So these are my running shoes. I bought them in Japan last year and so far they have been running in Japan, USA, Germany, England and Costa Rica.
They are doing pretty well considering.
The road I run on here starts with a long decline followed by a long incline and then kind of levels out a little as it winds through all the coffee plantations around here. If I kept going all the way I would get to the UPeace campus.
It is peak rainy season right now, and I underestimated the rain here once. I won't be doing that again... It was kind of fun to run in a torrential tropical storm but I was absolutely soaked when I made it home.
The rain was warmer than the shower I had afterwards, and my shoes got a much needed wash.
I never understood the point of writing a blog, but Scott inspired me.
Plus I am a lazy person so this is a good way of staying in touch with people without writing loads of emails. So if you get an email from me, count yourself lucky...
So I am going to try to stick things on here that I like, that I do, that I see...
For example today I went for a run along the road to UPeace, halfway up one of the hills there was some kind of dead animal on the side and about 15 of these buzzard/vulture type birds that hang around here. Normally you only see them circling round in big spiral gangs but these ones had found something good to eat. I had to clap loudly to get them out of the road and even then they were pretty reluctant to leave the food behind.
