CSC Run By The Bay: I saw an otter

CSC stands for Civil Service Club.

Flag-off for the half marathon category in CSC Run By The Bay on Saturday was 5.15pm. Yes, it was sunny and a bit hot for a race.

I grabbed my first cup of H-Two-O after the 7km mark, which meant I had pretty much given up. I just wasn't feeling it.

I went to pee twice for the first time in a race.

Also, I saw an otter for the first time, near the Otters Crossing sign no less. I was surprised by how big the animal was. It was like a seal with legs.

This was one of those races where I swore I would never sign up for another half marathon again. It was my second worse 21km performance ever.

Whatever form I had for the Army and Bintan half marathons is gone.

Maybe it was the heat. Maybe it was the lack of sleep. Maybe it was the shoes. Maybe it's just my overall lack of fitness.

This was the second time I joined an evening half marathon and both times, I did miserably. So maybe I just don’t do well in night races.

At least I saw an otter.
