... Rachel, Jie Si, Ying Rong, Jasmine... good crop of runners!!
  5. Thanks for the useful tips! I find it useful to bring along a small tube of muscle cream as well for those who are prone to cramps.

    Marathon Des Sables 2018

    Wow! All the best for your MDS, ultrazaw !!! Ultra respect to you for attempting this!!! Have bookmarked your blog on my browser.... will be rooting for you!!! Jia you!!!
  11. I'm having the same problem for naming as Johor bahru run by default. Btw, are your runs in northern part of singapore? You might want to check the start times in garmin connect .., could be off too
  12. Thanks trailblazer I'll try Fit2app and see if it works! The wrong start time is apparently due to bugs in Garmin Connect IOS app... Especially if u upload wirelessly and edit using the app. Many users are affected too based on what I gathered on Garmin forum. Another irritating is that when I upload runs in MANDAI or woodlands thru Garmin Connect IOS .. They are labelled as Johor Bahru Runs de fault.
  13. Happy New Year to all!!! Been using my FR 220 more than a month with no major complaints. Managed to solve the problem with wireless upload by changing my phone 😁😁 Just 2 small issues which I wonder if you guys have encountered too.. Firstly, even tho I have installed the RUNKEEPER plugin, Still cannot use bulk uploader to transfer from watch to RUNKEEPER ... I will need choose n upload one run at a time using the old uploader Second, I noticed that the start time for runs cannot be found on Garmin Connect mobile (am I missing something?? ).. Can only be found on Garmin Connect website.. And somehow, the start times shown are wrong... My morning runs are shown as afternoon runs...even tho settings for uploading time zone is correctly set as GMT+8hrs China standard time?

    Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2014

    I used to do that... Will wrap m&m ( those without peanuts) with aluminium foil and pack them for my long runs. Nowadays, mostly gels... But still occasionally use them for my runs if there is craving
