The excitement of having elephants in town is tempered by rumors of a lion. Let me explain.
You’ll recall when the elephants arrived. At that time, there had been a lot of rain, and some flooding, and I speculated that these elephants had been moved to avoid floods.
I struggled with a good title for this post. At first I was thinking of something along the lines of “it’s not how you start, but how you finish.”
Running out of Singha Park Chiang Rai just after sunrise.
If you’re like me, this is the time of year when you’ve got more bananas and passion fruit than you know what to do with.
I’ve been mixing 500 mL boxes of coconut milk with about 75 cm3 of chia seeds to make a pudding.
I knew my preparations for the recent Krabi International Trail race were a little unconventional. But I had some hope that they would be effective.
Naturally, when running at latitudes within 10° of the equator at elevations below 2,000 m, it is going to be hot.
I took a long train ride across 6 degrees of latitude. Bangkok is about 13 degrees north, so I’ll call this a narrow road to the slightly north.
When I got to Bangkok, I went straight to the snack aisle.
On the Fourth of July weekend, I might normally have a barbeque. Perhaps some potato chips too. This year I decided to mix up the menu a bit, so I skipped the potato chips and went for snacks with a higher protein content.
I’ve been cutting back on the potato chips recently, and doing a bit of running. Last weekend I was up early on Sunday to join a large crowd in Surat Thani province for a 30 km run through the beautiful Khao Sok National Park.
