Shape Run 2014

Hurray! This is the second year joining Shape Run with Bell and Windie. Shape Run had been an annual affair for us to bond together. Joining marathons together brings out the running spirit from runner to runner and the motivation for race completion. I love working out with the girls as there is a drive for us to push each other further than our usual self. Anyways, I had a swollen shin last 2 weeks before the race day due to a bad fall down the stairs. Therefore, no training was done in between the last 2 weeks from race day and I could not do my best for this race 😦 Boo

Though we still enjoy the items in the goodie bags and extremely love the striking pink race tee! It was much better than last year’s orange.  But to a certain extent, on race day itself many to-dos was fallen short and many runners like me felt disappointed with the whole event.


First and foremost, the main essential necessity for a marathon will be the water points. Inadequate hydration is one of the main reasons that Shape Run 2014 fell short for. I do not want to elaborate on the consequences of dehydration, but to emphasize on the need for water in between a race. Honestly, we just want water. Why was it so difficult to set up a larger table for the water point station and hire more people to pour drinks instead of runners snatching paper cups and bottles just for that few sip?! There were even online feedbacks mentioning about some runners experiencing cramps due to the insufficient hydration during the 10km race!

Even whilst crossing the finishing mark, we were like lost souls. There were absolutely no proper instructions on how we could just get our water, finisher tee and runner’s medal. We started forming 4 queues as long as a 1 hour wait each. The queue for the finisher tee was chaotic, as there were neither pull up signage nor dividers to separate runners of different sizes. It was a total waste of time. Can you imagine the long wait with the thirst for water? How pathetic.

This overall experience marks one of the worst marathons I have joined in, so far. I felt that the organizing team for Shape Run 2014 was not as fantastic as last year. Still, I enjoyed the companionship of my girls and the striking pink race tee from Sketchers was awesome! Thankfully, those celebrities hunks were around for photo-taking. Feeling slightly compensated though. Heh.

Just RUN ♡

NTUC Run 350


Went for RUN 350 yesterday despite the crazy weather in the morning. It was the first time I joined RUN 350 organised by Young NTUC. I thought RUN 350 was very purposeful, as we run for tomorrow. RUN 350 is Southeast Asia’s premier eco-run in support of the global 350 movement. This movement aims to raise awareness to the need to lower atmospheric CO2 levels to 350 parts per million, which scientists believe is the level required for Earth’s sustainability. 

We picked up a 10 kilometers route as the girls wasn’t ready to challenge the long distance 21 kilometers marathon. Thankfully, we were lucky this way! The huge morning rain & thunderstorm made it almost impossible to run, that bad till organizers had to call off the 21 kilometers marathon at the very last minute. Due to safety concerns, all of us choose to stay at home for the latest update via RUN 350 Facebook before leaving the house aimlessly. With my mind conflicting between the cancellation of the run (90%) or miraculously stopped rain, so we can continue our run (10%). 

AT 6:53am, RUN 350 posted and announced that “The 10 kilometers marathon is a GO! And flag off will be at 7:15am!” Frantically, the girls and I rushed on to prepare and took a cab down immediately. So much of thoughts about it canceling. Hahaha, what a drama day. #diediemustrun

Three of us before the race starts!


10153141_10152141455632746_5788871295951017378_nOne of the attention seeker runner around, wearing his Superman outfit with a tied tyre behind his back. He was making lots of noise and attracted many stares from vehicles along the road. Practically, he isn’t running due to the tied heavy weight but he was having fun throughout the race.

10171003_10152141456537746_2018841194409693105_nWith the wet and slippery floor, we started our race slowly. Having a slow jog pace was definite after the heavy downpour, roads were damp and slippery. Having in mind was to complete the race, but never about the timing. Safety first. Along our way, we witnessed a few runners falling and injuring themselves. =(


10325313_10152141456382746_5715673548248642434_nRun, and keep going. The cooling weather turned out to be perfect for the run. It was really cool, breezy and not too hot. We did it once again in 2014! Hurrrrraayy girls, well done!

10169194_10152141455207746_7140384754173529499_n 10308160_10152141456122746_1855243606368841811_n 1926698_10152141456167746_93556588885366390_nYAY! Results were released today and time checked was 1 hour 6 minutes, taking into consideration of my slower pace due to the wet floor. I achieved almost similar timing as compared to last year’s SHAPE Run 2013. I am sure my stamina was improving with those skipping and running training, 3-4 times per week. Satisfied! =)

Proud finishers of NTUC 350 10 kilometers marathon! Despite the bad weather today & the last minute “to-go”, nonetheless the whole event turned out well. Endurance and determination brought us all together in completing the race. Cause the basic motto of a runner is never about giving up.

Just Run. Don’t ask me why I run, ask yourself why you don’t.


2013 Marathons

Started November with WE RUN SG 2013, it have been our yearly affair with BFF & it’s our 3rd time doing it together! Glad to kick start a healthy lifestyle after all the eating the past few months. Need to get back in shape & resume my diet!


I do enjoy marathons with the all my girlfriends and I felt that I have been a great motivation for them to kick start a healthy lifestyle. This brings to me, satisfaction and the drive to work even harder for my own health and fitness! Thankful for the bunch of girlfriends around me who are willing to join me in this fitness journey, it wouldn’t have been possible without the support and encouragement from them.


Completed SHAPE RUN 2013 this year too. This is my first time joining Shape Run and I love it so much. First, it is an all ladies run and secondly, I love their goodies from the goodie bag! 😉 They have one of the best sponsors around and I will definitely join them in 2014 and the coming years. Running with the girls and pushing them to sign up for a marathon was an achievement for myself too. Encouragement is only possible with inspiration, and I will continue to work harder for myself. Cheers to fitness!
