Neither running nor blogging have really taken off for me this year, but perhaps my body (and soul) need this period of hybernation… In the mean time I give in to the things I enjoy… cooking with Philip; re-aquanting myself with Parkruns and going out for a cheeky run between storms. I will – I…

Muddy weekends and a bath! Despite a bit of a dip in my running, I made sure we took full advantage of the mud over the spent the last few weekends! This included a birthday run for me (of which you will hear more) and a few bike rides with Philip! We are now all…

Snowdonia Marathon Eryri review

I love the colour and noise of a large city marathon, but could I do it on a cold, rainy morning in Llanberis? My experience of Snowdonia Marathon!

Have you heard the story of Tsutomu Yamaguchi, the only man to have survived both atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

Prepare now for the story of Demi Tsekrekou, one of many to have survived the cancellation of both half marathons in Leicester and Peterborough!

As a child I had a fascination with wild places, and in particular forests. Probably a combination of being exposed to them as magical places where adventure took place (I am of the Smurf and Asterix generation after all!) and their relative rarity in Athens where I grew up! One of the very few memories…
