My Little Pony Friendship Run 2016!

So we finally got our bums up early last Sunday morning! Thanks to SPRG, our pony dreams came true and we participated in first ever My Little Pony Friendship Run!! The We usually sleep in on Sunday if we can but just for the My Little Pony Friendship Run, we made an exception :D

Oh and I say if we can, because that's usually dependent on how early/late Kaitlin wakes up and also..usually it's only one of us that's up with Kaitlin and *coughs* no prizes for guessing which parent's the one that's up!


Before I forget to add! This run marks our second family run :D The last time we went for a race it was for the first ever Hello Kitty Run and well if you went for that run you would probably know that there wasn't much of a run because it rained :( The husband of course had to add that it may rain for the My Little Pony Friendship Run as well and we probably wouldn't get to run and I just shot him the death stare face cos really?! Don't jinx it!

We definitely were super glad that it didn't pour on Sunday and in fact the weather was super lovely! While it was a little sunny which made it a little difficult to keep our eyes open when we took pics with all the cute little pony cut-outs, it wasn't crazy hot! Perf weather for running!



Check out these super cute cut-outs of the ponies! There were other photo ops too but our faves were the ponies plus the queues weren't that long. In fact if you go at the right timing like we did, the photo opp queues were shorter than the queues at the Ponyville Marketplace booths!



Oh and in case if you we wondering if we really did run? Yes of course we did! We decided not to be part of the huge crowd that was forming right at the front cos it was more about having fun and enjoying the race than winning it.


There were actually lots of families in front of us and also along the way there would be participants from the other race categories so it was sometimes hard to run cos it was pretty crowded and some people were just strolling but hey when there was space we did! And Kaitlin ran too! So glad she did and no complaints from her or any of those mood swing moments and sulking. She did say her feet hurt after we ran really fast for a distance almost nearing the end of the race so we slowed down for a bit then sprinted once we saw the finish line!

1KM wasn't that far, Daddy Li took it like a breeze and Kaitlin managed it but tbh I haven't exercised since like last November so that's like really been awhile and I was actually relieved that I managed to finish it cos seriously if I didn't I would be majorly judging my own fitness level lol.

It kind of jammed up once we finished the race and were going to collect our medals but luckily we didn't have to wait crazy long, so while the bub did ask a couple of times what was going on and telling us that she was feeling sweaty and wanted to get her medal it was thankfully manageable. I was worried she would start throwing a tantrum cos of the waiting and being hot and grimy but we got our medals and yes out of that crowd! Huge sigh of relieve cos it would have been hard to deal with a tantrum with it being that packed and I wouldn't have approved of her throwing a tantrum from being impatient + feeling hot and sticky. I would have been firm to her and told her that she shouldn't complain and should learn to be more patient which can swing two ways..either she listens or she doesn't cooperate and throws a bigger tantrum which could eventually end up with her crying. So yes, real glad none of that happen!


I'm sure the MLP Friendship Run will always be a special memory for us because we don't really go for much organised family activities and this is one of the few of them and it went terrific! Plus, we'll have our medals and pony plushies to remind us of the run! Thanks again to SPRG for having us and making every My Little Pony lover's dream come true, we had a blast!
