running story

so, ran this morn at 7am. but only did 1km+ when cockeyed cockroach had a fall. Poor thing! so we walked....

then went to gym and did my run home from there.
while running under the trees, the leaves blew and i caught one! i thought, "pretty lucky of me, eh?"
(yarh, i talk to myself in my run)

so i took that lucky leaf, held it in my hand and said, " i shall hold on to this leaf till i get home. it's me lucky leaf!"

well, i soon had to cross the road at a traffic light. Somehow, the leaf flew out of my hand onto the road....i felt like stopping to search for mr leaf. BUT, green man was blinking already.....should I sacrifice my safety for a LEAF? i think all those big trucks and buses about to run over me would think i was crazy standing in the middle of the road looking for a leaf.

ANyway, I had to LET it go. i said to myself, "its only a leaf..." i cont running. then ran up this flight of steps to mount faber...then henderson waves....along the way, went up this park attraction....some terrace. Kept running up all the steps and when i got to the top, i said out loud, " OMG!!!!" yarh. really hot by then and super unfit. WHile coming down the steps, met a tree lizard....he scampered when he saw me. I thought for the fun of it, lets chase it....he tried to run away but had no where safe to for about 40m, i was running after this lizard( fun)

and yes....i was laughing "heeehhheeeee" out loud. Mr lizard finally crossed the path to the tree. Darn! LOST him:(

so cont along the bridges. loved the tree-top bridges and coolness of the air. Ran alongside some butterflies....when i got tired, i walked. b4 i knew it, it was 50min and only did 8km!!! ahhh....and had to go out soon. so picked up the pace to run home.

loved love my adventure run!!!
