Jun distance: 104 km (all time low in a month since 2002)
To Kranji, 68 km. Things may look the same, but a small change may lead to a big difference. Like what a tiny puncture does to a bicycle. Or an empty seat in an organisation. What difference one person makes depends on who the person is. As a mountain biker, I see obstacles along the way - and ways around them. As I approach, I see greater granularity and pick my line. I also see a place where, if there's a dog around, the dog will be. A black shape appears. It does not bark. I do not yell. It does its thing. I do mine. Forewarned is forearmed. It doesn't have a chance. It stops as the distance between us grows. I slow down but keep my eyes peeled in case it or its pals sneak up. Always vigilant, always safe. Even if it takes a tiny chunk of flesh off me, that would be too much.
