Living in this hectic city of Hong Kong has made me realize the importance of work-life balance. That's how I started the habit of hiking two years ago. Spending time in nature indeed brings me tranquility and peace. Gradually I wanted to pursue something more challenging and adventurous which can improve my stamina and develop my persistence.
The pandemic has stopped many of us from travelling and racing. However, it has actually motivated me to try out new things and accomplish goals that I have never thought about achieving - Spartan Trifecta, a few half-marathon virtual races, 56k-overnight hikes etc.
As a Spartan and trail-running newbie, I find these new hobbies rewarding although the training process might be painful. I also enjoy exploring hidden places and trails in Hong Kong. I appreciate my Spartan friends who have made all the training sessions and virtual races so worth remembering.Stay motivated and stay healthy! Aroooo!
