After the 1 week's F1 recess, the Brooks Run Happies got together to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival though the lighted Gardens. Many first-timers joined in this special weekday run, with a number specifically coming down just to bring moon cakes, lanterns and fireworks for the celebrations...the Run Happies were so touched.
To get into the festive mood, there was nothing like adding touches of 'Gangnam' and "Brooksnam' styles to our almost dance-like stretches led by YN. As we pranced and ran along with our lanterns, the group did attract some attention from the Friday party crowd with friendly smiles and waves.
For many of the runners, there was nothing like experiencing the Gardens By The Bay at night carrying lanterns and making merry and getting up close to the SuperTrees. We timed our visit to the SuperTrees to coincide with its nightly music and lighting performance to the delight of the Run Happies. We had nice great video captures of song and dance during our short but interesting stay, before proceeding back to Marina Square for the moon cake delights.
There was quite a din and commotion as all joined in the fun and merry making. The cool down session was replaced by some nifty dancing and jumping about, with lots of photos and videos being captured. After the session ended, we proceeded on to more chit-chat and laughter at the food court with some serious 'business propositions' being put forth.
It was a well spent Friday evening of a different kind - having a healthy workout along a scenic route in the company of a great group of people, topped with celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival. Be sure to join us for the next Brooks Run Happy (Weekdays) as we embark on a series of fresh and interesting challenges.
