Another race in Seoul...I am back!

This morning, May 1st, Mike and I ran our sixth or seventh race here in Seoul with our trusty Seoul Flyers.

It was my first back since the Seoul Marathon in late March. Still nursing a bit of a bad knee, so just a 5K for me and 10K for Mike.

Mike had a PR for his 10K (not inlcuding when he was 17 Years old, but I don't think that counts anymore). He now officially has a faster 10K time than me!


NANTA is a show here in Seoul that combines the traditional Korean drums with some humor and cooking. Hard to explain. Some sites call it the Eastern version of the Blue Man Group...very high energy, crowd-involvement required show.

At any point, there is drumming, wacky Korean humor, food flying, knives thrown, plates thrown, men kissing and even some taekwondo and numchucks (made of wisks!). If you are in Seoul, it is worth seeing this show.

Mike and I went to see it last night and I wanted to share a clip of it with you here. There is so much in this show, that we couldn't show you all of it, but the Korean drums are my favorite, so here is a clip from youtube.

Spring has Sprung here in Seoul!

I was walking Maddy the other day and was overwhelmed by the fragrance of lilac. It was like I was standing in a Bath n Body Works at home :-) I think it is sad that is where my mind goes when I think of lilacs, although BNBW marketing company would be so happy.

When I looked around, I realized that I was surrounded by beautiful flowers everywhere.

Thought I would share some of the those with you. If you look close, you can see Maddy in one of the pictures.
