Photos: Running 10km in the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore
The 10km flag-off in the SCMS 2016 was delayed from 6.45am to 7am.
But I didn't start until 7.30 as the 12,000 10km runners were flagged off in waves. I was a few waves behind.
It was the first time I joined the Standard Chartered Marathon, albeit in the 10km category
It was also the first time I took part in an event where a runner died.
I didn't find out about it until I reached home.
That's like the third Singapore-related running death in three months.
Singaporean Max Woon, 36, died in a fall while training for the Mount Kinabalu International Climbathon in Malaysia in October.
Singaporean Syed Mohamed Yusof, 37, died from cardiac arrest at the Bintan Reebok Spartan Race last month.
And today, British national John Gibson, 29, died at the Singapore marathon.
All guys under 40.
See you at the finish line.
