  8. wah very good timing, this is incredible for a first timer. need a good pair of cushioning shoe for ur next mara ~ let me know. keep up the momentum, u will definite see better results.

  9. i need 1 that's flexible enuf too. :)

  10. my recommendation with be these 2 models. 1) Triumph 5 ~ a cushioning shoe (for neutral runners) that gives you the extra bounce in a marathon. Weighs ard 10oz. Selling @ RM300 and 2) Fastwitch 3 ~ the light weight trainer / racer for competition. Weighs ard 7oz. Selling @ RM260

  11. Wow Michelle, I didn't realise you'd done the Singapore Marathon. Fantastic, well done and what a great time!
