Running with Moov

The irony of writing a blog on my new tracker right after I published a post how running without trackersΒ is more fun is not lost on me. But you could also say that if a tracker is able to convince me, it must be special! And yes, Moov is cool! I stumbled upon Moov Now […]

Running without A Tracker is More Fun!

I run to stay healthy, to keep my insomnia under control and because it’s an easy exercise when I travel. I’ve always run without trackers: I map out my runs online and I know my average speed because I look at my start and stop times. And sometime I participate in runs and they will […]

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 Orlando

I was in Orlando for a conference and I had a full schedule, starting at breakfast all the way up to dinner. So I had to schedule my run before dawn, while it was still dark. The hotel had a great gym, but when it’s nice and warm I like to run outside. I realized […]

Running in Chicago

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 […]
