Recently, I posted about receiving my first virtual run medal from Conqueror challenges. I was impressed with the quality of the medals that I received and soon signed up for more challenges. A couple of days ago, I received my second medal after completing 42Km of walking and running. It is none other than the... Continue Reading →

I bought the Apple Watch Series 5
So today on Christmas, I decided to walk into the Apple store at Orchard Road and came out with a brand new Apple Watch series 5. It was a spur of the moment thing. Previously when the series 5 watch was released in September, I actually pre-ordered it. But at the very last minute, I... Continue Reading →
Need to get my running mojo back
I have been running regularly for the past 5 years now. By running regularly, I mean to commit to running at least 3 times a week. Some days, I feel totally unmotivated to move my ass and to just go for a quick run. So sometimes, I fail at keeping to my thrice weekly running... Continue Reading →

One year on… and still running.
A year ago, I bought a pair of new running shoes, and started running 5km, 3 times a week, every week. Since then I have never stopped. March 16 marks the 1 year milestone since I started this habit. It has been a long journey. But I made it. I managed to keep true to... Continue Reading →

5 months in, and a new milestone
I hate running. But at the beginning of 2013, in April, I decided to buy a good pair of running shoes and tell myself to just run. Run regularly. Run 5KM every time I go out running. Around 5 months in, I hit an all new milestone. I was quite surprised that I had reached... Continue Reading →
Running. My new form of escape?
I wrote in a previous post that I recently started taking up running as a hobby. I never liked running, but decided to discipline myself to run at least every other day. Thats about 3 times a week for about half an hour. That is the optimal daily recommended amount of exercise to keep yourself... Continue Reading →
I realised that I did not write a New Year's resolution for 2013. But nonetheless, trying to stay fit and healthy is definitely in everyone's new year resolutions. I bought a new pair of running shoes, running shorts, and the free Runkeeper app to keep track of my running. I have started to form a... Continue Reading →
