February is Marathon Month

Thursday, 4 February 2010  |  Bullish Insights

February is marathon month in my life. I’m running Condura 42k this Sunday and Standard Chartered Hong Kong 42k on February 28.  (I know, I shouldn’t be doing it, but a bulls gotta do what a bull wants to do!)

For the past few months I’ve been living in denial.  Excited but more nervous about what I signed myself up for.  Today, after I picked up my race kit at Condura, there was no more denying that this is all for real and that Condura is a mere four days away!

At the Condura race kit redemption, I was one of the first ones who showed up to claim my Condura race kit.  Registration opened at 3:00PM and I was there at 3:05. (Talk about excited eh?)


– Hot hot hot! By tomorrow, more tents will be set up –

– We distributed free TBR Magazines at redemption tables. Hope you get a copy! Warning: they quickly run out –

It was extremely hot. The lines were slightly long when I was there.  But, fortunately, I heard from Ton and Patrick Concepcion that, by tomorrow, they will put up 30 more tents aside from the 30 currently onsite and deploy a total of 150 people to ensure that race kit redemption will be quick and hassle-free.

When I got home, with my race kit in hand, guess what greeted me: My Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon certificate!  Love it!


So, forget about Valentine’s Day.  February is marathon month in my home.
