  1. Most likely it is. The finisher shirt design comes out, different design for 18.45km finisher and the rest.
  2. Sadly no special muscle, at least for running. Basically similar to @jerrylam, it is the overall body itself legs and the core. For casual runners don't really affect that much, but for those participating in few marathons/half marathons per year or back to back events perhaps want to look into strengthening the muscle to help reduce the effect in later years.
  3. You can look at the list of community photographers at MY Runners' FB Page
  4. I attended the talk given by Running Convention ealier this year, one of the quest speaker (rehab specialist) commented most runner forget is we need to train the necessary muscle to take the pounding from long distance running. Running alone will not able to support the necessary pounding.
  5. They organised friendship run for FM runners on saturday morning, some KL running group also organised morning fun run(KL Spin?) on Saturday morning. Some of my friends who joined recommended it, nice event to get to know other people. I flew in saturday morning and came back yesterday afternoon, Friday is a better option so you can join those community event.
  6. Same timing with SIA Charity run, perhaps contender for Xiao Lang weekend.
  7. It looks quite bland, design might be ok on a singlet but looks too bland on a shirt. Perhaps it is a personal preference.
  8. Ran HM this morning, starting area was great. Rows and rows of portable toilet. Route wise is hilly to say the least but still manageable. Water stop is okay though the first water stop is at 4-5km? No bottleneck though certain area before entering the expressway was bit narrow. Not much spectators until the last few km, volunteers were adequate. Saw one angmoh female runners got treatment by the medic at the last? or second last water stop (underpass at the expressway), one runner inside the ambulance somewhere at km 12, looks like some injury and one elite foreign runners quite running before km 10. Didn't get PB, but given the hilly terrain I will take few minutes extra to complete it. My Garmin recorded 13.4 miles and my friends who ran the FM recorded 44km? Though the pacers commented the GPS data isn't accurate. In my opinion, you get more than what you paid for. Now need to train for trail HM and then Bali. On other notes, there was Ironman booth at the expo with sample of the SCSM 2017 running tee, it looks quite meh...
  9. Signed up for my first FM.
  10. From the schedule it will be closed between May and June. However, I was at MacRitchie last week wednesday, and no closure yet.
  11. Hopefully it will not be crowded by Saturday afternoon. See you guys at dataran merdeka on sunday morning. Going to have meet up session with other Indonesian runners at the embassy tomorrow.Looks like KL Marathon has became more popular than Singapore Marathon.
  12. For me, it is not the main reason but those runner's entitlement can be the deciding factor if I'm on the fence about joining some race. Anyway decided to skip this run, need to rest after running HM at MSIG AA the day before.
  13. Just realize it is organised by Hivelocity...I guess I will just eat my word and give my money to that guy again.
  14. This year no MRT service was never really explained, my hypothesis is cost issue.
  15. you have to sign up for all the run in singapore, jb and some say even batam.
