I have been casually participating in various runs since I did the BHP Orange Run in 2007. I run alone, originally because no one wanted to run along despite promises of cupcakes and massages. Eventually I began to
enjoy like being a solo runner because I don’t have to worry about running too fast or too slow and can adjust it according to my own pace and state of mind (ooh, cute guy at 3 o’clock, time to slow down to say hello, et cetera).
Anyway, I have been asked to share any Runs that is happening in and around the city so I will do so as and when I come across them. Please note that I don’t necessarily take part in these Runs. 5Ks and 10Ks are regular distances that I cover at least once each in my weekly training. But I do like running outdoors and in the occasional races for a change of a scenery coz running on the treadmill can feel a little hamster-ish after a while. When I do these Runs I normally don’t bother about time or speed, it is mostly just to have fun and check out the freebies in the goodie bag.
