Singapore said "Cannot!"

A rep from the Singapore Marathon called me last week and said “No! Your 16 year old son cannot run the marathon. And no you cannot receive a refund. Cannot! Cannot!”

But she said they would gladly withdraw our registrations if we would like. Withdraw them without a refund … yeah right!

I am still signed up for the full marathon and Jakeb is now signed up for the 10k. We will at least go get our packets. I may run as much as I can slow and easy on less than full marathon training. I may run just to people watch and have fun.

We are switching our training around and will probably run the Hong Kong marathon in February. They allow 16 year olds to run their marathon. We may run something else, we will see.

Ugh! At least they offer such a thing! Hope everything's going well so far.

Hey Adrienne. Everything is going well. We enjoy living here and running here in Singapore.
