Like I said before, it's funny we don't seem to notice the distances sometimes while running... but try walking even just 5k... and you'll find out how far it is! 🤣 🤣 🤣

full agreed. on many ocassions, my wife also suan me whenever we go for shopping. That's because i would want to park at the nearest to the entrance of any shopping centrex... and my wife soulc say something along the line, "you run long distance leh.... how come go shopping must be so lazy and calculative huh..." 😆

See the finisher T and I felt tired already.

The finisher shirt is very nice! 😍  😍 😍

But as much as I love to run... at the risk of getting "boos" and catcalls from "die-hard" runners lurking out there, I have to admit that I don't enjoy going these distances (ultras over 100km) either.

I'm not young anymore, and can't afford to "abuse" my body too much if I want to stick to my dream of being able to run marathons at a reasonably decent clip until I'm an old granpa already😉 

 

I know a runner or two over here who can still do 4 hr marathons in their 70's & 80's (for their age category, times in the 4 hr range are very fast already) and have managed to also be lifetime runners without any body damage...

However, for ordinary folks like me who aren't blessed to inherit such genes... I've got to take a conservative aproach, and train/run smart in order to be able to pull something off like that even when I'm that old. 😅

@simonleng This is off topic, and the moderators would probably would probably say that I ought to start a new thread on it (sorry!), but while I'm here I'd like to share that I'm currently "daydreaming" about this race in Japan called the Shibamata 100K:

https://tokyo100k.jp/english/

The 2020 edition was cancelled, and I'm very sure the 2021 edition won't push through either since May is too soon in time, given the current pandemic conditions, but it is something to look forward to. 

The time limit for the 100k is a bit hard though (only 14 hrs!) which I cannot do! 😭  But that for the 60k event (9hrs) is quite reasonable. Perhaps someday...

    • that is good.... a goal setting right from the start of 2021 and chiong for it...
    • maybe from uncle's perspectives on virtual events (locally and globally)... yes, must agree with @beast, this Virtual Event is very much for those who are newbie runners (who may want to upgrade from brisk walk to run)...21KM in 1 month (very generous)...depends on individuals... given that the race is virtual, again agree with @beast, the organizer must bear the cost (inclusive as participation fee)...if this is covid-19 social distancing measures, participants have the rights to have "items as specified to be delivered"... and if the shipping cost (add-on) is not preferred, it is as good as user will consider if participation is necessary... from uncle's observation, the reason why if the organizer wants you to pick up is "shopping" at their stores...marketing gimmicks...in most virtual races uncle had participated, uncle browse "Store/Shop" online, and if want add-ons, just top-up and find out, what will be the reasonable "shipment cost"...of course, expect FOC lah...again if not satisfy..then no need to "buy" online or even register "online" for the event. Example for JustRunLah!Connect Virtual Race event...$18.88 2 months to complete 18.88KM or 88.88KM (very generous)... the only difference is the participation fee included Shipping..which will expect the organizer to inform participants (from 5 February 2021...expect to deliver and to receive...otherwise email...) because 2021 is still "covid-19 pandemic" like 2020.. better to stay home, stay safe, stay strong, and remain "Virtual Run" in Run (Exercise) program...👌
