What kind of runner would I be if I didn't take time from Bangkok to report on the biggest running event I've ever heard of?
On August 31st, runners from 25 different cities around the globe will compete in what Nike has dubbed The Human Race.
In America, official races will be held in Austin, New York, LA, and Chicago.
In Japan, the setting will be beautiful Mt. Fuji, of course; make the commute from Tokyo and Osaka.
More than one million are expected to compete in the 10K, so mark your calendars.
