1. Who you are, how old you are and what you do?
My name is Corey, I am 25 years old from Singapore. I used to work in a Nike store here in Singapore in the past and studied Marketing.

2. Location and crew?
I run with a group called Purplelights here in Singapore. The group was founded back in late 2011 by a couple of friends, gradually the group expanded over the years, but the core values of the group still remains. 

3. What you have gained from running?
I would say friendships and a better me. The people I’ve gotten to meet during my running journey open my eyes to make me realise that there is so much more than just purely running itself. And running changed my life, I was no longer overweight, and I began to look at life with more positive attitude.

4. What you hope to achieve in future?
I hope to complete my first full marathon sometime soon in the future and also inspire more people who has that “fear” factor towards running to pick up running.

5. What makes you an Indie Runner?
I guess it's my personal approach towards running, I never like to put pressure on myself every time I run, like giving myself a certain time to complete or minimum distance to run for. I always approach running as an expression of fun, Personal fitness was becomes a natural progression but is never the main focus. As the group has a saying, “The Difference is that you ran today”. So as long you’re out heading for a run, any run is a good run because you’ve already ran your best.
