Zoo Run

Hey guys, sorry that i didn't update as much as last time. It's not that i didn't have time or stuff, but the fact is i didn't do anything naughty except going commando for a few times. For me, i can't write stories nor fake a scenario as i am more of a visual and fact person. I need to experience it or even see it so i can really type out what i had been through. I know there are good authors in the world, but sadly, i am not one of them. So guys, forgive me if i didn't update much.
Tonight i am going to tell you guys what i had done on last Saturday at the Zoo run, so stay tuned.

Last Sunday, i took part in a 10km run with my 2 youngest male cousins, a female cousin which older than me by 1 year and my aunt at the Zoo ( Night safari ). We didn't run much actually as we walked from the start until the remaining 4km. The event starts at 7am but we reached at the zoo at 6.20am. Registration took us 5 to 10 min and the rest of the time, we were basically 'rotting' at the shelter. At first, there wasn't many people, maybe like 10 to 15 people around, but as the time goes by, the place started to fill with orange colour shirt. We were given the Zoo Run T-shirt ( Orange )when we registered and we are required to wear it for the run. For me, i wore the shirt with a purple extra small FBT shorts which i regretted after reaching zoo. I purposely wore a smaller size as the t-shirt was 3 size bigger ( suppose to be my uncle's ), so if i wear a smaller size FBT, i can make it as if i am just wearing the t-shirt only. Honestly, it didn't show much, except it was tighter and parts of my butt cheek can be seen clearly. That's was the reason which i regretted. The Mosquito in zoo were really scary. They don't just 'bite' our hands, legs or face, but my butt cheek too. At least 3 to 4 bites on my both butt cheek and that was before the run started, imagine what i had suffered for 10k!!!

The run started at 7.10am sharp and it was really crowded with people. My female cousin and i were being squeezed like sardine. I know i had attracted a few attentions as i overheard a group of male runners which was just right behind me, talking about my attire but i am not sure whether it is positive comments or negative, which i don't really care . We walked on a very slow pace, until the extend of no one is infront or behind us. All thanks to my aunt, she keep taking photos of her 2 sons. Every habitat also need to take 1 photo. A bit annoying but also thanks to her, that i am able to come to Zoo Run.

We walked for about an hour to an hour half before my cousin and i become impatient so we, so called 'abandoned ' my aunt and started jogging. I think the distances we jogged were lesser than 4k but base on what the usher told us, it was 4k plus.

My cousin and i were jogging at first, but after 1 to 2km, we were literally running, chasing the people infront of us and worst of all, i am carrying a drawstring bag and big shirt. I managed to tuck in and folded up the sleeves while catching up with her. Honest saying, i am able to run at the same pace without stopping, but she was doing interval running. When we catch up with the person infront of us, she will run at normal speed, but when she saw another person infront of us, her speed will increase, in order to catch up with that person. I was literally suffering when she speeds up but I think we had over-take quite a numbers of people before reaching the finishes line.

When we crossed the finishes line, I was perspiring profusely, and my t-shirt was literally soaked. Tough training for someone who didn't run recently. She was perspiring too, but not as much as i am. We stood near to the toilet entrance while waiting for my aunt and cooling our self down. It didn't take long before they reaches the finishes line, but they were literally walking until the end.

After cleaning up her son, my aunt went to the ladies to change her clothes. I was thinking of following her but i am too lazy and the queue was quite long. In the end, i removed my shirt at scene and changed into a dry tee. My female cousin were shocked when i did that, and even tried to cover me as people started to look at our direction. She scolded me crazy after i had done changing but my reason to her was, ' i was wearing a sport bra inside, so nothing to scare' and she give me that LOL face!!!

After my aunt changed her shirt, we managed to grab a cab home but in the end, i have to take a bus home from her house.

Small note : For my CNY post, I posted what i wore because quite a few readers were asking about my attires during CNY, so i promised them that i will find a day and update on my blog, so whoever had asked me, those were the dresses i wore.
