Siam Reap 13.1

Sunday, 14 Dec 2008 | Views [1141]

I had a day to rest before the half marathon, but my legs were still sore from my cycling when the starting gun was fired. I recited my mantra “pain is temporary, pride is forever” and ran like the wind (on a slightly breezy day). My training was screwed ... Read more >
