I-Run weekly at IBP

Went to the I-Run at International Business park (IBP) for a 10 km run on Wednesday. Reached at the IBP Atrium at around 1745. Managed to find the I-Run booth and registered as first timer. Meet up with Dreamrunner and some of the Sgrunners' members (I forgotten their nicks).

The warming up session began at around 1805, which was conducted by Maverick. As this was my first time running in the I-Run, i planned to tag along with Dreamrunner (Dreamrunner was leading the run). But the initial pace was too fast for me and i decided to follow the other 10 km runners. Bumped into Ironman dreamer along the Ulu Pandan park connector. Reached the half way point at around 33 mins and i was thinking that the distance shouldn't be 5 km. Managed to finished the run in 65 mins and gotta a 100-plus at the end of the run. Realized the run was around 12 km.

Running Route IBP - around 12 km

The running route was quite straight forward with flat terrain along the canal. Along the route, there is one traffic light which caused us to stop before the traffic light was favourable for us to cross.

Overall, it was a good run for me as i could feel the strains and muscle aches after the run. Will try to join the I-Run on next wed.
Below are more details on I-Run, which is being held in 3 different locations.
