The road to Alhambra

If you are regular visitors to this blog you will know that I decided to pull out of the TransItalia Ultra next month. I got injured during the ThamesPath 100 and just haven't been able to put the miles in to prepare myself for the 266km, 50 hour dash across Italy. Never mind I did run across Italy in March albeit in a more leisurely

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

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

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

The first three Running Guides are on their way! I've been working hard('ish) on the country running guides over the last few weeks and the first three will be available very soon. They are going to be packed with information from all the countries we've visited and run in over the last 18 months - the first will include guides on Lake Como, Champagne and Berlin

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
