The marathon was originally scheduled to be held on September 13 on a postponed date, but instead of being cancelled, it's a virtual run.
The #UGM2020 is a virtual event/race that can be run or walked from any location, locally and internationally. Registered runners can run, jog or walk at their convenience on a trail, on a treadmill, at the beach or on a track – anywhere they can safely complete their race distances of 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, and Full Marathon.
Runners will be responsible for tracking and timing their selected races at any time - between September 5 and September 13.
But, in my case, there is a park nearby with a track suitable for a marathon. For Half Marathon, 7.5 laps of the park.
I actually started around 3am to attempt a half marathon on Tuesday. These photos taken at 3:08.
But unfortunately, my Apple Watch workout app, Outdoor Run, somehow ended in the middle of my run. After thinking a while, I re-started Outdoor Run and kept running to the half marathon point anyway.
That does not tell you the time result.
I took a break for a while to get my half marathon time results back again. I realized that I could complete a half marathon in practically a little over two hours.
The second challange - I took pictures before I started running at 3:55am. Well.... these are the same pictures as the last time.
I started my workout around 4:00am. I checked my Apple Watch from time to time to make sure it wasn't finishing on its own.
Finnaly, I could get the time result! Phew.
The pace and the time is not so bad, aren't they?
