I don't even remember signing up for this run. But I did. I don't regret signing up for the run. I just wish it doesn't have to be so early in the morning. We had to take a taxi and we didn't really know the exact location of the starting point. We did find it. Unfortunately after we alighted from the taxi, we couldn't cross the road because there was a road divider. We ended up walking to a overhead bridge near by.
Overall, the route was not bad. The paths were really wide most of the time except for a few small areas which is acceptable. The sun didn't shine in my face and it was pretty shady. We ran past the Kallang river and at two particular points, it stank like oh mother crap. I started out very slow, as always. I was right in front of the start line but once the horn was sounded, everyone took off like lightning. I found myself at the back of the pack. So disheartening. At the 3km mark, I noticed I was catching up as some runners had run out of steam. The last 500m, I ran a bit faster and that probably explains why my timing improved! My usual timing is around 45min.
