 Jasmine Tan, 33, a Graphic Designer by profession, is commited to training with us, especially in running. She meet us regularly. Usually, she does not miss any form of training session in our programme. We had two runners running in the above event from Team Flexifitness. While Ranjith W. has done a personal best time, Jasmine made us proud by coming in 4th in the race. I decided to interview her on her feat in this race.
