OK, That Wasn't My Last Post

So OK, the previous post was not my last one. The Singapore Marathon website has just been updated! If you're running it this Sunday, do check the site out. Some updates include the following:

- Powergels will be distributed at the 30K mark!
- Isotonics served (every 6K) is 100 Plus (hopefully it's the non-carbonated version or at least pre-opened to let out the gas). Water stations serving Ice Mountain are at every 2K

And it'll be nice if this chick will be cheering me home


Now for a bit of corny stuff. The Disney cartoon Hercules was a dud but the lyrics of the theme song is powerful and is relevant to the challenge that lies (especially for marathon newbies) ahead this Sunday morning.

Go the Distance

I have often dreamed
Of a far off place
Where a hero's welcome
Would be waiting for me
Where the crowds will cheer
When they see my face
And a voice keeps saying
This is where I'm meant to be

I'll be there someday
I can go the distance
I will find my way
If I can be strong
I know ev'ry mile
Will be worth my while
When I go the distance
I'll be right where I belong

Down an unknown road
To embrace my fate
Though the road may wander
It will lead me to you
And a thousand years
Would be worth the wait
It may take a lifetime
But somehow I'll see it through

And I won't look back
I can go the distance
And I'll stay on track
No I won't accept defeat
It's an uphill slope
But I won't lose hope
Till I go the distance
And my journey is complete

But to look beyond the glory is the hardest part
For a hero's strength is measured by his heart

Like a shooting star
I can go the distance
I will search the world
I will face its harms
I don't care how far
I can go the distance
Till I find my hero's welcome
Waiting in your arms...

I will search the world
I will face its harms
Till I find my hero's welcome
Waiting in your arms...
