Not Bustin a Gut

I did the Bangkok marathon last Sunday. Beautiful location for the start and finish opposite the Grand Palace. But the route was mostly on top of a flyover in the dark, heading out of the city for about 16 kilometers, then turning through a gap in the central reservation concrete for the run back. A bit mind-numbing after a 2am start. Also, it was a bit bizarre to be given your finisher’s medal in your race pack along with your bib the day before. Bangkok was great.

So, now it is time to fix the hernia (surgery required) and the hip. They both hurt.

Next marathon will be on home soil – the Baxter’s Loch Ness Marathon in September. I have always wanted to run this one.
