Race Swag

Yesan is farming country, a fact reflected by the contents of the gift bag. Runners were given a jar of apple jam, a bag of hot apple pepper paste, two small packages of locally grown rice, and a finisher's medal. In addition to the bag of goodies, I also won a door prize, the black fanny pack you can see on the right. I couldn't really see myself using it, and didn't really want to carry it home, so I passed it along to the owner of the hotel. Lee was upset I didn't get to choose one of the other door prizes, a 20 kg bag of rice, which he liked for its originality. Had I won the rice, however, I think he may have been less than impressed with the task of carrying it all the way back to Seoul.
