  1. Signed for HM. Waiting for SCSM to become Standard Chartered Sundown Marathon to start at 6pm to sign up for FM
  2. Good race. Positive vibes. Refillable hydration points. Great to see Tzu Chi (Taiwan based NGO) to spread the message of recycling at the race village. Sure to sign on this race for years to come.
  3. Running HM tomorrow. Hopefully it will be a simple but well organized race,
  4. I will support this race for its good organisation and noble cause. I ran the 15km in 2014 but stopped for subsequent years. Time to restart!
  5. Previous years ST Run end at the National Stadium. Feel great when enter the stadium and run the last lap on the track. Better than Padang in my opinion. But maybe cost a factor.
  6. Did the 2XU 10km after last week's Sundown FM. When you place 2 races back to back, we will definitely make comparisons. In this case, Pinkapple did a commendable job overall! Some bottlenecks along Tanjong Rhu PCN and medal collection point but other than that I must say it was well organized. My Garmin read 10.66km though. 2XU run will have a permanent place in my running calendar.
  7. Sundown 2017 was quite a disappointment. Getting from acceptable to worse. After giving up on Marina Run, thinking hard if should give up on Sundown next year. But then there are only 2 FM in SG per year. really hope 2XU can make up for the 'losses' this weekend. Or maybe 2XU can do us a favour by restarting FM!
  8. Great weather.. Cloudy with some breeze..Can't ask for anything better for late morning.. Overall good organization and an enjoyable run... Post race food was nice too..
  9. My watch reads 10.36km. But don't know if it is wise to run around Marina area in a Saturdqy evening with so many tourist and families.. Too many runners and some parts too narrow..Don't think there is a finisher T-shirt this year. Weather was good and hydration was adequate.
  10. The queue is just too long.. Gave up.. Come back tomorrow earlier in the morning.. Traffic around Novena is also heavy.
  11. Just finished 10K... Too many walkers.. Hot and humid weather.. 3 hydration points...Started at close to 7:40am..no ELM...no bananas!! Hope the half and full marathoners had better experience..
  12. Ran the kids dash with my daughter this morning... Medal confirmed not ELM..
  13. I was also soaked wet at Nila Run and left immediately..it was a pity coz wanted to see the Singapore marathoners (Rui Yong and Ashley) at the finish line..
  14. Yup.. I signed up for the 10k next year.
  15. Pls start the 2016 FM before midnight.. I think HM this year was 12am and FM was 1am..
