Running a little behind on posts, so expect mostly photos for the next couple!
On Wednesday I took a half-day annual leave in the afternoon so I could go for a run in the mountains. Ex-Hong Kong resident and running/climbing friend Chris Fornelli was visiting Hong Kong last week, so we decided to take on a challenging section of trail, to get him out of the city for a bit.
Chris, already climbed ~350m is still only halfway to the 702m peak of Ma On Shan
An awesome valley that sharply drops off

Ignore the max height on the profile, we reached 702m. My GPS (Phone) has been playing up lately.
Overall quite a tough run, and about 15km in I was wishing that I'd had lunch before setting out, but in the end it was great to spend an afternoon on the trails with a friend.
See you on the trails!
