Adventures in China

I keep meaning to write about my time in China and Thailand but then things get busy and the time I carve out to write becomes me just sitting on my couch. So here is what you need to know about my trip: China and Thailand are beautiful. I was able to go on a couple of runs in Beijing (where is ridiculously polluted) and Wuhan (where it's also polluted). Thailand was 90 degrees and humid always so sadly no running for me but I am sure I sweat out the donuts I managed to eat. Best part about the trip?

a) the monkeys and cats I saw everywhere

b) ok but really, in Wuhan I went for a three mile run through a park along the Yellow river. I came across a workout park but didn't have time to play.

At night I brought my mom back so she could see it and we used some of the equipment. There was a man, a little taller than me and very ripped, doing decline push ups on a tree and I said I can do that. So I did a few and did some plyos. He then hit his knee on a tree and told me to do the same and I said are you insane that hurts. And then I walked away and did a few pull ups. When I finished the pull ups I heard a man shout and for some reason knew it was to me. My new friend had jumped in the tree and was doing pull ups in then. I clapped, he hopped down and we bowed to each other. #fitfam is everywhere.
