Hi runners,


 Nurses often “walk the extra mile” for patients. To care for patients with terminal illnesses, an Assisi Hospice nurse has to walk 12 km per day. This Nurses’ Day, show your appreciation to nurses by walking or running! For every 100km covered, a $100 voucher which can be redeemed for shoes will be gifted to an Assisi nurse by adidas Singapore. All Assisi nurses will receive a $100 voucher each for Nurses’ Day when we reach the collective goal of 15,000km.

 Sign up now for “I Race for Nurses” at web.42race.com/race-bundle/iracefornurses to walk/run a total of 12km, 21km, 50km or 250km from 1-31 July, anywhere and anytime at your convenience. You can choose to take part as an individual or form a team of up to 5 people with your friends. Entry is free and the top 100 individuals and top 20 teams with the longest distances will win a Finisher’s Medal.

 To go the extra mile to support the work of our nurses, start a fund-raising campaign page at giving.sg/assisi-hospice/i_race and rally your family and friends to support the cause! Funds raised will provide care and comfort to patients with terminal illnesses and their families.

1. Visit Lady Ice in London and run the London Marathon there.

2. Hold on to it and try to get a slot for a physical run somewhere that Aegean Airlines would fly to before May next year.

Is there a Aegean Airline office here in Singapore to redeem your free ticket?

    • We shall be ending in 3 days... having committed to 700km... Just sharing on the perspective as an ultra runner and how "monthly mileage" helps...LACTOSE THRESHOLD...         LACTOSE THRESHOLD is not about "being how lian" or "being smug about leaderboard"...it is about staying discipline, be consistent in daily mileage according to Target mileage [weekly/monthly], lots of patience with proper REST and RECOVERY, and must be at a perpetual state of "injury-free" status at all times... Giving up...Fatigue, Pain and Hurts are always there...Weather Condition...Day/Night...Career Commitment...when there is a better priority in life, then why commit to LT? Another Life-Time experience for uncle while we enter into "Covid-19" Endemic - Covid-19 regularly found among particular people or in a certain area - from June 21, 2021. Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Stay LT (Long Term) in Runs...😄      
    • Singapore Athletics nominates Soh Rui Yong for 2021 SEA Games. Will he get to go? https://themonitor.sg/2021/06/14/singapore-athletics-nominates-soh-rui-yong-for-2021-sea-games-will-he-get-to-go/ Reality check: However, whether he gets the nod to travel and represent Singapore would still be reliant on the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC ) selectors, and if the SEA Games takes place at all. Said Soh, “I started training for the 1500m this year for the first time in eight years because we haven’t been able to travel for marathons since last year, and we haven’t had any marathons held locally.

    • 1. I think it would look good on SNOC if they decide to show graciousness and put the past behind them - SRY already did anyway, and made amends with the new SA committee. There isn't any negative news surrounding SRY for the past 2 years too, as he seems like he stopped competitive running for a while. I don't see any reason not to accept the nomination based on merit. That said, I am slightly disappointed that he is not going for a marathon anymore. He was sort of a motivational figure to me and inspire to go for more marathons when he was the SEA games champions in 2015 and 2017. 2. I believe the eventual consensus would be to agree to let Vietnam postpone the game to next year, when the Covid situation should be more or less stabilized already after most of us are vaccinated. Like the Olympics or Euro cup, not likely that these sports events get cancelled. But I am a little amused that Singapore actually step forward to volunteer to host the game if Vietnam is unable to, always the "ostentatious" image that our government wants to portray to our neighbours...
