Since my last run was over a month ago (Sundown FM), I missed running “with others”. Kuya N easily convinced me to join GK charity run with the aim of helping build back Haiyan victims’ lives and homes. It’s just an 8.6km run around (2rounds) Boat Vista at Bedok Reservoir.
Well, the route was easy but the temperature and humidity was a real challenge. I painstakingly endured the race under the scorching morning sun (rise). I seldom sweat like that. Although I am not sure if part of it was hormonal ,if you know what I mean hehe. Anyway, I was able to finish the race at 55minutes, reaching my attainable target of below 1hour.
I wasn’t expecting much after the race, but, to my surprise, they gave away free water, apples and cereals after the finish line. Woots!
Last year, after Haiyan, I wasn’t able to contribute as much as I thought I should be able to, hence, running this race made me feel so good, both physically and emotionally. Thanks organizers. It was a great run. =)
