I wasn’t able to take an early flight out of Taipei so had to spend my weekend here and that includes my weekend running chores. So I decided to run in Taipei Botanical Garden after 20 minutes walk to MRT, 3 stops later and another 15 minutes walk was finally out running. 

It was a cool experience or rather I should say cold being the weather at the time. It was a nice running around the garden with the trees, the rare plants, the squirrels, the lanscapes, the lake and the ever changing terrains. I always like to spend time here being such a serene place. 

It wasn’t my best time but considering the odds of the cold weather, I’m just glad I’m still moving after the 5 kilometer run. Of course, the downside could have me being added as a frozen monument in the park. Oh well, that didn’t happen so I’d take it as a very nice scenic run.

    I randomly clicked on your travel page and opened this… I wonder what was the temperature when you ran. It must have been hard, didn’t you get numb that time?

    So, you found your writing through the old pages and this running at Taipei Botanical Garden.

    It’s good experience to be able to still do your regular exercise routine despite the weather. It’s a common scenario in New York to see New Yorkers run and jog even when it’s snowing. I see them doing their usual thing at -4 degrees Celsius. How? Must be sheer determination and mind over matter. 🙂
