First Run with my girl at Cold Storage Kids Run 2018

[ Media Invite ]

This morning, I enjoyed the First Run with my girl at Cold Storage Kids Run 2018. Location was at Sentosa, near to Beach Station.

We arrived earlier and promptly got ourselves a cup of milo. We were fortunate as we heard the carparkย  was full and many runners were delayed.




As we make our way to the start point, sea of Green and White crowded Sentosa Palawan beach area. Kids were dashing, parents were anticipating with their handphones for perfect photo moments.


Festive atmosphere. We can actually participate in fun events (including bouncing castles) before the race starts. Might not be a good idea for younger kids in case they exert too much energy ๐Ÿ™‚

Kiwi (one of the mascots) ready to flag off the 2km category. We had signed up for the Fruity Family Run as I was not sure whether my girl was enthusiastic about 2 km.

Very competitive kids, they were dashing to the start point. Hello, race has not started yet ๐Ÿ™‚


I would commend the Cold Storage Kids Run organisers for a well organised run. Runners were guided into wait pens, they were allow to run in waves to minimised congestion. The process and flow was both neat and with safety in mind.

Parents who are waiting at the end-point must have a matching “wrist-tag” in order to pickup their child. This is a good measure to ensure kids will not be lost.

More mascots for photo opportunities. The DJ keep repeating “Baby shark”, toddlers are happy but poor parents (my ears!)

And so we got ready for 800m. The moment we gather at the race pen, I know this would be easy peasy for Boon Xin and me.

Looking around, Boon Xin is easily a head taller than the other participants, all are so young and so short hee hee.

Kudos to the families who have decided to stat Sunday early and enjoy a healthy bonding opportunity.

I am going to keep my Cold Storage Kids Run tattoo for one more day

This is our first solo run, I hope the 800m will be a start for more runs to come. You may refer to our family’s running adventures here (tagged running).


I suspect the route might be even shorter, two turns and we are done. It was too easy for Boon Xin, she had only just warm up ๐Ÿ™‚

Video (YouTube link) : We had Fun along the route, but we noticed many families were hogging the center lane too. If you are walking , keep to the left please.


Well done,ย ้˜ฟๅฆน (Ah Mei)!

Among the different running categories, there was a 2km Besties Trail for the toddlers. Instead of obstacle courses, there are various checkpoints for families to learn about nutrition.

.. and is this toddler cute or not? She was just following in her Daddy’s foot step, and she earned loud applauses from the spectators and volunteers.

More fun activities await families after their run. Refreshment, fruits and you can find popcorn and cotton candy too.

We heard some of the finishers did not got their medals, I hope the organisers will followup quickly.

We hope more families had enjoyed a Good Morning workout with family.

I am so proud of my girl and happy that she had decided to join me in a solo run.ย First Run with my girl yes!

(Given an option, she would prefer to shop with Mom or perhaps enjoy food trips)

Running with Cold Storage Kids

SengkangBabies sent the whole contingent down to Cold Storage Kid’s Run last month. Thanks to Marina Bay for the sponsorship ๐Ÿ™‚

We arrive early and went under the checkpoint. Daddy told kids to pose like winners ๐Ÿ™‚
We know it will be crowded later.

Heng family (BPDG) and Tan Family joined us to run around the Padang today Yeah !

The participants today are not only the young ones. Daddy will run with Kang and Yi, and even Mummy will tag team with Boon Xin.

Before the race, Mascots are roaming around to warm the kids up.

Boon Wee and Denver’s age group will get to go first, but they are in different groups.

Batch by batch, the kids Dash down the road when the airhorn is Blasted. This is 1600m category, kids are supposed to pace themselves ooops.

Parents are always eager to see how their kids perform, as they try to identify their little darlings among the crowd.

Wei and Denver have to clear 1,600M each. So Proud of them ๐Ÿ™‚

Wei’s result :p

In life, there will always be ups and downs. We only wish our kids will pick themselves up after each fall, and learn from their mistakes.

A lot of parent bloggers were here this morning, but we only bump into Edmund and Sakura.

Daddy accompanied Kang on his 800M jog. Kang is happy to complete his circuit, and got rewarded with a medal ๐Ÿ™‚

Yi joined Chloe and Gladys in the next category. That meant another 800M for Daddy.

Yi gets to climb higher for a better view (thanks to Phoebe for the photo)

Did you know that cheerleaders (in this case, HelloStrangers) will be cheering your kids. It helps when Daddy is also struggling to keep pace too keke ๐Ÿ™‚

Finally, Xin participates in toddler’s category (they are not the smallest, there is even a Stroller category !!)

Daddy wonder whether Xin can run or not? She covered a whole 200m (out of 800m), before asking for and Mummy “hug hug”!ย  Maybe 200M is considered impressive for her small legs :p

Running around the Padang provide good eye-candy for the kids. Maybe, it can help them to run faster. We enjoyed ourselves throughly, and the kids get to catchup with their buddies again.

That evening, everyone gets to show off their achievements and medals.

We would like to thanks Marina Bay for inviting us to the run ๐Ÿ™‚
