1 Day at the Great Wall
Term 2 Kick-off in Shanghai
1 Day off
This week started off with a run with Jilane and Meagan in DC and hopping on a plane to Beijing soon after that.
I landed in Beijing on Tuesday, feeling excited to be on a continent I had never been to. I got in several runs with Nick in the pollution-laced air and even ran a light minuters workout on Saturday in Shanghai along the Bund. All in all, I'm really happy to be here and am so excited to get in some more runs!

In the end, this residency helped me realize that I can't use these residencies as an excuse to just totally ignore running. I was hoping to get 60 miles in during this stay, but didn't reach that because I missed my alarm. I think that going forward, if I buckle down, I will definitely be able to still hit a good mileage and continue to achieve my running goals without sacrificing my performance at Duke.
