A big birthday shout out to my fellow world runner, Tony Mangan, who is currently walking around the world. Tony has just arrived back in China to take up where he left off prior to a quick trip home to Ireland. Enjoy the day, Tony.

As for me, well, I did a 25 km run yesterday, my longest in quite some time. Other than heavy thighs, I’ve pulled up well. I might possibly try another Centennial Park time trial early next week.

The video below was filmed on this day back in 2012, as I was running through the San Luis Valley in Colorado, which is, funnily enough, Tony Mangan’s favourite US state. The valley floor is at 8,000 feet elevation. You can hear me breathing a little heavier as I ran along the road at this altitude. The photos are from the same region.
