nictinworth Staring down into the void from the top of High West on Hong Kong island. The clouds and fog were a welcome relief from the past few days of blazing hot sun.

nictinworth I like looking through old photos from many seasons ago and remembering how very little I knew about myself and my running back then! Not that I'm a guru now by any stretch of the imagination, and I still make classic schoolboy errors in races (especially with pacing), but I at least feel like I've come a long way in understanding what works for me and what doesn't, and photos like this always remind me why I do it - because it makes me smile. ---------------------------------------------------

nictinworth Lovely day for a stroll around the back streets of Sai Ying Pun, an opportunity to reconnect with the original tenants of the area and their cultural icons. #hongkong #thisishongkong #temples #asia 4d

nictinworth The village of Shek O in the southern district of #hongkong has a rarely used gem to offer. Whilst the hoards hog the beach, these small trails around the headland are virtually deserted and offer excellent snorkelling and rock climbing opportunities. #thisishongkong #asia #summer #outdoors 7d

nictinworth I give thanks to the water and weather lords of #hongkong for their gifts today and over the past week. Incredibly clear and hot, but makes the rock pools that much more amazing!

nictinworth How to win customer loyalty - send them stuff they haven't ordered that you know they love. Goes without saying that I just opened up their website to order some more. Thanks @gonerunning_hk! #gonerunning #hongkong 4w

nictinworth "You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement." — Steve Prefontaine. ----------------------------------------------------------
The legend lives on, 40 years to the day after he died. What a legacy. I've always been drawn to the rebels - the ones who fought against the status quo and did things their own way. Many people wanted Pre to conserve, kick, then cruise across the finish line, but he wanted to come in on empty. Race with fire, arrive on fumes. He gave his best every time, all the time and didn't listen to his limits or the people who said he couldn't run the way he wanted to.
