A Sub-3 hours, finally for Mr Jensen Toh
|Mr Jensen Toh – Looking elated after doing 2hr 58min 30sec in Berlin Marathon, today.|
The day will be passed and I may not be able to write about Mr Jensen Toh, 32, on his sub-3 hour achievement in Berlin Marathon 2015. I saw Mr Joseph Ho’s post in the Facebook, where many were congratulating Mr Jensen Toh’s achievement in doing a 2hr 58min 30sec.
Mr Jensen did a 2hr 48min in the 40km mark. At that point, Coach Rameshon told me that the chances are not easy as there will be muscle fatigue which may derail the effort of a runner to do well, as severe cramps can set in.

With an even pace running all the way, Mr Jensen finally did a time of 2hr 58min 30sec. He has become one of the sub-3 hour runners in our group. I am very happy for Mr Jensen as I found out from coach Rameshon on how the former missed the sub – 3hour mark in the year 2013 in Standard Chartered Marathon where he did 3hr 18min. Unfazed, he braved the training and workouts and finally did a time of 2hr 58min 30sec. This is great news for us, for Team Flexifitness!

The resilience that Mr Jensen Toh demonstrated has finally made him achieve his goal. I believe that there was self-believe when he did it. It was good to hear that despite failures he attempted the marathon again and again. This is great news for those who want to brave the sub-3hours for the marathon.
