For the first time, we signed up for the cold storage kids’ run!!!
While the girl has always been running and jumping around like a monkey all the time, the daddy said she only has speed but no stamina. So this weekend we decided to start her training for the 800m run!
Headed down to NUS running track and started with some warm up exercises.
Check out that look of drive, energy, and determination. Let’s hope it lasts through the whole run!
And they kicked off! The daddy said they’ll only do one round (400m) today. He had to tell her to run slowly in case she burns off all her energy too early in the race…
And they return after the first round! …… Not without incident though cos near the end of the round, the princess had a dramatic fall!
But well trained through all past accidents and incidents, she picked herself up to complete the race! *beams with pride*
(that’s of course after some TLCs from the daddy and then grabbing his hand to make sure she doesn’t fall again. :p )
Back to the grandstand where mommy waited (well, someone had to stay back to watch the valuables right???), the two runners drowned themselves with mouthfuls of water on this hot hot day… before my girl suddenly said, “Papa, let’s do it again!”
SURPRISED! According to the daddy, she was actually quite tired out – hence the earlier fall. But since she asked for it, we happily obliged!
So off they went again…
Tired but not defeated…
… here’s her making the final dash towards the finishing line after the second round (800m)…
And she made it!
Check out the look of a champion. Tired, yet triumphant.
And with the end of the run, the daddy and daughter did the cooling down exercises…
… and the final touch that only a princess will remember – applying your “lipstick”! (she dug my whole bag in search of my lipbalm!) Cos you need to look good no matter how sweaty you may be. :p
