Drawing Inspiration - Wednesday the 26th of January, 2011

Having received rave reviews of my last non-photo (drawn) run post (and by "rave", I mean a single person said it was "kinda neat"), and having also forgotten to bring any method to carry my camera (aside from my hands), I decided to run without my digital third eye, and just do a couple of (dodgy) sketches of my run afterwards.

I set out on a quick 8km road run with fellow HKUST staff, and frequent running partner, Willie along the same course we've ran 3 times over the past 3 weeks. Good for working on speed, there's no concerns over foot placement and the paved hills make you work for it, but allow you to push the pace a little.

The sun was hot and bright and my capped shadow always seemed to be one step ahead of me

Willie though, was always a few more paces ahead of my shadow, and did awesome on the hills, pushing hard all the way!

I've decided that while I don't enjoy pushing hard and fast and roads as much as cruising along trails, I do enjoy doing well in races, and sometimes hard work may be required!

Running is like mouthwash... if you can feel the burn, it's working!!!
