FTW, Baby at Commando Challenge 2013

Baby and I had a mini celebration as Baby is going for his first ever Commando Challenge and decided to pop by Chili's at Tanglin Mall for our Friday dinner which was 2 days before the challenge.


We shared our usual favorites - FULL RACK RIBS... Hahahaha!! We had a delightful dinner and the damage was SGD52-ish.



The Commando Challenge is a new and exciting race in Singapore for those who have a hunger for fun and adventures. It is a trail run with challenging obstacles designed by Special Forces to test your all round fitness, determination and commando spirit.  



Prior to the event day, Baby collected his personal race number chest bib with race chip timing from his BFF, Nick Allen. He helped Baby to collect the race pack on his behalf...


Baby met up his 'angmo' friends for the Commando Challenge, and they signed up for the Elite category which requires a completion of 25+ obstacles on a 12KM route from Tanglin Halt Road to Tanjong Pagar Railway Station...

  
Participants gathered at the starting point...




  These were some of the obstacles during the challenges...

The ELITE FINISHERS: All his race mates are Caucasian and that made him the only Asian in the team.


Baby and his friends completed the challenge within the race time, and they were awarded the Commando Challenge finisher’s medal and Commando Challenge T-Shirt.

I am so proud of my Baby as he just finished his first-ever 21.1Km (half marathon) for the Standard Chartered Marathon 2013 and within 2 weeks, he took up the Commando Challenge and completed his 12KM route with obstacles challenge within a short period of time of recovery. 


Commando Challenge is truly a tough race as the medal (dog tag) tells you that so, and all the females who took up the Commando Challenge 2013 gained my respect, as I really admire their endurance, physical fitness and perseverance.
