Wednesday Night CBD Run – 01

I’m trying to make it a weekly habit to go running every Wednesday.

Luckily, I have an officemate who’s equally excited to go running on a Wednesday evening. Our route starts near our office in Tanjong Pagar. We head down Shenton Way, going past Lau Pa Sat en route to the Promontory at Marina Bay.

Once you’re at the Promontory, you basically merge with all the other CBD runners. Some shirtless hotties I might add. Earlier the DBS Marina Regatta 2018 tents and event areas were already up in anticipation for this weekend’s dragon boat races.

I saw the FDS tent and it’s situated on a nice corner by a tree.

Our run route takes us past the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands and then on the waterfront side of Gardens by the Bay en route to Marina Barrage. It’s quite scenic and there are plenty of runners. There are also plenty of tourists too. Ah, Singapore, the way this area is enjoyed continues to enchant me. I wish I were a tourist sometimes with NO EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE of this city. Lol.

After one circle at Marina Barrage (there’s this ramp-like structure which is beautifully inclined giving you a great view of the surroundings)… we headed back towards The Shoppes before ending right at the foot of the ArtScience museum.

5.69 km recorded on my RunKeeper.

Sweaty, we walk slowly back to Tanjong Pagar. This would probably be another 3 kilometers by foot. Grabbing Oolong Tea from a 7-11 and chatting about how the CBD area has changed in the past few years. Can you believe that? I’m qualified to evaluate what’s changed in downtown Singapore.

It was a great run and I hope to continue doing my weekly runs every Wednesday.
