I Joined in the Beijing Nike Lunar Run 10KM in Olympic Forest Park last Saturday, Nov 11th, 2011, although running is not my strong points. Hosted by Nike, this 10-kilometer run aims to promote the concept of running in the evenings. Due to the weather, it was held in Beijing in the day time.
With three stops in China – the other two being Shanghai and Guangzhou. Everyone who finished the 10-kilometer running within 2 hours will get a medal, and the first three will get other praise.
We did warm up exercises around 9:40 a.m. Several famous guys in entertainment world also came. The atmosphere was so excited that we didn’t feel cold any more.
The race began at 10 o’clock in the morning. More than 4,000 runners rushed out in the running track at the same time. Long- distance race is won by runner with the greatest endurance. Come on! Running!!
We ran very fast for the first 3 kilometers, but it was very hard to keep the same speed on the half way. Sometimes we even walked instead of running. We also met the smallest “runner” on the halfway. He is only two years old.
At around 11:30, we finally finished the 10 kilometers running and got the medal. Although I didn’t get any place in the competition, I still won.
Nike Lunar Run 10KM aims to make us interested in sports and running. In order to maintain physical well being, we should get sufficient exercise every day. Let’s keep running after the competition!
