#Mission2013: Race No. 7 – SCM 2013

?????

Three months and thirteen days later, I’m finally gonna attempt to gather my thoughts and all the joyous moments shoved somewhere in my head to get it out for this post. It’s been way too long I know.. And I’ve been ‘sweeping it off under the carpet’ all these stuff that’s been happening in my life since then.

So,  ‘Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem’ (In the name of Allah, most gracious, most merciful) – Let’s begin.

Sunday December 1st 2013 – the day I looked forward to end my #Mission2013 with a Bang! – My first 10KM running event! It’s been such a wonderful running experience all of 2013 – By Allah’s SWT grace and blessings, I’ve turned out to be a totally different person and I’m so loving it! Naaah.. I have no 6-packs or killer arms like Madonna or Michelle Obama *yet* – but I’ve overcame challenges which I’d never imagine ever would be possible for someone like me!

Though things didn’t turn out as I’d planned or imagined it to be, I think we as family did pretty alright.. Our end of 2013 came out to be quite a challenging few weeks for us. #TheRunningPartner had an emergency stay at the hospital, Syukur Alhamdullilah (Thank You Allah SWT), all went well but sadly, he had to miss his first 42KM event – which I seriously believe was indeed blessings in disguise.

Couldn’t run, no problem! We could still take it slow, appreciate the good life and just be with the famfam. So off we went to pick up our SCM2013 race packs!

It's RacePack Collection Day!

It’s Race Pack Collection Day!

With hardly any runs made to prep ourselves up prior to race day, we decided not to fret about it.. We’ve all agreed to make the best of it and just have some fun. In a gist, no time to catch up on training, we’re just gonna keep it active – so, off for a morning walk we went..

With another day left before the day, we took a totally chillax AM Walk at the Singapore Botanic Gardens that Saturday morning.. And it was the best time to be there.. the morning sun was just beautiful!

The timing didn’t matter cos I didn’t train hard for it. It’s the completion of my own #Mission2013 was my overall success – Who would have thought eh? So.. Be very very careful the next time you challenge yourself for truly, you’re just gonna blow your own mind – way out of this world! #humbled #empowered

And so.. this was how I ended my #Mission2013 – Thank You All for supporting me in more ways than one.. Here’s to #RunLikeAGirl!
