London

with one comment

Good time with family Nan, Aim, George, and friend Marty.

On Sunday, we went to watch London Marathon near the finish line. Saw Keitany and Kipsang won their races comfortably in two of the fastest times in history. On Monday, I had a nice 12 km run in Hyde Park with Marty. It was my longest run in a couple months, but I felt great because of the cool weather. Wednesday, raced 5 km in a casual charity race. Had fun while earning a self-timed personal best (21:00). Overall, I haven’t run much while here, but lots of walking everyday.

Loving the city. Great food (have probably gained some weight) and transportation (love not having to drive). Weather, though a bit rainy, is nice and cool. With right clothing, it’s pleasant. Going back tomorrow to face Bangkok 40 C temp. Ahh…
