One fun run
One of my highlights of our UK visit will undoubtedly be my first ever run alongside others. Whilst I go running most weeks in China, it's always by myself. With the rise of free "Park Runs" in the UK, I was determined to join in one whilst here. It was a 5km run, within my range, and so yesterday I set off with about 140 others. In Kunming I can run 5km, at altitude, in about 40 mins. At sea level and with the encouragement of others around me, I hoped to complete it in 30-35mins. To my surprise and delight, I was eventually timed in 27 minutes, coming 62nd. I'm in grey above, running next to Josh (who had to pull out halfway with a sore knee). Great fun!
