This marathon, I'm going green with sustainable salad power. Just mean greens, beans and a dash of dairy free volition. No need for meat to run 42.1 km.
Lets all eat less meat. Why? VSS has collected a good series of articles to explain. Go to: http://www.vegetarian-society.org/Articles.
Cut down your meat intake by one meal a week and you'll be making a difference. To help you meat less:
For every 10 - 20 dollars you donate to Vegetarian Society Singapore, I will send you a vegetarian recipe in the form of a haiku.
For every 20 - 50 dollars you donate, I will plant a bean in a pot and send it to you when it sprouts. There's nothing more protein rich than home grown beans =D ... this will take time!
For every 50 - 100 dollars you donate, I will prepare a smoothie of your choice, and deliver it you personally =D !
For > 100 dollars? All the above!

4 years ago, my family became veg warriors to battle a terrible monster. It is a story and a half but to cut it short, we beat it, and we owe it to the might of the carrot stick, dense smoothies of avocado and bananas and generous salads.
To anyone viewing this thread, there was an unfortunate mix-up with the registration process (mine was a late registration), and the sports council has been unable to get me through despite their best efforts.
To the anonymous donor, Thank you for your support. I will still run a 42.1 km, just not along the SC marathon route.
