I did my first 10k in April this year and boy, was it a challenge. I never thought it would be so soon that I would sign up for my next 10k run… But I did!
I signed up for the NESTLÉ® OMEGA PLUS® ACTICOL® Love Your Heart Run on August 17th!
Running as most of you already know, is good for the heart. It trains cardiovascular strength and gets your heart pumping fast! Even though we know we have to take care of our hearts, the sad truth is that nearly 1,400 Singaporeans are hit by sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) and only 2-3% survive. When SCA strikes, it usually does so without warning and is often fatal, but with regular exercise and cardio training, you can take care of your heart.
Thus the NESTLÉ® OMEGA PLUS® ACTICOL® Love Your Heart Run 2013 aims to create awareness amongst Singaporeans on the importance of good heart health and to encourage them to be proactive in taking care of their hearts. Aside from that, they will also donate $1 for every kilometer covered to the Singapore Heart Foundation.
Since I’m doing a 10k, that means I’m donating $10 to the Singapore Heart Foundation! I’m really excited about this because on top of take care of my heart, doing good, I’ll also be running with fellow running enthusiast Genevieve! We’ve done a couple (okay, maybe just one) weekly leisure run together, but on our own, we run regularly with our own running partners.
She may be petite but she sure can run fast and it’ll be great to have her pace me. In the meantime, I really gotta start getting back to running again.
If you’re interested to run with us and take care of your heart, sign up NOW because run registration ends TOMORROW, 22nd July! See you there!
