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

My marathon journey

I'm often asked how my marathon journey started - well here's the story, warts and all ... "Do you want any help with your bag Andrew", one of my workmates asked as I stood, bent over the railings, halfway up the metal staircase. "I'll be fine thanks" I replied as I continued my slow, painful progress up the stairs, each step sending a searing pain through

Viva Barcelona … even in the rain!

There was an air of anticipation as the plane came in low over the Mediterranean and touched down at Barcelona Airport. Deja vu for me as I, along with 10,000 other competitors, had run my very first marathon here in 2013 - in fact this was the run that had started my endurance running adventure. The following morning, bright and early after a hearty breakfast, Marlena
