Michaelian Run - A Gathering Of Strength

Gathering of  Strength - that's Michaelian Spirit 
The Michaelian Run was successfully held, much to the amazement of so many students who turned up just to participate. All wanted to be part of an event which holds a great tradition as far as St Michael's is concerned. The cross country route that Michaelians took 50 years ago is still the same one current Michaelians take today! From the school entrance we took the left turn and ran towards Brewster Road. We turned left again after the bridge and everyone could notice Chinese temples along the river bank.

Tired but not giving up
Not sure whether the dogs that guard a wooden bungalow were around that day but they helped to make our paces faster. It took an amateur as least 30 to 40 minutes to complete the race but it was the classmates and schoolmates who made the event an occasion to cherish. The reason the event is held beginning of the year hits home a message that we are ready to perform throughout the year. It makes us more focussed and offers  us the energy to inspire one another. We could be running, walking or strolling that day but the Run itself had left an indelible mark in all of us.
Thanks my buddy James Gough for the shot of the bridge.
Bravo boys. Way to go...
Onward Michaelians! Valiant and True.
