Finally after the 3km, I reached the first checkpoint where I enjoyed a quick sip of Mountain Dew. Despite being tired, I continued on, not stopping for breaks. Not seeing the runners from my party, I thought I must be far behind, so I was determined to catch up. When I reached my second checkpoint, one of the guides keep showing the number 6, I was surprised that I managed to reach 6km faster than I expected to.
After the second checkpoint, the third checkpoint seemed like it was just around the next corner. So I kept on running and hopping to catch a glimpse of the finish line. As I approached the end, the final leg of the run involved running up a hill. But because it was so close to end, I did not want to stop for a break. Finally after a 1 hour 27 minutes 42 seconds, I crossed the finish line. Even though running is not exactly my favourite thing to do, I am glad I signed up for this. I would like to thank Jonathan Moh and Hoo Sze Ling for nudging me to sign up, where else before I was lamenting at how I allowed them to convince me into signing!"
