The best news is the new running track, we will move there starting on our next run session and experiment for a while. If it works for us, we will maintain it in the future
The next month will be very busy with events every weekend. This weekend we have our Khao Yai outing as part of the cycling class, then the Tridash in a new course, followed by laguna Phuket and finally our end year social. Hope to see you there for a chat.
