I can run!

If you think all I do is eat, I'm here to dispel the myth. I can run too! :-)

We've just completed the SPCA 4.8km trail running at MacRitchie Reservoir. We arrived early to secure a parking lot even though the event is a small one. There were less than 700 runners, merely 1% of the popular Standard Chartered Marathon!

I prefer smaller events like this. Afterall, running is supposed to be fun and relaxed. I did quite well considering it's my first race this year. Then again it's only 4.8km, very manageable distance for the casual runner.

I'll be doing the 10k event next Sunday at the Great Eastern Women Run. I hope to do well in that race too.

Waiting for the race to start @ 7am.

The mascot looks like Rusty!

Prizes galore for the winners.
