A satisfying race!
It was my second participation at Great Eastern Women’s Run in the 10km category.
The first was in 2012 and I have yet to beat that timing of 57 minutes.
I did not carry my mobile phone throughout the race, and I find it a pity that I was unable to capture the beautiful sunrise and awesome landmarks
such as Singapore Sports Hub, Kallang River, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore Flyer and Gardens by the Bay.
With consideration of the wet floor and the crowded route (at the last few km towards the ending point), I wasn’t able to keep up with my pace and
decided to take a leisure jog and brisk walk.
The drink stations were sufficient and well staggered between ice mountain water and isotonic drink. I actually stopped at all the water stations to get myself hydrated.
The most satisfying experience of the run was to receive the finisher medal, a can of 100+ and a banana! (Not forgetting the cheers and encouragement from volunteers!)
Before heading back to baggage area, I took a short stroll at the race carnival and saw interesting activities like bubble bump and photo booth.
Overall, the event was a great one and I look forward to run a half marathon for this next year!
