Moving Mountains

In the summer of 2016, just after my sixtieth birthday and inspired by one of my heroes, Catalan ultra runner Kilian Jornet, I decided to embark on an odyssey to the Spanish Pyrenees.

The great Sarva Pyrenees run – we did it!

The azure blue of the Mediterranean Sea was on my right and to my left 524 miles of one of the most spectacular mountain ranges in Europe - the

Mind Body & Soul or how running can change your life!

Mind Body & Soul or the connection between running and spirituality in the broadest sense - what a topic! I was a keen sportsman in my youth and a lover of the great outdoors - tennis, rackets, real tennis and skiing but running never really figured in my repertoire and it always struck me as being a rather dull and arduous past time. That all
