I did my first run since Christmas today. I fell in love again with my shoes. I think I pushed myself after my son was born. I really felt a sense of achievement completing 10K when he was 18 weeks old but then my time also got restricted and it dropped down my list of priorities. Then I realised how much I walk everyday. Just running errands and the school drop-off/pickup. Today is the most beautiful sunshine- so I went for a run. I loved it- I relaxed into it and explored my surroundings. I found things I had no idea were there- like an amazing bike track and bmx skateboard park perfect to take Eva too with her bike. Just down the road! The view near me is stunning- the water, boats, bridge (Ting Kao in one direction and Stonecutters in the other) and the mountains (Tai Mo Shan) behind Tsuen Wan and on Hong Kong Island are inspiring.
I recently started the Facebook group runclubhk and it has all levels of runners on there and I have been inspired and motivated to get out there. But today is not just about running.
