Certainly feels like I’m living in one. The weeks have flown by and in the blink of an eye we’re a third of the way into the year. Wasn’t it just yesterday when we were counting down to 2016?!

The past weeks have mainly been occupied by new developments at work (goodbye paywall!), as well as two long weekends (Easter and Ching Ming), two races, many days of a nasty cold and cough (both little M and I) and lots of wonderful precious family time.

The races – the AVOHK Reservoir Series race 3/3 Tai Tam 11k, and the HKDRC Mt Butler Heritage Race 15k. Both courses started at the same place and had similar routes for the first 3-4k (aka boring). But since the start line was just a short trot from home, I thought, what the heck, let’s just give the legs some fast paced practice. It turns out I won my age-group in both races, and was 3rd woman overall in the AVOHK race and 2nd woman overall in the HKDRC race (no thanks to the nasty cold and coughing my lungs out). Some cash and swag at the HKDRC race was a nice bonus, though if I wasn’t sick I reckon I could have had a real shot at the overall woman’s title and the HK$1,000 bonus.

I wish time would slow down – especially with how quickly little M is growing up – though there’s also much to look forward to in the next couple of months with a few trips planned.
