    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.

    Vietnam Mountain Marathon VMM 2017

    Yeah, 42k comes with +2000 elevation so not easy at all. But the scenery is fantastic and ends at one of the most spectacular finish line Yup, expected X1.5 to 2 times your average marathon time.

    Great! Hope to meet some Singaporeans and make new running friends there! Was there last year... had lots of fun! Going for longer race this year. This race is getting very popular and all 21k, 42k and 70k slots are sold out.
  9. Anyone heading to SAPA for VMM2017 this weekend??

    Pocari Sweat Run - 23 Jul 2016

    Yeah, miss Energizer night trail. Like the format whereby I can run obstacle race with kids in late afternoon, had dinner and run night race while kids keep themselves busy with treasure hunt and other games! The route is unique too... you don't get to run in SAF training areas every weekend

    Green Race Forest 60 2017 - 26 Aug 2017

    Did the 42 k trail for The Green Race last Saturday morning. Total runners probably about 900?? There were 128 finishers for 42k, 677 for 21k, not sure about 60k finishers .. maybe about 100? Race started at 6.15 for 42 & 60k runners and 6.30 for 21k runners. Good points: small boutique event, running in loops and out/back routes so plenty of opportunities to bump into friends, plenty of high fives and encouragement from fellow runners, volunteers. Cool weather. Good food (crackers, sandwiches, fruits, chocolates), cold drinks at check points. Great vibes at finishing points. Areas for improvement: no checking for mandatory items (unfair to other runners? Safety?), some 60k runners got lost in chestnut loops, no lunch provided at end point - mountain bikers zooming down track 15 despite knowing that there was on-going event - good mental training- takes sheer will power to tear yourselves away from start/finish point to start 2nd loop knowing fully well what lies ahead 😡😡 Also copied link to race review from Jon Cheal https://fromroad2trail.wordpress.com/2017/08/27/the-green-race-forest-60-well-21/
  14. Congrats to all you crazy nuts for completing crazy distances!!!! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ Awesome achievement!!! Salute!!!! Btw, think I saw Jerry& his pacer at Upper Thomson Rd/Mandai Road junction around 10am on Sunday while driving towards Yishun. Sounded my horn to show my support!!! But you guys were probably too focused and determined on completing the race to notice 😁😁😁! Once again congrats for completing such a daunting race!!! πŸ‘πŸ‘
  15. Congrats for a hard-earned PB!!!! ✌️✌️✌️
