  1. Yes, actually all I want is just the medal. For those virtual runs I took part, I usually choose just medal category. But if I run actual race with min HM distance, I would want the finisher shirt too...
  2. I will stay on the sideline see what are the entitlements for the virtual run first. I believe the price will not be as expensive as their actual race and have the option to choose what entitlements we want.
  3. Those runners who do this race every year may be all right with virtual race to ensure there is no 'gap'.
  4. Usually held at East Coast, this year becomes virtual run they are able to have HM and FM as well.
  5. Agree with you bro. Most safe to run alone or with someone within your household.
  6. No worries. I encountered this problem twice when running HM when the weather was very hot and I was like very tired. LOL. I had thought because of insufficient water input, but perhaps the reasons can be found here: https://www.newhealthadvisor.org/blood-in-urine-after-running.html I didn't encounter this issue running long distance in the evenings.
  7. Objective opinion indeed. The organizers can only go ahead with the race upon 'approval' by the authorities, who must have deem is safe to do so.
  8. I have 2 more races - Zoo Run and Ground Zero. This year is the last race for Zoo Run and Ground Zero Run doesn't happen every year. So if they proceed with the runs, I would go head with them too.
  9. Yeah. As it is in Oct, the organizers are still waiting to see further covid-19 development.
  10. Sorry for jumping in, just want to give my 2 cents. I think it is good to share ideas and and feedback. Just keep an open mind. In corporate life, sometimes an illogical idea being brought up actually led to a workable suggestion from another. Any forums, not just this, needs people like both of you contributing ideas and comments, or else the forum will turn really silent. For this CB, I actually did more runs than pre-covid 19. Simply because I am working from home and have more time to do the runs in late afternoon like 5.30 pm, rather than after usual work time beyond 7 pm. And I am doing virtual runs. Somehow feel the need to have a medal after completion. LOL. Whatever the case, let us keep the ideas and conversation going.
  11. Yes, unsurprising. Will be waiting to see what entitlements they offer and the registration fees.
  12. I ever ran HM using runkeeper to track the distance. I would say quite good considering the app is free. Though I don't understand why at times the connection was lost or the app stops tracking if I place the hand phone in the arm band.
  13. Yes, saw videos on the tokyo and osaka marathon. The crowd support and food is really super!
  14. Don't know why, but seems the gels didn't work for me. What worked for me were the bananas actually. The bananas did give me energy and a 'full stomach' after 25 km to last to the end.
