fly with the wind without wings

A trip to Bangkok would not be complete without a run in Lumpini Park, or a visit with my favourite Botero-esque tribute to womanhood.

This morning’s run reminded me of why I run.

Loving Husband and I ran amongst hardcore runners, walkers, strollers and taichi practitioners, with a smile on our faces for the duration of our outing. The vibe was upbeat and contagious. A balm for our spirits before we brave the Bangkok traffic in search of food, shopping & museums.

  1. I LOVE that statue. That’s pretty well how I feel when I run 😉
    Seriously, I really do miss running. With any luck and the help of some great professionals I will resolve my feet issues and be able to run again.
