Singapore Marathon Evaluation

Here is a chart showing my finishing position in the Singapore Marathon compared to other runners. I would have never finished this close to the front in comparison to the rest of the field in the Houston Marathon. There are many people here who are willing to sign up for the marathon and stroll along until they finish.

There is nothing wrong with walking a marathon. I do have a problem when they dump the marathon course in with the half marathon and 10k races when the people in them are walking while the marathoners who run are still trying to finish. I had a hard time weaving through and sometimes breaking through the crowd of walkers who took up the whole road.
