The Fatbird photos shall serve as a memory to us for years to come.

In 20 years today a participant at the MR25 ultra marathon may stop by at the water station and ask for a glass of 100plus drink from the hand of uncles or aunties who were once upon a time the team Fatbird pacers in 2008.

Hi

Wud like to say the Fatbirds certainly add colours to the marathon, with their ballons and the striking singlet with the split times behind.

Was running with a lady Fatbird Pacer between 10-17 km mark i think. She was wearing a very fierce Oakley(i think) and she was also very tanned. Had the word DSO on her left arm. Not too sure who she was.

Saw Frootloop and Terence near the 24-25 km and heard the former saying his ITB very pain, hope you are ok now.

Ran the last 10km with Cookie, nice meeting you.

Once again, Fatbirds, job well done !

Although I did not see any one of the 4:45 pacers, nevertheless I would like to thank them all cos I was running and trying desperately to catch up with you guys and that eventually allowed me to finish just a little wee bit off the 4:45 timing.

That should be Helen, cos' she was under DSO research as well and far more tanned than me. If her tag behind says 4:15hrs pacer, she's Helen. =) If it says 4:30hrs, that's me. =)

ah, cant even remember the pace timing on the back. guess it was you, sassy runner, cause i was never that fast. was running at about 6.50min per km between the 10-17 km mark, and that lady wasnt wearing long tights either, so helen is out. will say hi next time if i bump into the sgrunners.

why not? there are quite a lot of 18 weeks training plan for a marathon. to complete it is not impossible for somebody like u. but to say do a sub 4, then it will be a question mark.

    • Agree with you. I believe people who pull these stunts are only a small handful and they are non-elites runners. 
    • Run for Heroes 2020 All it takes is for you to run, walk or dance a distance of 1km to show your support and gratitude!Upon completion of your run, you will receive two wristbands - one for yourself and the other will be sent to a frontliner with a personalised message of thanks from you as a tangible show of gratitude.Come join us from today until 8 August to show our support as one Singapore! (info - https://www.runforheroes.sg/)                  
    • Actually, one of the things I always look forward to in coming over for SCSM would be carboloading at some hawker stall. Once, after asking for a sixth order of rice, the uncle who owned the place just exclaimed  "哇!!!" (Waah!) 🤣 The only problem is that there always seems to be new construction constantly in Singapore. One place I ate at before was already closed with a new building being built over it the next time I came back, so its hard to have a favorite place to eat.
    • Now, what I'm going to say next may be a somewhat unpleasant topic among runners, but the reality is that among fellow athletes.... there are some who cheat. 🤔  Although this has been minimized now in modern races with timing mats/chips and vigilant marshalls on the course, in less sophisticated events, some dishonest runners take shortcuts, surreptitiously exchange bibs with a faster runner somewhere along the course (so their times come out better), and in one ultra, board their support vehicle when they think nobody is looking, then get off 10-20km later down the road! I don't know what goes on in the mind of those dishonest people who later claim their finisher shirts and medals just so they can brag on their social media accounts of something they did not rightfully accomplish. They are only fooling themselves. They may be actually very few in number, but if they are so thick skinned to be able to do that in a real race, how much more in a virtual one based on an honesty system? They may have  rode a bycycle, or used roller skates/ a skateboard for all we know! IMHO, that is why a medal/finisher shirt from an actual race will always command more respect and honor amongst us runners than that from a virtual one.    
    • I agree. Crossing the finish line at SCSM by analogy, would be like earning a diploma from NUS, while a virtual run on the other hand, would be like getting a certificate of some online course from some shady internet school. You may have truly done the coursework and gained the appropriate learning in both cases, but when you present your documents to a potential employer, the former will be solid proof of your accomplishment and hard work compared to the latter.
