|Team Flexifitness celebration Miao Yi Restaurant|
On, January 17, which was yesterday, we were celebrating Evan Chee and Colin Chua's victory at Miao Yi Vegetarian Restaurant. Both runners gave us a treat for athletes and coaches for the improved performance in Stanchart Marathon 2015 and in Ultra Marathon 2015. Evan was third in the Men Open category in Stanchart Marathon 2015 with a time of 2hr 56min, while Colin was 4th position in men open overall with a time of 2hr 58min, for first time doing a sub-3 hours. On top of that, Evan Chee, also came in as last year's champion for the MR 25 Mizuno Ultramarathon in the men open category of the race, fetching the fastest time taken for overall men and women as well.

While we were celebrating our victory, suddenly, as promised, Moonlake, Dr Ansgar's wife, told us that they will meet at Miao Yi restaurant, after their run in Hong Kong Marathon 2016. Just imagine, anyone in the right frame of mind would actually go straight home after arriving Singapore from Hong Kong, looking for a good rest at home. Unlike that, Dr Ansgar's family, after the SIA plane touchdown at Changi Airport, told us that they will also join us, not really for food, but for the celebration. We were about to finish our dinner, and somewhere at 9 30pm-9 40pm, finally Dr Cheng and family arrived. We felt elated and enjoyed the day even more with their presence and took a lot of photos together.

I find that this is one of the highest and finest gesture by anyone, who can willingly come from a tired run, and they came all the way for the dinner, without any form of rest, although the dinner was ending soon. I don't know how to pay respect for this extra mile gesture. Our Flexifitness team captain was impressed with this gesture. Towards the end of dinner, I gave a short speech and Lim Thow Wee spoke on the milestone that Flexifitness has achieved since year 2009, where we actually are meeting again at Miao Yi again. In the past, Dr Ben Tan gave us a treat here for his 2hr 56min time in Stanchart Marathon in year 2009.
We are also very happy for Dr Ansgar for his sub 3hr 09min run at Hong Kong. He did 3hr 08min plus, while Moonlake did 10km in around 1hr 01min. Official result will be out soon in the interview that Saranniya has posed to him. We, again, would like to congratulate Dr Ansgar for the valiant run and a new personal best of 3hr 08min, nearly 27min much faster than his 3hr 35min, formerly his personal best time in the Stanchart Marathon 2015. Also, we would like to congratulate Moonlake for her 2min plus improvement, from her personal best time of 1hr 03min in the 10km race. She did 1hr 01min in the race.
