Ele[hant Mountain ezFun Trail Race

s600_cfe9b472-9c6c-4f8d-8a25-82410aa464b3.

This was a really tough race on the trails of Elephant Mountain in Taipei. It was a combination of some roads, lots of old worn stone steps and some steep and overgrown trails.

I was leading for about the first 3k and managed 2nd overall. This race was organised by ezfun and I’ll definitely do one of their races again.

Danshui Cherry Blossoms Race (2/24/2013)

s600_0eb19a74-ca8c-4334-b6e8-cc4a58d4467fDon’t remember the time.. pace was right around 4m/k – a bit slow due to the wind and hilly course. 10th overall and 3rd in my AG.

17th Half: Yangmingshan Trail Race (30/12/2012 – 1:38)

DSC_7518This race was basically one big hill – 10k up and10 down – which resulted in a huge negative split. It was only a small field of about 300 runners and I managed 13th overall and 2nd in my age group.

Happy new year!

5th Full: Mongia Marathon (2/12/2012 – 3:25)

It was raining the whole time, often fairly heavily. I was a bit fast over the first 3k and after that settled nicely into my race pace. It soon became clear though that it wasn’t going to be my day.

So a bit of a disappointing way to end the season, especially considering that after 5 marathons, my first was still the fastest. The highlight of the morning.. a hot shower at the finish and free draft beer!

16th Half: Maokong Half (28/10/2012)

IMG_0749This is a tough yet beautiful race through the hills of Maokong, past tea plantations, the cable car, and with great views of 101 and the city.

I forgot to stop my watch so don’t know my exact time but I managed 16th overall from a strong field of a few thousand runners.
