Saturday Hike - "Well begun is half done"

As part of my new year resolution, I determined to run more, hike more and just live a healthier life in general. "More" is a bit blurry, so let's just say I need to run at least 30 min every week.
 
"Well begun is half done," as they always say. I had a 3.5 km run last week and went hiking on Saturday.
 
Many still see Hong Kong as the cosmopolitan city that only has concrete jungles and skyscrapers so It might strike you as odd that plenty of expats decided to live here longer due to the convenience to dive in nature. As an example, we started the hike from Repulse Bay Beach which is only 20-30 min bus ride away from Central.
 
As we walked the route of the Repulse Bay SPRINT trail running race, if you are interested in the hiking trail details, please see the description at the end of the blog.

It really didn't take us much time get here from the city center - Central

My first pair of Salomon shoes!
 
They are the reason why I tried to run at least 1/3 of the route. I believe they would provide enough protection to my feet. I still hurt one toenail on a long downhill but that was my fault as I did not fasten the "shoelaces."

I almost forgot to mention those stairs. Even though I was amazed by my new running shoes, too many stairs on trails is still a pain. In interviews that I conducted, runners always express their dislike of those steps in mountains. I could not feel the same pain until now. My legs are still hurting probably because I ran most of the downhills (A LOT of STAIRS) and I could feel the bigger impact on my knees and my thighs on stairs comparing to natural trails. 
 
Can't wait to go for another hike and run!
 
Route description
 
Starts at Repulse Bay Beach 100m east along the beach from the 7-11 store, then first left turn on road heading uphill steep road to South Bay Road and left again up South Bay road to next round-a-bout (near Petrol station) then right turn up South Bay Close that takes you up a dead end with stairs on left leading to trail to Repulse Bay Gap (Tsin Shui Wan Au).
 
LEFT turn up Wilson trail stairs until first intersection 100m up and left turn on Tsz Lo Lan Shan Path trail contouring around Violet Hill. Stay on trail all the way which eventually after 2km turns into a cement catchwater and stay on all the way until the very end at Wong Nai Chung Gap and turn right up stairs. This trail leads up around 1km past a white trig, drops down 100m into a valley then up a dirt trail again until a signed junction where you turn right on Wilson Trail and head down path which has some stair sections until same 4 way junction you passed earlier.
 
Then turn sharp left at this 4 way junction and stay on trail which turns on to a paved catchwater until the end when you reach a bridge and cross turn right on paved road and then turn right at next signed junction at the reservoir dam and follow Tai Tam Reservoir Road downhill 1km until water check point by right turn leading to Intermediate reservoir.
 
Follow trail around reservoir and uphill to Repulse Bay gap bridge (Tsin Shui Wan Au) and turn left and sharp right by rubbish bins 3meter later and take same trail you came up earlier back down to South Bay Close, then on road downhill turning LEFT on South Bay Road and turn right down by shopping centre and turn LEFT by 7-11 and on to sand on beach and run along sand on beach until finish in front of childrens playground by Classified restaurant and coffee shop.
