Running is exercise. Exercise creates endorphins. Endorphins make you happy! Smiling for the official photog with running buddies, Kris and Sandy

After months of on-and-off running, I finally joined my first 5K race. Thanks to Sandra who invited me to join the Rexona (Men) Adventure Run, and much thanks to the heavens for giving us two weeks of nearly rain-free weather, which allowed me to prepare for the race. We had a great morning of fun marathon, games, freebies, and lots of photo-ops 🙂

I’m sure these two clocked in much more quickly than I did.

Thank you, trustworthy runners!

I was a bit disappointed with my run, on the other hand, as I already managed a faster pace the previous week. Oh well, I’ll try to make 5k in under 30 minutes next time. I’m just happy to finally strike another item off my “35 before 35″ list.

After running 5k and two hours of hanging about at the MOA concert grounds for freebies and picture taking, we trooped to the first decent open restaurant for heavy breakfast: Ya Kun Kaya Toast (“Uniquely Singapore”).

What’s in the loot bag: Pain reliever, Rexona products good for a year, hair care stuff, discount cards and stickers to Victoria Court. I’m not sure I’d be able to use the last two items.
