This was an exciting year for me and Team FatBird on the running front, which saw the growth of the Team FatBird running community and various marathon training operations. I had a 'quiet' year in terms of race participation, as I officially ran in one 10km, 15km, 21km and 42km, Ultra-Marathon race each. However, the successes of Team FatBird Runners & Marathon Trainees more than rewarded me and the team with their many PBs and rave reviews. The following are key highlights of 2009 as we welcome 2010:
1. Launched Operation NightHawk, a 12-week night marathon training program for Sundown 2009 2. Successfully organized Operation Kingfisher, a 6-week half-marathon training program for the Singapore Bay run/Army Half Marathon (SBR/AHM). 3. Achieved my half marathon PB of 1hr40min at the AHM (with no specific training) 4. Participated in run-leading and marshaling for the various Nike Runs and Race Preparation Training 5. Getting Team FatBird involved in SCSM09 Run For A Cause by recruiting runners for charity, and offering free marathon training for RFAC participants, and getting rewarded with a most meaningful and rewarding experience. 6. Getting Team FatBird Pacers team appointed as official marathon pacers of SCSM09. participants to achieve their respective timing goals. We had a larger team of 50 Pacers this time. 7. Extended Team FatBird to manage and lead more I-Run sessions 8. Fielded Team FatBird Athletes in the NorthFace 100 Ultra-Marathon 9. Achieved my 10km PB of 44min at the Nike Human Race Run (without training as well) 10. Completed a most successful Operation Sunbird, a 12-week full marathon training program for SCSM 2009 11. Initiated and implemented the Run With Marathon Pacers Program 12. Made lots more new friends and running kakis 13. Enjoyed a whole year of injury-free running
