I've entered the half-marathon but injury (achilles) will probably prevent me running this year. My gf will be running the whole 42km and is aiming for less than 3 hours this year!!

I did the full marathon once two years ago, and then the registration fee was only S$12. Finished in 3.5 hours, ranked 43th in men's open group :D

But now they asking for S$50 (early birds) and S$75 (later registration) :eek: I can use that amount of money to buy a 67mm B+W filter. That's why I didn't register this year's marathon, but bought me another 67mm B+W filter :bsmilie:

I'll probably go there to shoot those runners on Sunday.

Cheers!

Yeah, I can run, not fast, but can run for a looonnngggg time. My best time for a full marathon is 3 hours 24 min :D I did that four years ago in L.A. California. ;)

I'd have joined this year's if the reg fee was lower than S$30.

Cheers!

so that's your girl, eh?

i barely overtook her with about 1km to go for the Army Half Marathon this year, she was confused when she asked me how much further it was to the finishing line :bsmilie:

she wants to crack 3 hours? uh, i think it's gonna be an uphill task. the AHM was like, late september, and she took about 1:41 (if i remember correctly), how can she finish TWICE the distance in under twice the time, remembering that it's another 21k thrown in?

nevertheless, all the best to her :)

p.s. i'm old already, only did a 3:16 back in 2000... :p
