Article by The Straits Times - "Seven Marathon Ways to Make Grandma Proud"

Singapore's main English-language daily, The Straits Times, carried an article about my recent 7th continent marathon, the Antarctic Ice Marathon, the realisation of my dream to run 7 marathons on 7 continents in honour of my late-grandmother and the fund-raising campaign for the elderly under the care of the Tsao Foundation, in its Monday 9 December 2013 print edition.

The online version of the article, including photos taken in Antarctica as well as a 5-min video of my experience running the Antarctic Ice Marathon, can be found here.  

 

To my family, friends and everyone out there, thank you for standing by me as I attempted what many of you thought was crazy/out of this world. The Antarctic Ice Marathon was tough but I was always safe in the hands of the excellent organisers (Polar Running Adventures & Adventure Network International) and in the company of a great bunch of fellow crazy runners from all around the world.

Big thanks also go to The North Face Singapore, Running Lab and Adidas for their support.

In this holiday/festive season, please do consider embracing the spirit of giving by donating to help the elderly under the care of the Tsao Foundation. Your donations can be made via the following link.

More updates and photos will be posted soon :)
