Last Wednesday morning, I was on One FM91.3 with Glenn Ong, Flying Dutchman and Andre Hoeden. He had a fun time with the DJs talking about the upcoming Urbanathlon Race and did a quick pre-race screening on Glenn and Andre's upper and lower limbs.

I was on Love 97.2FM with DJ Violet Fenying talking about hip pain and hip injuries (including sports injuries and osteoarthritis). This was a live interview conducted in Mandarin.

Join us at the upcoming Cycle Out Poverty 2016 in February! This meaningful charity ride seeks to raise $120,000 for Habitat for Humanity Singapore‘s StarBuilders programme.

The StarBuilders programme enables youths from disadvantaged and marginalised backgrounds to take part in a Habitat experience, such as an overseas build trip. Give your support either as a cyclist or event sponsor today!

My clinic and I were the sponsors for this year's Ride for Ration. It is a charity cycling event organised by Bike-Aid Singapore, a non-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers and registered under Registry of Societies Act. 

Through Ride for Rations, we deliver urgently-needed basic monthly rations (for a year) to deserving families living in one-room rental flats registered with the Sunlove Home’s Neighbourhood Links in Marsiling, Chai Chee and Hougang. Find out more on how you can continue helping!

I’ll be riding for Ride For Rations 2015 this coming weekend. It is a 250 km charity bike ride from Malacca to Singapore and it aims to raise funds to provide monthly food rations to 330 needy households registered with Sunlove Neighbourhood Link - an outreach of registered charity, Sunlove Abode for Intellectually Infirmed.

Apart from running, my clinic and I will be involved in this initiative in the following ways:
- Pinnacle Joint & Sports Centre and I are corporate sponsors of this event
- Clinic Manager Edmond Galletes Velasco will be providing medical coverage as an event medic

Please donate generously via the online portal!

"Running On Empty" is a great article on OTS, Over Training Syndrome -- a condition seen in increasing numbers in endurance sport athletes.

Some important points raised in the article are:
"Still rare in most power and speed sports, cases of overtraining syndrome, or OTS, have steadily increased in the endurance ranks over the past decade. As ultradistance events have gained popularity, a generation of top ultrarunners are suddenly breaking down faster and in greater numbers."

"You climb and you climb and you climb, and your body adapts to bigger and bigger loads," says Jeff Kreher, a physician at Massachusetts General Hospital and the author of one of the only comprehensive academic papers on OTS, published in Sports Health in 2012. “But there will come a point where you reach the pinnacle and stop positively adapting to stress and strain, and instead you start responding negatively.”

I was recently interviewed on 93.8 LIVE on the pros and cons of barefoot running and walking, as well as the upcoming Bare Your Soul charity walk. Bare Your Soul is a barefoot charity walk, organised annually by Habitat for Humanity Singapore to raise awareness and funds for the poor communities that Habitat serves locally and abroad. The 7th edition of this walk will be held at Palawan Beach, Sentosa this coming Saturday from 8am to 12pm. It is a great opportunity for you to walk a mile in the shoes of children living in poverty without access to proper footware.
