We’re training for the Taipei International Marathon! (Wish I could go back and show my high school track coach that I can in fact run more than two miles!) As part of the training process, we completed our first half-marathon today in Beitou. Although a great location for its hot springs, I’m not sure I would recommend Beitou to fellow runners. The mountain climbing and sulfur smell got a bit old after about, you know, five minutes.
