The Singapore Sweat

Sure, the locals have spent a lifetime getting acclimated to the environment here, but I’ve lived in my share of hot and humid locales, too – Chattanooga and swampy Washington, DC chief among them. But I must admit, Singapore is something else. Despite the weather, it is an incredibly active and fit nation, with miles and miles of bike/running paths, neighborhood parks, and outdoor fitness stations dotting the city.  We try to get our fair share of exercise too – I’ve always loved running – but it is quite humbling (if not slightly embarrassing) to be beet-red, huffing and puffing through Sembawang Park while a middle-aged couple goes running in the opposite direction, dry and cool.
