Siemens 10K Run 2011

The racing season is back again for me and my running crazy wife :D We just completed our first of a series of races for the next two months. The Siemens 10K run was held this morning and I must say that it was a beautiful race. The weather was excellent, the atmosphere was electric and the run was invigorating.

A big congrats goes out to the wife for completing the race in her personal best 10K time and now she's looking forward to taking on next week's 16.8K Adidas King of The Road. That girl has gone crazily mad over running ... LOL!

Though the race distance is something I do every other day for my training runs, I still had the jitters at the starting line waiting for the race to start. The last minute announcement of a change of route to avoid a clash with another race nearby didn't help calm the jitters one bit! I hate running routes that I'm not prepared for but there was no use complaining about it.

The race itself, though a little exhausting cos of the many inclines along the route was pretty fun :D All that training I do almost everyday came to fruition with me setting a good pace from start to finish completing the run in 52.29 in position 57 and getting a hard earned medal to boot :D

If he thinks I'm going to give him this medal back, he's sadly mistaken ... muahahaha!
I'm already looking forward to the next race but right now though, I need to go grab a much deserved nap from having to wake up at 4.30am in the morning to prepare for the race.


  1. Great job, Pebbles! Hahaha Sorry...Nick & wife.

    You love for running is sure infectious. ^^

    Catching up on sleep this afternoon? ;p

  2. LOL. Love Pebble's lil' evil thoughts of keeping the medal for herself. Can't deny that it looks very good on her!

  3. Lina - Pebbles had this blur look while I was trying to put the medal on her ... LOL!

    Yes, I seriously need to catch up on lost sleep.

  4. Terra - And she would keep it too if she had her way. She's very possessive of things we give her :D

  5. bole posraju the fluffy and the medal over ka?

  6. I love to see married couples run together,, please send my congrat to your wife ya.....

  7. I am seriously impressed with you and wife's mad running skills!

    Pebbles looks CRAZY cute with the medal!

    And just for the record, I think waking up at 430am is INSANE!
