Running

Kinvara

I like to run. I am certainly not fast, but I really enjoy running outside. Usually I run three times a week – two short runs and one longer run. The length of my longer run varies depending on my goals and events coming up. When we left Australia in January 2014, I packed a brand new pair of Saucony Kinvara 2’s in the picture above. They are out of production now and the new version doesn’t fit me as well, so I will have to look for a different shoe in 2015. The Kinvara 2’s have a minimal drop that I like, so I might look into zero drop next time.

Running in Thailand

This run/walk was 11km up Doi Suthep, a mountain with a temple on top and incredible views over Chiang Mai. I ran about half of the distance in the less steep sections. There are always plenty of cyclists on this road, but I’ve only seen one or two other runners.
