Prison Yellow Ribbon run 2013

Photo Credits: Run Society15 September 2013 – I signed up for Yellow Ribbon Prison Run ’13 for the very fact that it would have presented me with a second chance, if I had botched up my SUB40 10k attempt after 5 tries (Jurong Lake Run, KOTR, ST Run, AHM, & POSB).

After the POSB run, I had to refocus my energies on training for my IPPT. Yes, you would think that I would have no problems clearing my IPPT, but in actuality, I do. I have never been a talented jumper, & SBJ somehow always manages to present me with a predicament.

I am not proud to say that I only managed a silver in my midweek attempt in the IPPT, missing the mark by a mere 4cm. But as you know, that 4cm would cost me alot. The 0 extra incentive is nothing compared to the pride of wearing the badge proudly on one’s No.4 uniform knowing that you are of GOLD standard.

Hence, during the lead up to this race all the way till I was standing at the Start line, I could feel my ITB was still quite tight even after warming up.

Before the race, I went in with the mentality of just heading to the Start line & run without pressure, as I already broke my PB & SUB40k goal.Photo Credits: Run Society During my warmup, could see many Kenyans doing their warmups too, & Gurkhas just hanging out in front. I knew the Kenyans would come in approx. 32mins & the Gurkhas in 35mins, so I definitely had no chance of a Top10 finish, which reinforced my notion of not racing for position, rather a risk adverse come-out-in-one-piece mentality.

Saw a few familiar faces arriving & doing their warm-ups out in front, which included Ramesh, Vivian Tang, Tony Seakins. Vivian, whom I ran alongside before in Jurong Lake Run back in July was a welcomed sight as I knew she was always doing SUB40s & seemingly like a pace guide if you want to hit that time.

I was lined up in the third row, just behind the Gurkhas, but I knew that I was going to follow my own strategy of starting conservatively & finishing strong.
