<= The one who started except LonelyRunner who is taking this picture.
We started with a good slow comfortable chit-chat pace towards Ford Road, U-turn and back to where we started. Penguin decided do her transition to bike and left us after about 6km.
The weather was very good this morning as we continue Eastwards. Balasing decided to loop at the lagoon and U-turn back to MacD first. We were left with 5. Kay was doing well today although he did a 9.5km macritchie trail run the morning before. After Bedok jetty, he decided to left us.
We reached near carpark F2 before gentle greeted us and joind us towards the east end. We reached the sailing centre at a very comfortable pace and started to venture into new running path. The new running path is very scenery but a bit of hot at this time as the Sun finally came out of the clouds and the trees along the way could not shelter us from the Sun energy.
<= penguin and her IRONHORSE waiting for us.
Penguin followed us behind (safety escort) from this point onwards. We reached our U-turn point comfortably but I started to feel a bit of strain (probably due to my last 2 days runs). Also started to feel the stress from the sun heat, I started to drink more frequently from here.

After gentle left us, Kay was running just in front of us and we joined up again at the Lagoon and continued towards the end point at a steady pace.
4 of us finally finished up our half marathon after about 2hrs 12min. A very good timing considered we were chitchatting for the first 2/3 of the run. For the rest of the runners who joined and did not run the full distance with us, it is a great achievement as well. The most important is to enjoy the ourselves......Good job guys!! and also the 3 ladies!!
<= After the Run before we proceeded to MacD for our "evil" breakfast.
After the Run:
We went to MacD again!! Yes, to replenish our energy loss before we headed home for the rest of the sunny Sunday.
Cheers............"The most difficult thing for a morning runner is to get our ass out of our bed. But once you step out of the door, your morning run is half done."
