Me and my running:-
Why do I run?
Running – Being the oldest member of this heroic 6, I been running all my life, running away from things 🙂 Used to detest exercise never pass my IPPT in the army. Always giving excuses not to run. I guess it all ended at 39yrs old after reflecting on my life in the next 20 years. With my weak knees due to being overweight. I don’t want to be and old man with a walking stick and bad health.
I want a healthier life and doing things that always procrastinate about. I wanted to be an Ironman.. that started my running journey
Why do I want to complete a marathon?
Like all the rest I have never run a marathon I have done a lot of 10s and two 21s and normally 5km run are like short runs the most I ran was 24km it was a fun run. I did enjoy it just that I hate loops. Completing a marathon is a milestone for me. I would need to do a marathon in an Ironman as well. This will be a bench mark for me.
What is my goal for the Sundown Marathon?
I hope I do not need to stop at all for this Sundown my target timing is about 5hrs. If less even better.
What do I hope to gain through Project42, other than running?
1. Complete a marathon – with the advise I get from Allen and QiuLu
2. Setting a training target and actually completing it.
3. Making good friends sharing information
What is my impression of Project42?
I thought that this project42 was a gym that sells marathon packages to runners in Singapore plus giving them training thru workshops etc. I didn’t know it was run by youth! I am totally impress with their spirit.
This old man will try his best to complete this marathon Journey with you guys. I may not be fast but I would always want to challenge myself to improve my timing, with your help I know can.
