Running Through MacRitchie Reservoir

Another thing on my to do list in Singapore was to go on the tree top walk at MacRitchie Reservoir Park. This past Sunday, I finally made the trip, which I realized was not too far from my apartment. I was reminded that I live in one of the most amazing places in the world. The fact that I have access to amazing nature reserves less than 30 minutes from my apartment is pretty unbelievable. On the trail I did see some monkeys and luckily no snakes. I was really blown away by the beauty and peace here. I felt like I stepped into the jungle and most of the time on the trails I was the only person.

It was my first time there and I knew there was a 10km loop that I could make around the whole reservoir. After about 6 km, I finally reached the tree top walk! However, getting back to the starting point was not an easy task. I couldn’t really leave the trail anywhere on the path. I had to walk to certain exit points. I didn’t want to risk going on a trail that led me somewhere else from the starting point. I didn’t know if there would be a bus or taxis that would be easily accessible, so I decided to go all the way back to my starting point and complete the loop. However, I got a bit lost on my way.  A few hours later I made it back and according to my nike run app, I ran and walked a total of 15.5 km!! Next time, I’m going to figure out how to get on the right trail…

Of course I took some pictures on my iphone while I was running.photo (83)photo (89) photo (88) photo (87) photo (86) photo (85) photo (84) photo (90)photo (91)

I’m also participating in a race tomorrow, which will cross off #6 on my list. Being the goal-centered person that I am,  I’m currently working on coming up with a list of cafes/dessert places to check out in Singapore. Let me know if you have any good suggestions or just want to join me for good desserts. 🙂
