Running the Big Walk again (2017 edition)

The last time I joined the Big Walk was during SG50.

I ran to be first across the finish line, but didn't get directions because I wasn't wearing the Big Walk T-shirt and went the wrong way and ended up not first.

Yesterday morning, I wore the T-shirt but still ended up fourth (I think).

That was because I arrived at the start line too late and was stuck behind too many walkers.

For the first time, I saw President Halimah Yacob, who flagged off the Big Walk this year. She's very short.

I certainly wasn't the only person running the Big Walk.

I overtook this guy, but then he later overtook me just before the finish line, the bastard.

Total distance: 8.5km.

So it appears my running year isn't over yet.
