my first run
Yup… took part in my first ever “mass” run this morning. Well, I signed up for the 5km… not the 10km one, but i thought it is a really good start.
Running in an event like this was not as easy as i thought especially when some people were really there just to have a fun morning out. Hence for those who really wanted to test their speed and endurance would find this course slightly hard to go by. I found myself having to slow down now and then to maneuver past those who were strolling. Perhaps there should have been a rule where those walking should keep to the left and leave the path ahead clear for those who wanted to run. Well.. other than this, I thoroughly enjoyed the jog. Did not stop to walk at any point. and it helps a great deal to have someone to pace you. So, thanks to my colleague SW. I think I managed to finish 5km in about 45min… not ideal, but to me… someone who’s really never managed to complete her 2.4 in school… this is an amazing achievement. :)
The other thing that made my day was seeing a sea of SCGS girls in bright, running the route with us, and apparently they send in the most students for the GE year on year. The atmosphere the girls created brought back memories of younger days…. and also made me proud… once again to be an scgs girl…:
