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...
