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

Other than that preparations are taking their normal shambolic shape.

Trans Italia 2016

With the Pyrenees well and truly in the rear view mirror, its time to turn my attention to the next great challenge- running across Italy from the Adriatic to the Mediterranean - Trans Italia 2016. I've found a route that starts in Cattolica and finishes on the West coast in Marina Di Cecina some 350km later. It is based loosely on  the Dall'Adriatico al Tirreno Team Relay

Lake Como Marathon

What a trip, what an adventure and what a marathon. Our road trip, which consisted of an all day hop through France and Switzerland before winding our way through the hairpins of the northern Italy warrants a write -up all to itself! So let's concentrate on day 2 of the trip - the marathon itself. We were out taking some pictures of the lake before
