Hmm…seems that this little corner of the US/Singapore Running Blog Space has attracted quite a bit of attention in the last 12 hours, mostly thanks to comment in a thread on SGRunners.Com (thanks for the shout-out, sicklycat!). So for those of you who are new:
I promise you that this blog is a haze-free zone [for you non-locals, Singapore is experiencing a bit of a haze situation at the moment]. So grab yourself some water (I believe in good hydration habits), sit back, relax, and enjoy.
[Regular readers, you probably know most of what I’m about to say, so feel free to just stop back tomorrow for your regular dose of Holly Bloggy Goodness.]
Let’s start with some introductions: First of all, here’s a more formal About Me section, and here is a more casual collection of Holly Fun Facts. Secondly, here’s a bit about the guy who’s often
photo bombing joining me in my pictures. Third of all…since most of you are runners (or at least you like perusing running message boards), here are links to my race reports from all the local events I’ve run so far:
And yes, for those who have asked – I am indeed the same crazy ang moh who was out cheering during the Sundown Half-Marathon.
As far as other things I blog about (Food, Yoga, Motivational Posts, various things Singapore, etc.), I try to keep my posts pretty well categorized, so wander on over to the sidebar on the right, and click on anything that catches your eye. 🙂
Of course, I have a loooong list of posts queuing on my “To Write” list, including:
Stretching Various Body Parts (I started with a Calf Stretching post, but I have so many more to add!)
Rolling Mostly Those Same Parts (IT bands are certain to be a big hit)
My (very, very belated) Energizer Night Trail Run Race Report
“The Soles We Found At McRitchie”
Weekly Training Round-Ups (and upcoming races!)
The “We’re Just Friends” story of how KMN & I ended up together
and, since I’ll be in New Jersey in a few weeks,
Photographic Evidence of my Short-Lived Stint in Ballet Class (as initially referenced in my very first blog post)
So if any (or all) of those sound interesting, do yourself a favor, and do something a little more permanent than Bookmark this site. To add yourself to the list of Cool People Who Get New Blog Posts By Email, see the widget in the right-hand sidebar. Alternatively, plop me into your RSS Reader of choice. But do remember that Google Reader is going off-line on July 1. Personally, I’ve switched to Feedly, but that’s certainly not your only choice. [For example, Bloglovin‘ seems to have become a favorite among some fellow bloggers. Obviously, there are others out there.]
And, while I generally don’t use my blog to promote my coaching services, if you happen to be looking for a coach to help you prepare for a fun, safe run of any distance – check out what I do in the What is E-Coaching? section.
And last, but certainly not least, don’t stay too anonymous! One of the coolest parts about blogging is the opportunity to interact with my readers. I love building communities – especially supportive running communities! So please, please – don’t be afraid to say hello. [For spam-reduction reasons, I will have to approve your first Comment – but after that, you will be able to comment freely on future posts.] If you need a prompt to get started, let’s try this:
I’m still exploring all the races that Singapore has to offer, so: What is your favorite race in Singapore – and WHY?
