What an amazing event. This is the second year running that I was privileged to represent Cerebos as an employee at the Singapore Standard Chartered Marathon 10km event. As I was 2nd women overall last time, Daniel – (thanks Daniel!) was able to enter me in the VIP section and I could line up at the front of the race. This was awesome as there were over 20,000 runners in the 10km alone. This year, Haile Gebrselassie, the amazing long distance runner was also racing, so I took along a fabric marker just in case…. lets just say my singlet is being framed as we speak.
Having not done as much running in preparation as last year I was happily surprised to run almost the exact same time, which placed me 5th overall woman (1st non-Kenyan). It was exciting to hear from friends and family back home soon after as the LIVE SKY Sport coverage had a long segment of me running down the finishing stretch !
Congrats especially to the ANZ Cerebos Team and all 130 Cerebos employees who completed the event. We were treated to fantastic Coffee at Toby’s Estate during the lead in and were fully race prepped with BRAND’s Essence of Chicken. We also adventured around Gardens by the Bay, Raffles, Orchard Road, and up the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Such a fun trip, I hope this Health and Wellness initiative continues for many years.
Yatte Minahare !
