After that I pretty much blogged for the rest … More 6/13/18: Locked Out Of My Hostel

We got our bags together and went downstairs to the lobby to wait for our van to take us to our next destination: Koh Lanta, Thailand.

This morning I went for a 4 mile run: tempo. It sucked! It was so hot, but it also felt nice by the end… that’s always how tempo runs go, isn’t it? After breakfast I went to look for a cafe to work in. It took me forever to find somewhere, and I ended up … More 1/23/18: Bye Bangkok/Hello Myanmar
