runwicked Sweet elderly couple enjoying lunch along the Cheonggyecheon. A daily ritual perhaps, a moment amidst nature in the city, enjoying the cooler air and the sound of the stream. Or maybe they're both married and having a midday tryst. Who knows. #seoul #cheonggyecheon #lovers 6d

runwicked Turned out our hotel was on one of the more popular pojangmacha streets in Jogno. No matter what night it was, the curbside eateries lined the street, packed with people socializing, drinking soju and eating Korean street food into the late hours. To me, food is the ultimate expression of a culture and it's always a beautiful thing seeing people celebrate it. 6d

runwicked I had fun watching this older man cross the Cheonggyecheon. He was relatively frail and the younger man was helping him as he stepped onto the first stone. But as soon as he took that first step, he quickly and somewhat playfully made his way across. For decades this river was an elevated freeway going through the heart of the city, but in 2003, it was removed and the river was restored. It's proof that great things happen when you let nature happen in the heart of a city. Great things, like an old man finding an extra spring in his step as he playfully crosses the river. #seoul #cheonggyecheon 1w

runwicked There's a coffee shop seemingly every 10 feet in Seoul. This one, my favorite so far. If you're following on snapchat (@colincooley) you got a bit of a tour. It's hidden along an alley and has a bunch of cool spots to hang out, both inside and out. 1w

runwicked Exploring the alleys of Bukchon Hanok Village. Street after street of traditional Korean homes, many that have been transformed into tea houses, restaurants, and design houses. 1w

runwicked Home for the next couple days in Seoul. Brand new boutique hotel with Brooklyn NYC vibe located on the edge of Insadong. Solid base for exploring the city. Subway stop right out front and historical and cultural attractions all within walking distance. 1w

runwicked Good times yesterday running, hiking and scrambling for 37 miles with @larunr at Ultra Trail Korea 59k. 13,000' of up and that gain was on a bunch of barely there trails that just went straight up the mountain. Mad respect for the ultra community here. Awesome group of people, made for a fun day suffering in the mountains with them. #utk59 1w

runwicked I've been in Seoul less than 24 hours and I'm on my 16th meal I think. You really can't go wrong here. In this pic, we're feasting on some budaejjigae ("army base stew") in Myeongdong. No doubt my dad ate some of this when he was here during the Korean War. Hot dogs, spam, noodles and who knows what in a spicy soup. If you saw the Bourdain ep where he was hanging with the crazy army guy with the web show, this is what they were eating. More of my running and food adventures here on snapchat: @colincooley #seoul #food 2w

runwicked 13 hour flight. 16 hour time change. Greasy fried dumplings and spicy noodles upon arrival. Best way to shake it off is an early morning run exploring the city. #seoul #run #running #namsantower #seoultower 2w
