Daan Park Ultra – 7/28/2012 (45k in 4:45)

Longest run ever! First 30k at 6:12/k and slowed down a little after that. Next 10k about 6:40 and last 5k in 32 min.

My fuel was 5 litres of water and 10 small bananas. Now for a 24 ounce steak!

14th Half: Yangmingshan 21k Race – 7/15/2012 (1:40)

This was a great run up to Zhuzhi Hu (Zhuzhi Shan) in Yangmingshan National Park. I improved my time by about 5 minutes on last year and I’ll hopefully be back in 2013. My time was good enough for 41st overall and 19th in my age group – my age group had over 1000 of around 2500 runners!

Another cross-country race that was all on tarmac! It was a tough, yet beautiful run though and my 28th place got of a NT3000 Columbia voucher!

12th Half: Sanchong Half Marathon – 4/15/2012 (1:28)

I ran the Sanchong Half this morning. Good conditions and a nice race too. My time was about 30 seconds off my PR so not too bad but I would have liked to be faster (of course!)..

New Balance “Run Faster Taiwan” 13k – 4/8/2012

This race was poorly organised. The 13k race started 5 minutes after the longer race (22k) which means we had to fight our way through the 22k pack for the first 5k on a riverside path that was less than 3m wide.

Also, after finishing at around 8am, I only received my prize and trophy 3 hours afterwards!
