Happy weekend, despite not doing the SCMS 2011...
Last Sunday was the much-awaited Singapore Standard Chartered Marathon.
I signed up for the half-marathon, but I ended up staying at home because of some injury.
Uhm, I did think of still doing the run because I've been prepping for it. However, I chose to be smarter and decide to stay home to further recover.
Still, it turned out to be a great weekend because several friends from Manila flew in for the run.
Last Friday, Jamie and Rosvie arrived. Jamie was doing the half-marathon with Ian, while Ros signed up for the 10K.
I wish I could have spent more time with Jamie and Ros, but due to you know what already, I had very limited time with them. Boo!
Of all the weekends to get sick. :-/
Also in town were friends from uni Ella and Gino. Gino did the full marathon. Woohoo! Way to go, Gino.
Ella and I were supposed to meet up Sunday night, but she got stuck somewhere so we had to cancel.
Good thing I was able to see her and Gino on Monday. There was even a bonus. Another friend from uni, Sam, joined us. Apparently, she moved here from Australia with her hubby and kids January this year.
So, even if I didn't get to do the half-mary, it was still an awesome weekend thanks to dear friends.
It's always, always nice to see friends from home.
