The Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM), usually held every first Sunday morning of December, had its first ever night run this year. So was it better? Read to find out.
Considered as one of the most prestigious races in Asia, it has a Gold Race certification by the World Athletics (formerly IAAF) and is also bidding to become part of the World Marathon Majors by 2021.
Aside from the marathon last Saturday, November 30, other categories that transpired during the weekend included the kids’ dash, the half marathon, Toyota Ekiden, wheelchair elite marathon, and the 10k category.
It’s monsoon season again here in Manila! Yet many of us here are training hard for our respective races by the end of the year.
Despite the inclement weather, we are still more than happy to run on wet roads than to get bored running on treadmills. As a result, our running shoes get drenched in rainwater and become stinky the next morning.
Our running shoes need TLC such as regular cleaning especially if we are short in budget and have only one pair.
I have been a New Balance customer for ten years. It all started from the discounted pair I bought when I started running, which was a funky gold pair of New Balance 749. I tried a couple of direct competitors in between but I had to size up to fit my overpronating duck-wide feet. Those pairs didn’t last either. So, I kept on coming back to New Balance and never looked back.
On Christmas of 2016, I badly needed a lightweight stability running shoes to replace my failing pair of 870v4. So, I bought a black and pink pair of New Balance Vazee Prism at New Balance Bonifacio High Street boutique with a 40% discount but, it took me a few months before I started wearing it.
