Experience The Passion Experience The Run
That was the tagline for Sunday’s Saucony 100 PLUS Passion Run 2009 which took place at East Coast Park. It was my first race of the year and I was registered for the 15km (non-competitive) event.
The race started bright and early on a glorious and scorching hot Sunday. Here at the start point, every runners were eagerly waiting for the flag-off.
After a sapping workout in their respective race distance, runners crossed the finish line with relief and made a beeline for the drink stations. The winning time for men’s 15km (competitive) was 51 minutes! I crossed the line at a respectable 1 hour 20 minutes (unofficial time) for my 15km run. I’ve got lots of catching up to do!
Update: My official timing was 1 hour 16 minutes 19sec.
That’s me chilling out with my 100 PLUS. Cooling….
Here’s a look at the goodie bag runners earned.
This is the finisher’s medal, it goes into the collection and time to get back to the rigor of training for the next race.
