15 July 2012 Sunday
My first take of a running event for this year. Same like last year, I missed the start of the 10 km run because I am taking the public transport.
This is the first only female running event and information from the news was that there were 8600 female runners and 30 male pacers. I am not sure how well the ladies take having male pacers in an all female running event.
There were no African runners, Vivian Tang and Anne Date for the 2012 Shape Run Singapore.
What is interesting about the Shape Run is the sheer number of Porta John catered for the event.
The queue to get the goodie bag was crazy.
Congratulations to all the ladies who completed the morning run.
See you ladies again at the 2012 Great Eastern Women’s Run, 11 November 2012 Sunday, The Float@Marina Bay.
