Well, THAT was a year! Phew! Like all of you, I'm looking forward to a happier, healthier 2021, but I wanted to pause to give thanks to our community for all the support you gave Red Dot Running Company and our team in 2020. You don't need me to recap the year for you – we'll all be remembering it for decades without much fondness – but for many businesspeople, 2020 was a catastrophe, and many businesses did not survive. I'm confident most of those businesses will be back in another form (you can't keep a good entrepreneur down!), but the...

motivation, training, WFH -

Everyone runs (or cycles, or swims, or does any sort of regular exercise) for a different reason. But the pandemic has been a demotivating force for many of us.

interview, physio, training -

Taiwanese-Texan Jenny Huang is well-known on Singapore’s road racing scene (back when there was a road racing scene!), but she casts a much longer shadow out in the world of athletes from every sport (even desk jockeys!) who from time to time find that their bodies are not working quite right. Jenny is the founder and owner of HelloPhysio, which provides a wide range of physiotherapy and related services. We hate injuries, and we know you do too, so we thought we would talk to Jenny about what to do when you get injured, and more importantly, how to prevent...
