At last year's practice run.
I can hardly believe it has been a year since we did our first practice run with Runner's Day. Last year, when we were truly infatuated with running, we signed up for several half marathons in Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia and that practice run was our first 21k.
We went for another practice run yesterday organised by Runner's Day to prepare runners for the Singapore Marathon in early December. Though we are not participating in the marathon this year, we went for the practice anyway. Due to the lack of training, we did the 10k run this time.
We arrived early to secure a parking lot and hung around the beach while waiting for the other runners to arrive, craning our neck to look for my blogging pal, Water.
CH spotted a tall and slim lady in the distance who bore some resemblance but wasn't too sure. After gawking for a while, I went up to her. When she broke into her trademark smile, we knew we had found her.
We had missed her at several running events this year and finally, we were standing before her, chatting like old friends! She turned out to be really friendly, confident and inspiring. We ran together for the first 10km and she went on to finish another 10km. She's indeed a good runner.
Water is the second blogger pal I have met in person, the first being Amel who visited Singapore recently. I'll be meeting Flying Pink Elephants in London next month and I can't wait! Isn't it amazing? Who would have thought all this was possible 10 years ago!
