Hello Kitty Run!

Two Saturdays ago we went for our first ever run as a family! To add on to that, it was also Kaitlin's first run and also my first run. I know. What have I been doing my entire life?! How is it that I haven't been on a run before? I'm pretty puzzled too, but hey when the year comes to an end I can look back on it and note the run as one of my achievements!

It's also pretty funny how our first run togther is the Hello Kitty Run! 


That was us collecting our race packs! Glad that the queue wasn't all that long when we arrived and that it moved super fast. I was half expecting it would take us at least 20 minutes, but nope, we were done in about 5 minutes!

To be completely honest, I actually regretted for a tad bit that I signed us up. Simply because of the crazy hour we had to wake up to be at the run and other logistics D: Well, we actually got out butts out of bed and went for it so *clap clap* for us. 


We were pretty excited for the run and oh my even before we reached we could anticipate the huge crowd just by the jam that was leading to Sentosa from around the Telok Blangah area. 

When we finally arrived, the crowd was insane and I was like half preparing myself for any tantrums to come and for us to be in a pretty grouchy state. Crowd + waiting forever + lack of sleep is a recipe for disaster. Thankfully though, none of that happened and our moods were still pretty good until...


Jeng jeng jeng! Yes. That's a gloomy sky. A super gloomy sky. I did not edit the photo at all. It was that bad. We were just standing there considering our options to under turn back and avoid the rain or to stay on. We stayed on and kind of hoped for a miracle. That did not happen at all and before we were flagged off it started to drizzle a little and a few minutes later when we just got flagged off it started pouring like crazy. 

Yet again, we weren't sure of what to do so we just ran to the nearest place with shelter. We kind of were going to head back already but while we were following the crowd in front us we ended up at RWS, saw Slappy Cakes and decided to have brekkie and hope for the rain to stop.

We were pretty lucky that we arrived there before the crowd came. There were still a few empty tables left, and awhile later the rain didn't lessen at all and the crowd that wanted to dine there just got bigger. Imagine if we were stuck outside and had to keep walking to find shelter and food. Plus it was still rather early so not everywhere at Sentosa was open yet. It was pretty awesome that Slappy Cakes was just there right in front of us when, like a sign! Hurhur.


I was also excited to try out Slappy Cakes cos I had wanted to hold Kaitlin's third birthday at their branch at The Grandstand. 


That was the first pancake we made and it was for Kaitlin! Hehe look at her cheeky face and how happy she was to be able to nom on pancakes for brekkie! It was fun being able to cook our own pancakes and customize it. Of course we could have easily done this at home but this was much easier in that it was easy for Kaitlin to see and reach and participate in as compared to a normal stove where it's not at her height and can be pretty dangerous. What's more we could sit down and eat as we cooked! We loved the range of batters they had especially the Buttermilk and Peanut Butter ones. 

Finally the rain stopped and we made our way to collect our medals. Yes, we didn't run in the end except for a little while at the start before we were flagged off. We also checked out the Hello Kitty Beach Party which was pretty cool with lots of photo booths, an area to get your nails done and a few other booths. All had queues so while I would have loved to take pictures and get Hello Kitty decorated nails I didn't want to make Kaitlin and Daddy Li queue up with me. Afterall, we all know how waiting and queueing will be like when there's a toddler who's nap time is approaching. I didn't want there to be a meltdown situation and for our happy morning to turn into a grumpy one. Perhaps next time!


On that note, I got to say Kaitlin was such a little champ that day. Though we didn't run the race itself, she did run towards the area where we were going to be flagged off and had fun while at it. In fact she was pretty excited about the whole Hello Kitty run event. This girl gave us no tantrums at all and just waited patiently in the heat then had to deal with the rain. Not forgetting the insane crowd!  It's pretty common for Kaitlin to throw tantrums on a daily basis even till now so that day when she didn't despite everything I was amazed. Even when it started drizzling she was still alright with that. When it started pouring heavily she took instructions well and co-operated and even held the brolly. It was such a tiring day for all of us but this little girl took it all so well. So majorly proud of her! Definitely looking forward to attending more races with this girl! I know she won't run all the way and not every time will be like this time with no tantrums but it's all for the experience! I would really just sign us up for other races if not for having to wake up insanely early and for all the logistics..well we'll see!

Each group is "seeded", or rated, within its region from 1 to 16. After an preliminary 4 video games between 8 lower-ranked teams, the tournament happens during the course of three weekends, at pre-selected neutral sites across the United States. Groups, seeded by ranking, proceed with a solitary game elimination bracket starting with a first round including 64 teams, to a "Sweet Sixteen", and also for the last weekend of the competition, a Final Four.
