The running event was held last week on a Sunday in Putrajaya. I ran a 5 km route and it was an easy run. I expected Putrajaya to be blazing hot but surprisingly it was not that morning. So that was refreshing! I finished my run in 36.57 minutes. Yaaayy! Got a nice medal at the finish line and ... I'm a happy girl!
Turned out it wasn't much of a carnival. In fact, it can't be called a carnival because runners didn't flock the place after they finished their run. The so called carnival was deserted! There are lots of canopies erected but most of it were empty. But we can find food and drinks alright. Haha.
The performance at the stage nearby provided some entertainment to the runners alright. But the whole event wasn't as happening as I thought it would be. I expected a CARNIVAL but no... I didn't see that on the day of the event. Heheh.
The most dissappointing thing is to still see some runners and their supporters still throwing rubbish anywhere they like but at the rubbish bin. This event didn't stress much of this awareness I guess. Runners joined the event to run, finish it, get their medals and go home. They have nothing related to 3R which is Reduce, Reuse and Recycle in their minds after leaving the event.
Good thing is, runners' spirits were high as always regardless of the distance they ran.
Aaannnd here come the photos and selfies. Huhu.
