Today marks my 5th GEWR (Great Eastern Women’s Run) since I first started joining in 2017! Over the years, I’ve pretty much joined yearly except for 2020 (COVID) and 2022 (I was overseas!) but otherwise, it’s a regular affair just for the kicks and the collection of badges hahaha.
This year was slightly different because I actually have someone going with me – for moral support / to root for me, thanks to the mister for waking up super early on a Sunday morning (630am!) to head over to Sports Hub where the run would be held.
Joining the sea of red, this is a women and girls only run (100M Dash / 2KM / 5KM / 10KM / 21.1KM for all ages), so your male partner/family won’t be able to join you for the run. They can stand by the sidelines along the route (cordoned off), or be like the mister .. go for his own 5KM run at the Sports Hub while waiting for you.
It was overall a great feeling of accomplishment to complete the race, whether you’re walking or jogging/running. Think I made it to 2.4KM of jogging before I hit my limit and walked/slight jog to the finish line. All that for a well deserved medal, a welfare breakfast box, drinks and a towel to round up this race!
What’s even more satisfying? Haha.. enjoying an early morning McDonald’s Breakfast Deluxe with the mister as a reward for a great job done for both of us! We only shared la, so I was ravenous by lunch time! Also took this opportunity to snap photos and test the mattress for an upcoming sponsored post for Origin Mattress – stay tuned for that post 🙂
Meanwhile, was so happy that the mister went out to buy lunch for both of us and it was my favourite bibimbap with plenty of veggies and a huge portion to cover my craving~ We spent the rest of the day just chilling and spending time together watching anime/napping/doing our own things. I love such downtime and the awesome companionship feel with him + it’s the best way to end a Sunday right before the weekend begins.
Hope your weekend was just as good as mine!
