2011 is starting out as a busy year. Both Erin and I have been busy at work even going in during the past few weekends. That didn't stop us from seeing more of Kaohsiung last weekend as we took the subway to the harbor and walked up to see the former British Consulate Residence. The residence has a nice colonial style and we were able to enjoy some lunch while overlooking the harbor. It was a nice break after working so much.
On Sunday we were up very early to make it to the race which started at 6am. Though we just wanted to walk and enjoy the sights it was clear that everyone else was there to run and compete. The energy in the air (and the supposed 90 minute time limit for the 10K) prompted us to do some jogging to finish the course in just over an hour and a half.
After getting cleaned up and getting some breakfast we made a brief trip to the Literature Museum before getting on a train back to Kaohsiung. While we had our doubts Saturday night about getting up so early to participate I'm glad we did. Now back in Kaohsiung our legs are sore and I'm sure we'll feel it tomorrow. Still, if we keep to Erin's New Year's Resolution of 10,000 steps for four days each week we may just be ready for another one in March. Hopefully one that starts a little bit later so we can get some rest!
