Obi-Pan Kenobi at Star Wars Run SG 2017

So… I’ve NEVER ever did something like this before. Dress up and go out. Furthermore, I’m not really that crazy about Star Wars. But somehow after hearing about the Star Wars Run SG 2017, I simply wanted to represent the Light Side because almost ALL of my friends like to be on the dark side. Me being me, I just like being the opposite of what everyone else likes.

So I’m going as a Jedi. “Obi-Wan Kenobi”. Or you can call me “Obi-Pan Kenobi”.

My brother who works in China currently heard about me wanting to go dressed up as a Jedi and helped me find an outfit online in China, got it shipped to his addressed then brought it back for me. It fit perfectly, however due to the layers of cloth, the sides keep dropping off like bra straps. I added some velcro to it. Problem solved.

Now, the challenge is heat stroke. How am I going to run 10km in this gear and with a lightsaber no less. I think I will be a mess of sweat at the finishing line. lol. Let’s see what happens. I’m not going for timing. Just going for the fun of it.

If you see me, do say hi. ;)

#Maythe4thBeWithYou

Update: I feel sick on race day and was running a fever instead. I got changed and struggled for 1hour on the decision not to go for the run. Sad. So disappointed. :(

Beauty my vice

You are too distracting.
I’ll stop to take a look. Then turn back for a second look.
I’ll stop to smile and soak in the feels.

You are too correct.
The lines. The curves. The diagonals.
The colours. The smells. The timing and pace.
Simply nothing I want changed.

There you are and then you’re gone.
I thought I saw you, but I did not.
At least I saw you in my mind even if I did not.

Why are you so seldom.
Never around enough.
Yet appearing when I’ve no time for you.
Just a little beyond reach.

Beauty my vice.

SDM 2017 10km 50mins

YAY! I hit my target of 10km under 50mins! My personal best so far. Have been training for it and psyching myself in preparation for this. One week I even did 3 x 10kms just to build the endurance.

Andy from office joined me and because I was a Sundown with Love Ambassador, we could flag off right at the front with the elite runners. Felt really weird because they look so pro, but both of us looked so normal. lol.

Ashik from office also have been spurring me on as one of my practice runs, he was pacing me. His 10km is already sub 50mins, so perfect run partner for me.

Andy is also a Sundown with Love Ambassador and he is attempting his 1st ever Marathon! Respects. I’m so inspired by his journey. You can read more about it at his blog. Glad to have caught him before he started his run.

After completing 10km with Andy, Linda and Ashik was getting ready for their 21km, so all the best to them. Till the next run!
