Ultra Running: A Love | Hate Affair

BY JONATHAN SOON
@ VOL 3 ON JUL 01, 2016

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.

Stronger than the Prognosis 

BY HEATHER LAPTALO
@ VOL 25 ON MAR 27, 2018

This presentation is about accomplishing great physical feats after being told you never would.

Heather Laptalo is addicted to high altitudes, open vistas and heart-pounding sufferfests that challenge her physically and mentally.  The only time she's not running is when she's skiing or climbing a mountain.  She wasn't always like this.  She grew up wearing back braces and had a spinal fusion and total reconstructive back surgery, all before the age of 20 to stop her scoliosis and kyphosis from getting worse.  85% of her spine is fused and she's missing 40% of her lung capacity, leaving her 20% physically disabled.  She defied all the odds and proven countless doctors wrong.  She's #strongerthantheprognosis
