If you intend to be shark food please swim naked so that there is no plastic left in the water.  Swim costume is made from plastic!  (Polyester)

collecting leaves for "decency" pose before being feed to the shark...because @Lady Ice said, "please swim naked so that there is no plastic left in the water.  Swim costume is made from plastic!  (Polyester)"

No worries bro. If you are very keen in running, sooner or later you will accomplish ultra. An achievable goal as long as you have finished marathons.

For myself, I aim to actually complete a triathlon. Personally, I find it much tougher as I have to overcome my fear of water, not to say swim in open sea. And I am just talking about the most basic of discovery triathlon (e.g. 250 m swim) 😅

Jiayou and I am sure u can once u set your mind to it...

We all sing Auld Lang Syne at midnight on December 31 but what are the lyrics? Most people don't know that it is a Scottish poem written in 1788 by Robert Burns and later set to the music of a folk song.

All the old posts dug out by kohpapa reminded me of the good old days here, (before the days of smart phones, Facebook etc) 

we shared information on training, races, and actually meetup for runs or makan. (Yes, we called one another by our nicknames)
friendships (and even marriages) were made thanks to sgrunners.com

Ok enough of nostalgia - here is wishing everyone here a happy and healthy year ahead!

70,000 is a full stadium of people. Doubt all these sites add up got even 10,000 people?

I rather just have 1,000 people cheering for us when we ran through the city areas. 😁

Maybe including those who were impatiently trying to cross the roads, the police officers on duty... and maybe those jammed cars on the opposite side of the road ..

    • Perfectly clear on this in Sg...   Covid-19: Should you be jogging or running with a mask on? Find out here (info - https://indianexpress.com/article/lifestyle/health/jogging-running-surgical-mask-covid19-pandemic-6423602/)     High-intensity run includes hilly terrain and that is why uncle should be better to not to wear mask. Only while in city/densely populated zone, and when Pavement is to be shared with Others, then Execise (Brisk Walk) and for the Protection of all, Wear Mask Always. What is the type of Mask best suited for Exercise(Run)?    
    • unofficial and unknown source, so do not be alarmed by what some looked upon when this post-pandemic future (timeline) really will look like...this one looks like the 1918 Pandemic (H1N1 virus), aka, Spanish flu as of today's report: WHO warns of 'second peak' in areas where COVID-19 declining (info - https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/who-warns-second-peak-covid-19-coronavirus-declining-12768450) Is WHO warning us about "Second Wave"? 😷
    • We can give you kudos   No worries @kohpapa - me too will exit as been spending way too much time on social media Seems like have been more like the doomsday person..... but it is certain we must all continue to respect social distancing, wear masks when in confined spaces (I know Sg is different) like public transport to protect others..... or we go for herd immunity. If you want to see what that is looking like, check out Brazil. It is very sad that Bolsonaro is happy to sacrifice the poor and the indigenous people who will have no immunity (there was one tribe that was badly affected with the common cold). The indigenous people have been helping to protect the rain forest and illegal logging has increased in these times. For Bolsonaro, this means the virus can remove a people that was "blocking progression" and further exploitation of the Amazon. His only concern is the economy https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/30/south-america-indigenous-groups-coronavirus-brazil-colombia   FYI how a disease can affect a whole tribe: https://www.survivalinternational.org/articles/3132-tribal-people-health-interview-professor-stafford-lightman
    • Have tried running with a mask a little, but found it impedes taking in air if doing a hard run.  Have instead been giving people a 10 metre distance as well as running when there are fewer people outside (the dinner or lunch hour). Though do note we might have to get used to running with a mask. Have been attending some seminars with run organisers (NYC, Chicago, Berlin, Singapore, etc) around the world who are toying with the idea to ask people to wear a mask in their events.... I'll try to write  a blog post to update every one of further thoughts.  Interesting that runnersworld have picked that up as well (thanks for the link @RaijinFJ)
