Jogging @ Bedok Reservior (勿洛蓄水池)
This message is specially written for New Century's staff.
Located in the eastern part of Singapore, the shoreline of Bedok Reservoir (indicated in red marking, our running route) is 4.3km which has an average depth of 9 m. It is a man-made reservoir completed in year 1986 in Bedok New Town then. This reservoir has indeed come a long way since; in recent years we have had witnessed a series of international water sporting events initiated by Singapore Sports Council.
One of the popular jogging venues around, come 31 Oct, Friday it will be our company's health activity for the month. A fast & fit runner can cover the 4.3 km well under 20 mins but an average one can easily complete one round within half an hour, with minutes to spare even. If running is too daunting for some, fret not...for leisure walking around the reservoir can still be covered in an hour. Whatever activity one may choose, there's always something for everyone.
Those who have signed up for the year end Stanchart Marathon but have yet commenced any form of training due to busy schedule, you can well consider taking one bold step forward. Remember, the key to confidence building is finishing the race, never mind how much it takes to complete. Nothing is too daunting as long as one's mind is set to finish the task ahead.
Hope to see active participations in this activity!
