Weather in Hong Kong Today
Wasn’t easy but wasn’t as tough as KOTH Lantau. Probably because the weather was great. Weatherman, for a change, turned out right in his prediction of relatively cool weather in Hong Kong today. A good relief from the sweltering heat. It was about 18 degrees today compared to 27 yesterday!
Started the race at 0900 HKT and had to climb up Cloudy hill and Pat Sin Leng before heading down the most slippery path I have seen in Hong Kong. Fellow competitors were much crazier than me and some of them seemed to be leapfrogging on this trail. They were literally heading down a slippery slope and I heard at least one of them shouting “this is so much fun”. This guy was like a kid in a candy store and loving every moment of this monkey business! I’ll admit, I was having some fun too but after my butt hit the ground over 3 times, I was wishing it would end soon!
Maintained about 12Km/h avg on the flats and didn’t stop anywhere. Goal was to be top 15 in my category but I couldn’t believe the result – came 8th overall and 7th in my category. 36Kms completed in 4 hrs 36 minutes. Good way to finish off the series.
