LSD Run, 25/9

punggol
Wake up late this morning. Decided to run to Punggol Jetty for my LSD run . The fact that i have not run to this one of the few remote ends of Singapore which is near my nest( especially after reading in Sgrunner.com forum that both Gentle n Dreamrunner had already done so!) just prompted me to just run there.
Started my run at 6.30am via upper Serangoon road then followed the roads which cut through Sengkang and Punggol Estate along the river flowing into Punggol End. The morning air was cool and breezy making my run very comfortable and nice ( at times i thought i was running in temperate countries ) It was just the ideal weather conditions for running, and i hardly sweat ... Hope that the weather of Singapore Marathon in December can be just like this morning.
There was little traffic on these recently constructed roads and even fewer people or joggers. Except, when i turned into Punggol End, there was a huge tent near the road with a Camera Crews filming of a batch of army guys in full SBO and heavy camouflage in the forested area. Wondering, if MediaCorps is now " The Soldiers" after their successful " The Maids"..... Reached the Punggol Jetty in 1hr 2mins and spent 2mins there to absorb the scenic views and cool breeze before making a U-turn back. Ended my run at Rio Vista near Hougang Ave 7 in 1hr 45mins.
