With low-flying, washed-out colours

Passed!And so, with the dramatic, almost theatrical, gasping dash that lasted half a minute over the last one hundred metres, I passed the 2.4km run segment of the IPPT tonight, at 13:29, a full minute slower than my previous attempt more than two years ago.

But who cares? An ugly pass is still a pass, and I only have a couple more to go before I’m officially retired from all this physical stuff for National Service. Man, I’m old.

  3. A pass is a pass.

    You are fortunate you ROD before 1 April 1994. I was supposed to also but due to disruption, ended up being classified as ROD after 1 April 1994 and having to meet D i.e. at least 2 pts to pass my IPPT.

    Congrats on passing and all the best for future IPPTs.

  6. Expat@large, have you always been writing like theeese? I’m sure in your eagerness to blabber, you do know in your mind that you CAN divide your riveting thoughts into PARAGRAPHS, right?

    By the way, I’m “quite” xenophobic, which explains this reply:)

  8. Holyhunk, wow, not sure how all this got here!!! It is a (properly composed) post from my own blog –

    There was link to Miyagi in my screed, but it looks like the Trackback thing here has grabbed the ENTIRE voluminous too-much-time-on-my-hands rant!

    Miyagi-san, I think your trackback machine has MAJOR issues…

    Delete, please…
