Running in Pretoria

My first visit to South-Africa will not be my last one: what an amazing, beautiful country. My plane landed close to midnight, so it was dark and warm as we drove out of the airport to Pretoria, where I was staying. I had a full program which did not allow a lot of time for […]

Running in San Francisco

While traveling I had some free time so I spent the weekend in San Fransisco. On Saturday I rented a bike and pedaled across the Golden Gate Bridge. If you know how to ride a bike that is simply the best way to see the city – you can cover a lot of ground and […]

Running in New York

It was pitch dark and freezing cold when I left my hotel at 5.30am in the morning after donning running gear. I was staying in a hotel close to Columbus and as I only was in New York for 2 days, I was determined to run in Central Park. It had snowed the day before […]

I happened to be in Chicago the week before the Chicago Marathon – had I paid attention I would have extended my stay… too late for that. However, I enjoyed being there so close to the action as I got to meet many runners. I don’t think I ever ran a trail outside of a […]

Running in Vegas

I’m back in Vegas for a conference. And to help my body adjust to the change in time zones, I run in the early morning even though it’s already warm. If you slow down your regular pace a bit, it’s a fun run. I usually run here around 6am when the temperature is still comfortable. […]

Running Olympic Barcelona

Whenever I am traveling for business, I try to map my runs in such a way that I see at least some of the sights. And when I traveled to Barcelona, I was set on running around the Olympic venue. I had seen that my hotel was not too far from there, but it was […]
