Hello Hi Hey~
Sounds familiar? Yes, it’s that time of the year again, when everyone’s preparing not for races, but for exams. Before you are totally engulfed by the long and torturous examinations, let us bring you through a series of exciting blogging events you can look forward to. But before that, let us first introduce ourselves. We are your newly appointed cool, charming, cute, classy, committed and cultured blog administrators, who are searching for a brave soul to step up and take the role of main coordinator while we help him/her out. And we see your volunteer hands! You may approach us during training
Jokes aside, our main objective of running the blog proper is to encourage readership and to build up an active blogging community. Looking back on previous posts, many of the shared running experiences (ranging from an 800m race to a 70.3 miles ironman triathlon) have inspired us in various ways. We would therefore like to encourage you guys to share your running experiences here and use it as a platform to motivate people continue running.
So here are some interesting upcoming features of our blog (where upcoming means somewhere in May after our exams):
Story of the week
As a once-every-two-weeks highlight of the blog, a specially chosen member of the team would be invited to write about any of his or her running-related experiences. And we really mean “invite”; invitation card will be given out personally for the lucky one. Don’t worry, we are not here to torture you with more essays and assignments. You will have a sufficient preparation period of 2 weeks.
Regretted for missing the deadline of Why We Run or not having a chance to take part in Freshie Blog Competition just because you are no longer a freshie? Good news then, because this time round we will have more blogging contests with different theme throughout the semester. Look out for more details as the time goes.
Looking for races but too lazy to do random search? A running calendar will be added to the blog and you can find out more about internal, external, local and overseas races here. But this may require slightly more time because we are still figuring out how to do so.
The list goes on, but as your considerate blog admin (another adjective), we do understand that your time and attention are limited. As a final word, look out for our upcoming blogging events and we sincerely hope that you can show us your support in one way or another. You may start blogging here if you are bored studying too.
Last but not least, all the best for your exams
Jackie and Emelyne
