  1. Virgin Money London Marathon 2018

    hi ladyice, thanks for sharing your experience did you run with your tyre? my main concern now is the accommodation - i have booked a hotel near greenwich - but not sure which starting point i will be assigned... my friend plans to stay nearer to the finish point instead... is traveling to the start point on race day a big issue?

    thanks ayukawa22 it seems so exotic and exclusive that i only know of another friend from SG who will also be participating if you know anyone else from SG will will be participating, please invite him/her to link up with me cheers
  3. hi all, contrary to the many complaints, i had a very good race experience at SCSM17 - i think here are the reasons: 1) baggage deposit service i didn't use the baggage deposit service (in fact, i never use them) i left home in my running gear + bib + gel, and go home by MRT sweaty / smelly 2) race route some parts of the route may be crowded, but i didn't find myself being obstructed, even early in the race. i had no issues with drinks/isotonic/bananas (i didn't take their gel) drummers / cheerleaders and live band were great in bringing up the atmosphere 3) finisher tshirt size doesn't matter to me because i just collect but don't wear them 4) early start (and kind weather) helped i started in pen C, and finished just outside 5hrs - the above are from my perspective
  4. i always check before i head down if you trace the past years' posts you should see some bad experiences
  5. looks like it is well managed this time - unlike previous years, usually get long queues especially on the first day... anything interesting at the expo?

  10. Status update...

  11. wouldn't that be too much food? if each person brings 5 packs of cha-kuay-teow, then 10 people will bring 50 packs... how to finish?
  12. The path after coming down the bridge is blocked The way into the indoor stadium is via macdonalds - no short cut
  13. this must be one of the rare occurrence that you miss CBD run... i was late as usual, but managed to catch up with tigger and ST just before nicoll highway...he told me "the rest ran to indoor stadium" so i continued on, hoping to see a big group of runners... just when i reached stadium road i saw babumouse running back at sub-5min pace...there after i saw 2 runners but don't know who they are... reached indoor stadium, ran from east gate to west gate but no signs of any other runner, so i ran back on my own where was everyone?
  14. translation? let me try tigger had japanese dinner with 3 icecream men, who got very angry because the chef didn't give them enough seasoning
  15. mount faber today...hmmmmmm....
