i believe the sundown runners will be doing their easy run and u-turn early ...

Tiwazz - is there an SG runners support table at the SDM tomorrow? If yes, can you tell me where? I will try and join after my marathon and may be several others here would too ...

there are no sgrunners support table at sundown...

but... some of us will be at carpark F2 all the way (till our last supported 84km runner run pass us)...

hopefully u guys will still be there when i ran pass... this would means that i need to run faster than your last supported 84km runner...

I am interested in the run and I am new to the club. Can I join you all for the run?

do come and join us. More information on the first page of this thread

like tiwazz mention, those that did sundown will u-turn early, whereas the rest head over to indoor stadium.

If tigger is still not hopping like a jumping tigger then, will like to go helix bridge for a look.

Tiwazz - is there an SG runners support table at the SDM tomorrow? If yes, can you tell me where? I will try and join after my marathon and may be several others here would too ...

tigger didn't see you...only manage to see aeroscan and roonz on the runway...and auron(at the ending point carpark).

I cant thank Tiwazz and the other helpful SGRunner supporters manning a station there (i think it was at the 14km mark) - it really does make a difference when you are met with words of encouragement and ice cold ribena slushies!! The next event i am not running, i most definitely would like to help out at a support station myself.

Tigger - I saw you from my cab when i was riding back (you were in white compression tights on the top right?), i think it was about 500m from the finish line.

I know a lot has been said about the mismanagement of the SDM day before - if they had got their logistics planning right, everything else (atleast the important stuff) would have fallen in place.

Don't mind me asking, will there be a place to put our bags?

Hino - there will be baggage deposit in some of the runners' cars there. Just as a friendly suggestion, do scroll up the forum man (you had asked this question before and it was answered before as well ... :) ) and most importantly, read the first post of this thread. You will get other questions answered as well.

Thanks - truthfully, the only thought from the 9km mark onwards was to reach you to pitstop before thinking of any further distance. I actually despaired a bit when i didnt find you and the guys at 12km, thinking i had missed the station!!

About the return leg, hardly going strong. I think i did injustice to my 3 months of training by not adequately resting on Fri / Sat just before the race. Plus the 5km walk to the starting line didnt help much either. I was alright for the first 8kms going at my planned pace of 9kph .. and then suddenly all hell broke lose! Feeling weak a bit and also like i was running with lead legs. After that couldnt ever get back on track .. and hobbled all the way to the end until the 40th km. There i saw that if i could run a strong 2.2kms, i could finish under 6 hours, which spurred me on (ran a 6:20 pace for the last 2.2kms) and finished in 5:59:16. During the last 10-12kms or so, i had a lot of trouble warding off sleepiness. Sat at several shelters along the changi coast road and closed my eyes to get a few seconds of shuteye, and then kept going on my way. And to rub it in, just one week before, I set my 10k PR at the Passion Run in a 0:55 time and was thinking "This is a good sign for the Sundown Marathon" ..

My cumulative splits were 1:10 for 10km, 2:40 for 20km, 4:04 for 30km and 5:59 for the 42.2km. :rolleyes2:

I am disappointed at not having done better, but am most definitely gonna work towards being much better prepared for my next biggie! 8)

yes, tigger was in white top/black bottom...both cwx compression materials.

Many of us complains much of SD logistic. Tigger find it decent though. You cannot expect the event to be incident free.

If complains about bad management, tigger have experience worst. If speaking about world class event, there is none in local context that even be comparable to the best out there.

Moderate our expectation as in everything in life. It will be much easy to expect some fallout and enjoy a good race.

Hope weather is good for run today!!

    • 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
