    It's been cold

    and snowy here the past couple weekends. I never made it into the city for the group runs on Saturday. I did make it out by myself on the Sunday for 5 miles. It was cold, but I was dressed right and never got cold.

    Today there was snow in the air. The light, big, fluffy flakes that just float down like feathers. It was so nice to run with that. It lifted my spirits. Felt good out today too. That is always good.

    Last Thursday

    I got out for a short run before the deep freeze set in. Glad I got out as the temps, snow, and wind have made the past few days much too dangerous to go out.

    The coming days show warmer temps, so I'm looking forward to next week.

    Still keeping up with running. 3-4 days a week. 25-45 minutes. Depends on the day of the week. If it's weekday, I run shorter than the weekend.

    I am using the Nike running App to keep track with my run. It's petty helpful. I should have used it sooner.

    Saturday morning :

    After taking a break from the 10k run on Wednesday, I got back to running this morning. Didn't plan to have a long run but managed to run for 1 hour.

    Wednesday morning, I ran my usual 30 minutes in my village. And then during the day, I joined the fund-raising run with my sister. It was a 10k run from one check point to the next and took us 1 hour 50 minutes.

    The fund-raising run was organized by a Thai famous singer and a runner named Toon. His first run was 400 kilometers and it was a huge success. He ran to raise fund and donated the money to one of the hospitals in his hometown. But this time he aims to do something bigger; he wants to run from South to North, passing 22 provinces and aims to raise 700 million baht and donate the money to 11 hospitals nationwide.

    It was the 8th day yesterday when we joined him. We started at 11 am and finished nearly at 1 pm. We walked and ran as there were so many donors along the road waiting for him. He had to stop to receive the money and other means of donation. Quite a number of runners ran after him yesterday. Some started at the check point, some joined in along the road.

    Now, it is the 9th day and he has run 335.06 kilometers, passing 3 provinces and entering the 4th at the end of the day, with the amount of donation at 131,293,170 baht. And along the way, while taking a rest at a check point he would go to a school in the area to give scholarship to students. The money for the scholarship is out of his own pocket.

    Each day he starts around 4 am and finishes around 8 pm, running 50 kilometers daily. So there are 5 stops each day. This run is planned to end on December 25th.

    I am so glad that I had the chance to join the event. It's a great experience to participate in something huge and meaningful for the benefits of others.

    It stopped raining this morning and looking out from my window, I told myself I must go out as it was densely foggy outside. I decided to take my phone with me so I can take some photos.

    I ran the same distance as yesterday so the time was approximately 30 minutes.

    24 mins yesterday and 27 today. I was back to running yesterday since coming back from holiday. I've planned to run regularly again but don't want to run too long. So far so good!
