wah, bro The Scientist Runner.. has followed your conquest since uncle joined sgRunners in 2011..kind of late bloomer.. but share running passion.. your educational credential..awesome.. MIT..are you PhD or what or Master..

guess what uncle also hailed from US higher institute of learning.. california UC...EEE.. master in BA..new york.. worked in florida based at boca raton at the IBM reseach centre for few years.. then attach to north carolina high tech park.. years ago..what good solid good old USA stories..

Interstate 10..alabama, ississippi, arkansas..next welcome to texas..head south interstate 35W..fort-worth/dallas twin city.. yap, hot hot hotter than singapore..the cowboy..southern ascents..and great steaks..

saw pics of the Cowtown Ultramarathon.. texas beef..oh ya, delicious, like texas babes beside you, bro The Scientist Runner ..yap Dallas Cowboys (football), Texas Rangers (baseball).. in usa..currently should be baseball season followed by football season in early fall.. uncle miss all these..only in memories in yesteryears..

ok, since uncle actually in-out USA for almost 10years.. city streets are so easy North East South West.. with the town hall/city building in the centre.. and city streets are mostly straight.. and in some school campus.. wide lanes for bikers.. and Highways are of course, big enough for Interstate trucks.. and if you drop-by Rest Area in any of the Highways.. like on TV got restaurants, some got places to sleep over.. and for cheapskate uncle.. sleep in car..during hot summer..mosquito net..of course with bike mount at rear of car.. bike to town to buy grocery and sightseeing..since illegal parking means tow car.. and uncle use Universities campus as washing bay.. security to uncle,"yo, you are at administration, you got reason".. "ya, officer, apply for post-graduate..check out schools..sorry arrive to late..just park overnight..no problem..rest in car..".. of course, uncle z z ZZZZ.. and if you notice.. no fences on most american houses.. trusting and forever think that USA is the best and safest place in the world.. for that uncle agrees..except for one trip to chicago..while uncle peeing at public toilet, one dude asked uncle 5 bucks for grass or not (marijuana)..uncle peed into pants then..this dude got knife or gun or not?..uncle acted blur blur..no understand english..speak in chinese dialect.."temasek"..meaning "his mother go die"

    • Me personally think that China is up & coming regardless of road races or trail events ie. UTMB etc. We will definitely see more & more Chinese runners. Plus point that is their sporting culture much stronger than ours. Political reason we will see a China marathon becomes one of WMM in the future & most like will be Chengdu Marathon. Rational Wanda Chairman's hometown is at Chengdu. Link:    SDM might not be known internationally but due to marketing efforts of previous owner HiVelocity, they have sold the idea of "Largest Night Race in Asia" to this region ie. China, Taiwan, Malaysia etc. So definitely if any runner is talking of night race, SDM will come in the picture & not clone like Bangkok Midnight Marathon. Of course SDM has much to improve as compared to SCSM & cut down silly mistakes like Water Not Enough. If not,  it will be like what you said Sleep Forever.
    • uncle ran on Nike Vaporfly running shoes     that comfortable feeling is the feather-lightness of the thickness of soles and carbon fibre plate... waterproof material wraps round feet...don't need to wear socks...almost feel "five-finger" wrap round legs...except sole is no longer Vibram. racing responsiveness indeed...running feet are charged for PB anytime... depending on individual runner's efficiency in his/her running gait, wear and tear of soles taken into consideration depending on the run terrain ...lifespan of 400km+  I seriously don't see why the shoe should be banned. Make no sense at all. If technology can improve one's timing or feel good factor, it should be allowed in my opinion. If technology in run can make runners feel runner's high all the time by running more efficient..why banned? ...maybe only for the Elite Runners for good Sportsmanship. 😀 More on Nike Vaporfly...             Note: uncle is not sponsored by Nike, nor brands like New Balance, Asics, Adidas...uncle is a barefoot minimalist..and uncle just "thrown" out Five-Fingers Vibram due to wear and tear and spring cleaning for the Lunar New Year...😁

    • China - will 'marathon fever' continue? Our other WMM Major Candidate for 2021/2022 (info - https://www.shine.cn/sport/2001079314/)     Bro, i don't think SDM will die out. I felt SDM has become a branding on it's own over the years. A truly "Sleep Can Wait" event that runners ran unearthly hours over the years. Branding of Marathon event must attract Strong Local Runner and especially International runners. It must also innovate with technology. Otherwise, a truly "Sleep Can Wait" event will "Sleep Forever or RIP". SDM has yet to be known as "branded" internationally (being certified), except it has being known as "Water Not Enough" Singapore Marathon.  July - August (Summer months) there are many available slots for SCSM to be considered for 2021 The humidity in May - August has been always high (a minus for any endurance run) and often the date clash with the Muslim Ramadan and Hari Raya (a minus for muslim runners who may come from the region like Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia). May/June is the Inter Monsoon Season and there is possibility of "stormy-thunder lighting weather". Of course, this will more than likely sound the death knell for SDM unless it does the smart thing and shift to the end of the year. SDM has yet reinvented itself as "Sun Rise" Day Marathon and that also can be a death knell for SDM. Unlike SCSM - Day or Evening or Night Marathon option is always there.
