So much to share! But first I’ll start with running in Singapore. First thing to know, running in Singapore should generally start before the sun fully rises. It is definitely a running city. I started by asking my hotel concierge for a suggested running route and they had a handy map with different routes on hand. I was surprised and delighted considering that most of my time so far was spent under ground connecting through different malls. I ventured out mainly at night when the temperature was a little more accommodating.
I definitely enjoyed my visit and enjoyed the two runs that I did while there. First, the general run around the Marina Bay Sands and ending by the Merlion on the opposite side. In all, I ran about 3 miles and timed it perfectly for the sunrise, which was beautiful to see.
Here are some pictures of sights seen on that run.
The second run was a 10k race that felt like a full marathon in the middle of the day with the sun bearing down and a very interesting course, it made for a very challenging 10 miles, one that took me almost two hours to complete. But it was worth it! I don’t think I’d ever get the chance to run in Singapore again so I took full advantage of it. Plus I ad to complete it because I had a friend waiting for me with a home cooked meal. The bib and the medal is one that I will cherish for a long time.
