Just a few toughts after this brutal run #strongstrongwind #melbmara

Humm, as I'm comfortably sitting enjoying some drinks. I'll soon reflect on this race. I love reviewing what happen pre - post and during the race. For that one, I was not ready for this type of wind. It felt too often like running without moving. Negative emotions and quitting thoughts were rolling thru my minds. I could't stop thinking of stoppin

In the Moment Melbourne Marathon windy gutsy race condition, why it matters #MelbMara

The Day, the famous day where you finally get to run. So many things can go wrong on that day. I've experienced many, too many I think. In 2010, 2 days before Kelowna Marathon, I was struck with a gastroenteritis, no way I could run. Before NYC 2014, I broke my Calcaneus bone and was in a cast for 6 weeks, worse, had not recovered enough to start t

Thailand long run #Thai #Krabi #tiger

As you know by now, I'm getting ready for the Melbourne Marathon. Sunday's long run are starting to be longer and longer, and therefore more demanding. Quite Challenging if the high heat and humidity stays the same as I've seen in the past few weeks. Luckily, this weekend I've evaded the city skyline of Singapore to get closer to beaches, nature an

Last prep run #4k, the day before the 42 click

Early Saturday morning, on a bright cold crisp overly windy blue sky day, I did my last practice run before enjoying the race. A, for some strange reason, difficult run in Melbourne. Yes, the wind is heavy and strong, and yes it sucks, but again, I'm used to challenges and I'll suck it up. Always do and always will. Feeling some ache from the Red-E

February 26th 2017 Location: Tokyo, Japan Event: Tokyo Marathon Ahhhh pressure, it can be your biggest allied, but also your worst nightmare. There's 2 ways to react under pressure, one is to thrive, the other to struggle. Pressure has this subtle way to interact with the body and the mind. It plays with your emotions, which in return, interferes w

Taper Time #MelbMara

Hey fellow strangers, it's been a while, staying away from my blog, not good. This is a great tool to remain focus. 12-16 weeks of training is very long. You have to keep up the moral. Let's recap a bit, here how it goes, I've been training very hard in the past three months. Well, at least it felt very hard. Numerous blisters, multiple skin chaffi

Finally landed in Melbourne Australia #melbmara

Just can't believe I'm writing this blog from Melbourne Australia. 24 hours ago, I was in office in Singapore, still working, prior to a late evening flight relaying Melbourne from Singapore. From Canada, it seems closer than it really is, actually, flying distance is just about 7 hours. There's also 3 hours timezone difference. Flying a red eye fl
