The picture above show me at the start of last years event.

Last year I came in 2nd in my age category in 50 and up and 14th ll over. This year I'm looking for another top 3 finish in my age category.

The race routes for this year.

Am looking forward to this years event. Although I will already be in training for the Koh Samui marathon, come 15th September. I will be in my fourth week of training but it will fit in!
Hope to see you there, and if you see me, say hi!

Please do 'like' my Koh Samui blog Facebook page and enjoy the beaches around the island or in front of your hotel or resort and get some well deserved rest and a break. 

If you're done resting or need something else to do, there's plenty of things on offer on and around Koh Samui, you can go snorkeling or diving or take a dive course. 

You can also enjoy some of the trips I recommend, like a half day gourmet lunch and snorkeling trip at the Southern part of Koh Samui or a photography trip where you get to see the most photo genetic spots on the island or go for a drinks tasting tour if you like a tipple or two. 

You may also opt for a very special dinner experience at The Thai Experience. Behind closed doors, reservation only and a very enjoyable and well worthwhile way of spending an evening on Samui. Authentic Thai food and a great atmosphere. Can highly recommend this experience. 

Contact me for more detailed information on any of the options mentioned.
