First week back in Bangkok. Many fond memories of Korea. Hopefully I’ll get to see my friends again in the near future.
So we are about half way through the Summer Institute. We will be leaving Cheongju this Sunday to go on a tour. So I have to pack stuff and will check out tomorrow. We will return to this hotel after a week.
Two days ago I ran with Sergey, Kim, Andriy, and Yury from the hotel to the Sangdangsansoeng fortress. It was the longest run I have had in the last 2 years. The distance was probably about 7-8 km. So roundtrip is ~15 km. The toughest part wasn’t the distance; it’s the slopes. There were some crazy inclines on the way up.
The guys were amazingly strong. I had to do lots of walking. The experience makes me realize that I don’t like gravity that much. Earth is too heavy. The pain was incredible.
The weather wasn’t quite as nice as our first try on Sunday. It was too humid and warm. Anyhow, I felt wonderful after the run.
