Completed the run!
For the 2nd time - I completed the GE Womens's Fun Run 5km race. The difference this time was that I was not alone. My hubby and friends were there cheering for me at the finishing line. My cousin was with me in the run - though she was no where to be found during the run - we found each other in the end. And the other difference was that I felt the run was short. Not long like the first time few years ago. I guess training made all the difference.
I ran a bit here and there, but did a fast walk most of the time. It was not easy to run as most of the ladies were walking themselves and stalled a bit here and there. There were 17000 entries this year - so there were a lot of ladies there. But I guess the 5km run had the most runners - because even after I completed the run in 50 mins - there were still throngs of women after me.
Overall the run was exciting and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Since I stayed over at my cousins, and she drove me to the event, I left my overnight bag at her car. So I tagged along with her and she dropped me at Shenton Way at hubby's office. Hubby and friends, came over in 3 minutes and picked me up. We had a good breakfast over at Tanjong Pagar and then left for home. I rested for a few hours due to throbbing headache- and body pain all over - and somehow towards the end of the day - it seems as if the run was like a long time ago!
