ASICS World Ekiden 2020 Virtual Race [Team of 6] (Nov 11-22)

Recommended Posts

Wait, I am confused (as always), what are we voting for again?

I am not so bothered by whether we are in the top 100 teams (I still don't know how we are placed in top 100), or what are our run timings. I am only doing this because it is a cool and inclusive thing to do with the people in this forum which otherwise is on the quiet side. I do try to run a bit faster for the runs than usual though.

Anyway I am still aiming to complete my leg of the sgrunnersunited this week. And I guess that should be the end of this Ekiden experience.

Yah Lor already ready come on sgrunners United. No matter tight legs, no matter no sleep, and the weather is only bad when we are not dressed for it. Ready captain @kohpapa

how about you @starfinder...are you ok to go for the best effort with endured distance and speed...because Team sgRunner2020 has already drop out of Top 3 (Singapore) and very soon we are even no longer in Top 200 (World's Best) because we no longer can even run for it? 

actually uncle agrees with you earlier, since Others are always better than us anyway...

uncle thinks...why not we don't waste time with each other...simply...Remove from ourselves...runkeeper..

 if-not.jpg

save us the agony of having to do it one more time?

But, after hearing out and respecting the views of all other members...we still treasure you as member of a new fantastic team SgRunnersUnited who will do the very best...will you?

Yes, Uncle, just ran this route.

I don't usually archive my runs. Once I screenshot and upload to fulfill my virtual race events, I normally will delete them after some time. To 'declutter' lah.

I will just keep those runs which were done in different venues (out of Bedok) 😁 to relish the good memories...

哇 Wah! So expensive!!!  🙀
You can buy a new GPS watch already with those prices!

Over here, I usually buy running shoes when they're on sale already... (I'm also a cheapskate uncle 🤣 )

I am cheapskate also. I don't buy the latest model and usually only during promo. @kohpapa is running almost every day and guess it is worthwhile then to invest in better shoes.
