First Road Race in Seoul

I have been wanting to run a road race in Seoul but never seem to know when they are and when I do figure out, cannot make it through the complicated and confusing Korean websites to register.

Today, was National Foundation Day so Nicholas had the day off. A friend of ours told Nicholas he was going to be doing a 10k this morning near our house and suggested we do it as well. Although we both are completely out of shape we were so excited to do a race here. We could not do race day registration, but they did allow us to take some packages of runners who did not show up by the cut-off point. So today, Nicholas ran as Ryan and I ran as Charles :)

It was most things we imagined: congested with runners, colorful and well organized. There were 4 races going on, nearly simultaneously: full marathon, half, 10k and 5k- 5 minutes separating each. The organizers did a great job and we finished better than expected. We even received finisher medals, not bad for an idle Wednesday !
