7 Sisters, three painful days later…

Three days after the 7 Sisters Trail Race, and I’m still limping around. I did some serious damage to my quadriceps and the heat sucked the life out of me. It is going to take a few more days to bounce back. I swam this morning, but had a “goggle malfunction” 15 minutes into the session. I sprung a leak and then the goggles just snapped in half. Oh well. I can’t see six inches without contacts and I had them in, so I practiced swimming with my eyes closed.

As for Sisters, I’ve seen a lot of Facebook posts, blog entries, and other discussion board activity. Most people agree that there isn’t a tougher 12 mile course out there. Nearly 300 people suffered through the heat and most came out feeling accomplishment. It was my seventh Sisters in a row and it was Debbie’s tenth in a row. For her, that is quite a feat. For me, it is stupidity. I’m not made that kind of up and down. Debbie has been running strong on the Grand Tree Trail Running circuit for more than a decade.

Hopefully everyone recovers and comes out to her race, the Soapstone Mountain Trail Race on 16 May. The Shenipsit Striders are ready to host another great event. I can tell Soapstone is near when the activity level picks up around the house. The Race Director is getting things ready. Very cool.

I never post about food. However, this is the second time this week that I’m posting about food. These #vegan dishes at Empress by @theprivegroup were awesome. #instavegan #singapore Everything worked out fine for @trailrunningmom After a little stress, they had her race packet and bib number at the @metasprintseries venue and she kept it upright on the bike! 🚴🏽 She was very pleased with 2nd place 🏆 in her age group at her first road #Duathlon.🏃🏻There are no mountains ⛰ and there isn’t much singletrack in #singapore but it’s still a great city for endurance sports. It looked like there were more than 1,500 athletes at the 3K/18K/3K race with LOTS of kids too. Great vibe! #triathlonsg #teamhorstsports 🇺🇸 Our kids may recognize this great Shoppes @marinabaysands feature from six years ago. I had forgotten how cool it was. #singapore #marinabaysands First time on a road bike for @trailrunningmom In advance of her first ever road duathlon @metasprintseries I taught her some tips & tricks including the do's/don'ts of shifting strategy, cornering, blocking (not), drafting (not), passing, flying mount/dismount, etc. It was fun! Even though she was on a "rental" too, I couldn't keep up on my "steed." #triathlonsg #singapore #teamhorstsports @thecheryltan #cheryltan #singapore #singapore Name those tunes. 11-year-old Feng E is making a name for himself in Asia and beyond. #guitar #fenge #singapore 🎸 @trailrunningmom led #yoga at #ypoedge #singapore 

@ypoglobal #yogini Tremendous #vegan dinner @metasingapore Without a heads up, Chef Sun and his team whipped up an amazing seven course + three “snacks” meal for @trailrunningmom and me, that was worthy of their @michelinguide star. We sat at the counter and watched every step in the process. Chef said that with advanced notice (of our diet), he “would have done better.” We appreciated his perfectionism, but it was just fine. #metarestaurant #instavegan #michelinguide #singapore
