My first podcast!

Yes my first podcast! – the other day I got an opportunity to be a guest on the Todd Nevins “Go Hunt Life” podcast. I didn’t know quite what to expect but Todd was so easy going that the whole experience was a blast. It’s amazing to think that he was somewhere in Texas and I was several thousand miles away sitting in my kitchen

The road to Cecina

The road to Cecina - So I had got to Day 7 and what should be my last day on my epic run across Italy. 260km and some 19,000 feet in the bag and just 40km to go; and what's more I had been promised it was downhill all the way and the sun might even come out too. I trotted through the cobbled streets

A “vanity” injury

Unbelievable isn't it! How I managed to run 525 miles across the Pyrenees without picking up a significant injury and then, like a bus, they came in pairs as soon as I returned to the UK! Injury 1 -cuts on the upper foot Ok so I admit it this was a really proper vanity injury! Having worn my amazing Dynastar Dynafit trail shoes for 7 weeks

Visca Catalunya!

Visca Catalunya - long live Catalonia! Catalonia - home to the breathtaking Pyrenees, the vibrant city of Barcelona and the gorgeous beaches of the Mediterranean, it really is the region that has it all. And of course it's a runners' paradise too, not surprising when you consider its most famous citizen is the great Kilian Jornet! But it's not Barcelona or the sandy beaches of

My interview on the BBC!

Well I did it - I managed to complete my interview on the BBC without making a complete horlicks of it! It was fantastic day and great to get a view of what goes on behind the scenes. I was on with ballet dancer Wayne sleep (who was an absolute hoot) and bricklayer turned astronomer Gary Fildes who was a charming and very switched on

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. I resolved to run the length of the Pyrenees from Cap Higuer on the Atlantic coast to Cap de Creus on the Mediterranean Sea. The run would cover a distance of 500 miles

The great Sarva Pyrenees run – we did it!

Last Sunday, 3rd July 2016 at 5:45pm I wended my way up the final few yards of volcanic path to the Cap de Creus lighthouse and the end of my epic run across the Spanish Pyrenees. 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

Pyrenees – a mission!

Running with a purpose I admit it! I run for the shear enjoyment of it and the huge diversity it offers, the challenge, the excitement, the peace, the tranquility, pitting your wits against the elements, connecting with nature, overcoming physical and mental barriers and yes the escape too. However a chance meeting last week has given a new purpose to my Pyrenean Adventure. My Sister

Road to Berlin

#8marathons8countries8days - Road to Berlin   What possessed us to try and run 8 marathons in 8 countries in 8 days I'll never know - suffice is to say that we are always up for a challenge and there didn't seem to be a bigger one than that! My running partner, Marlena, and I picked up our trusty Landrover from Blue Moose Graphics who were
