At Seletar Reservoir, a young sporty runner in his "huaraches" saw HappyFeet heading toward the zoo, and mentioned to her that the mandai road running paths to the zoo are blocked by many fallen trees and still accessible by using the main road! HappyFeet smiled and said , " Okie ..Thanks! " and continued toward the Zoo direction.
And true, the running path was blocked, she ran along the side of main road before she decided that it was not wise to run with her back facing the on-coming Bike terrors and Big Road monsters. :P She U-Turned toward the Sembawang road direction. HappyFeet did not managed to visit her "friends" at the zoo. :(
Then HappyFeet saw the fast water flowing down this canal, and there was a running path next to the canal , she ran with the "flow" . She was very glad that she did, the canal run was quite scenic .. clear and clean water, people fishing there and also, a man in the canal harvesting the aqua plants ! Next time, she will go back with her LX3 to capture those scenes.
This detour led her to Lentor Road and she ended her "SQ" run after looping round the Bottle tree Park. Distance Covered 27km ... Opps.. 8km short. DO is satisfied , but HappyFeet is not so "happy" with continuous concrete pounding! :) Tomorrow 's 25km trail run will make her more happy. :)
