Thanks to Hazel for giving me the chance to participate in Singapore first Garfield Run on behalf of her.
I had always seen alot of my friends participating in Marathon Run or Fun Run. However, it had never cross my mind to participate in one.
Reason being, I feel that it is a waste of money to pay to run and I does not have the stamina to complete a 5km or even a 10km run. Most importantly, my boyfriend will not participate in them too.
However, this Garfield Run change my perspective in participating in Marathon Run.
After a whole afternoon of food tasting event, I met up with Jia Hui for the run. I am really excited as is my first run experience.
The Promontory @ Marina Bay had turn into a bright orange sea with over a total of 8,200 runners.
Since it is a more relax and fun run as compare to marathon like Standard Chartered Run, Sun Down etc. Everyone is happily taking selfies and photos with the backdrops
We participated in the 3km fun run. While waiting for the flag off, we get see Garfield and Oldie. How could a themed character run without its mascot. We managed to get a quick shot with Garfield.
In conjunction with Garfield Run, the National Day Preview was going on at the opposite side of the Singapore River.
Finally, we completed the 3km run !
Since there is National Day Preview, we decided to stay behind for the fireworks.
I finally understand the sense of achievement after completing the run. As well as, the feeling of when everyone having the same goal and working towards it.
I am looking forward to participate in more Marathon Runs in the future.
