CH and I decided to take the MRT to Esplanade to avoid the crowd. We met alot of runners along the way. This is the first run that made it mandatory to wear the race tee. That's because the race number is printed on the t-shirt so every piece is unique. CH didn't manage to get a space, so I was at the start point, feeling so lonely and bored. Besides, I was so sleep deprived, I kept yawning while waiting for the gun to go off. It's my first afternoon race and I didn't like the humidity one bit.
There were many excited participants who kept moving about. Sandwiched between many hot bodies and feeling the heat rising from the tarmac, I couldn't wait to start running. We were treated to a band performance and some speeches. While there were other performances lined up along the route, the truth is, when you're feeling so drained along the way, you don't really pay any attention to these distractions.
A sea of red.
CH managed to spot my aunt and cousin. It was hard to look out for any friends since everyone looked almost identical in the same outfit.
