Ultra Running: A Love | Hate Affair

PRESENTED ON JUL 01, 2016
IN KUCHING @ VOL 3

An ultramarathon is a race that goes beyond the 42km distance. Jonathan Soon says he foolishly signed up and completed his first 100km race in October 2014. His presentation focuses on the human side (i.e emotional) of the ultramarathon journey. He shares on the toughness and the intensity of preparing and running for one, and most importantly, the values and rewards beyond Personal Bests (PBs) or the distance he has run. These lessons are not restricted in the realms of ultra-running. The things he has learned have assisted his growth in his other passions as well.
