Running Blog #48: Running Date at Kenny's OPEN URBANITE RUN

The urbanite run was my first night run.
I usually run after office but it only goes as late as 7:00 pm.
Running at 8:45 pm was totally a whole new experience.

It was actually a running date with hubby- we decided to run together on his first 10K.
And we decided to keep pace, it was dark and it feels better knowing your running side by side with someone you know. I regretted not bringing my headlamp.

It was a great run, there were plenty of water and sport drinks, marshalls were present and the course is indeed challenging. I particularly enjoyed the challenge of McKinley Hill and the very humid weather. It becomes uncomfortable specially because I also have a period.
I thought I'm gonna faint at the finishline.

Even if that run is my slowest PR in 10K- I had a joy knowing that I finished the race. It was a wonderful made me a little stronger and made me rethink about my training =)

One setback though is that hubby and I have no pix together- I was the only one who gets pix at the photovendo (He was on my left unfortunately photovendo captured someone on my right. Sigh!).


  1. You are truly blessed by having a life partner who's also your running buddy. I can only imagine the excitement the two of you must feel to be really together through thick and thin, every step of the way. Not everybody is given this wonderful gift. Treasure every moment of it.

    Hope to see you and your family in future races.
