Filipino American Expat in Singapore

I was so scared the day before the race since it was my first time to join the Half Marathon route of Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore. I joined the 10KM run in 2012 and 2013.

Why did I sign up for 21.1KM or the half marathon? Mainly because after doing the 10KM two years in a row, it was becoming too familiar. I wanted to push myself further this year.

However, I wasn’t able to train for my first half marathon. While I’d like to believe I’m more physically fit now compared to six months ago (with all the dragon boat newbie trainings), running hasn’t taken off. I also nursed a fever this past week.

I stayed over at a friend’s house in Normanton Park since it’s closer to the HM starting point at Sentosa.

The flag-off was at 6:30AM but we were part of the last wave of participants. The HM route starts off at the entrance of Sentosa, heads towards the beaches from Palawan to Siloso, enters Resorts World Sentosa and Universal Studios Singapore, exits through RWS back onto the bridge towards VivoCity, climbs up a fly-over and heads over towards Labrador Park MRT before u-turning back towards the city. Runners exit the elevated highway near Maxwell Road before turning in at the CBD at Tanjong Pagar, passing by Lau Pa Sat, then towards the Padang where the finish line was. Wheeew.
