Coming Home - Tuesday the 26th of October, 2010

Overcast skies, cool temps, my favourite Asics and a dirt trail beneath my feet. I honestly couldn't help thinking: this is where I belong.

An awesome run out on the trails today, down to Po Lam and back up via the road. I worked hard but was rewarded with a good time. It's a pity the trail sections are so short, I really felt a sense of elation while running them. Now I just need to find a place where I can run single-track trails for 2hrs+.

Crossing a saddle, the trail moves onto the other side of the spur. I have a photo (below) from that little stretch of road just left of the centre

An illegal construction in the Jungle. With all the chairs facing out like that, it looks like the perfect place to hold a Jungle Court!

Looking back while running up the curved road towards the slope I was running on 20 minutes previously (see the panorama above).

A great run and a course PB.

See you on the slopes!
