Caught: My first Pokemon Run

So I joined the Pokemon Run with my daughter late yesterday afternoon.

My first running event of the year and it’s a 5km fun run.

The start line was at Marina Barrage.

Yes, I was wearing an action camera on my head. I’m one of those guys.

We skipped the Fire Zone obstacle because of the queue.

We did the Electric Zone obstacle because the queue was short.

It turned out to be the most fun part of the run.

Back to the barrage.

My daughter struggled up the big slope before the finish line.

I laughed when she complained about it because I had complained about the same slope at the
Newton Challenge. Twice.

It’s no longer a bug. It’s a feature.

After crossing the finish line, I queued for half an hour for the free cotton candy...

... while my daughter queued for an hour for the free popcorn.

One last picture with the giant Pikachu before heading home:
