The first ever Youth Olympic Games (YOG) was held in Singapore from August 14 to August 26 2010. Athletes range from 14 to 18. New Zealand has participants.

This event is close to my heart. The Youth Olympic Village is located in Nanyang Technological University. For more than half of my adult life, I have lived here as an ex pat faculty wife. The campus is full of greenery, and I hope the young athletics had a good stay.

The photo shows the university's oval, and on the right the swimming pool. It was here, I trained for my 10 km Marathon running. My friend L. trained with me at 6 am in the morning, we added 800 metres per day. Later, we did our circuit of running round the university campus. The day, we completed our 10 km, we High 5ed

Interesting post. I look back fondly on my university days, although those are long ago. I'm sure I couldn't run for 10 km, although I do occasionally hike that far in our mountains.

Interesting post and great that you are doing so much running. I had to stop jogging and running and I hate how much less fit I've become.

Wow...this looks like a place to work out to be sure.

And as for your Friday nights...well, being retired as I am most nights are 'freebies' for me...don't have to think of getting up to go to work...but like you, I Do Love My BED! LOL

I didn't realize you were a runner. This certainly looks like a great place to train. I hope the Youth Olympic Games went well.

Very informative post. I never know about this event. That would be nice to watch the various games. Wish I could run like you but even 1 km for me is too hard.

Ah, so you DO speak Guoyu, Ann! I wondered whether you'd ever been/lived in Asia. I am in relatively good shape, tennis, walk, hike, swim... but I don't run. [You must be a teacher... I get a kick out of the questions you leave on blog... clever you... :-) ]
