please +Join sgRunner @ Race Roster, why not consider the Last Leg ...longer distance...

uncle shall be starting Leg 1 of sgRunner in 20 hours..

Uncle, this year I run shorter distances. Taking it as 'recovery year'. In fact nowadays i run no more than than 4 km. The longest distance I ran this year is the Safari Zoo Run of 12 km 😅

As for team sgrunner, I hope @beast & @AutumnRunner will take part too. If not, some other runners can take the empty slots too. It will be more fun if we have 6 different runners for the 6 segments. And each runner will only do his/her segment after the previous one is completed. This will give us the feel of a 'relay'.

Team sgRunner will proceed as long as those who responded, just take part lah, @starfinder...register your interest,  just like when we were once here, remember....

so, just do this for yourself...forget about 'relay' of 6 persons feel...just be happy about what this Ekiden spirit is all about...Team and Bonding...

complete Team sgRunner...whoever wants to do...including @beast or @AutumnRunnervery sporting sgRunners and great bros...👍..of course, they also had been invited after their completion, the option to continue with Team sgRunner...

anyway, this is a backup Team, it was offered, but none has ever taken..so uncle has told @Lady Ice, just like at Covid 19 Challenges... we just proceed...don't need think about the rest of them...we are committed to continue..

Team sgRunner shall be completed daily from today (Friday)...just register...we just do it for ourselves...committed and with the spirit of Team sgRunner2020 and Team sgRunner...that's all...😀

so, @starfinder, Leg 2 is 5K, and @Lady Ice Leg 3 is 10K...

Uncle shall be starting Leg 1 and Leg 5, ...and if nobody take up/register on Sunday....uncle shall simply complete all remaining legs daily...

because this is a backup Team, which is because it was never filled-up with 6...as Team sgRunner....result of the team performance and achievement shall not be publicized here...

Interestingly...because of Covid-19, technology has make Virtual Race/Challenges Registration FOC, Online Events can be organised DIY, and Events can be made to offer to Friends and Teams..even Team events need not to be filled up with Full Members...exceptionally new normal...yet you can Run against Self Challenge with Motivation, with Groups [Friends], and with the Elites of the World...😀

good news, if anyone who have missed this opportunity...and would like to try...

Team SgRunnersUnited (Mixed) is ready...to start next Thursday...uncle shall be in the Last Leg 6...

newbf8cd472d496844c.jpg

Respond here...learn how...

Rule #1: Everyone must use Runkeeper apps.

Rule #2: Every member must be seen in the Runkeeper apps, trying out or shown with activities of walk/run before the Virtual Race.

Don't miss this bonding opportunity and please don't tell uncle that sgRunners, there is no more Real Runners in this forum...but talk like as though you run virtually...

but if you are actually not...then take this ekiden virtual race (1 session) as challenge...

Ekiden-2020.jpg

btw, @starfinder, two more 10KM Challege spots for you to consider...and please lah, don't make uncle complete Team sgRunnersUnited as Ekiden Marathon Challenge for "SCSM Grand Finale"...which if uncle should do so...that will be uncle's 4th Marathon Attempt for Nov...of which, 3 are Marathon Virtual Race (1-session)... 😲

@kohpapaUpdate on my side:

1) I downloaded the Runkeeper app but for some reason I cannot login, so I can't use the app.

2) I was able to import a previous run from another running app to Runkeeper online. Are you able to see my activity?

3) There is a section on "races" from Runkeeper online, but it says I am not registered to any runs.

4) I will try to import my 7.2km run tonight online and let's see if it is able sync to at your end to indicate that I have completed the leg. If not, then I will try to troubleshoot the Runkeeper app again over this weekend and if I can resolve the login issue, I will try to run with the 7.2km run again next Tuesday evening using the Runkeeper app.

5) If I can solve the technical issues with Runkeeper online/app, I can take on another leg for Team sgRunner (Mixed) next week.

let me check it out...we at Runkeeper can see you did this...

yes8f991efc363c9223.md.jpg

yes, maybe you never login to your app from mobile...

so you must first login...at your desktop (checked)

https://runkeeper.com/home

and then login to your mobile to you app (check if there is technical issues)...resolve next week

@beast, you need not need to finish Team sgRunner2020 if you are not prepared...anytime anyplace...next week is fine...

because we have a backup team..Team sgRunner... so meaning you may not join us for this one due to Runkeeper...then let see if we can have those who are confident and ready to complete...Team sgRunner (Mixed)...now with @Lady Ice and I in 10km... there are 2 slots for takers...anyone of Team sgRunner2020 wants to take one of the 2 slots...by Monday, if no takers, uncle will complete so that we want a Team Result for 42K against the World's Elites...and as uncle has said, we are top 100 because we ran our best, and we are United as One.

Team sgRunnersUnited... is meant to be...if more can participate, and if you want to do again...for the better time or longer distance...there are still Virtual Race (5 session) waiting for you.....this one will be set for next Thursday - Sunday...our sgRunners' version of Ekiden Marathon Challenge for "SCSM Grand Finale" 😀

please let us know after monday evening, otherwise...uncle shall complete all available legs..and end Team sgRunner...with a Team's result..

Team sgRunner shall not be the official team, because when Team sgRunner2020 has any technical issues...we don't want anyone to wait...we just simply carry on...which is why....because of Covid-19, we have the technology that allows race to carry on, even without having actually to complete or even to form Full Team, and yet we can continue with another one...no DNF...no DNQ...shoik right? 

Team sgRunner, we commence today...in 1 hour...Uncle shall complete Leg 1 (5km)...all Team members shall be alerted on uncle's Activity Finished at Runkeeper, and the Next Segment Virtual Runner shall be alerted by the mobile...👌

Thanks @kohpapafor clarifying that my leg is done. When I completed it, it wasn't reflected under our team status as completed, even though the app recognizes me for finishing it. So I guess you did something on your side to reflect the completion. Now we await Autumn to finish it up on Sunday.

I have accepted your invite that you sent previously and I believe I am registered as running the last leg of TeamsgRunner. I will run this next Tuesday/Wednesday.

everything you do in activities such as your mobile  is synced and connected to Race Roster (remember your technical issues?)...Sports Heroes (SCSM Virtual Club) are reflected in Team Runkeeper...shared...

connected.jpg

and after the Ekiden race, please you can remove your privacy matters from all Friends

remove.jpg

so uncle also know that all this time, you are not connected to SCSM Virtual Club...

now that you are synced and connected to Sport Heroes...you can register for AR and VR...

of course, you can always check uncle's individual ranking...

chong.jpg

on sunday...with the STGR Marathon Virtual Race (15 Nov - 15 Dec)..uncle intend to do 1 session...so uncle follows Ekiden Format with 20 mins rest...10k-6k-6k-6k-10k-6k...about 44km...submission only by Strava App...

abuthen.. if uncle wants the data to reflect on Runkeeper...yes, I can export to Runkeeper...or I can run with Runkeeper App..concurrently...

and the Team members can also see uncle's attempt..

then let all see uncle's individual ranking chong to top 100 @ SCSM Virtual Club at Sport Heroes platform after that...😀

Lastly, as Captain and registration/creation of events, uncle also was informed...

@beast, you have joined member to Team sgRunner...

@Lady Ice, you have joined member to Team sgRunnersUnited...

Welcome to Technology...DIY, FOC, Code Only with Invitation, and uncles takes the role as Race sub-organizer on behalf of World Ekiden 2020 Race...so you see...@LadyIce , you can also create your own Teams and invite your Friends...and @Beast you are taking part in an international virtual race FOC...only thing is no medal, no tee, no bib, no cert, no e-badge...but results of your achievement...and enjoy great bonding and friendship as Teams...

so question...how much money did you spend on your virtual race?...zero for administration...but you spend time and money on your preparation for your virtual race...so what is the relevance of race organizers in Covid-19?  do we really need them as new norms?

actually uncle frank reply, "who really need race organizer and pay them $$$ after all these years...and get crappy support...hydration not enough...entitlements so lousy quality..."

btw, are you happy of uncle's service...especially technical support on that "apps issues"...you have never registered from your mobile...with Race Roster syncing with Runkeeper lah! 😄

hahaha - okay done - this time I take the first leg so my numbers are 1, 2, 3 😛 

uncle has noticed that the placement of Leg 1 (5km) runner is often the strongest and fastest...so you deserved to be in Leg 1...Team sgRunnersUnited

We have hoped to have Thurs-Sun next week to commence...so everyone will now...take a break...after recovery run with Team sgRunner....if no one takes up Leg 4 (5K) by Monday...uncle completes Team results by finishing Leg 4...

Uncle, my timing for 10 km will be much slower as this year I focus on only short runs, though completing a 10 km is not an issue. Just hope my timing will not drag the team down.

I will leave the 10 km slots for other keen runners. If no one is taking up by Monday, I will take up one of the slots.

we now have 3 Teams...

Team sgRunner2020, Team sgRunner and Team sgRunnersUnited...

we hope all 3 can be in top 100...

so don't worry @starfinder... just attempt a 10KM...a challenge for you...and maybe @beast, challenge to take the other 10KM...an upgrade also from 7.195KM...

and again, the other 2 slots..by Thursday onwards...anyone wants to take extra...or if even @AutumnRunner wants to continue with us (there is no obligation...we are open to everyone...

surely @Lady Ice and I can always take 2 or even 3 slots leftover...

good early morning [SG Time]...Ekiden Marathon Virtual Run will end Nov 22...so let's us make use of the opportunity with the FREE digital platform of Ekiden [free by ASICS]...enjoy the flexibility of "Real Run" which is made Possible by Technology within Groups of Friends..even during Covid-19 when social distancing measures can be taken...remotely..independently..and challenges can also be taken...Longest Run....Fastest Run...in 2020....

    • everyone has their own goal and aspiration... of course, motivation is same as running in a race...how do you feel to run "slower in distance" while many runners chong "faster in distance" than you...they sure feel "smug" of enduring and faster while you will feel "smug" less with fatigue and slowness... uncle admires @autumnrunner because he had injury last year in 2020, and he has shown the interest to pick up where he left off...and we know he wants to make a comeback...and we must respect all who can and those who need to be motivated and comeback in 2021...for 2020 has been a "washout" year for all... from knowing @autumnrunner... he has been always a great endurance runner (talented)...having being overseas marathons (has shared of great experiences from his blogs), and uncle is sure, he can make a comeback during Covid-19 in 2021... running quantity is a great sure way to build the foundation for a better quality in endurance running capability... so @autumrunner... you can make a greater comeback with uncle (sharing with challenges in Virtual Races/Challenges, and some are affordable)...and don't forget, if there should be a Team Relay Marathon Event (virtual or physical run), you should be ready to say "Yes". right? Leaderboard motivation is "not smugly" way to show off... in fact, that is an intrinsic motivation with the "mind" of unlimited distance more than the "physical" of achieving the impossible distance...that is, if everyone can do it, why not, challenge yourself...use "mind over physical".. uncle got to motivate Team sgRunners too..."why not!"...in the Team Events (Ekiden and Global Cross-Country Virtual Race)..."even if we were never be the Elites!"...but we did it!...like the Elites!!...by Just Do Your Very Best!!! Btw, uncle has invited (private chat) Sandy (thread starter) to join us for 10KM Team Relay to see if she is able to join a Team...perhaps, @autumnrunner will you want to join us as Team Member, if are you ready. The Global Cross Country 10KM Team Relay has been extended 31 May. 10KM for Sandy is great enough distance for her...no need what 1680KM challenge...with 100 members...that is what the organizer wants...profit with quantity participation....but you DIY and sponsor in your runs..haha.. Uncle has once (with Lady Ice) invited privately with weeks of running recruitment drives/chat groups to almost ALL in this forum for Global 10KM Virtual Race for Team Members, and respecting why you didn't respond, and accepting reasons why you cannot participate. "Have not been running lately". That was in February. So what is today, May? If you are keen and ready, you are invited. Just PM uncle. When is the best time to pick up running for Physical Run races, because Covid-19 seems to be not over, and already we are moving on to the 2nd Anniversary of Covid-19, with the current knowledge that there is a new variant that is even more infectious. When all races (mass events) are cancelled because of Covid-19 in 2020. Uncle had just received from Singapore Athletics that this month's Local Race (Run Competition) for Pre-SEA Games Selection will have to be cancelled due to tighter Covid-19 measures. First time in 2021. July will be the likely date as announced on their run calendar.  Don't stop your brisk walking, jogging or running activities. Try try any distance...do 1KM..2KM..5km...50km....500km....5000km...clocked them with your running app...daily, weekly or monthly for those who are able...just move on according to your "smugly" ability. "Dubious" running activities are for those who are Riding/Skate Boarding/PMD...just remember to set these activities as "Riding" mode on your Running App and not "Running" records.  All of you, once you were able to do HM and FM during the normal days of Pre Covid-19, so don't stop believing that you can't do these distances during Covid-19. To sgRunnerTeam members who did 10KM Team Relay with Uncle, can you stretch beyond 10KM and run Xtra distance than 10KM...16KM is the great wall of china for HM...Challenge yourself to break it (that took uncle weeks) and surely you will be motivated with a HM Virtual Race/Challenge like the 2XU 21K RUN aka CHALLENGE (6 Max Times Challenge). Otherwise, look for Overseas Virtual "smugly" ones..some come with nice race packs and great medals too...you must earn them as both intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. "Smugly", if uncle could do HM, FM or Ultra Challenge, why can't you. 😄 Suely @autumrunner is already a "smug" believer of Virtual Races/Challenges, Just Go for it! Anyone "smug" enough to join uncle for any Virtual Race/Challenge, just PM uncle.  
    • Don't have to compare what you can accomplish with others.  We all lead very different lives, and some people have more time to do what they are passionate about, others not so much. If you only have time to run 50km a month, that's good also. If you can run 500km a month, fantastic, but that's not a bragging right because those who can't clock as much mileage as you do have other more important commitments in life. Life is unfair like that, but that's how the way it goes. Most importantly is to have some time out to stay healthy. Be it 500km or 50km a month. Don't have to feel bad clocking a lower mileage, or feel smug clocking a higher mileage than others.
    • Maybe uncle shares quantity of runs for monthly, weekly and daily in 2021... on the Leaderboard "Challenge"...you shall start to see 10K+ participants joining for end-of-the-month.. you will notice... uncle is "catching" the top participants...mere HM and FM efforts to catch them...while almost 7,000 are "chasing" uncle... since uncle was previously ranked 3rd in April, so you will notice that for the month of May, uncle will be ranked negatively or postively from the absolute "3rd" position... Those that has sudden risen to the Top 10, look at the +1K or +308, uncle shall place these participants as "dubious", and will "monitor" and expect them if they will be still be competitive in May. They must be consistent, like uncle, otherwise, they are simply "flute" cases...meaning on non-run activities such as biking or boarding... This is a just silly "competitive" daily tasks that uncle enjoys, motivation to why HM and FM efforts are the best runs to remain in Top 10 always. Another one is uncle's calendar for May...besides FM Virtual Races...  now you can see... uncle must chong another 450KM from today to make the challenge "700KM" in May 21 a reality. You say you can do, show the results that you can do, complete and finish the "700KM" Monthly Challenge you can do...and sustain the "3rd Position" in April to be also "3rd Position" in May...because uncle will be disappointed to see "RED -ve" that is all...as motivational "push" factor 😃 Update: uncle just recollected in 2020...reported this on the eve of 2020... consistency...determination....perseverance...nothing is impossible.. so where is the top 3 participants of Dec 2020...especially Deric Lau...1660KM....dubiously, Missing In Action in 2021 
    • that OSIM chair for SOH's use as gaming chair.. Well-Being Chair...SOH's for healthy lifestyle...gaming.  
    • what a photo that you managed to find after i mentioned on the gaming chair,.... hahaha
