Don’t be afraid to change up the pace

Recently I took part in a different sort of event – similar idea of keeping moving for a long time. But only running. And not on the even road surface but off road on trails and over mountains.

(Photo Credit: Adam Roberts, Mr. Orangedog Photography) As 2015 drew to a close, everyone here in Thailand was very excited: as Christmas is non-existent, the New Years’ parties take the front seat. I witnessed 2016 coming in on the local beach, watching a sea of lanterns being set off along the the 5km beach, and the biggest and best hotels competing to set off the biggest … Read More The (somewhat brief) nature of resolutions
