Whew! I was very unsure about this race from the beginning. I put off signing up until the day before the first deadline and even then, I couldn’t decide which distance to run. I was scared of what happened to me in Singapore. I felt so tired and dehydrated from the whole thing that it took me a week to recover from a 10k. A WHOLE WEEK! AHHH! :<
I eventually decided on running 21k because no day like today? (Or yesterday in this case)

If you didn’t notice (and how could you not :<) this year’s blog posts have all been about running! I guess it came as a sort of secondary New Year’s resolution for me with my main one being losing weight! All of a sudden my priorities shifted and instead of losing weight being my goal, it morphed into a hybrid of running at least one 10k race a month and shedding the pounds. Actually, losing weight became a sort of prize along with the finisher medals (That’s right, Simon Sinek!) I decided onraces instead of regular 10k runs because waking up for them is one of the hardest parts! I didn’t want to mention this before for fear that I might not be able to hold up my end of the bargain early on.
Almost anything Star Wars is an A+ in my book (one exception being Jar Jar Binks)! I found out about this run right after we finished the Viper Challenge in February and I immediately signed up for it. The most difficult part was picking between the Light Side or Dark Side for runner entitlements!
Here we go, The Dark Side! (Source: @micca.dj Instagram)
