Over 10,000 full marathon participants all pumped to go. It was amazing to see such a overwhelming participation in a country of just 3 million people.
What's with Kenyans? I don't know how they run @ 20 kms an hour for 2 hours at a stretch. Here is Amos Tirop Matui of Kenya who came first @ 2:14:59, a record for Singapore Marathon. He clocked 23:39 @ 7.6 km, 1:06:43 @ 21K, 1:27:04 @ 27.38k and 2:14:59 @ 42.195)
And here is yours truly racing to the finish line as the 2667th. My official timing was 5:14:53 at the finish line. I clocked 47:02 @ 7.6km, 2:26:41 @ 21.0km, 3:20:03 @ 27.38km and 5:14:53 @ 42.195)
