Singapore Marathon 2008

Singapore Marathon 2008

I am frustrated. I am depressed. I need something to look forward to.

So I took the plunge and registered for Singapore Marathon 2008.

It might sound like no big deal to you, but for someone like me, it is. My best record was 7 k.m. completed on a gym treadmill under 1.5 hours.

Common sense prompted me not to register for the 42.5 k.m. full marathon.

In any case, the mere thought of running 10 k.m. under 90 minutes with 30,000+ runners scare the living shit out of me. I need to train. I need to diet. I need to be prepared.

And I need to know if anyone wants to run with me.

    @ Chris – Like I said, wait till I am at least 50% confident before I can start training with a pro like you! :)

    @ Jessie – Relax by the poolside? You must be referring to the One George Street and One Raffles Quay outlets. I am not that high-class. AMK Hub is the one for me :P

    @ yin – It is not too late to sign up! Go and register, then share with me your training plan!

  9. whee! actually, should be the other way around. you’re far more motivated than me to work out! i barely squeeze enough time in to run as of late.

    @ yin – I will always share my training plan here. Motivated or not, I don’t know, but I need the exercise!
