Distressing News

At about noon today, I received a distressing SMS which reported that one of the club's top woman marathoner, Jenny Lim, had been struck down by a car and was in serious condition. Apparently she'd been running around the Section 17 area and was heading towards the KLGCC when the accident happened. I've no further information for now except that she came out of surgery about 2pm just now and is in stable condition. Her hip bone was fractured and there was internal bleeding. Another surgery has been scheduled next week.

Coupled with Justin's report about his encounter with bad traffic, this is a timely, if jolting, reminder to exercise extreme caution when running out there. Another danger zone is the Duta-IRB junction where extensive road works are on-going.

Jenny, a veteran of 43 marathons, is a tough lady and we pray that she once again calls up her unquestioned strength and recover soon.

  • Pray that Jenny will recover very soon and back to running again. For those who wish to donate his/her blood, you may do so at the UH as the replacement for Jenny. For us who are fortunate to be able to run, be alert while running.
