Anyhow, 10k was way harder than i was expecting, (longer than i thouht, wanted to puke etc, etc) though i did manage to get my 45 minute goal. Yoyo was somehow about 10 min faster solo than when she ran w/ me. Go figure. Go Yoyo!
We ran the 1st race together, which was mellow and fun. Then the next race, she was like, "Don't worry about me. You just run ahead." and I was like, "well, yeah, that's what I was planning to do, ha."
But the exciting news is that Yoyo came out for both of them!
Well, gettin' a bit more running in these days. Two wks ago was the Beijing Long Distance Running Festival, which was a bit of a ramshackle 10km race (check out my story Sweat, Sales Pitches and Scandal at http://williamwangwrites.tumblr.com/post/48030569477/sweat-sales-pitches-and-scandal-at-the-beijing-running)and then the following wkend was another 10k race, out in the suburbs, weird course starting at a superduper posh international school, which progressed through some of the shittiest, stinkiest, poorest hutongs seen in Beijing proper.
