Back from Singapore Half Marathon!

Monday, 8 December 2008  |  Race Reports


What an amazing experience!  I’m limping, I’m tired, and I missed my family terribly but I am still on cloud nine over the Singapore Marathon.  

I finished with an official time of 2:08, 196th out of 3,044 female runners in the half marathon category.  Not something to do cartwheels over, but considering my knee gave me hell starting at Km8 until the finish, I’m pretty proud of myself for surviving one of the toughest physical and mental challenges I’ve ever undergone.

Big congratulations to my Singapore roomie, Annie, who broke her marathon PR with  an official time of 3:59, she was 67th out of 1,998 female runners.  

Congrats to Coach Rio who finished 1:24  for his half marathon, which placed him at 12th for the men’s category and 3rd in his age category.  Galing!

I promise to write more tomorrow—as soon as I get down from this Singapore high…
