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...

uncle would like to give thanks to @Ice Lady for her outstanding contribution, not only for the Greater Green Earth movement in her selfless Trye(less) Marathons, and on her personal reflection of what 2019 had meant to her ....her wishes for 2020..

May all your resolutions and desires for 2020 come true...show kindness to one another..

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 ..

    • RAPID MUTATION Coronavirus ‘mutated into THREE distinct strains’ as it spread around the world (UK report) (info - https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/11369330/coronavirus-mutated-three-distinct-strains-spread/)          
    • Avoid East Coast Park, Pasir Ris Park, Changi Beach, Punggol...this weekend... go to ulu ones...like ulu pandan...empty adopt SDM...wee hours like uncle's 4am and stop by 6:30am...avoid public transport because "safe distancing" applies...and someone will easily spot runners...because sweaty body will make people complain of body fluids spread via virus...violate "safe distancing" because of you sit too close to somebody...and violate "social distancing" because why you never stay home... don't how lian with your "running" gear like you are runner (limpei is ex-Sundown, ex-Standard Chartered, ex-2XU Compression)...uncle is always with sandals that is why...as though uncle go market buy for family...need to transfer...and being uncle...stubborn lah...yes, bring food back after run...be a shopper...be blamed as shopper... got people go market with running shoes?..normal shoppers in wet market all sandals...even super markets...sandals are normal... wear dark with little brand (hello kitty, pokemon)...to hide your sweat...why sweat too much for what...is it necessary? come on...racing for what...how lian...you can run Ultra? meaning, you don't adopt and there is no need "runner's high" because there is no need to gear for race...only to keep fit...and to be aerobic...because that is the reason just to sweat, because you are "warm up and heated to burn fat"...cool down with more time...what is the rush also...take a walk away from the crowd....or prepare home bound...discreetly...if you can U-turn home bound...or commute safely home bound... yes, trail running is preferred...because most of the time...you are not visible in public preying eyes...the only places congested at MacRitchie, Bukit Timah Hill, and Daisy Farm because got carparks...and also avoid North Hill and Lornie Amenities area...because lots of walkers and hikers can come from Venus Loop via Venus Car Park...these are the ones that visible to the public..and so bad publicity...and avoid...easy target for "Safe Distancing" and "Social Distancing" violations...expect Exercise Ambassadors to catch you there this weekend...which is from Sat tomorrow... Finally, 2M rule (wear Mask always, unnecessary Mingling should be avoided)... 1st M - wear masks to run? ...unless you want to train for Olympics or run for Mountain Race why not...but, you can wear Mask for SGUnited...so mask gear is essential always...  2nd M - maintain a non-sweaty body state like you never violate Mingling with no essential reason...that is unless you just escape from Changi Prison...and that is essential why you are running... All are welcome share here so that we will update "alert" as well as....yes, CB is only a warmup for Lockdown... as someone has already said... cb sg...become like in Italy when even jogging, park walks are banned...20 March 2020 reported.. and later very soon....say a week from today...what we have enjoyed in the past and now... these places at National Parks or PCNs will be and can be "OUT OF BOUNDS"...because of Covid-19. Better prepare to run round table for 21km...thousands times..and leave your running sweat and "runner's high spirit" at home and not outdoor...wear mask or not for Social Distancing and Safe Distancing....SGUnited...by then it is up to you for there is no need for 2M Rule at home. 😷
    • I think those who want to run better continue to do so when they can. CB is just another word for lockdown. The problem is the govt is so adverse to the word that it try to be creative with its term. Just like we call it 'Safe Distancing' instead of 'Social Distancing' but everyone knows it mean the same thing. Given the current trajectory, I would not be surprised if very soon, you would not even be allowed to go out for exercise or a walk. (Just like over the causeway)   
    • Great to see some sgrunners from Eastern SG and getting the needed workout today.  Good tips from kohpapa on safety distancing during exercise. I chose an industrial area with a park and saw less than five runners during today's morning run. Continue to stay safe and healthy here during this tough times.😷
    • ulu time and ulu routes...make sure don't run 3am - 5am...because "run" on sleep means..you bang to lamp posts while on Sleep mode... and also, encounter wild dogs means you have been "tracked" as food... run strong, and stay CB measures at all time...1m...even you are chased by wild dogs...maintained always at 1m...otherwise...fine or jail or both...😷
