Someone: Don’t wear white while running after nightfall.
Me: Why???
Someone: People might think that they are seeing things.
Me: As in?
Someone: Casper the friendly ghost. If you are wearing a white top, it looks like you are floating while you are running.
Me: LOL!

You should be sleeping. Why are you still doing Night Runs/Marathon (eg. Sundown)? At this age, you should be relaxing and going on holidays, why run?

7. Susan Leong

I captioned my Facebook photo (of me grimacing at 37 km): "Asking myself why."
Someone commented: "Did you find the answer at the end?"
I found the comment funny. Strangely, no one else did. *Sigh*

"Running is bad for the knees, swimming is better."

"You run ultra distances?" People judge you by your physical appearance and assume that ultra runners are slim and thin. Fat people can't go far?

 I often reply to someone who asked me “Why are you running?”
“Easy come, easy go. That’s why I just run.”
“Run in to run out of stress”
