U RUN + Vertical Climb

This is my first race in Singapore and NO I did not do the vertical climb. 

The race details:

Date:25 February 2012
Time: 8am
Location: Marina @ The Float Singapore

The race was not a fun one. I don't know why but it left me with a taste of disappointment at the end of the day.

The vertical climb category starts in waves, 10 minute apart I think. Starting in waves is so not right to me and in the middle of it they told us that further delay is required as there is a bicycle race going on near our place and is starting so we were ask to wait and let them go first. As a result my category that should have started at 8am end up starting later as well. 

Me and Nurman. Thanks dear
I also have issue starting at 8am. HOT!!! Singapore is hot and it is not helping when you start at 8, maybe next time they should start the race at 7am. 

There is 1 good thing about the race, every 2km there is a water station with no water shortage which sometimes happens in KL... water station with no water duhhh .....

Everything about the race is sooooo structure like there is no spontaneity so somehow the fun is like limited. I can't explain it there is no relax-ness in the race. I feel like a cattle in a cattle ranch being guided by fence and people. 

Oh well maybe the bigger races are better .....

Running Buddies - 2012 Race Schedule

Today I have decided to publish mine as well as my running buddies race schedules. As you can see the current total is 9 but it will surely grow as we are waiting for a few annual runs such as the Penang Bridge International Marathon, Siemens Run and the Malakoff KL Run ...... well at least I am ......

I will also be adding another 1 or 2 more runs that will be held in Singapore later on in the year.  Actually, I am quite looking forward to run with Angah again this July as Mak, Angah and her family have plan to visit us in Singapore.

This year I will be missing the Borneo International Marathon and Energizer Night Race in Sepang, just can't make the schedule work for me to include these 2 races. Oh well... maybe next year.

The colour code system for this race schedule is simple, just like the traffic light with the additional blue
  • No Color = Register to run
  • Red = Not Running
  • Yellow = Decided to run but have not register
  • Green = Completed the run
  • Blue = Have not decided to run
