Yesterday got Marina Run but I never participate. Race fee is not cheap plus I never strike it rich in toto so I tell myself one year going to a few running events is good enough.
But yesterday’s run must be very fun, saw those fellow runners putting up pictures in Facebook and Instagram really felt a pinch in my heart that I never go. The race singlet also quite nice and can enjoy Chingay’s fireworks some more and even the 10km finisher got finisher tee.
In the past I usually run in the gym on a threadmill but soon it’s like a mental torture. Running in the same spot plus no scenery, my eyes is always looking at the time I’ve been running on the threadmill counting every seconds and every 0.01m. And of course the motivation to run die off soon.
Now I enjoys running in different places and have wanted to run and explore the whole of Singapore but still many places not explored and covered yet. Running, see scenery, relieve stress, enjoying the nature, keep fit, burn calories and many more benefits, I kill so many birds with one stone.
Living in Yishun so of course most of my runs are around the neighbourhood. There’s so many beautiful places to run in Yishun such as Yishun Park, Yishun Dam, ORTO, Lower Seletar Reservoir and Springleaf Nature Reserves however I have no favourite spot to run in as every place, the parks, the nature reserves, the reservoirs all in Singapore is actually very well maintained. Felt blessed that I’m in Singapore. Clean and green, everywhere is simply beautiful.
