It’s raining; We are still running!
Nila Run: A race that meant to offer runners once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in the 28th SEA Games 2015 activities. Participating runners were expected to experience thrill and excitement of running part of the route of SEA Games elite marathoner.
Receiving More Than Expected
The running community turned up in full force. The route was new and interesting. The road was slippery at some points and that got me thinking about our marathoners. There were ample water stations throughout the route. Running along Tanjong Rhu, I foresee this has to be one of the coolest 10km race for 2015. The rain started pouring 40 minutes after the start. And it gave me a time to reflect on the run. Nila Run, in my opinion, represented each athlete’s hard work and sweat training and qualifying to compete in the SEA Games. Not just the marathoners. Nila Run 2015 provides the perfect opportunity to go through each athlete’s struggle and daily temptations. One can stop or to push on. Today, the running community pushed on.
The spirits of the Sea Games
When most would dug for shelter due to the heavy downpour. This man stood at the side of the road cheering and encouraging every runner on. Sportsmanship at its best. Thank you Mr.
Congratulations to all participants at Nila Run. Great effort by the running community in the rain.
