Running and Boot Camp

Yes, I’ve become a bit of a fitness freak! The Bee Active bootcamp and runners in Hanoi have gotten to me and I’ve been training for almost three years now in Hanoi. I love running around the lakes, particularly West Lake which can vary from anywhere between a 10k to 15k run. A group of us have been encouraging and supporting each other with these runs on Sunday mornings.

Just before our winter holiday break a group of us travelled to Siem Reap for the weekend to participate in the Angkor Wat half marathon last Dec 2nd. A fantastic event for a great cause. We all achieved great results and returned to Hanoi for another week of teaching and another round of running at the Song Hong half marathon on the following weekend!

Amazing efforts from everyone who ran!

I love our supportive community here in Hanoi. I couldn’t feel more proud as I completed my second half, running across the finish line exhausted yet hearing only words of encouragement from fellow teachers, administrators, colleagues, friends and my students!
