One-North Run: Why you shouldn't organise a race in November
There's a reason the Guns N Roses song is called November Rain, and not, say, October Rain or December Rain.
I remember it rained during the first Hello Kitty Run in 2014. What month was it held? November.
Yesterday morning, the One-North Run 10km race was cancelled because of the weather.
The flag-off was supposed to be at 6:30am. It didn't happen.
So instead, I joined the 5km race, which was delayed from 7:30am to 8am.
I signed up for this race because this is a part of Singapore I've never been before.
Not a particularly scenic route. It's all just office buildings, albeit with some interesting architecture. I doubt I would want to run here again.
Dig my yellow-and-black race ensemble.
The event area was at the new Mediacorp campus at Mediapolis. The only celebrity I saw and recognised was Felicia Chin.
Remind me not to join any more November races in the future.
