Shot of me coming up Violet Hill on last nights LBC/2XU Stairmaster series over The Twins and back, with downtown Hong Kong sparking in the distance.

Reached the checkpoint in 8th, but finished 22nd after a bit of a blow up. Disappointing result, but fantastic race.

"Fear is what makes you come alive, the lure of the unknown — can I do this? — that’s where the growth comes from, the pain. I don’t remember the running effortlessly; I remember the hard times; adversity breathes transformation." - Scott Jurek

Top 3 Scenic Trails

If you’ve ever done ‘The Twins’ you’ll know there’s no easy up - it’s stairs, and a thousand of them, either way. This shot was taken about halfway up, looking back down towards the end of the stairs coming down from Violet Hill. One of my favourite weekend runs.

Tai Long Wan is just a stunner. The run from the end of High Island Reservoir, down to Long Ke Wan, up and over the hill to see this in front of you is a breath taker. So is the run itself.

The trails around Sai Kung generally are fantastic - one moment you look around and all you can see are trails. Hills and trails. No buildings, no people, just you and a trail. That’s what it’s all about.
