Looking at the miserable state of my garden yesterday, I had asked for rain. The plants always perk up after a heavy downpour. The rain gods must have heard because I woke up to a wet morning.
Argh! Of all days! We went for the Yellow Ribbon Prison Run anyway. The rain didn't let up even when we were waiting for the flag off. At 8.30am, we set off in our ponchos.
Might as well grin and bear it.
The run took us through a scenic route (with several inclines) outside the prison walls. Due to my lack of training, it felt longer than 6km. Thanks to the cool weather, I didn't feel exhausted at all.
The kilt-wearing members of the Singapore Women Police Pipes & Drums were there too.
I must say the event was very well organised. We received a bag full of goodies (banana, orange, muffin and drinks) and a lovely Finisher 'key' but where was the elusive ice cream?
It was too cold for ice cream anyway, so CH and I went for roti prata and teh halia (ginger milk tea) instead.
